Darnell Dockett Has Quite Possibly The Funniest Nickname Ever
Like take this tiny tidbit from an East Valley Tribune article. In it we find out that Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett goes by the nickname........Fart Box.
"He takes these protein shakes where he's trying to keep himself healthy, but when it comes out we all suffer," [nose tackle Bryan] Robinson said. "It's nasty."
I don't really want to know that, but at the same time, it hilarious beyond belief. Although, I wonder what players telling people that does for team chemistry. I'd expect Dockett to rip one in revenge. Also, watch out on Sunday, Steelers.
Obviously, this nickname raises the great debate again of who has the greatest nickname ever in pro sports? Let's go some of the all time best.
Dominique "The Human Highlight Film" Wilkins
Pete "Pistol Pete" Maravich
David "Skywalker" Thompson
Dave "Cementhead" Semenko - Gretzky's personal on ice bodyguard
Marvin "The Human Eraser" Webster
Rod "He Hate Me" Smart
Al "The Mad Hungarian" Hrabosky
Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd
Craig "Walrus" Stadler
Billy "White Shoes" Johnson
Curtis "Cujo" Joseph
Jack "The Assassin" Tatum
Kevin “The Black Hole” McHale
Jared “The Pillsbury Throwboy” Lorenzen
Lance “Fat Elvis” / “The Big Puma” Berkman
Pat “The Little Ball of Hate” Verbeek
Anyway, there are plenty more I could go through, but Fart Box should at least take a spot on the all-time greatest sports nicknames list. Otherwise, I don't know what to believe in anymore.
