    The first of many banners I hope and this first one made is by me(of course the art is from Vancouver Canucks logos and photos).

    Of course not everybody is going to be a fan of this banner so expect more to come.

    So I'll use this opportunity to introduce myself.

    My name's Alfon
    As you guessed I am a big sport aficionado. I mainly follow Basketball(NBA and College Basketball) and Football(NFL and College Football).
    My favorite teams are Oklahoma City Thunder and Chicago Bears.
    One of my favorite sports moment has to be Game 6 1998 NBA finals and Jordan's final shot.
    And one of my favorite athletes of all is Hakeem Olajuwon.

    I still think people underestimates LBJ's triple double in the finals, one of the great finals feats for sure.

    Anyways, Welcome Archer! feel free to start any discussion that are sports related.

    So our current topic discussion is, Best nicknames in sports? In your opinion, what are some of the best of all time?

    Cutler and Marshall will be sick but don't forget, Earl Bennett has the lowest drop rate percentage over the past 3 years. I think he will have a dynamite season as well.

    Yah Bennett was solid last year and thank god he was, because roy williams didn't do squat to help out.

    Also you got Alshon too, this receiving corps is probably the best the Bears ever had in a while.
