Name Game

I was recently reading The Hockey Book by Sports Illustrated and I came across a page of player nicknames. One that really stood out was Marc-Edouard Vlasic’s nickname “pickles”. This is because of the popular pickle brand Vlasic. I thought it would be interesting to do a post on players with first or last names that are also names of companies or brands. If you know of any other names please let me know in a comment.
