With mine, my dad’s college’s sports teams are called the Bobcats. The number was originally supposed to be “2005” but I felt “205” would have been better.

What’s yours?

Well in one of my NHL video games there’s a custom character named Esoteric Inc and one named Yeezus Robins, and both of their numbers are 69 and 99. So I combined them into EsoYeezus69.

When I started going to the gym I only trained my legs 7 days a week, so my friends nicknamed me SevenLeg.

It's pretty simple for me too as I only put together my favorites in sports and music. I'm a big fan of the Rolling Stones and an even bigger fan of the Boston Bruins for over 50 years. Stones lead by five years though. Bostones. Nice to hear the stories wink

As fan who watched started to watch hockey in 1959, Glenn Hall was a legend indeed, so "iconic" seems a very appropriate.

For my username its "Dzinger" (could also be Zinger, but Dzinger seemed better and more unique) which is the nickname for Ryan Dzingel, my favorite player that I've followed for his whole career. And then his number from when he played for the Canes, my favorite team (18).

I used to be BurgerBoss here for a long while, because I was working in a local burger joint when I started here. My prof pic was one of the burgers I sold many, many times lol. Also I ate too much of burgers at that time. I love burgers.

When I decided to quit that job, I wasn't feeling the burger tag anymore so I dropped it and became just a boss lol. I haven't figured out which kind of boss I'm going to be next.

Long ago in a distant land, I, Aku, the shape-shifting Master of Darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil!

But a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forth to oppose me.

Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time, and flung him into the future, where my evil is law!

Now the fool seeks to return to the past, and undo the future that is Aku!

And thats how I got my name wink

Mokum (which is the Yiddish word for safe haven) is a local nickname for Amsterdam. I used to live there, and hope to again someday soon-ish because I love the place deeply and dearly.

Hopefully, nobody has stolen my bike while I've been away.


Quoting: SevenLeg
When I started going to the gym I only trained my legs 7 days a week, so my friends nicknamed me SevenLeg.


I just laughed so hard at this, I woke up the lady. Thanks for getting me in trouble! tears of joy

At the peak of the Peter Chiarelli era in Edmonton I sent a friend a very deep-fried meme of the Chiarelli-shrug (I think it was after the Manning trade) with the caption Beter Chiarelli, but with the red, boxed B-button emoji as a means to express my discontent with the continued stupidity of the Oilers regime.

It's actually not a play-on of "better", which many to this day continue to mistake it as. Hopefully one of these next forum updates allow me to edit my namesake to capture a better meaning.

My nickname back in grade 5 was Gmoney(my last name starts with a G and ended up getting loads of the class currency so my teacher gave me this nickname) but when entering it into the name thing when signing up I did Gmonwy by accident and don't feel like changing it for 1 letter difference
