Athletes adding "Jr." or "Sr." to their names
Has anybody seen this, noticed this?

Seems to be a big trend among several athletes these days. What's the psychology behind this, anybody know?

IMO this is a trend, just like NBA players wearing thick-framed glasses they don't need.

We get it....you didn't abandon your child.

It started with Steve Smith who actually did it because the Giants had another, shittier Steve Smith who he was confused with.

Is this assuming their babies will themselves become NFL players one day? Seems pretty arrogant to me.

I think it is a dig at their own fathers who were not around

that's a joke from Pardon My Take. As if we are confusing a 6'5 WR with his infant son we never see

Don't most individuals who have a son who shares their name, change their name to SR?

Last year Arkansas had a guy that added Sr. to his jersey nameplate. Wasn't there the year before and obvious what he'd been up to in the offseason.

Did George Bush know his son would be a fricking president? No, but guess what, good fricking thing he added Jr to his name otherwise we'd be confused as shite. Mofos will find anything to complain about.

my understanding was he added the Sr. because he was proud of having his son.

I have no problem with this.

Yeah, I don't understand the point of adding "Sr." to a last name when your son isn't even close to reaching the pros. The only times it's been appropriate to use Sr. was when the Griffeys and Raines' played with each other.

I used to work with a (decidedly unfamous) guy who had stationary made up with "From the desk of _________ Sr." like the week his son was born. Of course, he was the kind of pretentious douche who had personal stationary made up. We all laughed behind his back.

His son is not Jr because he doesn't have the same name.

Father: George Herbert Walker Bush
Son: George Walker Bush


Father is H.W., and son is W.
