Game of the name

Listening to a game on the radio can give you a new perspective on players' names. Some guys simply have names that are meant to be said aloud. For MSU, Jason Wiley has it, as do the four-syllable players: Zacharias and Canzanello. Anchorage has a couple great names in Winston DayChief and Shane Lovdahl. But their best is Kane Lafranchise because it sounds like he's being called, "The Franchise." With a name like that, it's too bad he's a defenseman and not a first-line center.

Love the Wiley comment. Don't know if you know him personally, but he's a character and worthy of a great "yelling" name. He's fun to watch. Thanks for the blog--I enjoy reading the stories.
