Just curious to hear some. Doesn't matter Men or women and how good are they?

Always have something to do with the person themselves and are not dumb made up names like the pros.
Limo Jimmy
Airport Steve (not sure why)
Dollar Dave (top bet)
John doe (makes pizzas)
Kinko (hair like art Garfunkle)
Busthead (descriptive)
Sugar Shack Johnny (place he used to hang out)
Freddie the beard (obvious)
To many to list but the funny thing, these names stick. With John Doe, few people who know him don't know it is not his name.

We have quite a few. Some are not used in the assignee's presense.

Crazy Sue

Randy the Plumber

The Bag Lady (local gal in her 50's, AKA Marsha)

Goat Licker (a free-form pronounciation of local LO's name)

Black Larry (guess there must be a "White Larry" with whom we're avoiding confusion)

Lizard (don't ask)

Fat Mike (obvious)

Hippie Dave (obvious)

The Iguana (obvious once you see him in profile)

Powder (another "don't ask")

SpiderMan (stands at close right corner pocket, puts foot on left side rail, leans downtable to shoot near foot rail, no rake)

Hotel Dave

Poker Steve
Kid Chris
Downtown Eddie Brown

Two guys, one named Thompson and the other Thomson. Referred to as "Wet Thompson" and "Dry Thomson". "Dry" was the one without the P.

I knew of this guy once they called ratface- don't really know why I think it was because his teeth. he wasnt'much of a player but the name sticks out in my mind and for the ladies I don't really know of any maybe some one out there can help.

Hippie Dave? Drives a schoolbus? Plays pretty sporty?

Plays a decent game. Often looked like he slept on a park bench. Haven't seen him for a while. Most easily-remembered trait is his tip, he plays with an assymmetrical "shovel" or "wedge" contour, using an abbreviated stroke and lots of spin. Rotates the tip every shot to get the contour against the ball.
