Nicknames

Post by Ravi Ramkissoonsingh » Sun Apr 26, 2009 5:21 pm

Why can't they be more inventive with nicknames in hockey? I have been watching a couple of the games today on TSN and they are calling Darren Pang, "Panger"? Is that not the most ridiculous nickname that you have ever heard? Yeah, I know that none of this means anything but it is annoying me for some reason and I needed to vent.
There is one thing that no Argo fan should ever forget - Rob Ford, Doug Ford, Paul Godfrey, Phil Lind and Larry Tanenbaum are all pure evil!

Hockey and we Canadians have never been know for our nickname giving prowess... usually just tagging an "ie" to the end is as good as it gets... eh Gordie... eh Dougie!

:tease: :wink: :lol:

Look. We can go round and round about this all the live long day. Let's keep it simple. I embody amazement. Can you dig on that? Good. Then meet me on the corner of rock and roll, and bring a flask of something that burns.

Nicknames aren't what they once were in pro sports. Hockey used to have:

The Golden Jet Bobby Hull
Terrible Teddy Green
Johnny "Pieface" Mackenzie
Derek "Turk" Sanderson
Dave "Tiger" Williams
The Golden Gorf Bobby Guindon
Bill "The Tractor" Lesuk
Peter "Silky" Sullivan
Bill "The Beast" Juzda
"Wild" Bill Ezenicki
Maurice "The Rocket" Richard
Henri "The Pocket Rocket" Richard
August 8, 1961
HAMILTON TIGER-CATS 38
BUFFALO BILLS 21
The Tiger-Cats are the reigning champions of CFL/NFL football.

Yeah the best nicknames are usually ones that don't incorporate the last or first name. 3 ex Flames have neat nicknames: Jamie McLennan is noodles, Tony Amonte is bone, and Dave Lowry is pie.

I knew a guy in university nicknamed T-Bag... or, more accurately Tea Bag.

Not saying how he got it, just be sure to never be the first to pass out at a party... :lol:

I miss the days when lines had nicknames like "The French Connection" in Buffalo.
