Can I nominate the nickname Erik Nye "The Science Guy"?
I don't know if thats a real good idea Brother Gantry. Eric is a pretty big dude and he hails from far northern Cali, where folks don't think twice about letting go with both barrels on any deer, bear, wild-cat or snooping tourist who comes meddlin round their private "agriculture" plots in the middle of one of the many national or state forests up there! Not that Eric is involved in that sort of enterprise of course, but he's probably had to protect his family from an irate and heavily armed "farmer" or three while on a workout run or casual Nye family picnic in said forests . I sure he held his own pretty well! On our fantasy team, we just refer to him as Mr. Nye, uum sir.
