    Re: What's In A Nickname: Old Topic And Still No Consensus



    The Conqueror Worm Defense

    Lo! 'tis a gala night
    Within the lonesome latter years!
    An angel throng, bewinged, bedight
    In veils, and drowned in tears,
    Sit in a theatre, to see
    A play of hopes and fears,
    While the orchestra breathes fitfully
    The music of the spheres.
    Mimes, in the form of God on high,
    Mutter and mumble low,
    And hither and thither fly-
    Mere puppets they, who come and go
    At bidding of vast formless things
    That shift the scenery to and fro,
    Flapping from out their Condor wings
    Invisible Woe!

    That motley drama- oh, be sure
    It shall not be forgot!
    With its Phantom chased for evermore,
    By a crowd that seize it not,
    Through a circle that ever returneth in
    To the self-same spot,
    And much of Madness, and more of Sin,
    And Horror the soul of the plot.

    But see, amid the mimic rout
    A crawling shape intrude!
    A blood-red thing that writhes from out
    The scenic solitude!
    It writhes!- it writhes!- with mortal pangs
    The mimes become its food,
    And seraphs sob at vermin fangs
    In human gore imbued.

    Out- out are the lights- out all!
    And, over each quivering form,
    The curtain, a funeral pall,
    Comes down with the rush of a storm,
    While the angels, all pallid and wan,
    Uprising, unveiling, affirm
    That the play is the tragedy, "Man,"
    And its hero the Conqueror Worm.


    It's Poe (Ravens).
    It's Scary (Ravens Defense).
    It has actors (Some opponents act like they're not scared).
    It has quivering forms and funeral palls (RuthlessBurger got Jacked Up).
    This is a novel I was asked to proofread. The author is giving 10% of the profits to kidney research, which is a big deal in the Darb household. Fair warning; it's a fantasy novel, and the main characters are lesbians. It's three bucks on kindle from Amazon.http://www.amazon.com/WINDOWS-BROKEN...ken+fairy+tale

    America's Nightmare.

    Simple, direct, and speaks to the fact that all the pundits worst nightmare is the Ravens taking the trophy again.

    Not wanting to be a party pooper - but I do not like the names idea. It's like standing up against a wall with a placard round your neck saying 'Shoot me!'

    I like the idea that we fly so much under the media radar that we do not get a 'name' - other than World Champions! This is for a team - not just a 'D'.

    Purple Pain
    I was around for the Purple People Eaters nickname in the 70s, and it was moderately well known. they was also known as the Purple Gang.

    What about D-Purple or Deep Purple, like the group. Are Defense is certainly Deep.

    Primarily I agree with Greg, if nicknames aren't spontaneous, they sound forced, don't catch on, and don't mean jack.

    Having said that, I really like
    Darkside Defense

    Maybe I just missed it since the home page has so much stuff on it, but I didn't see any poll there for this topic.
