    I was listening to sports radio in Atlanta and the question was to name some player's nicknames that you don't like.

    One guy with a deep southern accent says "I can't stand Jake Plummer's nickname.."the snake" because he stole it."

    The host of the show says "yeah, I can see that as being an insult to Kenny Stabler."

    The southerner replies "screw Ken Stabler, I'm talking about JAKE ROBERTS."

    Almost ran off the road laughing so hard when I heard that.

    I don't doubt you're right, I just remember DM calling Alworth Bambi on MNF and thought it was one of Merideth's famous nicknames that he seemed to hang on people right and left.

    I remember Merideth hanging "Lil' Puddin'" on Walt Garrison! I still miss his wit on MNF.
