Subject: RE: BS: 'Mudcat' and other Unusual Nicknames
When I was growing up a Washington Senators baseball fan, the Cleaveland Indians had a pitcher named Jim "Mudcat" Grant who used to beat us every time. After many years of this jinx, the Senators management passed out little voodoo dolls, I believe it was, to all fans in attendance one day when he was scheduled to pitch here. I don't think it did any good. He owned us!

Hello, Blue Balloon! Glad to make your aquaintence!
