The photo set starts off with the BIGGEST A-HOLE in professional sports. I puked at the site of that jerk-off called T.O. and couldnt view the rest of the pics.

Ah, I love it when people choose ignorance. Also, not. It means you missed, among other things, this beautiful story of hero-worship.

"Because there are no fours." -- NBA long-range gunner Antoine Walker when asked why he shoots so many threes Nice, I hadn't seen this one before.

T.O. "naughty" ? That's not a strong enough word. I'm ashamed to have the same last name as that....

"Therapy can be a good thing; it can be therapeutic". - A-Rod Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist ought to have his head examined.

Chico, I have to say that one was my favorite. Not so much for the generosity exhibited by Smyth, but more for the sick, twisted images in my head that one conjured up. Maybe I need some therapeutic therapy as well.

Terry Bradshaw nice? Somebody paid SI a big chunk of change for that one. The Vikings' party boat looks pretty small for all that hoopla. Please stop calling so many athletes by first initial/first syllable of last name. 2004 is calling,they want their nicknames back!

It reminds me of, when was it, the mid-late '90s when every other business was called Planet Something. Naming trends like that become appallingly dated, but where you can always change the sign in front of your business, it's harder to shake a nickname.

Players known by nicknames, first names, initials etc, usually did something special to garner such instant recognition. Names like The Mick, Reggie, A-Rod, T O, Yaz, The Babe, Killer and many more have been used forever. Sorry you don't like it, billysaysshit. Hope it doesn't ruin your whole day.

Sorry you don't like it, billysaysshit. Hope it doesn't ruin your whole day. Hey, drevl, it wasn't some kind of call for mass castration, okay? Breathe deeply, in, out, in, out.

Some shithead tells me to stop calling a player by his very famous nickname, I'll tell him to go fuck hisself. However, being this is an internet site I chose to simply modify his SpoFi nickname instead. See what a nice thoughtful guy I am.

drevl, you twisted little fuck (just calling it as I see it), I was referring to Tony Stewart as TStew and not deriding all nicknames or even all nicknames of that particular form--you're right that ARod should always be ARod. Learn to read.

Calling someone shithead? For that? That musta been some volumentric amount of piss that someone deposited in your Cheerios this morning, drevl.

billsaythis, I've been called twisted and I've been called a fuck - but never little. Also, your comment about first initial/first syllable came just two comments after my reference using "A-Rod". I read your words, not your mind. TStew is a poor choice of a nickname. I hope it don't stick. He deserves a tougher name. lbb, I wouldn't eat my cheerios any other way. Thanks for your concern.

drevl, there's a first time for everything--now go and have another bowl of those Pissios!
