I first saw this the other day on EDSBS, but the SI article below contains a picture and an interview. God's Power Offor is a defensive end out of Miami-Dade and has an apostrophe in his first name. I'm pretty sure that's unbeatable...
Semi- OT: God's Power Offor...Best Name Ever?
Wave Ryder. Now that's a cool name for a safety.
It's awesome that he lives in Hawaii and surfs. Of course he does.
And I like that he has a brother named Blaze. I'm naming all of my kids after American Gladiators.
That whole SI article was a most enjoyable diversion from work. Thank you.
God's Power Offer, while completely ridiculous/fantastic, will never top Barkevious Mingo in my book.
This has been discussed before. I'm just going to re-post my opinion on this:
I'm pretty sure that [ed. the name] God's Power Offer can't be beat. Not only is there an apostrophe in there but it's three actual words and refers to an omnipotent being. I think the only way to beat that is with a name that's funny/fun to say. On the awesomeness scale* God's Power Offer is very high.
*The awesomeness scale is generally agreed to have been created in the Garden of Eden when Adam deemed Eve to be more awesome then the snake (inspiring its later rebellion) or the tiger but less awesome than the platypus. Most scholars now accept that the lowest rating of the awesomeness scale is "Brian Collins" (awesomeness exemplified here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehhCvk03tNI) while the highest rating is generally deemed the "Tom Brady". Some people disagree and say that after his last Superbowl loss Brady has shown that he's not made of awesomeness which is what the definition of the top rating of the awesomeness scale. They claim that the top rating should actually be called "The Beatles" since they're more popular than Jesus (in music popularity=awesomeness) and Jesus was the top spot holder until Brady. The debate rages on.
Yeah, I mentioned this yesterday also but thought it was worthy of it's own post...especially after seeing the SI Article...
former Wings training camp invitee Robin Big Snake (who just signed with Muskegon).
And there used to be a player for TCU that had the last name "Godbolt" which was pretty fierce.
Likely descended from Increase Mather.
Also different sport, but Grlenntys Chief Kickingstallionsims, Jr. still is my favorite, though Barkevious Mingo is pretty awesome.
God's Power Offor is damn near unbeatable.
I. M. Hipp may not be the greatest, but it was a classic name matching the era in which he played.
Frankly it's just the other side of silly if you ask me. Why not just go with Greatest Dude Ever Smith and be done with it? I can throw all kinds of punctuation in there if need be. Semicolons and everything.
The article says "For instance, they could learn class of 2008 linebacker Yourhighness Morgan (Florida Atlantic) has a younger brother named Handsome."
The picture underneath my name (to the left) is of me posing in front of Dantonio, who always has seats next to mine at the Breslin, talking to a certain Florida Atlantic recruit named Yourhigness Morgan.
Sounds like a DVD collection of inspirational sermons from Joel Osteen or Jack Van Impe.
No kidding. I'm sure every team wants to have God's Power on their side.
Best ever? I don't know . . . I like this one a lot from a couple of years ago:
like Iris Macadangdang and Charlie Weis.
But if true, there has not been a better name since World B. Free.
For college football, don't forget Elvis Peacock or Sonny Sixkiller. For college hoops: God Shammgod, Scientific Mapp and Baskerville Holmes. Overall, Johnny Dickshot of the Pittsburgh Pirates is an all-time classic.
It's less funny when it's something intentional. If it's a random coincidence like Lucious Pusey, then it's funny.
Automatic name of the year winner.
Relax. Winner is here
Wonderfully terrific name
