Later I stumbled across a second tragic name. He was a Center drafted by the Redskins in the 1953 Draft. Though he never played for them and his name is really a nickname it is still hilarious. The player’s name was Buzz Nutter. No, I am not joking. The Redskins drafted a player whose name reminds you of shaved male genitalia. I couldn’t breathe when I first saw the name. Surely this name really was the worst in NFL History.
No, it wasn’t. If you have food or drinks in your mouth, you should probably finish swallowing before you spit them all over your monitor.
In 1964 the Redskins drafted a QB in the 7th round. A QB whose very name is literally the epitome of tragic. To make a joke about our QB they have to change a letter in his name. No such juvenile tactic is required for the name of one of their QBs. You see, in 1964 the Redskins drafted a QB named Dick Shiner.
No, I am not joking. Apparently neither were his parents when they gave him that name. You see, not only does he possess the most tragic name of all time, he is a Junior. It was also his Dad’s name. He went to school at Maryland. They can’t even pawn him off on another state.
So the next time a Redskins fan wants to tell you about your QB, Tony Homo; tell them about how one of their QBs had a name right out of a homophobic nightmare. Maybe that’s why those guys wear dresses. I really love irony.
Hey, I told you their smack talk on these subjects was weak because it showed they don’t know squat about their own team.
“And now you know…….the rest of the story, Paul Harvey……good day.”
