Man I wish I could have heard Rush say that in person. Even through the writing, he sounds utterly thrilled.
Anyway, with the arrival of Ochocinco this year, we thought we'd take a look a look back at some of the most entertaining last names on jerseys over the years. And just for good measure, we also have some of the best last name jersey combinations as well.
So, let's get to it:
Rod Smart: You could make the argument that the former XFLer and Carolina Panther is who started Chad's bizarre fascination with changing his last name. Smart's jersey became recognized across the sports world almost immediately and even caused several XFL players to change their jersey to "I Hate He" and "I Hate He Too."
Dean Windass: Longtime soccer player who currently plays for Premiership club Hull City. Definitely has one of the best last names ever.
Gregor Fucka: European basketball big man. Can't even imagine the chants during during away games.
Clayton Stoner: Currently an enforcer with the Minnesota Wild, which is a somehwhat odd designation given his last name.
Rusty Kuntz: Former big league player, currently a first base coach with the Royals. You knew he'd be on his list.
Miroslav Satan: Currently with the Pittsburgh Penguins, it's a shame this guy never played for the Devils. He even looks a lot like Satan too. Not to mention his Yahoo! player page ends in 666.
Bartolo Colon: Had to have at least one Colon on this list.
Danny Shittu: Naturally we'll follow Colon up with this Premier League and Nigerian national player Shittu.
Antonio Bastardo: Current Phillies farmhand. Have a feeling if he ever makes the bigs, his jersey will sell like hotcakes in Philly.
JJ Putz: Has pitched like one since joining the Mets.
Todd Weiner: Atlanta Falcons offensive tackle who protects the QB from getting jammed on his blind side.
And now for some of the best jersey combinations of all time:
