New, more creative nicknames could open up a whole new range of expressions for commentators. A simple "Touchdown!!!" could be replaced by "Mazel Tov!" when "Temple" Bethel Johnson scores. Or if Johnson escapes the defense on a kick return, previously inaccessible expressions like, "Johnson just said Shabbat Shalom to the defense," would now be available for use. This is clearly an improvement for formerly linguistically stymied commentators and fans alike.Oy Vey!
