HE'S GOT THE NAME, SOON THE FAME?
Now this is a name you notice. From today's sports transactions:

Calgary Stampeders (CFL) - Signed linebacker Charles Assmann.


This is perhaps the greatest football name since "He Hate Me", aka XFL poster boy Rod Smart.

It's either a misspelling, or else an unfortunate translation of a non-English name (perhaps African or Arabic, my guess).
