    from HT.com's live chat with Owen Daniels:

    barrett - austin, TX, US: Owen, we over at texanstalk.com have given you the nickname "OPEN" Daniels. What do you think? Seems pretty appropriate I think!

    Owen Daniels: I like it a lot. Whoever thought of that is a genius, and it works because it's true. Thanks.


    There you have it. It's official. Put O.D. to rest. OPEN Daniels is our starting TE.

    Nobody is going to give me credit for it but I came up with that. There's a thread somewhere about nicknames and I was talking about how some of our guys are starting to get nicknames and I came up with Open Daniels. Darn it where's my copyright when I need it.

    Eh, I'll stick with OD. Short, sweet and easy to bark while in a drunken stupor.

    If I were to choose a nickname for OD, it'd be "The Weatherman"

    I just did a pretty big search...couldn't find an old phrase of "open daniels" for you. I'll look more later, and over at the dotcom.

    or at least a "blue thingy" :) Who cares in the end. I'm just please to see that the man himself is digging it!

    God we're not even to the dry time yet!

    Barrett also came up with the nickname for my three kids:

    Benjamin... he came up with "Ben"
    Samuel... he came up with "Sam"
    Kathryn... he came up with "Kate"


    The man is a genius! By the way, he has been annoyingly persistant screaming Open Daniels for the past 2 seasons. He was calling OD "Open Daniels" back when I was calling Demarcus Faggins "The Man!"

    When you quote someone beside their name is a blue thing, if you click on it it will take you directly to the page of the quote. In this post, in the quote there is an arrow beside your name if you click on it you will be taken to your post.

    Sorry, we have a strict five year rule on coinage rights of nicknames.

    I'd like to know who came up with that spelling of Kathryn? I'm going to start calling you Dayle or Jaques. Hmmmm?
