What’s in a Funny Name?

I’m watching the Detroit-Baltimore pre-season game on TV, and the Ravens just put Tyrod Taylor in at QB. I’ve always thought NFL moms come up with the best names. Tyrod? Is he a QB or part of your car’s steering mechanism? Does he throw passes to the tie rod end? The NFL also boasts great names like Flozell, LaDanian, Craphonso, Kabeer, Taco, D’Brickashaw, Jermichael, Captain, Mister, Frostee, Gosder, Syd’Quan, Beanie, Atari, Zoltan, and on and on and on. Insert your own jokes as necessary.

But the greatest name in sports isn’t even in the NFL. It’s an Olympian, and I don’t mean Destinee Hooker. It’s Chinese gymnast Dong Dong.

Warren is Redskins fan living in Bronco country. He’s co-founder of the Team Tomorrow ski and snowboard team, and a guy at the bar last Sunday told him, “you know a lot about football for a weirdo.” His favorite conversation about football happened sitting inside a giant volcano at Colorado's regional Burning Man high on LSD.

  1. I learned a new one today: Barkevious Mingo, defensive end at LSU.

  2. And how could I forget about Titans CB Alterraun Verner?

  3. The Redskins recently released former Cardinals and Steelers cornerback Crezdon Butler.

    Seahawks tackle Breno Giacomini got benched in the game against the Panthers today. Bit if it seems these funny named people are playing poorly, Captain Munnerlyn had a pick-6 in the same game.

  4. Tyrod has a cousin–Cardale Jones–by inclination if not by blood.

    “Why should we have to go to class when we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain’t come here to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS.” — Ohio State backup quarterback Cardale Jones
