    Best Athlete Nicknames

    I was listening to some Creedence Clearwater Revival, the song "Bad Moon Rising" came on....and I immediately thought of Andre "Bad Moon" Rison, what are some other of the more iconic nicknames of athletes?

    It's not a nickname but it was used in a line. Chelsea "Don't Call Me Mary" Poppins

    Calling Anthony Thomas "The A-Train" was pretty awesome. Wish his career would have gone better, though.

    But you've gotta love "Broadway Joe" Namath

    and Larry "Grandma-ma" Johnson

    Rod Smart is a really good one. Has anyone else ever been known more for their nickname than him?

    Here's another goofy one:

    Tony "The Croatian Sensation" Kukoc.

    Re: Best Athlete Nicknames

    Don't know if you wanna consider this a nickname since most of the world knows him by it but..........Magic Johnson was my favorite because, with the showtime Lakers, he was pure magic!!!!

    Chris Berman might be a ****** announcer, but some of his Bermanisms are pretty damn funny.
