View Full Version : What do we call Krivsky?

I've got two goals with this post:

1) Nickname history: Does anyone know the derivation of the common blog nicknames 'Jimbo' (Jim Bowden) and 'DanO' (Dan O'Brien)

2) Nickname for Krivsky: It would be nice to have a blog name for the new GM much like the pervasive "DanO". Does anyone have an idea for what we bloggers should call Krivsky? Based on different names I've seen being used on other threads and a similar post I put up on Red Reporter yesterday, I've compiled a revised list of possibilities here. Please support your favorite or, by all means, suggest a nickname that you think would be more fitting.

Wayne K
Wayne Dog
Wayne's World
Waynesky
WK
Kriv
Dub-K
K-Riv
Krivsky Business
Krivsky Creme
Krivskinator
O'Krivsky

This list is by no means exhaustive, so please chime in with your ideas! I think my personal vote is for 'Kriv'--short, easy to type, and catchy.

How about Krivy?

And, henceforth, the Reds front offices will be referred to as "Wayne Enterprises"

I'm to blame for those, mostly due to laziness...

And for Wayne I'm getting even lazier..."WK"

Do you have the entire Bob Pollard lyrical catalogue stored in your personal memory banks?

What's worse is that I recognize the lyrics and immediately begin signing along.

It makes me feel 20 again.

yeah he does.

we're going to see Bob on the 28th.

with that I'll just say that Krisvky better have some Bulldog Skin if he ever reads some of FCB's posts. ;)

Let's stay away from Krivo. It doesn't seem fitting right now since jimbo and dano were subpar. WK deserves nothing but the best so far.

Actually, Bowden's is spelled with a capital "B", as in JimBo (accent on the "Bo" as opposed to the "Jim"), short for Jim Bowden, of course. Somewhere in the translation I think it got changed to Jimbo with some folks, with the accent on "Jim".

I'll give you JimBo but I started calling O'Brien "DanO" pretty much from the get go. I just thought it was an ironic nickname for him since he is such a dork.

Anything but "Kriv" or "The Kriv." I had originally propsed Waynesky but I don't think that fits our needs.

Positive: "The Duke" (John Wayne reference, due to his rugged good looks :) and since he shoots straight from the hip)

Negative: "Waynky" (or possibly Waynker)
