100 Sports Nicknames You Can't Forget

I know what you're thinking. There is no way that you can possibly make a list of all of the best nicknames in sports without forgetting a couple.

Truth is, I have many more than 100, but I think you might nod off after 150.

So I've decided to use my best judgment in selecting 100 of what I consider the greatest nicknames, mostly in American sports.

I'm a fairly recent fan of futbol, or American soccer for those of you who consider it blasphemy to associate our nation's unofficial pastime with a sport that...is actually played with feet. But I digress.

Order is not important, but I will try to leave the best for last. Honestly, I love the idea of attributing nicknames to our most beloved athletes and I will attempt to do them justice in the following slides. Accompanying each name will be a video and it's my goal to find the most ridiculous clip of each player.

Even after combing my memory, I'm sure there are some that I couldn't remember, so be sure to make me aware in the comments. I shall gladly make a list of the "100 Forgotten Nicknames."
