Can we stop the Pronk nonsense?

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Game of Shadoes Stevens, Jun 11, 2006.

  1. I've haven't heard a nickname overused this much in years. Enough. It's Travis Hafner. Who thinks his 2007 Topps card with say "Pronk Hafner" like the "Rock Raines" and "Doc Gooden" cards?
  2. This calls for a bunny with a pancake on its head.
  3. Terrell Owens' football card should say "T.O."

    Just for you, FB.

  5. Pronk is Travis Hafner's nickname. If you had Sunday Night Baseball on, you would've heard this approximately 77 times.
  6. It means half project and half donkey (because he looks like one) for anyone confused.

    If the White Sox could get this f'n guy out, you wouldn't have to hear it so damn much.

    Solid effort by the Sunday Night Baseball announce crew of droning on and on about Hafner's "Pronk" nickname without knowing how he got it (Jon Miller: "Like Pronk the Donkey in Shrek!"). It's not like the "He was called 'Pronk,' as in part project/part donkey, when he first came up and the name has stuck ever since" story is new. It's been beaten to death on national broadcasts for going on two years now.

    Man was that embarassing listening Miller beat that to death last night.

    The first time he mentioned that Pronk was the donkey in Shrek, six-year-old Huggy Jr. - a veteran Shrek viewer - said to the screen, "The donkey's name was donkey not Pronk."

    Here's the Rangers backstory: Kevin Mench was "Shrek," (because of his freakishly big head), and Hafner got "Pronk" in turn.
