What if someone named - Kiko Martinez, or kevin Martinez came into baseball --- would his nickname follow Martha Stuart's franchise? K-Mart? or what about Mylo Rod? My-rod? ok ok so maybe the last one isnt plausible, but the first is. What are some funny nicknames you can come up with or have been called in your lifetimes? How did they come about?
My nickname is the Mongoose. The name came about when i "caught" a lieing "snake" - the guy was a complete idiot and said he hadn't stolen my wallet (8th grade, immature fool). I just reached into his back pocket (it was visible, don't worry lol ), yanked it out and whapped in the face with it, and walked away. Kinda weird but funny in a way.
Kenyon Martin of the NBA goes by the nickname K-Mart.
Yeah, I was just going to say that.
