Moose Nation is a particular favorite as he is a self-proclaimed "THUG." Or Totally Humble Under God. An interesting and positive twist. Additionally, Pro-Football-Reference.com lists star defensive end Chris Long as owning @CL9One, but a quick visit to the page indicates that it is no longer active.
