How Dare Wikipedia Miss Him?


While looking for a list of nick names for NFL players, I came across the wilipedia article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NFL_nicknames).

Guess what they were missing: Spiderman

Guess what I did:

Spiderman_medium

via s9.postimage.org

And Guess what I gave as the reference for it:

Image_medium

via s9.postimage.org

If you cant see the images, meet me after the jump for an appropriate textual (:P) post !

Spiderman[108] Joe Webb

Drafted as a wide receiver by the Minnesota Vikings, on Brett Favre's insistence Joe Webb was signed to the team as a back-up QB. Went on to lead Vikings to a win in Philadelphia, against Michael Vick and the Eagles playing a must-win game. Lovingly called Spiderman, due to his last name.

Reference 108 is: www.dailynorseman.com

So if somebody from Wikipedia comes asking, please let them know that DN came up with it. I forgot if it was CG or TG..wow..I am on fire! Well, feel free to edit the post on Wikipedia if you have a better source.

EDIT: CanadianViking informs me that it was him who gave the Spiderman his name. Thanks CV!

you can also go to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NFL_nicknames#cite_ref-107) and rate the page for its trustworthiness. Let me know some other nicknames that are missing from the lists.

SKOL!
