Top sports nicknames

It would be hard to get a more flattering nickname than “Honest Abe” in reference to our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. Consid-ering today’s political climate, a politician will likely never hold that nickname again.Our 10th president, John Tyler, had a nickname that was far less complimentary. He was called “His Accidency” because Tyler was elevated to the presidency after the death of his predecessor, William Henry Harrison.Since this is a sports column, I should dodge the doldrums of democracy and talk about something a little more chipper – sports nicknames.
