Royal Tease

Sometimes you hear a name and it forms a funny picture in your mind. It is this humor that has made the "What do you call a man with no arms and no legs..." jokes popular. While perusing through the 40-man rosters of each team recently, I came a cross a handful of players whose names generate such hilarious imagery. Five men from the Kansas City Royals are depicted here, and only one from the New York Yankees.

Catcher John "10 Point" Buck may not have the most impressive rack, or stats for that matter, but he is a solid player and a loyal Royal. Brian Bannister makes his debut with the Royals this season. He's had it rough during spring training, but the team is confident that he will become a sturdy and stable pitcher. Rounding out the nouned nomenclatured pitchers is John "Hay" Bale.

Former Red Sox outfielder Coveli "Coco" Crisp also premieres with the Royals this season. The cereal inspired nickname has its origins in his childhood, and it stuck. I think it has a lot of marketing potential. If not in cereals, then certainly as a potato chip. Youngster Billy "Coleman" Butler served the Royals mostly as a designated hitter in his last two seasons, however, this year they seem to be grooming him to play more games as a first baseman.
New York Yankees
Enjoy the taste of Coke? The Yankees seem to. Rookie south paw Phil "Cherry" Coke, popped his MLB cherry in September of last year against Detroit. He's a strong pitcher, hopefully he won't fizzle out too soon.

Fun with names, FedEx style...

I can't stop repeating "loyal Royal" in my head.

john buck looks like he should be mounted on someone's wall, like what walleye did in the movie 'hot shots' with topper's father's head

I look forward to every batch of these photoshopped beauties.

I considered "mounting" his head. It probably would have been funnier if I had.

While you set up your house for your initial open house event, try to see it from the perspective of a possible purchaser. Make sure that the entire residence is clean and that it feels inviting. Turn on the majority of the lights in the home to ensure that each room looks appealing and cozy. If you can, do a little staging. This will likely include arranging some magazines and books on a end table, or having a vase of fresh flowers on the [url=http://www.handfans123.com]hand fans[/url] dinette table. A lot of real estate agents event bake some baked goods or bread to give the residence a [url=http://www.handfans123.com]custom hand fans[/url] comfortable and cozy environment.
