Washington Post baseball writer, Dave Sheinin, just made a really great power pop album. I heard sample on Bandcamp and bought it.

I am only slightly hairier than Dipper.

John Eales, former Australian Rugby Union captain, was known as Nobody - because nobody's perfect.

Dean Laidley, stonefaced former coach of the North Melbourne Football Club, was called The Bible by his players - because he was so hard to read.

Joel Corey lobbed up at the Geelong Football Club and the ruckman, Steven King, asked him what his name was. When Corey told him, King said, "Bullshit, noone has two first names - you're Smithy." And Smithy he is.
Good.
