My favorite nickname that I have bestowed is Mr. February for Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. Why Mr. February? He was the first winning QB in a Super Bowl played in February and has since won two others and is playing for his fourth on February 3, 2008.

"Oil Can" Boyd is just infamous.

Johnny "Double No-Hit" VandeMeer is pretty heavy. Just to not only DO that, but have it said anytime you're mentioned is impressive.

Oh, Booger: Good lookin' out on the burgers. I was always partial to the McJordan! :)

My Favorite Nickname

The Ismail Brothers:Raghib,Quadry, and Sulaiman. The "Rocket", "The Missile",and "The Bomb"-gotta love 3 brothers w/great nicknames!! Also...William "The Refrigerator" Perry's younger bro' Michael Dean Perry=nicknamed "The Icebox",or "Mini-Fridge". MDP apparently had a McDonald's burger named after him in the Cleveland area. A "monster-mac"( as I remember it many Halloweens ago,regionally);essentially it was like a Big-Mac with 3 or 4 meat patties and bacon. That sounds good I'm going to try to special order one of them bad-boys next time Im at MickyD's- "Gimme a MDP!"Super-Sized!
