HoT FiRe is the original nickname for Dayan Viciedo. It was one of the more highly disputed nicknamed in White Sox history. It was created sometime around 2011 by joecoolman aka chiliirishhammock aka the official Soxtalk nicknamer. Some loved it, others hated it.

One important distinction with the nickname was the spelling of it - alternating capital and lowercase letters. This nickname was created around 2011, long before alternating capital and lowercase letters was used in a condescending way as it is now. 

However, new shit has come to light regarding the nickname. It turns out the alternating letters was never part of Dayan's actual nickname. See below by the creator of the nickname.

Joe, it was the spelling of HoT FiRe that got me.

 

That's just in my sig, I've never actually posted that in conversation.

In your opinion, does this diminish the quality of the nickname? I personally think the alternating capital letters defined it. Dayan will forever be HoT FiRe to me. If we could be some input from @ChiliIrishHammock24, that would be appreciated.

You would be better off drinking a nice lukewarm glass of hot dog water than to waste time trying to figure this out.

As far as I’m concerned, the Soxtalk Mt. Rushmore is the following three things in no particular order:

HoT FiRe

peavy44

and the guy about a year ago who posted the 90,000 line post and then the people quoting it in reply   

 

This is the power 3.  Tim at catcher is a close 4 but quickly becoming my favorite.  
 

what do you have?

I've thought about a Soxtalk Mount Rushmore before. Your list is very good. i see you have Tim Anderson at catcher. I think one should simply be "greg775" . Tim Anderson at catcher would fall under that.

The guy has been running the long con for over 15 years. I don't know if he has ever truly broken character. If you were to tell Soxtalk forum members to name the first 5 Soxtalk posters that come to their mind, I'd wager that greg is the most mentioned person. greg most definitely has a spot on the Soxtalk mount rushmore.

I've always thought about it in terms of members. This is mine.

greg775 - as stated above

SS2K5 - most consistently active moderator throughout the time here. Lot of posts.

fathom - longtime active poster, including gamethreads. Known for.gis trademarked pessimism. He's the classic pessimistic fan. 

Chisoxfn - he made this place (I think)

Last good nickname we had was Torpedo Boat imo.  If you don't know who that is it's the guy that fired over to Kong in 2005 for the ultimate White Sox winner.

Apparently we reached the part of the season where people are already drinking heavily.  It shall henceforth be know as the "TLR phase".
