Fun With Names

We went to the Potdeksel last night to watch the first FC Utrecht match of the season. That was when I discovered that we have a player whose name is Ricky van Wolfswinkel. Such a fantastic last name! It basically translates to Wolf Store; I can only imagine what his ancestors must have done for a living.

He ended up scoring the winning goal last night, in the third minute, no less. FC Utrecht won the match against RKC Waalwijk 1-0, so for the moment, at least, we’re at the top of the Eredivisie (first division).
