Yeah, I know that. I just find a little comical how "we" attach nicknames to everyone, be it a coach, player, or whoever, at the drop of a hat, but if someone actually has a nickname to begin with, it's like "How dare you! I'm the only one that deserves the right to give you one, so until then, I will address by your 'proper' name!"

F'king please.

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

You're right about the silliness. It's a disease, I tell ya.
Hypothetically, I would know him personally and would call him whatever he wants to be called.

Reality, I don't know Bill O'Brien personally and will most likely never meet the man, so whatever I call him is irrelevant.

I don't really care what other fans or whoever call him. "OB" is not bad. At least it is something real in the man's life.

That said, he's O'Brien to me.

While true, I'll probably call him by the preferred OB while he does well and that Damned Yankee when he doesn't.

I know no one on this board didn't expect him to call plays did they. I know I assumed he would do it because he has always done it.

I honestly expected Texian to call our plays. I figured OB would have her number on speeddial & call her up before every snap.

I've given out one negative rep my entire time on this board (and that was in the first week before I knew any better).

You just came dangerously close to neg rep #2!
