He's trying way too hard with this nickname. I don't care that much, but the The Bear is about 1000x better - and more organic - than The Cannon.
And whoever said that it'd be cool hearing a packed Cell chanting "Oso" was spot-on...
I agree- he kind of moves like a bear- I could hear a few people yelling "c'mon Oso" during the game last night- and you could do all kinds of marketing stuff with "El Oso" vs. "The Cannon"- which is lame and Hawk is trying way too hard to get into the mainstream-
