Move over black people and celebrities, make some room on the silly and ridiculous name bus. Make room for whom, you ask? Why for the wonderful world of lacrosse, of course!
I know lacrosse isn’t really a sport covered extensively on the blog and podcast, but this is a special occasion. One that I think most people can appreciate.
Inside Lacrosse, in a remarkable feat of self-awareness, has been collecting the most outrageously-named lacrosse players in the country for the past seven years. Well, for 2015, comes year number eight. And boy, is it a doozey.
I’m pretty partial to the obvious brother-duo of “Wellington Stanwick” and “Shackleford Stanwick,” the oddly Roman-numeral-ed “IV Stucker” (Is it “Ivy”? Or is it “Four”?), and the 1970s-era Batman villain alter-ego “Brickman House.”
Go check it out. There were even so many girls they had to make THREE teams! (Oralee Hespenheide and Glade Nugent? One of those seriously looks like a fistful of Scrabble tiles, the other seems like the nickname of Ted Nugent’s younger, un-talented, male cousin, Richard.)
