FanPost

How did you choose your username?

This is a fun topic that's been wildly popular at Athletics Nation and, according to ragnarok, also at the old TBIOTF (R.I.P.).  The goal: describe why you chose your username in sufficient detail.

I chose ‘carp’ because it is an old nickname used during my baseball years.  It’s the first four letters of my last name.  My father and younger brother also go by that, the latter using the handle on his vmail message machine.

Some of you need little explanation (e.g., HolmoePhobe).  But why did the person behind the username choose that name of all possibilities?

Others are named after athletes (e.g., 33SwisherSweet).  Did 33SS choose Swisher because Swish bought him a gin & tonic at the local watering hole (or something to that effect)?

Several others have usernames that aren’t obvious (e.g., TwistNHook).  Uncovering why these usernames were chosen really drives this game and makes it fun for all.

Enjoy!
