What's not to like? It's a dumb silly name brought on by Ozzie's lack of normal English pronunciation. It's golden, gonna stick with it.

Makes just as much sense as that stupid Outfield song walk up, sometimes the best baseball stuff is dumb.

...except that the Outfield song is something Beckham personally requested. So, playing his favorite song is "dumb", but continuing to call him some lame nickname that he really doesn't care for is "golden"?

But, at any rate, I'm more worried about Beckham's hitting abilities than his views on an old nickname that a former manager coined.

Um...because it's a dumb silly nickname, and it was brought to light by a dumb, silly caricature of a baseball manager. But then, you do still like that poor excuse of an ex-manager. And you're going to stick with it even though you know he doesn't like it?

Would you like it if someone called you something that was "dumb and silly", said you didn't like it, but that person continued to use it anyway? Granted, you'll probably never meet Beckham, and if you did and you called him that, he'd be to classy to tell you to kiss his ass, but still...

It wasn't an "Ozzie nickname," it was just the way Ozzie pronounced Beckham. With his heavy Spanish accent, it came out sounding like bacon. Then the fans made it into a nickname.

I think Hawk's incessant attempt at using "Tanks" (plural) or "the Jakemeister" might beat that, barely.

For the first time in my life, I'm going to say it: No more Bacon.

LOL...I know. Usually, bacon makes everything better. Not so in this case!

He should like it. If he doesn't turn it around at the plate this year, he could be looking at a nickname of Beggin Strips.

Nowhere near the worst nickname in Sox history, but that ought to be its own thread!
