    I’ve used “the big three” subconsciously a couple of times on my blog. It’s catchy, I think you guys have started something :)

    about 6 months ago, i started calling Alex Rodriguez “A-Rod”. like J-Lo.

    i’m still waiting for the credit.

    Sam Elliot at Lohud on Phil Hughes. It’s reading articles like this that make the Santana non trade special

    Way to go with creating the term Big 3. It’s super creative, and has never been used in any other context in the history of life.


    I just randomly had a good one last week “Bronx Bombers” for the Yankees. This is because they play in the Bronx, and they hit the ball pretty hard…

      i’m picking up a hint of sarcasm.

      this from a guy calling himself ejeezy. how’s the view from that glass house, bro?

      • ejeezy

        The view is crystal clear…bro

    Seriously, though… Joba, Ian, Phil… how about “The Notorious J.I.P.?”

    • ejeezy

      Now THAT is an original moniker…

    Not for nothing, but anytime there’s a group of three people that have some distinction, it seems they’re referred to as the Big Three.

    Me and two of my coworkers that all started off at the level and went to the same college are referred at our office as the “Big Three”

    If these guys want a catchy nickname, Big Three isn’t probably the way to go since its used in a million different other things.

    Not trying to rain on anyone’s parade, just saying its hard to invent the term Big Three.
