Blair Walsh nicknames

Posted by: Jim Souhan under Packers, Vikings management, Vikings offense, Chris Kluwe Updated: December 30, 2012 - 2:17 PM

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: 

-BW3.

-Walshing Machine

-Missile Toe (to be used during the holidays)

-Broadway Blair (for kicking it down Broadway)

-Walmatic

-MegaLeg

-Legalopolis

-LegUp

-Legalot

-Herculeg

-Das Boot

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.
