All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Sunday, January 09, 2011


I was puttering around Wikipedia this morning, when I saw this on Paul Janish’s page:

Paul Ryan Janish (YAWN-ish), nicknamed “Goose” (born October 12, 1982 in Houston, Texas) is a Major League Baseball shortstop and third baseman for the Cincinnati Reds.

Huh? Goose? Is he really nicknamed “Goose”?

His page has been subject to vandalism before (as have many Reds pages), so I Googled it to see if there were any references. And found this:

Someone on eBay is selling the above Paul Janish t-shirts.

Is he really nicknamed “Goose,” or was some eBay entrepreneur sucked in by a Wikipedia prankster?
