The name game

Was thinking about some of the funny names in baseball and thought I'd create a little game out of it. Players can be current or past. Answers are in the comments.


A water management project completed.

The ashes on one's head on Ash Wednesday.

A canis lupus in heat.

A blue colored bird's contusion.

What you do with an empty soda glass.

Iron tongue meets fruit-filled pastry.

A very heavy child who was born out of wedlock.

When a baby dropped a bottle in the back of a taxi and the lid came off.

What the umpire did when the pitch that walked a batter was outside.

What the guy with three young kids said when his wife told him she was pregnant again.

What the guy had who was eating a rueben at mass.

What the guys asked each other when they were shouting at their friend from far away.

How long did it take you to think all this up?

I am ashamed to say that #3 was my favorite for some reason.

LOL, not long at all. I was thinking about it on the Metro as I was going to work!
