Nickname O' Fame

 Charles Tillman - Chicago Bears

I know that the Legion of Doom is still underway, but I'd like to propose a new IDYFT exclusive: The Nickname O' Fame. So many choices!

I would like to start with just one: current Bears CB, #33 Charles "Peanut" Tillman.

There are numerous serious entries in this pantheon and I'm sure Peanut Tillman didn't make any of them (Nor Booger McFarland for that matter).

What about the list of nicknames that people should have but didn't?

I ask only because "Piss-Hands" Alou, and the Polynesian Pirate (Esara Tuaolo) seem so obvious.

adam "pacman" jones is right up there too.

being a thuggish NFL player, he probably cheats on Ms. Pacman quite often.

I'm kind of with Garwood on this one. Real nicknames have been done.

When we wrap up the Legion of Doom (which we will soon) this will be a very fun project

So I've been told that real nicknames have been done, and yet a dude named Peanut isn't on the list?

That's my fucking point.

If I want to listen to some wandering-eye vaguely asian looking blacky making up stupid things to say over highlight clips, I'll listen to ESPN's advice.

They probably just cut and pasted fucking Wankopedia for their "article."

I hope your dog rapes you.

How about atheletes who have changed their names legally, from say Brian Williams to Bison Dele. Rate which is better, which brought more success. Williams won an NBA ring while he was Williams, as Dele, he was murdered by his own brother and some pirates off the coast of South America. Fun!
