The ones I am mostly loving today are Frederick 'Mysterious' Walker, a nineteenth century baseballer, and Ed 'Too Tall' Jones, a 1980s American footballer.*
Not big news, you think, and you are right. But I just wanted to include this YouTube clip which I find funnier every time I watch it. It is some kid also nicknamed Too Tall and the bit I can't stop rewatching is about 40 seconds in when six goldheads who clearly don't want to tackle him run into each other as if auditioning for the Keystone Cops. I barely noticed it the first time, but by the twentieth... (Maybe this is a metaphor for how I repeat jokes until people more or less want to kill me. Maybe it is not.)
*In late-breaking news: the Denver Broncos' first round draft pick is Knowshon Moreno. Interesting first name. It comes from combining his father's nickname 'Knowledge' with his mother's name Varashon**/***
**This would have given me the name Geolope, and I am sorry to have missed out on that
***Who the hell knows where 'Varashon' came from?
