NAMES
Sirs:
Every once in a while I notice in your SCORECARD section items under the heading "Names, Please." I thought I would add some trivia that might interest you in this area. I played basketball at South Georgia Junior College in 1966-67. During this period we had players on our roster with the following names: King, Guest, Blizzard, Rabbitt, Greengrass and O'Rourke. Our student manager's name was Mountjoy. Once, while our team was playing in a tournament at Florida State, a spectator, upon seeing our names on the backs of our warmup jackets, approached our coach and said: "There is no way a human being can be tagged with a name like Rabbitt, and how did a good Irishman like O'Rourke end up playing with people who have those kinds of names?"
