I'm killing time waiting to see if our embies have made their home so I thought I'd pass the time with some stories. I did promise one way back so it's time to tell up: How Hammer got his nick name.
Hammer is not a name that I came up with for our blog. It's a name that was dubbed upon him back in freshman year of college on move in day. He was busy unpacking a box of items to put in his dorm room. It was a building made up of upper classman and freshman so there was the ever popular hazing of the freshmeat. Hammer was their prime target. One of the upper classman, wearing nothing but a towel, walked up to Hammer while he was on his knees unpacking. "Hey buddy, got a hammer?," he asked. Then, from behind, a guy runs up and yanks off the towel from around his waist. Hammer was standing face to um...yeah...Mr. winky. And the guy just says, "So how about that Hammer?" All he could do is yell at the guy to get out of his room. But the name Hammer stuck to this day.
