J.J. Watt Gets A New Nickname From Teammates

I'm a big fan of nicknames and I'm also a big fan of J.J. Watt. That in itself means I'm going to be predisposed to Connor Barwin hanging the big rookie with a new moniker.

I'm just not sure I like it, exactly.

Let's go to the tweets:

@ConnorBarwin98 ATTENTION TEXANS FANS: JJ Watt's new nickname is "The Milk Man"...because he always delivers! (and he's white)

I mean, I get it. It's the same reason Karl Malone was the Mailman. Plus, he comes from Dairy Country up in Wisconsin, so that makes sense, too.

Just not sure it rolls off the tongue. I like alliteration in my nicknames and something that's easy to roll off the tongue in conversations. Milk Man doesn't do that nor does it shorten easily. With The Big Puma, you could always shorten it down to just Puma if you needed.

I know, I know, I'm thinking too much about it. It's a good name, but I think it could be better. Let's keep working and see if we can come up with something better.
