No, Landis was from Ohio. His father had suffered a wound at Kennesaw Mountain in the Civil War; thus the name. (I have no idea why the second N was left off, though.)

Hmm... this would have made a good trivia question. :-)

I kind of like:

Jung Bong and Kiko Calero.

That "Wonderful Terific" was pretty cool though too.

Sued them? For what? They were simply amazed that a man with that name got over all the teasing he got from the other boys in elementary school and went on to have a productive life!


He sued ESPN. They gave in and stopped reporting on where he finished every race but for a month afterwards instead of Dick Trickle finished in 32nd place they just said You Know Who finished in 32nd place. Classic.

I remember Rusty Kuntz, he used to be the first base coach for the Fish. One of my new favorite names is Seung Song of the Expos.
