Welcome to the Name Hall of Fame: Dick Pole, we salute you. You, good sir, are an American legend — a man with a mullet who will let you know it. Your mustache is sculpted, as are your pristine eyebrows. Your feathered locks wave in the wind like Old Glory herself. And then there's your name, a gift from your mother and father bestowed on the country and millions of fans of the national pastime. It's a name so simple, so classic, that it will never be duplicated. Two names, eight letters, one big thank-you. Yes, thank you, Dick Pole, for never tucking your name between your legs and going by "Richard."
