I always thought it most likely that it originally came from Smokey Joe Wood. But maybe it was later co-opted to mean Pittsburgh...?

Even though the nickname starter earlier, it seems his playing in Pittsburgh, the "Smokey City", is what ignited the usage of "Smokey Joe" over "Cyclone Joe"?!

Scott Simkus

"degenerate into meaningless strings of sound"? Mission accomplished!;) I thought you were writing some bizarre computer code... just kidding, interesting stuff, as usual.
