Sometimes it's difficult being as wise and good looking as we are, but me and ObsiWan manage. Being smarter than all the half baked young folks on this board amuses us.

Another reason why I can't stand the 610 morning guys. They couldn't wait to start running with the nickname.

Lopez even called him by it...."thanks Obie." He must think they're drinking buddies already.

LOL - I am sure he lays awake at night contemplating what he can do to earn the right to his existing nickname.

Lol. I'm not saying he shouldn't have that nickname. I'm just saying I won't be calling him that just yet.

We're too quick to nickname-ify everything in this world. Drives me bananas. O'Brien is his name, so I'll call him O'Brien.

Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

I was never a fan of "Kubes". It's silly to me.

But, to each his own, I guess. Count me in the camp of "O'Brien", regardless of what the players, fans, and/or media wants to call him. I do not find it to be that much more work to type out his name.

Never liked the name Kubes, never called him that. Hated it.

Ironically, I always thought "Kubiak" would be a cool name for a dog. Thought about getting a second dog several years ago, and the name Kubiak was on the list of names. That was back when I liked the guy. Lol.

Let me ask you a hypothetical. Say you're at work, and they just hired a new employee that will be working with you everyday. You're introduced. His name is Bill O'Brien. Now, common courtesy will eventually lead you to say to him, "do you go by Bill, or how do you prefer to be called?" and if his response is "Most people call me OB", would you continue to call him 'Bill' or 'O'Brien'?

Is that a strawman? I don't think so.

You're right about the silliness. It's a disease, I tell ya.

Eh - Regardless of how things go, by the time Coach O'Brien's tenure with the Texans comes to an end (hopefully many, many years from now) he will have been called lots of things he would prefer not to be called.
