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...
Yeah, I heard him say it in plain English last night - cannon. Struck me as odd, because the first four weeks of the season he kept saying Jose has Grand Canyon power; even saying Grand Caņon
quite a few times.
