This month’s contribution to the Blog of Funny Names. Sports writer, Red Smith.
We at the BoFN love names with alliteration. Say it with me. Walter Wellesley “Red” Smith.
While Smith is not a funny name, add a color and you get a whole lot more.
Let’s get the ball rolling. What’s black and white and red all over? The newspaper. Bah dump bump.
There was a time when sports reporter Red Smith was read all over. 275 newspapers in this country and 225 newspapers in other countries around the world.
Young Red grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Not to be confused with Red Green, who is a fictional person played by Steve Smith.
Red graduated from Green Bay East High School in 1923. The original home of the Green Bay Packers until 1957. (Go Packers).
