    I thought O’Neill’s nickname was “ROBOCOP” because he’s kind of put together like the real Robocop. Maybe the nickname didn’t stick?

    Dunno. Maybe he did not like the nickname others gave him.

    Poncedeleon has to be ”Ponce” or “Explorer” or possibly “FOY” (Fountain of Youth). Just using his last name doesnt cut it with it being so long and having other options.

    Shouldn’t Carpenter change his nickname to “Hot Salsa” or something?

    It might be because he thinks this is as stupid as I do.

    He seems a little more serious than others on the team. I like the fire from some of the younger guys on the staff.

    The personal nicknames I have for a couple of these guys are “Gomer” for Gomber. He just looks like a Gomer to me, and it fits his name quite well. “Goober” is a good one too.

    And I call Hudson “North & South”.

    Since July, you could call Carpenter “The Natural”.

    ….oh, and I like 14Ny’s nickname for our manager of “Schlitz”. That is a classic – not sure if he means it in a derogatory way, but it really is a great nickname and I do not think of it as derogatory at all.
