Much like Bryce Cotton last year, Josh Fortune has a new nickname, and he doesn’t even know it. After listening to the game last night in which Fortune drilled 6 shots (including 4 threes) in the closing 5 minutes, it became clear to me what we should start calling our sharpshooting freshman. Sure, there are some other cute ones floating around, such as “The Cookie”, “Solider of Josh Fortune”, and “Wheel Of”. I wasn’t really feeling those. Well, Fortune is a streaky shooter who is capable of going on huge runs like he did last night. Therefore, I think we should now start calling him FIRE, to perfectly complement our existing Ice (Cotton).
Let’s make this happen. Friartown, tell all your friends and start posting about it on Facebook and Twitter. Go ahead and tweet the players, coaches, and other fans! Students, start making the signs and get some T-Shirt designs going. Fire and Ice is coming to the Dunkin’ Donuts Center this season.
