This non-story just came across the wire and for inexplicable reasons got me fired up. Glen “Big Baby” Davis has decided he wants to change his image. The first step is to drop the nickname “Big Baby.” Davis claims that from now on he wants to be known as “Uno Uno.”
Uh, Glen? You can’t just pick your own nickname. If you could, I’d henceforth be known as “The Assassin.”
Besides, there isn’t a single person on the planet who fits their nickname better than you.
Exhibit 1: You look like a half-sucked Milk Dud and have the face of an eight-year old.
Exhibit 2: Older kids make you cry if they bully you a little.
Exhibit 3: You missed the start of the season following surgery for a broken thumb. You broke that thumb in a fight with a childhood friend.
Exhibit 4: You were recently fined $25,000 for “directing inappropriate language” at a fan during a game in Detroit last Wednesday.
Exhibit 5: That same fan called you “fat boy” during that game and you let it get to you.
So, you see Glen, you’re never going to be anything other than a Big Baby. Just get used to it.
