Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Wednesday, December 15, 2021

About a third of a year ago, I swapped out the name “The Critical ‘I’ “ for, obviously, “Population Statistic”. It was time for a change, and it was a good one.

But since then, I’ve had the nagging feeling that the transformation was incomplete. Sure, I changed the name of my blog, but I myself was still lugging around the same name I’ve had for three whole decades! Didn’t seem right.

So, I’m considering re-branding my own self. After all, our names and our identities are indelibly linked, so a name change is the first step toward a whole new life relaunch. Or something.

Here are the three finalists:

1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo. It’s got a nice ring to it!

2. Branko Radivojevic. I’ve got to face facts: I’m 33 years old. If I’m ever going to break into the NHL, I’ve got to make my move now, baby; and the unlikelihood of a lockout resolution could be my opening. I figure swiping adopting the name of an established player will give me a competitive advantage over any other would-be scab players. Plus, I want a name that will be sure to trip up Craig Kilborn when he inevitably returns to SportsCenter.

3. Oh yeah, the third one… Um… errr… man, this is some kinda pressure.

Oh, okay, I’ve got one:

Craig Kilborn.

I can’t miss with any of them, really. Maybe I’ll adopt all three, and alternate them at my discretion. That’s the ticket!

  1. Don’t rule out politics. You could always change your name to capitalize on voter recognition (See: John Plummer - 1980 - Bus Driver to Florida House or Eddie Murphy in The Distinguished Gentleman). I know… how about “Charles Crist”. All that’s left is to pick your post… you’d be a lock.

  2. Perhaps I would be a lock… But I could never pull off Charlie’s patented head of white hair — that’s truly the source of his political power!

    Ah, The Distinguished Gentleman. An underrated flick (although not extremely so).

  3. Go with Radivojevic. Since there’s not going to be hockey this year (something I am totally disgusted with) they’re bound to hire scabs.

  4. […] tty? News to me. And “Snorri Gudmundsson”… I’ll have to add that one to my new-name candidates. It’s already taken, but I’m sure thereR […]
