Nickname Database

Nino Colla | Saturday, March 08, 2008 | | | Best Blogger Tips
Here is the database of nicknames that I frequently use for all the players. I add more as time goes on and we have a grave-yard for all the players that have come and gone. I can be democratic about this process and always looking for new suggestions. Josh Barfield was always one that stumped me for some time and he eventually left without a nickname. Some of these aren't used on a regular basis, if at all, but they are just fun to say.
