Say Hey, Haven't I Heard that Before...Part 2

Awesome post Mike. I too am a fan of the nicknames. Watching the Expos growing up I loved Oil Can Boyd, Andre "the Hawk" Dawson, Gary "the Kid" Carter...

One of the all-time best nicknames was Eddie "the Eagle" Edwards...remember that guy from England who was a ski-jumper at the Calgary Olympics? He would jump 10 feet and the crowd would go wild.

Some of my other fav's include; Jack "the Golden Bear" Nicklaus, Robert "Chief" Parrish, William "the Refridgerator" Perry, Kordell "Slash" Stewart, Jerome "the Bus" Bettis (those are for Acker), "Mookie" Wilson, and the best is "Tiger" Woods. It's the best because his given name is "Eldrick".
