No. That's Chris Berman-type crap. His name is James Gordon Beckham. We should call him the Commissioner.

Chris "Jolie" Berman? For a while Beckham was "Gordo," the Spanish word for "fat" around here. I hope the kid doesn't have a cholesterol problem.

I don't love the nickname but when he does something good late in the game to help the Sox win being able to say, "bacon makes everything better" is kind of cool.

Nicknames are all pretty dumb. I don't see why one is any dumber than another.

Because that's not where it's at.

Gordon is no loser.

And finally, because Gordon does not have a devil's haircut. Or does he under that hat?


(This was probably only amusing to me.)

For the record, that beer tastes like ****. I bought two from Binny's last year because they were on sale for $1.00 / ea. and I couldn't drink more than a couple sips......

That comment brought me nausea, oh nausea.

And we're gone.

If you have to ask someone about if they like a nickname, or debate whether or not it is a viable nickname, the answer to both questions is no.

Nicknames either work or they don't. You can't force them. Besides, why does everyone have to have a nickname or some sort of shortened or half first name half last name garbage? Are we really that lazy in this country that we can't just call people by their names?

I always just call him "Becks." I thought Bacon was a terrible nickname at the time and it hasn't gotten any better since.

I haven't had the good fortune (or misfortune) of trying it. Is it only available in the Chicago market?

That's because Hawk is an idiot.

There was a poster on this site last summer who invented absolutely horrendous nicknames for players, much to the chagrin of doublem23.

Pretty much. The footballer is "Becks," so I automatically went for that back in '09.
