Wrote a column recently pointing out that Blair Walsh's nickname, The Blair Walsh Project, is kinda lame. Chris Kluwe rightly called it ``Low-hanging fruit.''
Kluwe suggested Leg-olas, as a nod to Lord of the Rings. I like it.
A bunch of readers sent in other suggestions. Among them:
-Missile Toe (to be used during the holidays)
-Broadway Blair (for kicking it down Broadway)
My favorites: BW3 and, for Decembers, Missile Toe.
Thanks for playing.
I'm prepping for Vikes-Packers and will tweet during the game at @Souhanstrib, internet willing.
I'll also be on 1500espn at 2:05 Monday to break it down with Reusse and Mackey.

If they think Teddy Bridgewater is ahead of schedule, or on schedule, or doing encouraging things, why not just say so?
Joe Mauer was given a day off. And not a day off after a night game, or a day off after getting hit in the head by a pitch. He was given a day off after an off day.
One of the reasons I like covering the Lynx is that the basketball is so often fundamentally sound and beautiful to watch, in terms of ball movement and unselfishness. Didn't see much of that Sunday night in the season opener.
The Twins are right to worry that Berrios has failed to make his stuff translate in the big leagues before. But he's going to have to learn to adapt to the big leagues at some point.
The last two nights in Texas have provided a pleasant respite. Not just because the Twins won. But because they won by playing sharp baseball.
