    Yuengling Lager  LOL

    That will probably be the next wave of naming rights in professional sports.  Won't "Ocho Cinco" feel like a fool when his teammates start changing their names for millions of dollars when he did it for free?  Then again, he probably won't feel like a fool.  Something tells me that he has no sense of shame.

    Gene UBRIACO (means The Drunk in Italian)

    He grew up with Phil Esposito in the Sault, and he coached after his playing days.

    Re: Hockey Names

    Didn't the Devils or Columbus have a big D-guy named Jean Luc Grand Pierre?  I also remember a player named Terry Yake.  (True, its pronounced "Yake" as in "rake" but you all know what it looks like.)

    Re: Hockey Names

    My favourite all time would be Bunny Larocque and then there is this guy

    Taro Tsujimoto is an imaginary ice hockey player who was legally drafted by the National Hockey League's Buffalo Sabres 183rd overall in the 11th round of the 1974 NHL Entry Draft.[1][2]

    The Sabres' General Manager at the time, Punch Imlach, was reportedly fed up with the slow drafting process via the telephone, a process intended to keep draft picks secret from the rival World Hockey Association. Imlach decided to have some fun at the expense of the league and President of 28 years, Clarence Campbell, and found a common Japanese name in a Buffalo-area phone book.[3] Thus, when the 11th round surfaced, Imlach chose to select star center Taro Tsujimoto of the Japanese Hockey League's Tokyo Katanas,[1] "Katanas" being an approximation for "Sabres" in the Japanese language (both referring to types of swords). The NHL made the pick official, and so it was reported by all major media outlets including The Hockey News.[1][2]

    Imlach did not acknowledge the fake draft pick until weeks later. The NHL would eventually change the pick to an "invalid claim" for its official record-keeping purposes (Campbell not finding it nearly as funny as Imlach), but this was after Tsujimoto's name had appeared in several NHL publications.[1][2] Tsujimoto is still listed among Sabres' draft picks in the Sabres media guide.[4]

    Taro quickly became an inside joke for Sabres' fans and staffers.[3] For years after the pick, fans would chant "We Want Taro" when games at the Buffalo Memorial Auditorium became one-sided. In addition, for many years, banners would be hung from the balcony rail stating "Taro Says..." followed by a witty commment against an opponent or player for the opponent.
