Nickname legend Crazy Legs Hirsch passed away on 1/28/04. I only know he use to play in the NFL back in the day and had a cool nickname. Sure its not as good of a nickname as “T-Bone” but its still pretty cool.

Goodbye Crazy Legs
Didn’t know you, just your name
You had the legs run like a fool
Rams teams on which you played
You ran all over
With that helmet on your head
Became a hall of famer
Just like Otto Graham

And it seemed to me you lived your life
Like a gazelle in the wind
Always throwing the stiff arm
Running just like a freight train
And I would have liked to have know you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your nickname ever did
