What's in a name. Part II

Just read this in the Christmas edition of the Guardian. It appears I'm not the only one not impressed (or is that impressed) with Fred.

The Uwe Fuchs/Stefan Kuntz Memorial Award For An Amusingly Named And Really Actually Existing Sportz Dude ... would have gone to Lyon's Brazilian superstriker Fred - were it not for the existence of Real Salt Lake's defensive midfielder Seth Trembly.

The rest of the article includes some gems from the whole weird world of "sportz".

Happy Christmas

  1. Hmmmmmm, not sure I agree with the outcome. Fred would have unquestionably received my vote. Pele, Ronaldino, Gento, Stephano..... yessss, Brazilian, but Fred ???!!!

    Also, an all time first for the Guardian. It is the first time they have made me laugh !!!

    Happy New Year from Eski Kanka.
