The Worst Names in Sports History

The other day I saw a tweet about USC quarterback Sam Darnold regarding his family history in athletics.  Anything stand out?

If you are as immature as me, the name “Dick Hammer” made you laugh like an eight year old who just heard a fart in church.  So this got me thinking…what are some of the worst names in sports? Que the list below.

Dick Hammer

He was actually a college basketball player and US Olympic volleyball player, but his name is easily the best thing about him.

Rusty Kuntz

My personal favorite.  I don’t think I’ll ever not laugh at this name.

Dick Trickle

Not sure what’s worse: his name or the fact he does NASCAR

Dick Pole

And he was a Bust… 0 for 2.

Stubby Clapp

Stubby is clearly a nickname, but why call yourself that? You might as well just stuff yourself in the locker for the bully.

Steve Sharts

Not even a joke here, Sharts is just hilarious, sorry Steve.

Dick Butkus

If my last name was Butkus, I’d probably stick with Richard.

Dick Shiner

Dude, have somewhat of a clue.

Johnny Dickshot

Sounds more like a nickname for somebody who gets hit in the balls a lot.

Chubby Cox

Yeah, why not.

Destinee Hooker

Her parents definitely didn’t look too deep into this one when they chose the name.

Kyle Sackrider

When you have a last name like that, your only option is to give your kid a normal name like Kyle.  Smartest parents on this list so far.

Phyllis Mangina

I can hear it now: “Phyllis has a mangina, Phyllis has a mangina”
