A Soccer Player Named Hulk


So I've been happily watching the 2014 World Cup on tv.  Today I was watching an elimination game between Brazil and Chile, and I noticed that there is a Brazilian soccer player named "Hulk".  I checked on wikipedia and it turns out that he is Givanildo Vieira de Souza and he is called Hulk not because of his size, but because of his facial resemblance to Lou Ferrigno.  I love the fact that a lot of the Brazilian footballers just go by their first names, and in my fan-boy opinion, "Hulk" is definitely the coolest name on the squad.
