I get it. People are excited about the 49ers new quarterback. Playmaker, franchise savior, soon to be millionaire many times over, a face your spouse would leave you for — Jimmy Garoppolo seems to have everything. Everything it seems, but a proper nickname.

A man like Garoppolo deserves a nickname commensurate with his burgeoning reputation. Primetime. Beast Mode. Sweetness. Slingin’ Sammy. Megatron. Just a word or two evokes a picture of performance. We can find those words. We need to find those words. And given our sports enthusiasm, of course it involves a bracket.

I painstakingly sourced the entire internet for all the available Garoppolo nicknames. I then put each name through an advanced algorithm to find the sweet 16. I put about as much effort into this as Phoebe Buffay’s grandmother put into her famous chocolate chip cookie recipe.

The players

Jimmy Goatroppolo (aka Jimmy [insert goat emoji]roppolo)

I thought about including a blurb for each nickname, but the fact is if you need an explanation for the nickname then it probably sucks.

Honorable Mention

Jim God Cooter. This is just phenomenal. And if we were all Lions fans, this would probably be a 1 seed. Player just doesn’t fit the system.

The bracket

The battles

The Sweet 16 round voting will be open until January 3rd at 11:59 pm Pacific. Vote for your favorite nickname in each battle. Separate articles for Elite 8, Final 4, and Championship battles will be posted as we proceed through our very own version of the playoffs.

Voting

In the immortal words of Abraham Lincoln:

“Elections belong to the people. It's their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.”
