FanShot

Nickname seeks Indian.

7

I'm a big fan of this feature over at NotGraphs, and also a big fan of making up obtuse and strange nicknames for players. I lament the laziness that dominates current nicknaming practices wherein basically every player is a sad, unimaginative variation of the pedantic J-Lo Method. So by stealing Dayn Perry's NotGraphs thunder, I hope fellow LGTers might indulge me the honor of submitting a current or past Indians player who fully embodies the nickname of "English Leather" A men's cologne originally created by Dana in 1949, English Leather was a somewhat popular, economically-priced fragrance for men along the lines of Canoe or Aqua Velva. Basically, a KMTA (Kevin Millwood Type of Aftershave) A perfect "small market" scent, no? And as history has shown, English Leather is no stranger to sports. Once the nominations are in, I'll follow up with a poll to vote the winner of this prestigious autre nom. All your men may wear English leather, but only one can be a Cleveland Indian.
