i got it for the first time from going an hour on a treadmill this past winter. wasn't even a super intense hour. anyway, it took like a month to go away and was like a stabbing pain whenever i walked. awful.

any cardio i've done since has been low impact.

Am I the only one who never knew this?

The full name on Russell's birth certificate is Geoffreye O'Neal Addison Robert Watts Jr III.


Addison's unusual first name comes from a character played by actor Bruce Willis on the 1980s hit television show Moonlighting. His mother, Milany Ocampo-Russell, was a great fan of Willis and his character, detective David Addison, and decided to name her son after him. It is only a coincidence that Wrigley Field's address is 1060 W. Addison Street. His full name was much longer, with his original first name being the oddly-spelled Geoffreye; when his mother married his stepfather when Addison was 13, he got to choose the name he would go by and selected Addison, combined with his stepfather's last name of Russell.

that's good so he's able to name like six of his kids after him before he has to start doubling up

I knew the Moonlighting thing re: Addison, but I can't remember for sure if I knew he had that crazy long name. I think I did.

Other fun with names:

Bryant's full first name is Kristopher (gross)
Almora's first name is Reinaldo
Heyward's middle name is Alias
Javy's first name is Ednel
Hendricks' middle name is Christian
Wade Davis' middle name is Allen, which ALMOST makes him a serial killer (Wayne Allen seems to be the first/middle name of many murderers)

I knew he had a crazy long and odd name. Don’t remember where I learned that but I think it was Len during a broadcast. I still don’t get how you can you be a III and a Jr.

Addison Russell is like my third grade daughter, doing multiplication but not really understanding what it means.

It was called "Addison Russell is awesome and deserves a thread" until the whole 'maybe possibly hit his wife' thing happened.

i want to say that was a different thread because i thought i started that one in 2015 around when/before he came up

but i could be wrong

edit - nevermind, it absolutely was this one. i could've sworn we had a russell thread in 2015 tho.

more surprising than finding out there's a television program out there called "superior donuts" was finding out it's in its 2nd season
