Greg "the peg" Legg

After looking at this guy's name, I've come to the conclusion that we could legitimately call him String Bean.

You KNOW he got bullied as a kid with a last name like that!

Roger, I think you got a big zit on your neck!

7. 1966 Topps #45 Jim Gentile

He's not a Jew, he's a Gentile.

Some Canadian Football League guys:

Bear Woods - With a bonus of being a white dude with dreads, and he simply signs his autographs 'BEAR'/

T-Dre Player - Sounds like you named your created Madden guy 'T-Dre', but forgot to give him a last name so he just got the generic one.

Pat Woodcock - Immaturity!

Brent Fullwood as opposed to partial wood.

Chansi Stuckey

Clay Harbor

Darren "come one"' Comeaux

Deon "go" Figures

Jeremy "if you" Sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweetie and wipe the seetie.

Kirk Lowdermilk as opposed to quieter milk.
