Raise your hand if you know who “Dolla Beal” is. Anyone? Bueller? This once again proves that giving yourself a nickname is one of the worst ideas a human can have. But Dolla Beal (aka Vandy senior guard Jermaine Beal) has written an open letter to Vandy students urging them not to storm the court after they beat UK later this evening. My favorite line comes when he urges students to keep their cheers “as fresh and as clean as I am”.
Look, I’m ok with a little bravado and getting your fans pumped for a big game, but I cannot, under any circumstances, get on board with giving yourself a nickname. Especially not one as lame as “Dolla”. I don’t even care if it does sound like “Dollar Bill”. Anyway, Jermaine, fans aren’t even going to have a chance to rush the court, so your little letter is a ‘moo’ point. That’s right, it’s like a cow’s opinion- it doesn’t matter.
