    Re: GREAT SPORTS NICKNAMES

    I'll go outside the USA for my favourite sports nickname...

    He was part of perhaps the best cricket team of all time - the West Indies team from 1975 on through the 80s (if you ever get the chance to see the documentary "Fire in Babylon", then do so - it is excellent). A fast bowler who struck fear into batsmen, yet you could barely hear him running up to the crease.

    I give you Michael Holding - otherwise known as "Whispering Death".

    Hand of God was actually the nickname of a goal he scored in the 86 World Cup against England. He had another awesome nickname though, Barrilete Cosmico = Cosmic Kite. I love the Scholes ones!

    Another good one I am surprised noone remembered since he played here is Rick "Nifty" Middleton!
