Saintuary, the REG-GIE chant started during game 6 of the the 1977 world series at Yankee Stadium. Reggie Jackson had homered twice and when he came up following his 2nd homer, the whole crowd was chanting REG-GIE, REG-GIE, REG-GIE. Jackson proceeded to jack one to dead center into the black seats for his 3rd homer of the game. Sorry, as a lifelong Yankees fan I couldn't let that go, but since then its been duplicated by green bay and I think that should be Bush's chant. It is one of the greatest chants I've heard. Another nickname could be "Reggie Franchise". Steve Francis no longer deserves the nickname and I think it'd be good for Reggie.

1313, I submitted Le Flambeau and the Burning Bush to a couple of companies along with commercial scripts that highlighted Reggie Bush and the City Of New Orleans. At the momement, I've been shot down, not because creativity but greed.

The nickname Flash stuck with D. Wade, I can't see why Flambeau can't stick to Reggie. It certainly has more culture than Flash. Louisiana Flambeau, Flambeau Field, we got the goods right here in the Big. By the way, I also drew up a pair of tennis shoes called Flambeaux.

Yep.

Unless something more catchy comes along, the chants you're gonna hear in the dome is gonna be "REG-GIE, REG-GIE". Not original, but Bush will be in good company and hopefully worthy....



On a side note - Years ago, golfer Jack Nichlaus's son played wide out here at Florida State. He didn't play much. But every time he took the field and made a catch, we chanted "Arnie! Arnie!".


You just never know what nickname will take hold.

How about those immortal words spouted by Booger in Revenge of the Nerds?


"We've got Bush!"

Okay, can we come to an agreement on what we have so far? I know I submitted Le Flambeau, What I was looking for was something with a Louisiana or New Orleans culture, folklore or elegance. Swamp Fox is a good one, has any Saint player had that name?
