Big Baby’s New Nickname Is …

The people have spoken. After tons of official entries and lots of back and forth in the comments section of the site to give Big Baby a new nickname, it came down to two potential winners. The first was Poppi Gee‘s entry of the “The Gooch” (the invisible bully from “Different Strokes”), followed by write-in candidate “The Big Thicket,” which earns points for creativity.

So who won?

Glen’s new nickname is The Gooch!

The definition from UrbanDictionary.com:

1. Name of a bully who used to bother Arnold from the sit-com, “Different Strokes”.

2. Nickname for James Giugliano, a person who used to bully people in the same fashion.

“Watch out for the gooch son!”

(Note: We do not mean the Johnny Knoxville use of the term)

Congrats to Poppi Gee, we will hook you up with a prize from the office.

  • http://heckler@aol.com Heckler


    f*ck what you say.
    kiss my ass.

  • http://heckler@aol.com Heckler

    Poppi Gee is cool peoples (we all know that). Dime just fell sucka to the popularity contest. the same way the nba fans do when they allstar vote. and Dime criticizes the fans for that sort of stuff. how ironic…..

  • David Brandon

    ya man, bent the frame and everything. it was me and 5 girls in the car!! hahahaha ya hit me man an we’ll get up.
    and damn, heckler really wanted to win…

  • GoEasy

    I still don’t get why we are giving him a new nickname….

  • WOW

    Isn’t gooch the space between your balls and your hole? GO GOOCH GO! lol

  • David Brandon

    @ goeasy,
    remember? glen wanted to drop the big baby. he was wildin out over the summer too much and i guess he feels this will make everyone think he’s grown up. ??

  • http://www.WhyCandaceWhySheldon.thatbastard.com Chicagorilla

    Maybe Gee and Riz are the same people, you ever investigate that?

    Or perhaps you are the classic example of a douche, you ever try looking into that?


    I refuse to refer to another man as “Poppi” so i always resort to Gee. congrats and let us know if you get a phone call from “the gooch” to thank you. If you do, make sure you tell him i hate (the entire Circumference of) his GUTs!

  • srb

    Well dime, at least you were able to provide an outlet for the mindless hate of your readers. That’s really all that matters.

  • http://dime AdvancedMind

    Heckler AKA the hater
    thats your new nickname, we all have to endure your retarded rants and mindless comments on here atleast make up for it by giving the man his props, you sounded like a female that didnt get picked for homecoming queen. “O she is cute but not that cute, her hair could of been done up better and look at that dress, o my god tacky”.
    Stop acting bitch made.

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE

    C-Rilla I have notice you never put the POPPI lol I ain’t mad.

    It used to be GEE….followed by a weird saying or something. I only changed it to Poppi Gee when I had my first child (son). Oh yea and me and Riz ain’t the same cats lol.

    Thanks though.

    Heckler no doubt it’s all good.

    DB dang well having 5 girls in the ride does make it somewhat easier I guess lol.

  • David Brandon

    man, today’s posts are crackin me up…
    why’s everyone either secretly hatin tongue-in-cheek style and tryna hide it w/ “LOL’s or “jk” and everyone else is givin him props for winnin. haha! do we have to bring katt williams in here for a hater intervention seminar??

  • David Brandon

    ya it made it easier, but not when its reverted back to the kick, push! LOL

  • Mike Honcho

    I personally liked “He Ate Me”

  • Rizwan

    I love the disparity in the two pictures of the ‘Big Thicket’. He was eagerly waiting for the best entry in the original post and had a big douchey smile.

    When the winner was announced and the ‘Big Thicket’ found out his new nickname, he looked like KG just paid him a visit.

    Love it!

  • Rizwan

    Kidding with you Popps, seeing as your a father!

    Me and him are definitely different people. I’m British!!!

  • jryu

    i agree with Mike Honcho,
    my favorite was “He Ate Me” hahaha

  • Chitown 23/33

    Damn I was rooting for “He Ate Me” too. Congrats though P.G.

  • bigdoggchad

    HAHAHAHA! Hope it catches on so you can here the crowd yell GGGGGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONCCCCCCCHHHHH! When he enters the game or makes a play.

  • The other Aj

    Ok dime I understand the Gooch won (shout out Poppi Gee btw) but we have to save “The Big Thicket”.

    We must use that name for someone. Maybe the next big dummy who almost screws himself out of a great opportunity on a good team…

  • bigdoggchad

    HAHAHAHA! Hope it catches on so you can here the crowd yell GGGGGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCCCCCCCHHHHH! When he enters the game or makes a play. Sorry for re-post had to take the N out of gooch.

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE

    Rizwan you straight homey lol. Pics cracked me up too.
    Wow British, that is cool. You talk with the accent and all?

    DB I’m sure you will be riding again soon. Hey I gotta shell out 600 dollars next month for backing out without lookin lol. Beat this ladies car up good hahahah. Junk is funny now but wasn’t funny then.

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE

    bigdoggchad that would be tight. Or everytime dude hits a shot. Then if they put it in a video game that would be bananas too.

    Chitown 23/33 thanks.

    The other Aj thanks. I agree “Big Thicket” can perhaps be used for Eddie Curry or someone. LOL.

  • LakeShow84

    Come on peeps..

    His name is HECKLER.. look up the definition lol

    Congrats GEE!!!

  • LakeShow84

    Man i really liked the Big Thicket tho..

    Playing alongside KG it cant get no better.. id spit up my dinner if i heard someone say “look at the feed the Big ticket gave the big thicket..”

  • the cynic

    im still calling him big baby until he earns another nickname

  • SWAT

    LMAO i didnt even notice the pics until yall said something. HAHA now he’s ice grillin the camera with tht superhero pose.
    as far as heckler-do yall remember the haters ball from the chappelle show-(Lookin at a pic of rosie o’donnell-“She looks like she wears underwears with dick holes in ‘em”-one of the funniest episodes ever) thts wht heckler reminds me of…just a bitter know it all tht can never give any one props…im pretty sure thts one of the definitions of a d-bag.

  • sh!tfaced

    Grats, GEE…

    The Big Thicket can’t be used just for any player because they need to be teammates with The Big Ticket.

    Now let’s go to the next one and give Greg Oden (and Eddy Curry) a new nickname… LOL

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE

    LakeShow84 Thanks.

    sh!tfaced thanks too.

    I agree on to Greg Oden “Disabled Porn”. LOL.

    Eddy Curry “Sizzler” as in the All-you-can-eat Western Sizzler lol.

    Wasn’t that in White Men Can Jump where Dwayne Wayne (I forget his real name) was like we going to Sizzler, we going to Sizzler lol. Now I gotta go look it up dang.

  • Rbyn U

    Congrats Poppi.

    Can’t wait to read this term actually used for him lol.

  • Andrew Hahn

    Better than “Chocolate Shrek”?

  • the1son

    Dude might go bully another kid when he finds out he is The Gooch. Hide your kids.

    Nice one Pop G.

  • A-Town Down

    (Note: We do not mean the Johnny Knoxville use of the term)

    That is the funniest use of the term lol.

    wtg Poppi

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE

    @Rbyn I can’t wait to see it either lol. Thanks.

    the1son thanks lol yea my son is hidden lol. Hey it’s gonna be funny watching dude play now cause I am gonna be like wow can’t believe the Gooch missed that, or if they are playing Utah I’ll be like get em Gooch lol.

    A-Town Down Thanks and yea if I hear an announcer say something like “They are close to victory and you can smell it on the Gooch” I just hope I am not drinking nothing when it’s said.

  • A-Town Down

    I hope no one is smelling anything on anyone’s Gooch.

    In that picture he does look like that term fits though lol.

  • Rizwan

    @poppi gee,

    accent and all! This is why I love this site, actual fans. Here in London, its more of a statement to be a fan. Look I’m cool and I carry a knife!

    ‘Big Thicket’ will only work if the guy plays with KG, is made to cry by KG, is dumb and fat. Here’s hoping the Celts trade for either Sean May, Eddy Curry or Tractor Traylor comes back to the NBA as the Celtics signed him thinking he is the missing piece on their bench!

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE


    You would probably think I sound crazy when I talk lol. Cause in the South we got a crazy drawl and slang too. Not as bad as Monta Ellis but still real southern.

    I agree on the trade. Would be to funny if Eddy Curry landed with Boston.

  • stephen

    wow…you guys really do suck.

  • David Brandon

    man, why you runnin into old ass ladies for? the last time i did that was YEARS ago! i’m talkin i was rushin’ home to watch booker t fight the rock on thursday night smackdown. like that. lol!! ah, the wonder years…

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE

    DB I ain’t gonna front man, I was upset and had a bad day at work and just straight backed out without looking. Now why this lady would park behind me anyway I don’t know. But yea I tore her stuff up!

    Dang Booker T. fighting the Rock… you were talking back then lol. I miss them days too though lol.

  • Chaos

    aye Gee, congratulations man, i dont think i would have came up with that, but i still liked the Big Thicket and He Ate Me.

    Heckler…you are officially the Playa Hater of the Year! Hes a shoo in. Gee, Heckler hope that all the bad things in the world happen to you and only you and nobody else lol

    can the finalist get a consolation prize Dime?

  • Rizwan

    @Poppi Gee

    You know the Rock would have come up with an awesome nickname!!

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE

    Chaos thanks. Dave Chappelle right lol @ Player Hater of the Year.

    Rizwan yea the Rock would have had something special lol.

  • anomalyboss

    congrats to gee for winning, can’t be mad at you for that. BUT, i don’t think we should be giving this cry baby clown a new nickname just because he’s been acting like i BIG BABY. So that being said, hope this new nickname does NOT stick. Glen “Big Baby” Davis for life! he’s got no game anyway. What kids are goin to school the day after a Celtics game and sayin, “Hey man did you catch those 9 min Big Baby played last night? Those 2 boards he had were ferocious!”

  • baron

    Green Acres Davis

    Glen Dunkin Do-Davis

    Stay-Puft Davis

    Glen Buddha Davis

  • baron

    The Big Meal Ticket
    Double Whopper Davis

    You know what, your little contest may be over, but fuck the dumb shit, from now on I dub thee:

    Glen “GRAVY TRAIN” Davis

  • baron

    The term GRAVY TRAIN also refers to obtaining a windfall. Along with this reference, you might also hear the term “MEAL TICKET.”

    Another common use of the term gravy train is to describe a person’s ability to make a lot of money with a minimal investment of time, effort, or resources. Acting, singing, or otherwise performing, PLAYING PROFESSIONAL SPORTS, creating an invention and collecting royalties, or making lucrative investments are often considered gravy train activities.

  • Mac Mac

    CONGRATS Poppi Gee! Watching The Gooch on tv now. It fits him lol.

  • dlz

    They need to make a shirt freeze framing him pusing that kid and under the photo in caps print THE GOOCH! lol nice win PGee.

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE


    anomalyboss thanks and yea he can be a cry baby lol.

    Mac Mac lol Thanks, they are talking about not calling him Big Baby, someone tell them it’s THE GOOCH LOL. I need to get on my Twitter game and holla at Kenny.

    dlz Thanks. That would be hilarious. Have a Gooch Bobble Head night and have him his bobble head pushing the kids lol.

  • smack dat

    I’d rather settle for the Knoxville definition.

    After all, he is as irrelevant as a gooch.

  • Tha Best

    Congrats G I am watching The game too hoping to hear THE GOOCH!

  • http://myspace.com/40sand9s loc

    I love that nickname,

    also the nickname of Teds girlfriend on the TV show “Scrubs”.

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE

    @Tha Best Yea I am watching all of this one with the fingers crossed lol. Ya never know right. Thanks too.

  • Tino

    Maybe Dime should run a contest once a month on giving a NBA player a new nickname.

  • Moon

    You guys copied SLAM with this one…nice!

  • Mike

    I think I will just call him “The Douche”.

  • heechul

    shoulda been stretchmarks

  • budz

    bobo nyo naman!

  • Sweet English

    You bitch when some no name who doesnt read Dime wins a competition

    You Bitch when one of Dimes longest posters and readers actually makes a valid (hilarious) entry and wins something.


    (P.S Anyone who watched the first Jackass Movie should know that ‘The Gooch’ is also the name for the area of skin between your sack and your hole, I’m gonna assume POPPI new this)

    And GEE what happened to the ‘New Name Every Day’ era?

    That and Tyrone (O.G) were the only reason i used to read the comment section.

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE

    Sweet English I had to go to one name because it took to long for my comments to get posted with a new program Dime is using I guess.

    When I would try to switch it up everyday I would get “Your comments are being moderated” lol. Then by the time they would post, my comment would be irrelevant.

    So now the new era is just 1 name.

    Yea I enjoyed Tyrone’s comments too.

    True Thugs never Lie lol.

  • http://www.WhyCandaceWhySheldon.thatbastard.com Chicagorilla

    Oh snap. I forgot about $h!tty Ty.

    He would have came up with some dopey nicknames

    Glen “True Thugs never lie” Davis
    Glen “He be dishin dem dopey dimes” Davis.

    Damn you Tyrone for leaving DIME, Dammmmnnn yooouuuuu!!!!

  • life-p

    Now who’s going to tell Glen his new nickname is the Gooch?

  • Sweet English

    Sorry POPPI but Tyrone just topped your nickname through the medium of Chicagorilla.

    Dishin’ Dem Dopey Dimes Davis


    It’s funny cos it’s ironic.

  • Sweet English

    Speaking of Dime posters who i will always miss, does this make anyone nostalgic?…

    ‘Hi Hi its the big jurgy jurg from the denmark! Remember Dime, Jurgy has his top 10 euroleague players! Hi Hi everybody!’

  • http://www.WhyCandaceWhySheldon.thatbastard.com Chicagorilla


    yeah i remember that cat.

  • http://twitter.com/PoppiGEE POPPI GEE

    Jurg was crazy lol Young fed too with his daily songs of the day.

    Hey Tyrone will make a every 4 to 6 months comment.

    life-p I am sure he got a fb or twitter page lol and knowing him he actually checks his stuff. I am sure somehow it will be ran by him.
