They Call Him “The Muscle Hamster”April 27th, 2012
There hasn’t been a good nickname for a Bucs running back since “The A-Train,” Mike Alstott, the great Bucs fullback who Bucs fans still miss.
Well, Joe’s got the nickname for new Bucs running back Doug Martin, and no, Joe cannot take claim for it.
They call Martin, “The Muscle Hamster.”
“I got it from a friend,” Martin said at his introductory press conference at One Buc Palace. He seemed so embarrassed he wanted to hide behind his nameplate in front of him.
Martin said he was tagged with the nickname in college, mostly because of his physique and how he isn’t the tallest guy on the team.
Joe can say this, the guy has a chest that looks like an offensive tackle. Dude’s a barrel chest.
