It’s an off day for the Minnesota Twins, but the Twins’ manager Ron Gardenhire’s likeness has never been so viral than it is today. Appearing on the interwebs today was the ‘The Ron Gardenhire Nickname Generator’.
It’s simplistic enough, you just type in your last name and Gardy dubs thee your new Gardy-ized nickname. How cool is that! You know you want to check it out, so go to GardyNickname.com.
The fine print is awesome as well:
NOTE: THIS WEBSITE WAS CREATED BY LITTLE IN CELEBRATION OF OUR HOMETOWN NINE AS AN ACT OF PARODY WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OR PRIOR WRITTEN AUTHORIZATION OF THE MINNESOTA TWINS BASEBALL CLUB AND/OR THEIR HANDSOME MANAGER, RON GARDENHIRE. THAT SAID, DAD ALWAYS TOLD US IT’S BETTER TO ASK FOR FORGIVENESS RATHER THAN PERMISSION. SO HEY, @TWINSPREZ … LET’S BE FRIENDS, SHALL WE? AND IF YOU WANT TO DISCUSS IT, WE’RE OPEN ON JULY THIRD – SAY FOR TWINS/YANKEES? GO TWINS!
Little, the company that created the website, is a marketing company based in Minneapolis that has done work for Lowes, Microsoft, Sealy, Target and Wells Fargo.
This all is in celebration of Ron Gardenhire’s 1,000 win as manager of the Minnesota Twins.
In other news, I’m basically Corey Koskie.
