now I know Jason Babun didnt want a nickname but I had to give him one and ever since he started last year I given him the name "The Gator." Its southern but I liked it because he;s vicous with his tackles and crap. Oh well. What nickname would you give Babin?

Babin downplays the reports on this. At some point he ate some chicken bones before a few games and it got reported as a habit before every game. Haven't heard anything about him doing it as a Texan.

"Most rookies can't hear things and apply it on the field. He can take it straight from the meeting room onto the field and be able to execute it, which is very unusual and a tribute to him. As long as he keeps doing what he's doing, he'll be just fine, and we'll be better off for having him out there."

Babin didn't know if he would be too excited to sleep Saturday night, but he could say with all certainty that he would not be having chicken bones for his pre-game meal, a supposed superstition that has followed Babin since he was a kid.

As the story goes, Babin looked up to an older cousin and hung on his every word. The cousin once told him that he had to play mean like "grandma's dog," and when Babin asked why grandma's dog was so mean, the answer was because the dog ate chicken bones.

"That was kind of a misconstrued story from the get-go," Babin said. "It only happened when I was younger. My cousin, Kevin, whatever he said, I felt like it couldn't be wrong, so I chewed on the bones. But it wasn't some sort of superstition I had to do before every game.

"I'm not some kind of barbaric animal. I've set people straight before, but it just keeps popping up."

well, that clears that up.

btw, please don't feed your dogs chicken bones people...chicken bones splinter and can cause internal bleeding.

Bones seems like it fits him some how. Does anyone else agree?

The only thing I have against giving him some sort of vicious, hard hitting nick name is this.... the man plucks his eyebrows! I like him as a player and all... just dont see any kinnda rough and tough name sticking with a guy that into his apearance.

How about Bab Wire (barbed wire), try to run through him, go around him, go over or under him, and see what happens.

Okay, I suck!

I think because it's the offseason and it is just kind of fun to see if you can actually come up with something.

Well, I'm one of the bored ones this off season....*#@@#^*...this is going entirtely too slow. I have called him Babs since I've seen him play...I know it's lame but I don't know if I'm just too damn lazy to say the whole name but I do it to a lot of players. Who knows....let the season begin! :drool:
