An apology to CC

Guess I missed the recent CNNSI.com article entitled, “Punctuation purge: New Brewers P Sabathia ditches dots in ‘CC’.”
I had wondered from the start where the periods had gone…I noticed on many websites, including the site that runs our fantasy baseball league, that it was “CC,” not “C.C.” I initially had thought it was an oversight, but realized that these sites were still going with “J.J. Hardy,” “B.J. Ryan,” and “J.D. Drew.” In my desire to be as proper a writer as possible, I went with the standard…I did do a search on one of the most popular search engines (rhymes with “Doogle”) and found nothing…but my second attempt resulted in finding the above article.
I apologize CC.
I would also like to acknowledge that the other blogger on this site, Jesse Motiff, as far as I know, has been writing it correctly all along.
So…that only leaves one unanswered question left…”Why do the Brewers untuck their shirts after each victory?” My sister-in-law Cathy pointed this out to me, and all I can gather is that it is some superstition that a Brewers’ player came up with…if anyone knows who, when, where, or why this ‘untucking’ started, please let us know…thanks.

    They told the shirt story on FSN last night, maybe the night before.
    It started with Cameron, whose done it his entire career, as a tribute to his dad, who, as the story went, would come home and untuck his shirt after a good days work. It caught on from him, apparently.

    Michael Henk is correct, just wanted to add that they only do it when they win.
