It may not be the worst, but it's definitely one of the worst. You can thank Don Taylor for that gem.

Guessing he stole it from the old Ricky Ricardo song - Bobaalou?

I thought it was rather stupid as well but if "Bobby Lou" played goal for the blues I would chant it with pride. That SOB can play.

yes, he's somewhat good. I was referring only to his idiotic nickname, which I understand is not his fault.
That aside, yes, he's a competent goalie and I would have no objections to him playing for the Blues.

Yes, yes, he can, but I'd still have to have several dozen beers in me to chant that nickname.

Seriously. By far the most annoying.
Everyone uses that nick as though they are best buds with that man.

I'll admit that Bobby Lou is weak, but come on, there's some really lame ones.

Some that immediately come to mind:

Alexander the Gr8
Sid the Kid
GMGM

Even the generic nicknames like Horc-Horcoff, Smoke-Smolinski, etc, are lame.

There are really only a few great, timeless nicknames out there. Mr. Hockey, The Great One, Air Jordan, etc.

Bobby Lou playing for the Blues in the Lou sounds good.
