Athletes all over ESPN highlights represent the Spanish language. And so it’s only natural that Dan Patrick popularized the sports relevance for the frase… en fuego. And since you’re already watching 4 collective hours of SportsCenter every day, you might as well learn some Spanish, right?
Here’s a roster of some Red Angle favorites:
TONY ARMAS – TONY WEAPONS // ARMS
Welcome to the gun show, ladies! It’s NRA night at the ballpark!
GILBERT ARENAS – GILBERT SANDS
I’m sure he wants to take his talents to the sands of South Beach also….
HENRY BLANCO – HANK WHITE
If Henry marries Betty White, she’ll become Betty Blanco.
PEDRO GUERRERO – PETER WARRIOR
Brilliant name for just about any war-mongerer!
CHAD CORDERO – CHAD LAMB
I wonder if there is any kinship with Marlins 1st baseman Mike Lamb?
RON JAWORSKI – RUM JAWS
Do you have any idea how difícil it is to break down game film while swimming in Capt. Morgan? (I do. Maybe that’s why my college football experience turned out the way it did….)
CARLOS BOCANEGRA – CARL BLACKMOUTH
Not a good tweak on the classic goatee….
