MY FAVORITE SPORTS NICKNAME.

I was reminded of my favorite sports nickname. Bill Mlkvy was a star for the Temple basketball team—the Temple Owls—back in the fifties, and still holds the NCAA record for the most consecutive points scored without an intervening score by a teammate (54 in a row). Mlkvy’s nickname: “The Owl without a Vowel.”
