Semi-OT: The name you didn't use

Everybody who posts here has picked a user name, and many have at one time or another had a blog or at least throught of starting one. So what names have you thought of using but didn't? Obviously if you post it, you risk somebody else using it, so maybe just stick with the ones that really aren't relevant anymore.

Who should go first? Me? Oh, okay...

I've toyed with the idea of doing a Giants blog on and off. It's hard to write every day -- at least it is for me -- what with waiting for inspiration and, well, talent... But I did get as far as picking out the name.

On the topic of blog names they do seem to tend towards either the club name. a geographical location, a play on the name of the home ballpark or one of its features, or a player name.

Way back when it was relevant (dinosaurs roamed the Earth or about 2.07 years) I had the notion to fire up a blog called "The Ort Cloud" as an homage to Dangerous Dan Ortmeier and his cohorts. (If you dont know what the Oort Cloud is, click here.)

The rationale was that Ortmeier was about the average talent level of the offense making him kind of a symbolic figure on whom one might pin some hopes. Boofesque in one ugly word.

The Oort cloud is remote; as remote as the Giants hopes of the playoffs. The Oort cloud is thin; so were the Giants hitting options until shiny shiny Pablo Sandoval and others began to make some favorable impressions. Etc and so on...

Good luck in Colorado, Dan, and if any Rockies fan wants to use the name, you have my blessings.
