2008 NOTY First Round: Bulltron Regional
No. 7 Da'Veed Dildy: Stanford men's basketball player. Excellent use of apostrophe. Extra credit for innovative spelling of pedestrian first name. Then there's his surname.
No. 10 Spaceman Africa: Drunken English soccer fan who changed his name. Buddy Crazy Horse Invincible didn’t make the cut.
