Aaron Rodgers is NOT A-rod!

I know there's no copyright on nicknames, at least I don't think.  But Aaron Rodgers should NOT be called A-rod.  That's a nickname that belongs to Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez.  I heard someone last week say A-Rodg, but even that's too similar. 

How about 12-gauge?  He wears #12, he has a rifle for an arm, and a lot of times he lines up in the shotgun formation.

Or Ocean's 12...since he's from California and has a "surfer dude" mentality?

Any suggestions?

Oh, and I've never called the Chargers' LaDainian Tomlinson "L.T."  That's a nickname that belongs to Lawrence Taylor, and there's not a man in the NFL bad enough to take it away from him.

Until next time...
