    Willie/Costas – the nickname thing is what got me started watching sports when I was just a kid in Vancouver in the 1950s. My favourite teams all had guys with great nicknames:

    Brooklyn Dodgers – PeeWee Reese, Preacher Roe, Duke Snider, Junior Gilliam

    LA Rams – CrazyLegs Hirsch, Deacon Dan Towler, Night Train Lane, Big Daddy Lipscombe, Jaguar Jon Arnett, and The Dutchman (Norm Van Brocklin)

    Montreal Canadiens – Boom Boom Geoffrion, Rocket Richard, Pocket-Rocket Richard, Le Gros Bil (Jean Beliveau)

    i”ll admit that not-a-one of the nicknames I’ve used to describe UTD’s current players rise to that level but – what can I say ? – I’m addicted.
