Funny names

Postby Petey » Thu Dec 11, 2003 3:14 pm

We had a post on these a long time ago, so I thought I'd bring it up for the new guys. What's the funniest name in Sports???

My personal favorite was Harry Colon who played for the Lions in the early 90's.

Why the heck would you name your kid Harry if you had the last name of Colon?

I have an old baseball card of a dude who played, I think, for the Expos in the 80's. His name was : Razor Shines.

Isn't there a race car driver named : Dick Trickle :-D


I'm sure I'll chime back in w/ some more as I think of them.

Harry Colon, perhaps where his parents were from it wasnt pronounced Hairy.

Where I come from , when we say Harry, it sounds like Harry, not Hairy :-b

Wasn't there a black Indy car driver named Willie T Ribbs?

How about that Corvette collector guy Dick Yanko?

Ben Gay! Hahahahaha!

...I think he plays/played for the Carolina Panthers. I can't really think of any funny names. Although, I 'spose Ben Gay could be found humorous...
