    What R UR favorite all-time football players' nickname?
    They can be from anytime throughout the history of football to anybody in the present.

    One of my All-Time favorites is Rocket Ismail because people would use "Rocket" like it was his real name since it almost sounds like his real name, Raghib, and the nickname did fit his "blazing, unmatched speed" on the field.

    Rod Smart explained the origin of the grammatically unsound phrase in a January 30, 2004 article with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel as, "Basically, my brother's my opponent. After I win, he's gonna hate me. It is what it is. It's a saying I was saying when I'd feel something wasn't going my way. For example, (when) I was on the squad in Vegas and coach was putting other guys in, (i)f I felt I'm better than them, you know, hey, 'he hate me.' See what I'm saying? Give me a chance. That's all I ask. It came from the heart. Within. The way I felt."

    That's definitely one of the best...

    Another good one...Christian "The Nigerian Nightmare" Okoye
