Ron Rivera is a gambling man. He loves to roll the dice on short-yardage situations, and now he's getting a kick out of his new nickname. The once-used moniker of "BAMF" is dead, long live Riverboat Ron -- the embodiment of his boat shoes and gambling habits.
Rivera touched on his nickname yesterday, going so far as to speak in the third person and call himself "Riverboat Ron". Thankfully Bill Voth caught the audio and gave us that gem. It got me thinking though, why not more boats? I mean, Greg Hardy wants to name the defensive line "MonStarz Inc." and there's room for more boat names on this team.
I'll take a crack at a few that leaped out to me, leave your best in the comments.
Mike Tolbert = "Tugboat"
This one just fits. He's stout, pulls things along and makes me chuckle every time I see him.
Cam Newton = "Cruise Liner"
He's big, entertaining and good luck stopping him when he gets going.
Steve Smith = "Speedboat"
This one's just kind of obvious.
