Bum Phillips - retired American Football coach and father of current Dallas Cowboys coach, Wade Phillips.

America will be a harvest for stupid names alright.

Eddie Rocket - Waterford senior footballer and scored the goal in their victory against Carlow yesterday.

Loads of football ones:
-Danny Invincible
-Danny Shittu
-Dexter Blackstock
-Collins John

GAA ones:
-Frank Sex (plays in Kildare somewhere)

I have heard surnames called Topless, Honeybun and Darling not belonging to sport stars but just in general which I think deserves a mention.

PS - Jugs be careful if you are posting in this thread!

I decided to browse around that Baseball website and found another stupid one in about 20 seconds. Cheif Bender

There’s an American golfer called Brian Gay. Any time his name is mentioned on TV coverage I laugh a lot. Dean Windass is another one.

Gareth Jellyman - lower league footballer in England.

I was reading an interview with the superb Jeff Stelling a while back and he said he thought of a pun about him when he was doing his research for Soccer Saturday one particular week but he only got to use it about 2 years later.

I can imagine how giddy he got when it appeared on the vidiprinter on the Saturday in question that Jellyman had received a red card. Quick as you like, Stelling chirps in with, ‘Jellyman sent off - must have thrown a wobbly!’
