June 11th, 2012 by slangon

Roy Sievers obtained his nickname of “Squirrel” as a boy playing basketball. “When you’re in high school at that age, you’re a little goofy anyway,” Sievers said. “I played basketball, baseball, and ran a little track. In basketball one day, a kid said, ‘You know what? You’re really squirrelly, you know that?!’ From that day on, that was my nickname. It just stuck to me.”
