Say My Name, Say My Name, Say My Name

Ok now I will have that Beyonce song in my head all morning. I was talking to Mr. ESPN last night and said, hey I gave props to your Phillies on the blog yesterday - you want to see it? I pull it up and he looks at it and criticizes it. First he says it is copyright infringement with the logo, then complains that I may jinx his team by posting about them and finally says "can't you think of a better name for me on the blog?" Before I started the blog I asked him for suggestions for the blog title and our "character" names. Did he have any suggestions or want to be bothered with it at that time? Nope! Last night when he complained about being called Mr. ESPN, I asked him if he had suggestions for a different name and of course he didn't. Sounds like most politicians these days, complain about the current state of affairs (i.e. health care, etc.) and have no valid solution to put forth! I thought this name was perfect for him since he is so obsessed with sports and that channel (or one of it versions, i.e. ESPN2, ESPN News, etc.) is on at our house more than any other channel. I won't even go into how he brought a second tv into the family room last weekend so we could watch 2 games at one time (no that wasn't the first time he has done that).

So ladies I will send it out there to you ... any suggestions on a blog name for him? His real name is Dennis (don't ask why I don't just use our real names - I just thought it would be fun to go by something a little different), growing up his family called him Dennie (I hate this name with a passion sounds like a pansy), in college they called him Big D (I hate this for him too because Big D is Dallas not my husband) and most of the time I just call him D. I am sure he will be thrilled that I am asking other women for their opinion on his blog name, but that's what you get when you complain.

How about sweet love? oops - did I say too much?!? ;-)

How about Negative Nancy? It goes well with Chatty Cathy. :) I'm kidding. Personally I think Mr. ESPN is fitting for him, and it's cute when you refer to the "ESPN household." No one I know knows as much about sports as the two of you - you're like walking sports encyclopedias. You could call him your taste tester since he's the happy recipient of all your baked goods.

Big D makes me think of something other than Dallas, ya know what I'm saying?

I like ESPN.

He sounds so like Adam. While naming babies, he never liked anything I suggested EVER, but never came up with anything on his own.

ESPN is my vote, too. Sorry, Dennis. It's been Mr. ESPN from the beginning and I'm not good with change. :)

love the Mr. ESPN! and as for the 2 TVs? that's the way in our house.
Brad's dream is a basement with a projector and maybe 2 other tvs rockin at the same time!

I vote for no change! Why doesn't he think Mr. ESPN is not perfect? How about something to do with beer---oh wait, that's my husband! How about that Yuegling beer or whatever that's called?! Yuegling sounds good! Ha!

How about Mr. Grumpypants? That might be too long to type, though.
Laughing about the 2 TVs in one room! Unheard of!

just like a man-haha!! Mr ESPN is better than JackAss, which is what I would call M most of the time! And the 2 TV's...been there!!

I love the name Mr. ESPN. It is fitting and there's nothing wrong with it.
I knew you could come around to being a baseball fan (there is more to sports than football and basketball)! Too bad our Rockies lost, but that's the only way your Phillies could move on. . . ;-)
