Greg McKegg – The Power of Rhyme

It’s good to be back here at the Funny Names Blog after a long pause. It is always a joy to bring news of the finest names of the most accomplished people to your screens. So let’s get straight to it!

Today, a classic for sports lovers – the great Greg McKegg.

His name always brings a smile to the sportscaster’s face. Even if we can’t see them calling his name, we know it makes them happy. I know it makes me happy.

McKegg is a forward playing hockey for the Carolina Hurricanes, a team named with the patented “worst thing that ever happened here” scheme also used by the Chicago Fire, the San Jose Earthquakes, and the Los Angeles Kardashians.

Playing with the number 42, the Hurricanes clearly identified Greg as the answer to life, the universe, and everything. Unfortunately he was apparently not the answer to winning games, as the team has not made the playoffs in nine years.

But once they do, we all know they will celebrate with a big party. A McKegger if you will.

So thank you Greg McKegg, and keep on chugging along.

    If McDonald’s sold kegs, that’s what they would call it. It would pair well with a McEgger McMuffin. I’m still trying to process that they are called the Carolina Hurricanes. That’s like the California wildfires. Soon there will be a team of serial killers. I’m so confused.

      Hah, so very right about the name! I do wonder which marketing department whiz kid came up with that. On the McDonald’s note, you have successfully made me hungry.

    our detroit red wings should change to the detroit polar vortex. maybe it would help.

    • The cost to freeze the rink would go down substantially this winter if they did change their name. I think the wind chill my freeze the puck to the pad and not improve their performance . . . yet.
