    IIRC, the famous columnist Herb Caen used to call these namephreaks.

    There was a guy playing NCAA tennis and some pro tennis whose name is Shelby Cannon. And yeah, he had a big serve.

    Jajajajaaaaaajaaa, yeah, you got me, man.
    That was just for you and Guazzelli.

    Kind of funny, I use ''boluda'' all the time now...casually working it into a conversation whenever I can. I even say it in Italian like, "Si, si, che boludo, eh?" or "skipped lunch and had two too many, so she was walking around the party like a total boluda."

    Oh, and back to the topic of this thread: there used to be a French player named Rene Lacoste. And another named Fred Perry. Nice tennis coincidences there, huh?

    Kidding again.

    Claudio Pistolesi.
    There was a kid in junior with the last name Tankar (we called him wanker or wank). If I were him, I'd go out of my way to always give my best effort, win or lose.
