    How about Ed “Pop Bottles” Bourdase, Fred “The Moose” Lening and George “Peanut” or “Sliver” Howard? Or Ray “The Photographer” Bluth? Dick Weber called him that on a Championship Bowling match. The way he peered over the ball, he looked like he was taking a picture.

      More good nicknames. But those guys are from the Great Team Era or the very early PBA. I don’t recall Anthony or Roth or Holman—or many guys from their era or later—having well-reported nicknames.
