What Is The Best Nickname For Kris Joseph?

I am going to start this post by saying thank you. Thank you for all the recent support for the blog, though I am sure the majority of it has something to do with a talented writer making recent submissions(I am referring to @TheNYSportsGuy of course). And it is due to this increased interest that has led to the idea I had this afternoon. Let's have some fun and see if we can come up with a great nickname for the guy who is running away with twice as many votes in the poll for favorite player as everyone else, Kris Joseph.

I knew KrisJo was well liked but I have to admit, I was shocked to see it that much of a differential. And yet, many of us Syracuse fans have listened to broadcasts and seem to be bored with the Air Canada reference. So I wanted to know, what do you think would make a great nickname for the guy?

Referencing Strange Brew? Something else from Canadian culture? Maybe try something university related that is relevant to him?

Hozer Hater? Canadian Bacon? The Flying Elk? Maybe reference him and Wes as Orange Shake and Bake? What do you think it should be?

I will post all submissions into a poll sometime next week that you send either through commenting on here, DM on Twitter or emailing me at . Let's keep in mind that this does not mean it will become his official nickname because let's face it, this blog is not exactly a trend setter but let's have fun with it and who knows, maybe we find one that people seem to like. And I will also have a No Nickname option for those who may think we do not need to give him one(even though again, please keep in mind this is all in good fun and no anything that will legally force us to refer to him as the winning name).

And for the record, the winner will win nothing except the honor of being the person to come up with the name and I may even post it on here if it is an overwhelming winner. I will post all results in a poll next week so everyone has at least a week to think and contribute.

Kris has been breaking oot his igloo big time this year eh.

I really can't think of anything that fits better than Air Canada. Orange Poutine is funny as hell though.

For the record folks, I just got this Tweet from Kris Joseph himself:
"@KrisJo32 @OrangeChuck "orange poutine" lmao. That was a funny one, haven't had a poutine in forever"

James, I do not have a major issue with Air Canada honestly but just want to see what people can come up with and maybe with a bit of more originality.

I will post all results in a poll next week so everyone has at least a week to think and contribute.
