View Full Version : Joe "The Show"

Joe Crede needs a nickname. He's developing into the type of player that someday we will tell our grandchildren about, like my Dad told me about Brooks Robinson. Going back to last post season, Joe Crede has looked like a man on a mission and he's quickly becoming one of the real greats in this league.

Far be it from me to deprive Hawk Harrelson, the master of all nicknames, the opportunity to attach one to Joe, but it seems as though every night Joe puts on a show and he does it without being a show-off. He plays hard every night and is becoming a fan favorite and a favorite on the sports highlight shows.


Secondly, I think that the way he plays the game is an inspiration to all the youngsters who are witnessing his stellar defensive prowess and his vastly improved offensive surge. He is really showing us all how itís done, and doing it with class.


Also, as we all know, Joe Crede is a native of the great state of Missouri, which is known as the Show-Me State. I am not sure I understood that moniker until Joe started showing me what heís capable of.

Finally, like any great show, this one is known for finishing in dramatic fashion. What is a show without a grand finale?

It's for those reasons that I think the perfect nickname for Joe Crede is "The Show". What do you think?


Now let's sit back, relax, strap it down and enjoy The Show.

I think Joe "I'll make your parents cry of your failure to excel anywhere near to my level of greatness" Crede is worth considering....

Not too lengthy, is it?

In a thread a little while ago I thought we should bring back Olde Tyme nicknames like they had in the '20s.
I suggested Joe "Pants" Crede.
I think yours is better. You should send it to the Hawk during the game tonight.

I've sent it to him and then I realized that the game is on "the U" tonight so i won't get the Chicago feed here in Meeechigan. Let me know if he mentions it.

Thanks.

(mods, can you please move this to the Clubhouse? I posted this in the parking lot like a noob.)

I tend, in a 'half teal' kinda way, to call him 'Joltin' Joe Crede...

Now, I know he ain't no DiMaggio, but he sure seems to come through for us in the clutch, and his D ain't bad, either.

Jim "****ing" Thome.

Props for your use of the most popular example of tmesis in the English language, but surely only non-Sox fans should refer to him thus?

Among us, shouldn't No. 25 be known by something more affectionate and reverential, such as Jim 'Thomer' Thome?

OK, I admit it - I only bothered to post this because it gave me an excuse to use one of my favourite words* - tmesis. So sue me!
Why do I like it?
What other word in the English language starts with the letters "tm", huh?
Answer: NONE!

* Other favourite words of mine include 'plinth', elbow', and 'pert'.

Anyway, my suggestion said with gusto is an endearing nickname, in a he's a badass kind of way. And yes, fans of other teams could use it too but in a much different tone.

05-11-2006, 02:04 AM
How about LTP? :D:

Or of course, Bazooka Joe. Both of those seem to be available at the moment.

I vote for greedy because it's the way he approaches every aspect of the game recently. He seems to take it personally if a baseball gets fielded by anyone else on the left side of the field and he's definitely been greedy at the plate recently, taking absolutely everything that comes his way.

Oh and of course next Winter we are going to see just how greedy he is when his contract comes up for arbitration...

I think we leave all nicknames to Hawk. No teal, I am dead serious.

We got the Big Hurt, Black Jack, El Caballo, One Dog, etc from him...and if you noticed, those names kind of stuck nationally ( I KNOW I've heard C Lee called El Caballo on FSN and ESPN). Let's leave the nicknames to him.

I think Jim ****ing Thome qualifies too, though it's probably not the most textboox example. The name Jim Thome is two words, but it's one name so it's "kinda" one word.

I call Crede "The Spider." - or "the Spyder".

He's like a spider over there at 3rd base- tall and spindley and quick, snagging everything in his way.

:gulp:

During tonight's broadcast, DJ referred to Crede as "Joe Joe, the late-inning hero" a couple times.

This reminds me of Jo-Jo the dog faced boy..........absolutely not.

We have begun calling him 'Credo' when he is up to bat. Last year when my 9 year old was learning all the players and had finally begun taking an interest in the Sox, (he is a slow learner, but catching up quickly) we were quizzing him. When I asked who the third baseman was, he stopped, puzzled for a bit, and then spit out "Oh yeah, Credo". When we picked ourselves up off the floor from laughing, it stuck. Every time he comes to bat, we always sat "Credo!" Makes Sean smile, and makes us laugh. Yes we are simple.

:supernana:

Spider doesn't work, everyone knows JD is Spyderman!!

I usually refer to him as "Captain Clutch", or just "Cap'n" for short. In ALCS Game 2, just after he hit the game winning double, there was a shot of someone in the stands with a sign saying "Captain Clutch". If fit so well, I decided to keep it.

Two ideas:

1. My nickname system...First two letters of the first name followed by the first two letters of the last name. Alter the pronunciations as necessary.

Joe Crede

JO CR

Alternative pronunciation: The Joker. Joe "The Joker" Crede

2. He's from Missouri (Postal code: MO)

Real simple MO-JOE

I think that both are solid, especially the second one. Many uses and meanings to it.

...how about "Show-Me" Joe Crede?

Joe could develop his own cult with Carl, and then he could just be "Jurassic Joe." That would make me very worried, of course...

For English literature buffs, how about Joe "the Venerable" Crede?

After appearing on a certain cereal box, Joe "I Get the Eaties for My Wheaties" Crede.

Okay, I was serious about the first one. :rolleyes:

I've called him Clutch since last season. Especially how he's come through big this season, I'd say that works for me.

Nicknames are fine and all, I just can't stand when the marketing guys get a hold of them. Its all right for fans to refer to them by nicknames, I just can't stand when they start the T-shirt/bumper sticker/Dance Remix crap. Sure, some nicknames will be with us forever (Pudge for example for the Sox, or Sweetness for the late, great Walter Payton) but I don't think any nickname currently being used will be "iconic" like those.
