Congratulations, Chargers, you’ve created the nickname of the year

Just three days after being signed by the Los Angeles Chargers, rookie kicker Cameron Dicker – has a nice ring – scored a 37-yard field goal as time expired to help the Bolts beat the Atlanta Falcons, 20 -17. It has all the elements of a good story – an unsigned rookie delivers with the game in play to give his team the W. But perhaps even bigger than the story is the young Dicker’s inspired nickname.

There have been some great kicker nicknames: Greg “The Leg” Zuerlein and Evan “Money Mac” McPherson. Who could forget Sebastian “The Polish Cannon” Janikowski? But the Chargers might have beaten them all now that they’ve gifted the sports world “Big Dicker Energy.”

It’s not just a nickname that’s been making its way onto fan message boards – yes, the Chargers have fans – but a nickname that’s been tweeted by the team’s official page:
