You know who was fantastic? Jack Nicklaus. I’m not talking about being good at golf, he was just awesome. He got to exist in a time when adult men could be famous for their trade and look and dress and act like a reserve astronaut at all times. Look at the people around him. Do you see any 34 year old bloggers wearing suits that don’t fit, scribbling into little notepads with a smirk on their face about the funny headline they’re gonna write the next day? Nope. Just a bunch of 70-f**king year old men, smiling and laughing about the golf. And his nickname was “The Golden Bear.” Yeah, Jack Nicklaus was fantastic.
Who do we have like Jack Nicklaus now? Ben Crane? He puts funny videos on the Internet. Tiger Woods sends sexts about needing you right now. If Jack Nicklaus could text, he’d do it with his entire fist, and that is not a rerun Chuck Norris joke, that is historic sports fact.
The Best Nicknames in Sports - The reason for the opening blurb. Travel back in time to that wonderful, bygone era when pictures could be cool without nipple slips or funny faces. “The Golden Bear” is still the best, but “Puddin’ Head” is pretty close. And “Crazy Legs.” I would do anything for my peers to call me “Crazy Legs.” [Life]
Top 5 Signature Go-To Moves in the NBA - This is a great list, even if it reminds me of how much I used to love Tim Hardaway and the UTEP 2 Step. Basketball was awesome when you could just pick up the ball and run around with it. Then Tim Hardaway had to open his mouth, and I stopped liking basketball so much. [Hoop Doctors]
