Who Has The Best Chicago Sports Nickname Ever?

Over the course of this pandemic, we've found ourselves "drafting" things on both Red Line Radio and Dog Walk. Since sports are scarce right now, we've found it's been the best way to engage with out listeners, and this week we broke down the all time best Nicknames of Chicago sports figures.

We laughed, we cried, we loved and we reminisced. It's crazy how many good nicknames have graced Chicago over the years, but first:

So who made the cut?

The Layups: 

"Air Jordan", Michael Jordan: 

"The Big Hurt", Frank Thomas:

"Sweetness", Walter Payton 

If anyone from Chicago is drafting sports nicknames, these three are more than likely layups, but once you do a little digging you realize there are a LOT of awesome nicknames that Chicago sports figures have had over the years. Mongo Steve McMichael, Iron Mike Ditka, The Worm Dennis Rodman and more.  

Oh, and in case you missed it, Garpax has officially been #cancelled. See! Not everything in 2020 is bad. At the very least, Chicago has that going for us. Out with those bums, in with someone new. We all agreed that change was necessary, even if we had NO IDEA what was behind door #2. 

But ya know who does know all about Arturas Karnisovas?  Nick Kosmider, who covers the Denver Nuggets for The Athletic. He breaks down the good/the bad/ and the ugly about our new leader and what Bulls fans can and cannot expect out of the regime. If you don't know anything about him, don't worry about it. Nick has you covered.

Yet another all gas, no breaks show. HIT IT!
