Tally Ho!!




In honor of the Mets new high-flying South Korean pitcher, I present to you...

Top Ten Ridiculous Nicknames Sure to be Given to Mets New Veteran Korean Pitcher by Various Tabloids in 2007

10) Chan "Oh-No" Park (after walks bases loaded for first time)
9) Chan "Walks the" Park (after giving up 7 runs on 12 walks)
8) "Jackie" Chan Ho Park (after getting himself out of tight situation)
7) Chan Ho "No-No" (after pitching Mets first no-hitter)
6) Chan "Bo" Park (after taking up football and ruining hips)
5) Chan "Pimps up, Ho's down" Park (after pitching perfect game)
4) Chan "Tae Bo" Park (after administering another flying kick)
3) Chan Ho "South" Park (after he kills Kenny, er, beans Ken Griffey Jr.)
2) Chan Ho "Paaak" (Boston pronunciation)
1) Chan "Westward" Ho Park (upon return to S.Korea after his release in June)

    with all the great and not so great pitchers that have pitched no-no's after leaving the Mets, such as Tom Seaver, Dr. K, Hideo Nomo, Mike Scott, David Cone, Nolan Ryan, (did I forget anyone?) It would be fitting if someone like Park, or Aaron Sele pitched the first one. I thought that trash-sel would be the first a couple of times.

    i personally want Pelfrey to toss it. Or Oliver Perez, IF he has a 14+ win season.
