Ah! Atari Bigby- I used to be such a big fan of his! Another good (former) Green Bay Packer player name would be Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila...it's just fun to say!

Not only is he less well-known, but he has accomplished far less than Sharpe, whether it be by season or through their whole careers.

half of these last names are not unusual like mccoy, edwards, samuel, and johnson. most of the first names are like edgerrin, marcedes, alge (who names their child after fish)

Level 75
Sep 3, 2014
well considering the quiz is unusual FIRST names, the last names don't need to be unusual. And Alge isn't a fish...it isn't anything. Algae is a plant? And besides, his name is Algernon. Alge is a nickname.
