Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, May 01, 2021

Yes, I was aware of the Michael Vick-inspired Ron Mexico Name Generator before today. But Gary Shelton’s spin on it, using Tampa Bay-area sports celebs, reminded me of the fun to be had:

The funniest offshoot of the Ron Mexico pseudonym comes from Jerry Greene of the Orlando Sentinel, who points out the name generator at gorillamask.net/ronmexico/. Not that any of them have need of an alias, but Jon Gruden is “Kip Mongolia,” [John] Tortorella is “Giorgio Guam” and Lou Piniella is “Kurt Turkmenistan.”

Also, Carl Crawford is “Gary Mexico,” Vinny Lecavalier is “Adonis Laos,” Derrick Brooks is “Xavier Papau New Guinea” and Ronde Barber is “Bruno Senegal.” [Vince] Naimoli is “Krister Australia,” Bill Davidson is “Bjorn Russia” and Malcolm Glazer is “Franc Barbados.”

As the title of this post indicates, my Ron Mexico cover is “Pedro Chad”. I kinda like it, even though my namesake country is a French-African backwater. (Maybe I could use the French/native spelling, “Tchad” — closer to my real last name, anyway.)

It’s probably better than the alias that spit out for my friend, Kirby — his is “Gunther Afghanistan”.
