Please explain the reasoning for Shan's nickname? Also you left out a couple.
-"Red" - not to be confused w/ "Commie", is Gordon's nn
- "His Name is" - aka "The Duke of Earl" aka Jason Lee aka "Broady" from Mall Rats

Douglas James,

Good additions, we will add those to version 2.0. As far as Shan's nickname, Seamus is the man to explain it...

quick clarification question - is "Crocodile OG," when said out loud, "Crocodile 'OG"'" or "Crocodile O.-G." Is it O then G or OG? I personally like "OG" but want to make sure I am speaking correctly.

Douglas James said...

When I wrote it I was thinking "O" then "G" as in rhyming w/ "Dundee"

Bobby O'Shea said...

Since Douglas James coined the phrase, we'll go with his pronunciation. For what it's worth, rhyming it with "Crocodile Dundee" was what I had in mind as well.

FWIW, some of us have called our beloved teams the "Commies" since well before this blogs' time.

It often drew fantastically evil looks from the Belle Meade crowd.
