The Cleveland Plain-Dealer has an entertaining story today about athletes using fake names on the road. They have a fun anecodte about Drew Gooden, but the real fun comes with the sidebar, which lists the fake names some players have used. Some highlights:
• Shaquille O'Neal: Vladamire Mandingo
• Tracy McGrady: T. Pistols
• Bimbo Coles: Donald Duck
• Tyrone Hill: Greg Norman
• Ricky Davis: Dicky Ravis
Those are all pretty funny, but nothing can possibly compare with "Dicky Ravis." Is he serious? Yeah, no one's gonna crack that code. This barely beat out his other alias, "Icky-ray Avis-day."
At this point, your humble editors Lill Weitch and Chick Randler would like you to respect their privacy and don't bother them in their respective hotels this holiday season.
