But anyways...this is an interesting one. Where do we stand on "official" nicknames of players on jerseys? Let's define it. Here and now.
We have Alexander Semin, #28 of the Washington Capitals. But actually, we have "JIZ", #28 of the Washington Capitals.
Now it's pretty damn obvious why his nickname is Jiz(z), and we even have video confirmation from Matt Bradley. So where do people stand on this? To the Twitter of course.
SpeakoftheDevs That IS a jersey foul!! It's Jizz, with two "z"'s. RT @BanginPanger: Just saw a jersey foul, Caps #28 name? JIZSo where did that get us? Well, Caps fans call no foul, everyone else? Foul, for multiple reasons. I think we have to look at this in terms of the greats.
Space_Weed Kinda funny, but in a mainly immature way RT @BanginPanger: Just saw a jersey foul, Caps #28 name? JIZ
JeffHoppis @banginpanger but its his nickname!
hmabb It's his nickname in the locker room, according to Bradley. RT @BanginPanger: Just saw a jersey foul, Caps #28 name? JIZ
wyshynski Still not sure on official nicknames. "Great One" 99 Kings RT @BanginPanger Does Jiz being Semin's nickname make it anymore a jersey foul?
mlse @wyshynski @BanginPanger What is this? The XFL? Jersey Foul all the way.
SkinnyFishbowl @BanginPanger Important fact Semin does not equal semen. Jersey foul.
If you saw a #99 Kings jersey that said "Great One" what's your first thought? You see a #66 Pens that says "Super Mario" your initial reaction? You see a #9 Habs jersey that says "Rocket", your thoughts? A #68 Pens sweater, "Mullet" what do you think? How about a #17 Leafs jersey that says "Fabulous"?
What do I think? Sorry dude, that's a waste of $150 bucks.
Ed. Note: Fun fact; enlarge the photo, right behind the penalty boxes, guy leaning back, yeah that's a #14 "Flash" sweater. Yeah, that's Tomas Fleischmann's nickname.
