    Gostkowski: The Polish Ghost. He's so accurate it's "spooky."

    Gramatica: If he does well -- Automatica. If he doesn't -- Problematica.

    Gramatica: The Greek rat, Piece of Crapatica, Rat with curly hair

    my old college roomate in 2003 who knew nothing about football would watch it with me from time to time. Back then monday night football had certain players showcase certain personal skills every week. One week the Gramatica brothers sang this stupid spanish song and it was putrid. He called them "the rats with curly hair". Ever since then, i think of rats with curly hair when i hear of the gramaticas.

    I fear that Grammatica loses this one.

    So we'll go with "Ghost" For Gostkowski.

    And I, for one, will be calling Grammatica Lemon-Ade.

    Don't cry for me Argentina,

    Gostkowski: Why would you want to change such a beautiful and powerful sounding proud Polish name? :D Gostkowski it is.

    Gramatica: Unfotunately, if he does well, "Spastica" since he'll be celebrating every point in his 'unique' style. If he doesn't do well, see Gostkowski.

    If he can make game winning kicks its gotta be "Guts" Gostkowski for me.

    Whether Martin makes one or not it's Martin "dramatica" Gramatica.

    Is the first syllable pronounced like 'Ghost' or like 'Gosst'? [I've never actually heard anyone say his name. . . .]

    Gosst, I believe.

    But in conversation it would be weird since to make it ryhme with his name it would be Farteen Marteen.

    swear I read somewhere the "s" is silent and that he was known in college as "gotty"...could be wrong though as I've heard every single boston sports reporter pronounce the "s" -- they can't possibly be wrong;)

    I like the "Ghost" nick names.

    However, if Gostkowski becomes the next Sisson, the name should be...

    "OW-ski"!

    :D

    If the "s" really is silent, "Gotti" is pretty much as intimidating nickname a kicker is ever going to get.

    I like Goz, it's fast and recognizable, for the Memphis kid and Argie for Gramatica.

    The "s" is not silent. It's pronounced "Gosst" and his nickname in college was Gotti.
