Nickname Etiquette

So I was with yer dog first an avid poster on Veb at the Stros Cubbies paint drying 13 inning drama at minutemaid park. It was a fun as we took my daughter to her first(rememberable game 9 months first one) game and got autographs. It was Roy Oswalt bobblehead doll day, which on his it says Roy Oswalt "The wizzard". Yer dog and I have discussed that Oswalt has had this nickname by houstoninas for a bit. Is it maybe that Ozzies was the wizzard of Oz as a full nickname however often shortened to the wizard?

One problem. The nickname is taken. As a Card fan I'm angry, but as we discussed more as a fan it seems a rule has been broken? When given nicknames there are usually no repeats..here are some off the head nicknames that are famous, and stand for one person.

-  The Admiral

- The Great Bambino

- El Hombre

- The Glove

- Sweetness

- Human Highlight reel

- "the man"

 

Now keep in mind I'm not naive I know nicknames like "gibby" can apply more than once (both to guys named gibson though) My point is more the unique ones, and keep it to sports. If I'm missing famous repeats let me know.
