In Jr. High "Wes" was not the name of the kid who beat you up and took your lunch money once a week.. "Wes" was the name of the kid who made sure you were never beat up as long as he got half your lunch money every day. "Julian" was the name of the kid you beat up to get HIS lunch money. There is a precedent for "cannonball." (Julian "Cannonball" Adderly) Unfortunately, "Cannonball" doesn't fit. If he was a Full Back or something... Also it must be able to replace his name. Like Larry Bird or Magic Johnson. Excuse me, Lorenzo and Ervin. As opposed to Dick "Night Train" Lane. "Dick" still gets used. It has to be one word. "Mini-Wes," is, despite the hyphen, sounded as two words. (Besides, he is taller than the guy he's a "mini" of.) I suggest "The Calendar." Yes, it is two words. An article registers in the mind as much the word "said." Besides, you know Berman will call him Julian Calendar Edelman if we don't do it first. Oh, "The" not "A." If Paul Pierce had to play against "'a' truth" do you think he'd run by him? The definite article is waaaaay cooler than the indefinite article. Which is cooler a bone head or The Bone Head? If you knew nothing but theses names, who would you bet on in "The Bonecrusher vs. A Bonecrusher"? What name would you suggest?
