Word on the street is that Dominic McGuire and Roger Mason Jr. both have new nicknames. You see, Nancy, the DC Sports Bog reader sponsored some prizes and a contest was born. I initially campaigned for ‘Taser’ (made popular on Bullets Forever) as McGuire’s nickname. However, in the spirit of competition, I started suggesting more possibilities. Now for the results (decided by Nancy herself this past Friday night):
Roger Mason Jr.
1st Place: Tres (WizardsExtreme.com)
2nd Place: Dr. Tre (Ahern Inquirer)
Personally, I still like the Potomac Rainmaker – seems like Mason’s nickname needs to have a hometown flavor. Then again, Antonio Daniels was on TV the other night saying that the players call him Mase-ON.
1st Place: The Cleaner (yours truly)
2nd Place: McFly (CK in GA from VA)
3rd Place: LiveWire (doclinkin)
Now, I’m sure there are some out there who disagree with Nancy’s decision (more words from the street indicate that MacGuyver was also popular for D-Mac)……but it is what it is. Who knows? One day there may be a web poll allowing for a democratic decision. But this time, Nancy was Queen. So, in honor of Dominic McGuire’s new nickname, I present this photoshop:
