A Dad of two still insists on being called ‘wobbly bollock’ by people just like in his old rugby days, despite having two kids and a respectable job.
40 year old Pete Bowen got the nickname after his youth team initiation at Dunvant RFC when he was 17, because one of his testicles was an obscure shape.
Building Surveyor Bowen said: “I always open conversations with ‘on rugby tour once’ before regaling a homoerotic story from the archive which usually involves men sharing bodily fluids.
“Rugby was a big part of my life for so long and it’s difficult to let it go, loads of ex-sportspeople say that. They probably didn’t drink as many yard of ales as me while wearing bootcut jeans, a white shirt, a Dunvant rugby tie and Reebok classics though.
“Whenever we have team meetings in work and we have to do an ice breaker, I tell everyone that I once showered with Gavin Henson and what my nickname was.
“I caught up with some of the boys up the club the other day and they tried to make out they’d ‘grown up’. I was like ‘come on bumhead, cum face, green bean cock, shit swallower and Dave, we’re not past our prime yet’ before I bought a round and spiked their beer with tequila.”
Bowen wife Theresa said: “We have two boys called Frankie and Alex, or as Pete calls them ‘shit and piss’.
“I just wish he’d grow up and be called Pete, it’s very embarrassing and he needs to let the rugby thing go.
“He’s constantly a pint away from calling all women slags and tickling men on their balls. My staff Christmas party last year was frankly awkward.”
Bowen added: “I keep my Swansea Schoolboys under 11 tie in my car and put it on when I get to the bottom of the road. I can tell everyone’s really impressed and if they’re not I shave their pubes off.”
