This Basketball Player’s Name Is So NSFW I Can’t Even Include It In This Headline

The guy’s name is Fuck. Seriously. That’s his name. Guilherme Crabogiale Fuck.

Just imagine the catchphrases him and his fans could (and probably have) come up with using his name.

Fuck is a forward for Medicine Hat College in Alberta, Canada. He’s Brazilian and his name, of German origin, is actually pronounced “Foo-key.” But no one reading in a box score or in a headline here in America would ever know it.

So to prevent any confusion the college started out just using his middle (or first last) name Carbagiale. The conference he plays in, where he is an All-Canadian player, prints the pronunciation in parentheses (foo-kee) next to his name in publication.

“It doesn’t mean what people think it means,” said Fuck. “In German it means fox.”

Not everyone is worried about offending though.

The Medicine Hat News was asked by Medicine Hat College sports and recreation staff to use his first and middle names prior to the season, but will use his proper last name going forward, starting with this story.

“When they asked my opinion I said I want to have my last-last name, I’m not ashamed of it,” said Fuck. “I would rather always use my last-last name. Back in Brazil that’s what I use, I don’t use my first-last name.”

Bro averages 18 points and 10 rebounds per game and is set to play in the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association tournament so March Madness in the Great White North is definitely about to get Fucked (foo-keed) up real soon.
