Two more from me….
Last year my son’s upperclass teammates, nicknamed one of the fresh pitchers “Lent” because the coach, whom is a devout Catholic, gave up on him after a couple early season outings…..kinda harsh, but I still chuckle. This nickname just might be a baseball thing.
My sons nickname is Bobes. When 8 or 9, I stumbled across his search history on his ITouch. He looked up “ naked lady bobes”. I proceeded to have a come to Jesus moment with him. Well the story made its way to a family friend who happened to be his bus driver. She started greeting him every morning with “Good morning Bobes”, his fellow students picked up on it and it spread. The name stuck. The best part is very few know the origin of the name.
