Find out if Marvel created a special Kansas City Chiefs version of a Spider-Man comic book to commemorate Andre Rison in the most recent Comic Book Legends Revealed episode.
Chris Berman, an ESPN commentator, is most well-known for the nicknames he has given several athletes throughout the years.
Andre “Bad Moon” Rison was given the nickname by NFL wide-out Berman before he joined the Kansas City Chiefs, in honor of the well-known song by John Fogerty and the band Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR).
Prior to the 1997 campaign, Rison signed with the Chiefs. After a touchdown, Rison would act like the well-known comic book character Spider-Man and simulate firing a web from his fingertips. It goes without saying that the moniker stayed.
Rison signed a big free agent contract with the Cleveland Browns in 1995, but his production for the Browns fell off and he moved on after that season. In 1996, he started the season with the Jacksonville Jaguars but was cut after ten games when he clashed with the team’s star quarterback, Mark Brunell.
In a lucky set of circumstances, Rison signed with the Green Bay Packers and went on to perform very well for them in the last five games of the season and got hot in the playoffs, too, with two touchdowns as the Packers went on to win the Super Bowl that season, making Rison one of the most successful instances of a team picking up a released player midseason in NFL
