We are trying to find a suitable nickname for Ed "eg8r" Newman.

Let me tell you a little about our Florida boy who now lives in Texas:

He's a "Big" fella.
He's a picky eater.
He has a "Leno-like" facial feature.
He drives a Dodge.
He plays with a Meucci.
His case is an old Porper.
I don't think he owns a pair of pants.
He has reddish hair.
He doesn't drink (or at least I have never seen him drink)

From that little bit of info, we need to give the boy a name. "Miami" was suggested by OPC but I'm sorry, until he abandons that Dodge Neon for a Ferrari, that isn't clickin'.

I like "Skeeter" but he abhors that one (hey...I thought naming him after Florida's State Bird would flatter him.)

Regards,

Ken

How's about Ed " <font color="red">Big Red</font color>" Newman

He will certainly not like the Nebraska Cornhuskers connection.

I'll see him later and run that one past him. After I get all of the CCB'er suggestions, I will form the post into a poll for voting, then, he will have a nickname "chosen by the people."

Regards,

Ken

Since he is a new man, the only appropriate nickname is:

Ed "Born Again" Newman

Nope don't like the Nebraska connotations. I am originally from Miami so I am a Hurricane. We hate cornhuskers, lol whatever that is.
also, rackmup is misleading people into thinking I have red hair. That my friend is a negative.

Some things are true, I will argue the non facts:[ QUOTE ]
I don't think he owns a pair of pants.
He has reddish hair.
He doesn't drink (or at least I have never seen him drink)<hr /></blockquote>First, I wore pants last night. I generally do not like to though, I like to show off those sexy legs. rofl
Second, I have brownish, blonde hair with a red tint (I sound like a girl picking out a dye for my hair).
Third, Sure I drink..I love milk!!!!! oops, if you are talking about alcholic beverages, I tend to stay away. I had a tough time in college the first couple years and the 50 cent pitcher night at our old pool hall did not help...lol, man, I miss the good ole days. My wife has helped correct those errant ways.

eg8r &lt;~~~that sounds like a great nick to me

I know he'll hate this one, but hey, aren't nicknames supposed to 'cut' (nick-names)?

Call him "Special"

They may have changed the color code... I found this in the FAQ:

&lt;color:red&gt; text &lt;/color&gt; = Makes the given text red.
&lt;color:#00FF00&gt; text &lt;/color&gt; = Makes the given text green.

(replace the &lt; and &gt; with [ and ])

Hope that works for you. <font color="red">It seems to work for me!</font color> /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Okay...maybe it's not red, but it isn't brown. It's sort of dark pink under the right light.

Greetings all,
The nickname "Miami" is already taken. The gentleman is originally from Spain, he emigrated to Florida in the late 50's, relocated to New Jersey in 65'and currently resides in a suburb outside Detroit. He is in his late 70's now and was known in his prime as one of the best one-hand one pocket players. He still hustles and is a very deceptive player. A real old school hustler.
Just out of curiosity, does anyone else know of who I speak?

Yours,
