Counting down Top 9 of 2010 .. next stop: Number 2!
April 26, 2010 » Naming rights
On our hockey team’s trip to Sweden in the late 1970s, one of the players fell in love with Hubba Bubba chewing gum, because he could make huge bubbles with it. Of course, one of them exploded in his face, covering it completely, and leaving him picking gum off his face for days.
We, the rest of the team, decided to call him Hubba Bubba.
Ironically, that didn’t stick.
