While watching the Duke/LSU game, I kept hearing them make reference to one player as "Big Baby". Over and over again. Somewhat annoying by the end. I realize that most people don't have control over their nicknames, but as a sports figure, that one would make me feel kind of, oh I don't know, goofy :) . There was also a football player for WVU a couple of years ago nicknamed "PacMan", and his mother is interviewed on TV saying that he was called that name as a child, because of the way he aggressively sucked when breast feeding. Talk about embarassing.

Any other odd nicknames you all can think of ?

The Fridge is still my favorite, but...

William Perry was The Fridge for the Bears several years ago, when nicknames were still a novelty, and it fit him so well it's still one of my favorites. My brother was Big Bird at U. of San Francisco in the late '60s. He was 6'8" when that was big, and had hair that looked just like Big Bird's feathers, and the headline writers liked it: "Bird hits 4 in Dons' 3rd loss."
