Card(s) of the Week:
Players with goofy names
For this week’s Card(s) of the Week, I chose to feature some interesting names that make me chuckle.
I mean, I guess there really is no real way to name a kid “Dick” and have it go over smoothly. These poor guys were blessed with classic combo’s. Reading these names kinda makes me wonder what mom and dad were thinking. Among all the names, ALL the names, Mr. Such was blessed with the winning first name, “Dick.” That poor guy likely put up with a lot of crap in grade school, and likely still does. For those of you about to procreate, do your kid a favor and put some thought into his name to avoid life-long public retribution.

Two words: Rusty Kuntz.
Or, rather, another player with a weird name: Wonderful Terrific Monds.
Dick Pole? I mean REALLY.
Wonderful Terrific Monds, oh man, I remember that guy. When I first saw that player, I thought is was some kind of joke. HA! Parents…
