I'm good w/this. Every time I heard his name, my noggin would flash to Elvis(The Pelvis) crooning.."Andrighettttoooooo"

 

"In The Ghetto" was a big hit for the King. But some lazy AM stations overkilled it, back in the day.

My favorite name is Koekkoek. Just so i can say: The pronouncation for Koekkoek is coocoo.

 

I know it's a real knee slapper

Had there been a mainstream hit, saying cuckoo repetitively, it would've been traumatically-debilitating indeed. If I associate someone's handle with the lyrics of a pop song..well, can't just forgetaboutit!

 

We had a student(large English school downtown) named Ishiwaki. & she was indeed, rather bizarre. Now had she married this hockey player, & kept her maiden name? Well, you'd have Yoko Ishiwaki-Koekoek. Kinda rolls off the tongue, eh?

I imagine we'll see more of this tbh. With so many teams in a cap squeeze there will probably be a good number of guys going overseas to find work. Lot of fringe and middling guys. There's not enough money to go around with stars taking bigger and bigger pieces of the pie. 

 

On the flip side teams might be able to get sweetheart deals from guys who just wanna stick in the bigs.
