My Favorite Nickname

Posted on: January 28, 2008 1:54 am

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.

One of my favorite nicknames, from a long time ago, is Elroy "Crazy Legs" Hirsch.  Played for the LA Rams.  Most of you are probably too young to have even heard of him.
