Matty Ice

8 posts in this topic

I am guessing it is a play on the collegiate nickname for Natural Ice beer. Everyone calls it Natty Ice, and it is a staple of most frat parties. His calm cool demeanor, combined with a play on words that most college kids get = Matty Ice.

I know he got it in college, but I don't know the exact circumstances. Perhaps it was because of his clutch performances at the end of games or cool demeanor on the field?

I'm 99.9 percent sure it was a high school nickname. From what I remember, he got kidded about it at first when he got to BC. Then they found out it was true.

According to Wikipedia, your nickname is "Matty Ice."

I didn't even know I was on Wikipedia. I'll have to check that out.

I suppose it's because you're a big Vanilla Ice fan.

Nah. It started when I was a freshman or sophomore in high school. One of my high school buddies came to visit me [at BC], and it just kind of stuck.
