5 Funniest Sports Names

BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistNovember 9, 2011

The sports world is filled with them. I’m not talking about highlight plays or awful injuries—I am talking about silly names that invoke chuckles long before we get an image of the person’s face.

Now keep in mind that there are dozens out there. Before you recommend I go look at a Dick Pole or consider Dick Trickle, I have.

These are the special few that called out to me on this day of names. Sure they may have athletic talent that placed them in special categories in the sports world, but it’s their names that make them memorable to all.

I want to give a special shout-out to the parents of these athletes for either being completely oblivious or having a great sense of humor.

I also want to give a thanks to the athletes themselves that say screw changing my name—I am who I am. I can hardly find fault with that when you are bigger and faster than anyone who would dare make fun of you.

Here is a heaping does of silliness…in name form.
