Heartbreakingly Great Names #29: Buster Rhymes

**This series highlights those few lucky [and unlucky] athletes that have names that make you stop and do a double take.**

Born George Rhymes [Buster was his middle name] he played two seasons with the Vikings before moving to the CFL.  After his 1985 season he held the record for kick-off return yardage.

1986 Topps #296 Buster Rhymes

Thanks to reader Mike D. for sending me this great card.

At first I thought this post was going to be a custom for Busta Rhymes... then I read about the actual athlete. Cool name... I wonder if Busta got his name from Buster.
