    I have some trouble spelling this kid's name at times and its not the shortest name either. Can anyone come up with a reasonable nickname for him that's easy to spell? I'm sure with the rich imaginations of the posters on this board someone can come up with a suitable nickname?

    Example of kicker names. Sebastian Janikowski was referred to as Sea Bass.

    I have a problem with naming things until I know I can keep them.

    I like Ghost, but I think people will end up calling him "Guts."

    If he's as good as he was in college, the media will basically be calling him the kicker equivalent of Brady, with Adam V. being the new Drew.

    Not just Ghost, but THE GHOST. I already have him as the repalcement for the person who is now dead to me.

    I even retained my dogs to go after the football when I say "The Ghost" before I kick it. It use to be the name of the that other person that I used for that.:mad:

    I thought about ghost as well, it is just so easy. But it may be appropriate if he makes the team, he is just a ghost in the shadow or the Great, Superhuman Adam Viniateri! I think it is sort of a clever way to say that fans will look right thru him like he is not there, until he reaches rock star status like Adam, who made two clutch kicks back in 2001 (and is as great a kicker as we have seen in a long time).

    I like it!

    I would be thrilled if the story after our next superbowl is "The Big Three: Belichick, Brady and the Holy Ghost!"

    No, no, no.... I finally get a fellow Polock on the team, and you all want to de-Slavic his most excellent name. Phooey! :(

    We did this thread already a couple months ago. It's The Polish Ghost: He's so accurate, it's spooky.

    Stephen Gostkowski = Polish Ghost?

    Word association

    Polish -> Sausage
    Ghost -> Casper

    The friendly sausage then? Somehow that sounds wrong.

    Any other ideas?

    Super G
    STNG -> Sting
    Big G
    Stevie G
    Stone "Cold" Gostkowski
    Gold Dust
    Stewie
    Steps Up N Knocks em Down
    3Step G
    G-Money
    Golden Goose
    Grey Goose
    Goose
    Ghost

    Humm what sounds better, Goose or Ghost? I kinda like Goose.
    Anybody else? I know most of these don't make sense, just trying to brainstorm.

    Surely you already had one: Mruczkowski. Now there's a name for those who like their consonants! ;)

    Not sure why I noticed, but congrats on post 1500!

    And if the counter is off, and this is not post 1500, congrats on something else.:)

    'Goose' is already taken by fat slob former Defense Tackle of the Ravens, who now is a media personality, and covered the Eagles/Pats superbowl, with lots of predictions that the Eagles would win.

    Before that he used to slam the Pats, and Brady in particular, on some lame, short lived Sunday morning cable pre-game show full of haters.

    But then he became a 'Pats' convert, at least long enough to come on local cable channels to promote some kind of sausage treat, named after himself, that he wanted people to buy for tailgating.

    The first thing I thought of was a bite of Ghost Face Killa (the rapper)...

    "Ghost Place Kicka."

    Horrible, I know, but I control not what the mind concludes.
