I know a lot of people already know the story behind the name "The Nellys," but I just wanted to fill in those who might be a little curious. Rich is known to his teammates as Nelly. So much so that many don't know who Rich Nelson is, but they know Nelly. I, too, have become a Nelly now that we're married. Many of his teammates refer to us simply as the Nellys, and we both like it. So, the name has stuck.
