The worst sports nickname ever?

Brooks Conrad
Posted by Jonah on 27 Aug 2011 | Baseball, Funny, MLB

Atlanta Braves utility player Brooks Conrad has been given the nickname “Raw Dog” by his teammate Chipper Jones. And, just to clarify, I consider Conrad’s nickname the worst, not Jones’.

Brooks “Raw Dog” Conrad got his nickname for his gritty style of play. He wears no batting gloves to grip his bat and cushion his hands. Spit, dirt, and pine tar are all he needs. He slides hard, runs hard, and plays hard. Therefore: Raw Dog.

Unfortunately, another man with a silly nickname likes to use the term rawdog. Marshal Mathers, AKA Eminem, AKA Slim Shady calls unprotected sex “raw dog.”

Before you pity Brooks Conrad, you should know that Eminem used the term first.

Do you know any worse sports nicknames?

    Yes, Happy Dicks wins! I’ve heard of a Topeka Kansas legend that after Seamen’s High played the Topeka High Trojans there was a headline: “Trojans hold back Seamen.”
