    Draft Class Nicknames

    Anyone know the nick names of the draft class? Here's what I could find.

    1. Jarvis - Sacman - not sure I like it
    2. Bell - Chocolate Diamond - Did he leave a surprise in someone's closet? - this one's official but I don't like it. how bout shortening it to CDeez
    3. Wheaton - He reminds me of the breakfast of champions, but couldn't find anything
    4. Shmarko - Shark - makes sense
    4. Landry - Doc Holliday - We're gonna see tshirts saying fear the stache - not sure i like this one
    5. Hawthorne - Swooshy cause of 22 Nike symbols
    6. Brown - JB
    6. V Williams - Bug as in VW Bug
    7. N Williams - Samford and Son

    I need simple ways to refer to these guys. And I'm not typing out Chocolate Diamond.

    "Bell" seems pretty simple

    Jarvis: Meathead (he asked for it with the Subway food statue).

    Bell: Rung (he plows through the hole, and defenders get their bell rung trying to stop him).

    Wheaton: Crusher (I'm not a big Star Trek guy, but I watch the Big Bang Theory, and therefore know from the bowling episode that Wil Wheaton's character name on Star Trek was Wesley Crusher. It's better than referencing Wheaton's character in Stand By Me who pulled a bloody leech from his underwear).

    Shark's good for Shamarko.

    Landry: Fedora (he was named after Tom Landry, after all. Or if folks still carry an anti-Dallas grudge, we can just rename him Noll Jones).

    Hawthorne: Sweet (after the hotel chain Hawthorne Suites).

    Okay, that's probably enough.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    To which Ziggy?












    I'd say he resembles Ziggy Marley the most.

    He fits right in with the Melody Makers. Although his Subway replica looks more like Ziggy the cartoon.

    I had no idea Will Wheaton was on star trek. I met him once. Really cool guy. Super big nerd. He looked the same as he did as a kid in Stand By Me but with a beard.

    I also had some beer with the original meat head Jared from Subway. I stayed at a hotel one time in DC while they had their national Subway convention. There were like a million franchise owners at the Gaylord. And I went to have dinner with a couple co workers at one of the pubs and I had no idea I was sitting next to Jared. It was kinda funny that everyone from Subway was almost afraid of him and treated him like a celeb. He wasnt so nice to people from what I remember, but he was friendly to us because we didn't work for Subway.

    Good memories.

    Complete accident. I got in the elevator with 20 marketing people from Subway that were all jazzed up about Subway. And then I was telling someone about it and they were like, we know we're from Subway too. THese GayLord hotels are huge so I'm assuming there were 10,000+ Subway people there. It was ridiculous.

    I have the weirdest run ins with people when I travel. Like another time last year I was in Toronto and I was on an elevator in my hotel with 5 models and the CEO of American Apparel. They were having a company meeting that night at this hotel and after dinner when I came back it was like a hot chick zoo in this place. Looking back, I should have gotten in the t-shirt business.

    I would say your correct, but I thought a slight resemblance to Hood too.
