The Name Game, 2002
By Malamute, posted 15 March 2002

Although guys like Lenny Haines (he might lend you some underwear) have graduated from the Husky Hall of Names, there are plenty of new dawgs ready to take their places.

For example, who’s the fastest guy on crutches? You know! Great, then play the name game and see if you can guess some others.

You’ll find a variety of names in this list, including posters, web site administrators, Husky players, coaches, and beat writers.

If your up to snuff on Husky handles, cover the answers as you scroll down and see if you can guess the name. Warning: my doctor told me to get more exercise, so I did some stretching. (Players' stats were obtained from dawgman.com)
