Wasn't "The Gooch" the bully in "Different Stokes?"

I'm not entirely sure I dig it for Iguchi.

It also doesn't translate well into Japanese.

I actually like the nickname "Different Strokes" for Iguchi. It doesn't really need an explanation if you watch the man hit.:D:

Is it possible to come up with a nickname for a player this day in age that doesn't involve either a play on his name and/or ethnicity? It seems this is the point where creativity ends.

How about this: come up with a nickname for him based on his play on the field, which is all that matters anyway. How about something that points out his above-average situational hitting? Or his clutch hitting? Or defense? Or his ability to make adjustments and learn quickly?

Can I please get some backing on this?

I agree. Let's just call him Tadahito the Jap.

(I really hope I don't need teal for you all to know I was being sarcastic.)

Whenever I talk about him, I usually just call him Hito. I think a fitting nickname will come about sooner or later that doesn't involve a play on his name. And I know Hawk agrees with me. :cool:

For those of you unfamiliar with the world of trash television and the show Jackass, I have heard on more than one occasion Johnny Knoxville refer to the area between your goods and your behind as "the gooch." Do we really want to nickname our only .300 hitter after such a lovely spot on the human body?

yes, my mind is definitely in the gutter, but everytime I hear "Gooch" I think of that one Jackass episode. Sorry guys. I tried keeping this as clean as possible

I guess when you've been kicked in the nuts, bitten by animals, and hit on the noggin the number of times he has, you're at liberty to make up words!

I love "The Gooch" as a nickname. Whoever had that sign tonight was a genius. My buddy and I were dying of laughter at that. Great reference too. The Gooch is here to stay.

Ah so it's from Jackass, wondering why i'd never heard of it. Frickin jackass generation. :D: I also prefer plain Gooch rather than "The Gooch".
