I imagine that he gets a lot of ribbing from his teammates for the nickname's origin.

If its in relation to halloween and handing out free candy, then it shouldnt be a problem. But if its in reference to his picture and looking like a guy who hands out free candy to little kids...then i wouldnt appreciate people using that line either.


But there's the dude rule about not being able to pick your nickname. It must be bittersweet-- to be embraced by the fanbase enough to be given a nickname that sticks, but one you aren't crazy about... Maybe it'll grow on him (after a couple of years). But for the time being, I wouldn't be saying it to his face.

If enough loud screams of "Free Candy!" erupt from the crowd every time he puts a big hit on someone, maybe he'll come to accept it.

All the best nicknames are disliked by their owners, its what's great about them.

I was going to say "Satan worshiper" but by far that one you wrote is now my favorite. Thank you sir.

They need to play clips from Stephen Lynch - My Name is Satan. Specifically after he scores they need to play just the part where he says "My Name is Sataaaaan...wooohooo"

I'd like to see them play "Sympathy for the Devil" after each Satan goal.

Ohmygod. I read the comments on that post (because, clearly, I hate myself) and someone seriously refers to Orpik as "Nosepik." Which might actually ursurp "Cindy Criesby" as the most pathetic attempt at an insulting nickname I've ever heard/seen.

I think a six year old could come up with better "insults" than these...

I laughed out loud (which is rare when i'm alone) at this when I read it, maybe its because its late and i'm sleep deprived, maybe its because it was extra funny, but I felt that I should mention that.

honestly, with Satan, you could just steal some metal band's lyrics and put them on a sign and it would be hilarious every time. It probably helps if the band has a logo with a pentagram, because bands like Stryper would make Satan sound kind of lame.

Thanks, I guess. I'm glad someone can get some enjoyment out of my inability to avoid reading comments at places where I know they'll make me want to slam my head repeatedly into a brick wall (youtube, espn, etc). :lol:

FYI, Brooks pic during the announcement of the starting lineup has him smiling and not looking like a free candy guy.
