  • Colors

    It's a slack time of year, so if you're bored... how many colors can we come up with for athletes' last names ? I have thought of 7 pretty quickly. And that's w/o looking at a list of colors, which would make it a lot easier.

    Not pushing the envelope too far on real colors, here's 15:
    Paul Blue
    Geno White
    Ron Brown
    Larry Black
    Stanley Redwine
    Darrell Green
    Arthur Orange
    Johnny Gray
    Damu Cherry
    Lorna Silver
    Jeff Gold
    Jhonnette Lemon
    Matt Rose
    Katie Scarlet
    Wayne Ruby

    I'm sure there's more exotic colors I don't know.

              And, if we don't limit ourselves to last names, there's also Jade Johnson.

                Lots of additional Grays, I imagine. Nellie Gray, Stanfor shot puttere of the early 30s is one that comes to mind.

                  There was a high school girl from Ohio in the early 90's (small school :57-:58 400) who had both a first and last name of color:
                  Amber Mustard

                    There's always other languages, of course, like for German Sepp Schwarz, Sabine Braun, Heinz Weiss and Esther Rot.

                    The early favorite for the '68 Olympics in the TJ (ranked No. 1 in '67) was Aleksandr Zolotorayev: zoloto is Russian for gold.

                      Goldfinger. Not many know that he was quite the discus thrower (No, Odd Job couldn't match him).

                        Who can cite the Olympic medal won by Oddjob?
