Posters From the Old Boards

Postby Barry Mike Hawkiner » Wed Feb 03, 2016 11:21 am

Fun little topic bringing back some nostalgia from The Official TBBBB, The UTBBBB Tbaybucs, and now Buczone. Its been a long ship ride and many of our old friends haven't made it through the wreckage.

Who were some of the posters from the old boards do you remember and what about them do you remember the most?

I'll start:

Optimus Pop - always wrote in bold and everyone thought he/she was a pedophile

Fooball - posted an article almost every day of some write up piece about the bucs from some corner of the world. Entertaining to some (including myself), was ran out of town because of some poster issue I believe

BucsNBiceps - wrote like he was always on pre-workout supplements

Johnny Chan - insightful poster with strong opinions both positive and negative about the team. quick to bash another poster about their opinion

Lachyrm - see 'Chan'. I used to not like Lachrym because he/she was pretty negative from the start but seemed to know a good deal about football

shpxjvg - troll

Snake - used to think was a troll but became insightful as time passed

Digital_Damage - Narcisitic, sadist, cold buc fan

The Falcon Jedi - always was around when the falcons were winning

Spot on Dtan - "Noodle arm Matty Rattic!"

DaBucsGM - good inside information on Madden updates

-and then there was someone who I remember that always had some little ugly dog in their photo


And last: One of my favorite memories was when the Official board was within minutes of closing and several posters just took to a bashing at others on a whole other level of hatred. Very fun to watch like a collapse of rome and the admins had already left the city.


Feel free to add posters your remember and the memories from the old boards! Cheers!

I remember that last night when the admins had stopped enforcing rules, pretty entertaining.

BFT - Pompous

I loved the old/original board. But it was a different time before social media took off. My only complaints would be; how heavy handed it was moderated (probably due to being a corporate board) and the elitism that occurred.

Lots of great posters there. Great discussions and lots of lols. The meltdowns were some of the best message board entertainment I've ever seen. But maybe they are like fishing stories that get better w/ time.

A good deal of that was strictly because the Mods/Admin at the official board thought it was good practice to suspend/ban/slander posters they had personal problems with.

Some of those guys made it over here originally. Lachy and Johnny started, and stopped posting here(Lachy does come back tho), shpxjvg got banned, and Digital_Damage is currently serving a self-imposed ban in a bet with Bootz over Winston.

Yep. The "elitism," as you put it, really stood out. It reminded me of HS & Jr. HS cliques where you were either in their clique or you didn't exist other than to be bullied. I saw very little there that reminds me of the more community type environment that was fostered at the new board(s) after that place was shut down. The non-official BucZone and the previous one (before Larry) are/were far superior to the official bb imo.

Secrets- Correctly predicted us signing Brandon Myers, Alterraun Verner and cutting Darrelle Revis and IIRC said he worked in the Bucs FO. Went into the witness protection program after he told us we were drafting Johnny Manziel and we didn't.

Whoever still has a valid login to Larry Land, go there and search "Rector." I was the official Rector of the TBBBBBBBBBBBB Hall of Fame, and I'm pretty sure that I cut-and-pasted the original thread into his site.

Yessir

In an effort to make myself useful around here, I have decided to take on the roll of the official rector of the TBBBB Hall of Fame. As the years pass, I will edit this first post to add the new classes. If/when I ever leave the board, I will pass my rector duties on to the next willing member. That is all.

CLASS OF 2006

Chicbucsmom

Induction speech presented by sapp is da man

sapp is da man said

I am absolutely honored to be presenting Legend of the TBBBB to the following honoree. To look at her name, you would have never guessed that she is anything but your typical mom.

This lady has long been the reigning princess of the tbbbb….she’s the gal that all the men want to be with and all the girls just want to be. SonsofElvis once told her that she had the looks of a Miller Lite model…I don’t believe there is a greater compliment. But looks aren’t everything.... she’s also as smart as a whip…she played a huge part in uncovering one of the greatest scams to hit the tbbbb. And she also knows how to use a whip.

To meet her in real life is to love her. She’s an absolute sweetheart with a heart of gold, generous to those she cares about and to complete strangers. When she read that a fellow poster's child was undergoing surgery, she organized a collection and brought toys (along with the lces) to the little boy after he came out of the hospital. I feel sorry for those who don’t know her as well as I do, she’s a fascinating lady who smashes any preconceived notions you would have of the mother of a brood as large as hers. Never has a double entendre been left unturned in her presence….She may be chicbuc’s mom but she is also now an official LEGEND OF THE TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS BULLETIN BOARD.

So congratulations to Chicbucsmom! Now all the men you have crushed can say their heart was broken by a LEGEND!



Patrick McIrish

Induction speech presented by BucFanTexas

BucFanTexas said

I have to admit... it's an honor to be presenting this man into the TBBB Hall of Fame. His name alone sends chills of anger deep within those that oppose or cannot understand his style. Though his name will be announced at the end of this post, it will become quite obvious of whom I am referring.

Four years ago when I was a new poster, and had NO clue how to handle myself or my opinions on this forum, I was the epitome of the kinds of that this man preys on. The funny part is he doesn't intentionally prey upon them, they perceive it this way. I've taken my lumps from him, disagreed with him and throughout it all have remained cordial with him. Why? He has a brain, he has wit, he has charisma, and he has the innate ability to monopolize this board with just the very mention of his name, or initials, let alone his words... I have yet to see any poster achieve a 5-page thread as fast as this man can.

What started out as a seemingly lone voice wading through the waters of discontent has ended up as a resounding theme on the forums. Though he won't take credit for it, he knows it's the case.

Those that know him - understand him, appreciate him and respect him. Those that hate him do so with a passion. I equate his presence here with the opinions people had of Shakespeare - either they understood him, or despised him - there is no middle ground. I'm one of the ones that not only respect him, but seek his comments on this forum and look forward to buying him lunch at the Beau Rivage Casino within the next week or so.

It gives me great pleasure to present the ONE AND ONLY....

I'm an 0-26 Survivor

Induction speech presented by bucwench

bucwench said

I am thrilled and humbled to have the honor of presenting the next Legend of the Tampa Bay Bucaneers Bulletin Board award to:

I'm an 0-26 Survivor

This is a man who is as well-respected and loved on this board as he is in his real life. A consummate family man, who still has an appreciation for the young ladies, and you can always count on him to be the one in the South End Zone getting all the hugs. Who among you guys can honestly say you haven’t wished to be this man in a Raspberry Jello wrestling match with all his women?

When Survivor is in the house, chaos takes a back seat and rationalization drives. His is the voice of reason and sanity, and if he ever loses his cool with you, you can bet you deserved it! We all listen to him, and with good reason. He has been through quite a bit of personal turmoil in his life, and because of all his life experiences, there is no one more qualified on this board to give advice on any myriad of issues.

Never one to take sides in the catfights, Survivor will, however stand up for what he believes in. There has never been a more fair, unbiased, unprejudiced poster in the history of this board, and there may never be again. For the wonderful man he is, for all he has done for this board and for many of us on it, and for his extreme hotness, I cannot think of a more qualified candidate for Legend of the Tampa Bay Bucaneers Bulletin Board. Congratulations, my friend!

I get to present the next HOF member and long time Legend of this board.

This man is well respected, loved and people inspire to be more like him. He has all the qualities to become a Legend on this board. He has a great sense of humor, always is the voice of reason and people always want to read what he has posted. He is an original.

He is a huge fan of the ladies and we are a big fan of his. We still talk about his long dark hair. He’s got a big heart and you can always count on him giving you an honest answer. He is the one you go to if you need advice. A true friend.

I am very proud to announce the next member of the TBBBB HOF. He is the rock star of our group, he’s the one, the only,

Moozician

THE MOOOOOZZZZ!!

Congrats man, you deserve it. Peace.



PG

Induction speech presented by Betsy

Betsy said

As many of you know, I am a woman of few words, with that.......

When I came to this board, it was the first bulletin board that I had ever been on. In my opinion, its the best.

It is the best because of the people that started it. Not the creators, but the first posters. These people molded this board into what it is today. I've seen the board transform twice in that time and seen a lot of people come and go, with only a few constants. PG is one of those.

He brings out the best and worst in people. He is a gentleman, a smartass, a scholar, a bully, a legend and a prize fisherman. So many descriptions fit him. Some of you I'm sure will fill in your own.....

There are so many things that one could say.... But will leave it with this:

Congratulations PG. In my opinion, you've earned this effortlessly. You are a true legend.



Pewterslimsme

Induction speech presented by Pete Pierson

PetePierson said

Perfume, potpourri, scratch and sniff stickers, and PlugIn Scented Air Fresheners are all things that our sixth honoree is not familiar with.

We however are familiar with his caustic remarks, sharp wit and classic one-liners. You can not click a thread in OT without coming across a remark or a simple sentence or two from him without a least a chuckle. A truly funny guy who’s rarely caught without a clever retort, a poster who can verbally undress you in one post and before you can even reply, he’ll have you laughing out loud with his next comment.

A poster of action; this honoree spearheaded an internet Field Trip across the pond (with great success) as well as took on the arduous of task of organizing these awards. And whether he is discussing the Braves or some other nonsense that no one really cares about, we still have to stop and read his posts because they are indeed that good!


Ladies and Gents, I give you Pewterslimsme

Posted Image





Who would have thunk a bumpkin from West Virginia could achieve so much? Oh who am I kidding? The only reason he was inducted is because he is the one who tallied all the votes and he has some cute kids.




Airborne Eagle

Induction speech presented by Bob

Bob said

I’m honored to present our final inductee of this first HOF class.
He’s another poster who’s achieved such a legendary status, that he’s easily identified by everyone using only his initials.

To his credit:
He’s the BEST debater on internet today. His arguments cut deep and leave his opponents bloody and bewildered. Every take has a point and is actually backed up with facts. He’s more dangerous than an entire AP History class because he actually does his homework before posting on the BB. He educates the ignorant masses with the cold, hard, truth like a catholic school nun on steroids with a dominatrix fetish. He is ruthless in the pursuit of “truthiness”. He served his country valiantly as a member of our armed forces and is a dedicated family man. He also has the largest calf muscles of any poster on the TBBBB. He’s the only man in history to be offered a three-way by Michelle Malkin and Rebecca Hagelin. Years ago he dumped Ann Coulter for his current wife. Ann has never recovered.

On the other hand:
He is an Iggles fan. His choice in previously-owned pants leaves a lot to be desired. He takes the phrase “getting in touch with your feminine side” literally.

However, the positives definitely outweigh the negatives. People, would you please stand and give a warm welcome to... AIRBORNE EAGLE!

Way to go, AE.



CLASS OF 2007

NYBucsFan

Induction speech presented by bucwench

bucwench said

Today, I have the honor of introducing one of my favorite posters on this board as a new member of the Hall of Fame. You may know him as the Hardest Working Poster, or even as the Male Poster of the Year. It’s the one and only NYBucsFan.

With his biting wit, and his ability to put someone in his or her place with a single cut, NY has become one of those guys whose posts we can’t wait to read. Plus, the picture of him with BucFanTexas on his shoulders was an instant classic, though I do think his adorable son looked more at home up there.

Whether it’s helping to organize raids on enemy boards with his partner in crime, Pewterslimsme, or compiling the weekly Idiot of the Week poll (do you guys have ANY idea how much time and energy that takes?), NY puts his all into everything he does. He’s a huge Mets fan, and an even bigger Bucs fan—even making his way down here for the Giants playoff game. Next time, I vow to stick around the South End Zone for however long it takes for him to get his butt down there!

NY, congratulations on your induction into the Hall of Fame--and thanks for making us laugh, for keeping the idiots in check, and for being one hot S.O.B.!



lceman

Induction speech presented by NYBucsFan

NYBucsFan said

When Slim asked me if I would introduce the next inductee, I didn't hesitate to say "Yes." I had just opened a bottle of Double ******* Ale, 7 something percent alcohol, so I was fitting to tie a nice buzz on. I mean, I've done much worse when I was intoxicated, how could I say no now?

He is truly one of the people that makes the TBBBB tick. When you are looking for help and need a serious reply, he's there to help. When you're acting like a dumb ***, he's there to set you straight. When you allegedly need help flooding something, he's right there with the solution. And, as much credit as people like to give two other jerks for their hand in that, this guy deserves...well, screw that. I'm sure the other two enjoy the glory.

As far as "internet friends" (as my wife likes to call them) go, I consider this guy to be one. And if I had to make a top 32,000 list of those I want to meet from here, he would definitely probably be on it. He'd even be in the Top 10. I could pick him up on my yellow ATV, and we'd hit his local bar and have some wings and some Spaten Optimator. Maybe a side of bacon.

By now, you have to know who I mean. And if you don't, you really need to read around more. He is truly an *** to this board... I mean asset. And, as a special gift from me to him to commemorate such a special day, I took him to a Mets game.


Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, I present to you the newest member of TBBBB HOF...

This place is first and foremost a pro football forum dedicated to the
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That's why I started posting here.

Don't be misled by my join date, I'm really kind of recent
to the whole message board dynamic.
The first 4+ years of my tenure here I posted rarely, always
on TD, always a rah-rah type comment for the team.
I had no sig, no shtick. I had no idea what photobucket does
or what the term 'meltdown' meant.

Until the day that BFT pwn3d me on the TD forum.
Yes folks, believe it or not, there was a time when Malloy
himself was a greenhorn poster.
Of course I started frequenting the board more often, and becoming
aware of the entertaining dynamic that exists beyond the football
talk. I became a more intelligent (less casual) fan of the game.
However, I started noticing many many others who, like myself,
were called out by BFT, but unlike myself, handled it the wrong way.
We've seen it recently, haven't we?
Some newb is making lame and redundant posts on TD
and next thing you know they're gone.
Beaten by a foe they had no clue how to fight.
Suddenly made painfully aware of their shortcomings as
football fans, debaters, internet users and in some cases
as human beings.

This place is a pro football forum.
If you post here you should be able to take a hit,
as well as deliver one. Mental sharpness and thick
skin are prerequisites.
That's how it should be.

It gives me great pride to announce,
for induction into the TBBBB HOF, class of 2007,
Ladies and Gentlemen...........a true LEGEND....

I honestly don’t know if I can do this lady justice. She is no holds bar, tells it like she sees it and provides random stream of consciousness threads that bring great humor to mundane, awkward details of everyday life. There are so many things she is famous (or infamous) for, my favorite is the rumors of someone that resembles her heckling Trent Dilfer in a news photo. She’s been known under multiple aliases and has been here near the beginning of existence of the tbbbbb as we know it. It’s truly uncanny how polarizing her online personality can be when in the end she is having a good time laughing at the responses she elicits. She is also the proud mother of the first tbbbb baby and was the recipient of a baby shower hosted by dragonslyr (another tbbbb first!). Her husband may be a Rams fan, but we all know her son will be raised right. She is also the only board member I have ever bought socks with. Congratulations to a true legend,

I am quite honored to induct our 5th person. This poster has always left an impression wherever she goes. One of the most friendly, sarcastic, and honest people I have ever … (not met). She continuously sticks up for her Tarheel nation (of which we do not understand, nor support). She certainly has one of the best pair of legs of any sig on the board, and I would be remiss in stating that she is always a very positive spirit. She was voted the nicest female poster for 2007.

There is no doubt that she continually strives with her fascination over Dans. Both Sileo and Patrick constantly show up in reference to her or from her without a skipped beat. I submit one of her many renditions of the DP sigs ..

Some little known facts:
Her first car was a '76 orange Camaro.
She leads the favorite song thread with 448 posts (as of writing)

With these facts, I am humbled to bestow the honor of our last 2007 TBB HOF member _ Bucwench

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have been given the honor of presenting our first member of the HOF Class of 2008 . I have known this person for quite a few years, and consider her a good friend. This member is a person who is as adept at taking someone on in Team Discussions as easily as in Off Topic.

This member has been involved in many a discussion and has made a definite contribution in each. Not one to mince words, this is a person who means what she says and says what she means.

A traveler.
A family person.
A rock for her family, even as a loved one is gone for an extended time. A true example of how one carries on, not worrying about the little stuff.

It is my distinct honor, and privilege, to present to you:


tampabayfan, affectionately known as tbf....

It is truly an honor to introduce our next inductee to the HOF. I don't know many that have made me laugh as hard as this awesome person, and she flat out knows her football. Ranging from being an incredibly funny person, to the person you turn to with personal issues, err... recipes for... dating advice, err.. well, she's really funny.

Ladies and gentlemen, even Alpha.. it is my absolute honor to intoduce sapp is da man as the next member of the TBB Hall of Fame. Not only is she incredibly deserving of this title, she's really funny.

Welcome, Sappy.... we've been waiting for you!

P.S. - We didn't even have a tree this year, and we're blaming you :mad:

It is with extreme pride and pleasure that I am given the opportunity to introduce this next HOF Inductee to his fellow Class of 2008 TBBBB HOF Inductees, as well as to all fellow TBBBB HOF Members, and to members of the entire TBBBB community.

It is especially pleasing to me…that I also have the distinct honor of delivering the news to this person, right here and right now as he, and all of you, read this.

Much like any top tier first ballot NFL Hall of Fame members, when this person’s name is mentioned for HOF consideration…It’s a no-brainer. Everybody simply says… “Him? ..oh yeah…he’s in”.

This is a cat who has been here since the early days…or as I call them...the dark ages... The days prior to posted rules, when this board was literally the wild west…when it was lawless and vicious. Back when personal attacks sometimes took on a whole new meaning. He stepped up…and volunteered his talents and helped clean this place up…and by doing so…really made a difference in the way that this board operates to this day. In short, his selfless actions here on the TBBB have made him a difference maker. He has literally seen it all…and done it all.

With regard to his posting style…his opinions are very matter of fact and on point with no clutter or filler…whether they be about football or random day to day discussions. You can always be assured that he says what he means and he means what he says…and he retains the unique ability to say it with very few words.

He’s a die hard Bucs fan who chalked up his tenure and made his bones in the old sombrero.

His sense of humor is impeccable. He is one of those few people who “get it”…and he has a unique talent for spotting irony…and bullcrap.

This new HOF Member is also a proud husband and a proud father…and he has my utmost respect for that as well. For those of you here who have had the pleasure of meeting him or speaking to him “in the real world”… you already know… he is good people. His priorities in life are in order…his head is on straight…and he’s a very amiable, approachable person…IF…he likes you. If not, God help you.

Our new TBBBB HOF Inductee is also very generous with his time. Countless times I’ve seen him helping someone out who needed some advice, or assisting someone in the graphics and tech forum in ways that my non-tech UnfrozenCavemanLawer mind cannot even begin to grasp or understand. His techworld knowledge frightens and confuses me.
Sometimes I will be thinking about some computer advice he offered someone here…and it rattles my caveman brain so much that I just want to jump out of my $120,000.00 BMW M6 and head for the hills or something.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the TBBBB…Fellow members of the TBBBB HOF…I am honored to introduce your next TBBBB HOF Member… Formerly known as BucThis, BT, and several other names I am not ever permitted to disclose….please recognize and congratulate my good friend...the truth seeker in open toed sandals… the one and only: Apostle.

The Official 14DARAMS FAQ

Is he as funny in real life as he is on the board?

Yes. Imagine how lucky I am to watch a local karaoke show with him? It is pure heaven and my sides frequently hurt from laughing so hard at him.

Where did he get that sense of sarcasm?

His dad was a man of few words and a jet propulsion engineer. His mom was a woman of plenty words with no patience. Mix 'em together and you get the perfect man, 14.

What's the 14DARAMS all about anyway? Is he that big into computers or what?

It translates, literally, into ONE FOR THE RAMS, but it also fits nicely with the former #14 on the Rams, that jerk Ricky Proehl that made THE CATCH.

I've been the subject of some of his barbs. Is there no end to his cruelty?

No. There is no end. The man has a mind like a steel trap. He may not appear angry at first, but he remembers. He files it away, and when his wrath is summoned, look out. He will devastate you. He is fiercely fiercely loyal, but when you cross him, prepare for the worst.

So how does that work? Crazy Auto7/The Skeptic/MrsIceCreamMan/14dabucs and 14DARAMS in the same house? Talk about an Axis of Evil!

Usually it is calm, a home of hilarity. But if I forget my wifely duties, or don't hang the towels exactly even, or think I am getting to him by smashing a laptop into the sidewalk, things can get messy. He ends all arguments. He doesn't go for the jugular, he drops an atomic bomb. It could be the C-word, it could be my favorite plate, it could be my haughtiness, but all will be irretrievably smashed to bits before I get a word in edgewise.

What's the story of the Blue Towel?

Sappy was kind enough to open her home to us as we journeyed to that little slice of heaven, Gulf Shores. After we left, we made sure to tell her we enjoyed Biblical Knowledge of each other. She freaked. She fretted over her precious blue towels, not knowing which one had been soiled. The secret is, no towels were wrecked, but I had to brush my teeth first thing the next morning.

Are there any redeemable qualities in the man?

Not to get all mushy, but I really wish each of you could have the pleasure I do of knowing 14 and seeing him in action. He was unbelievably kind to his mother and is a perfect dad. He grills like no other and can fix anything on a car. He's the best kind of person because he shows you how much he cares through all the little things he does.

It's nice to see him get the recognition he so richly deserves, especially in such a great community...

Here's to you, 14DARAMS, BULLSHARK, Mark, Pookie, etc... etc...

YOU ROCK and WELCOME TO THE HALL!

Once again I have been tapped to offer up some words of introduction for yet another new Inductee into the TBBBB Hall Of Fame…and a man who I consider a great, longtime pal….that is…of course…only when my other great pals won’t return my phone calls. But I digress.

When I was first asked by Poot to make this introduction….I of course jumped at that chance…although that’s primarily because Poot’s first email stated the inductee was ME again. It wasn’t meant to be though… Poot laughed…and then when he told me who this new inductee was…I laughed too…because quite frankly…I never thought he had a shot in hell.

So….this last Tuesday night….I sat down to reflect upon past fond memories of this wonderful person……with particular emphasis highlighting what he’s brought to our beloved TBBBB. Ironically..it was at that very point in time…I realized I would have to make stuff up.

Be that as it may….and being serious for just one moment folks…This new HOF Member…this pal of mine since the infancy of this board… REALLY should have been a member of the TBBBB HOF years ago….because quite frankly……..he’s OLD as Hell….even older than me….so we felt that he needed to get inducted fast. That…and he threatened to stop sending the HOF Members checks if he didn’t make the cut this year.

Come to think of it…I really have no earthly idea how this cat made the vote… I mean…NOBODY reads his posts……..and he’s seen here less Mod IV….but I shouldn’t give him a hard time for that… he’s had his share of medical issues…and that’s kept him off our board a lot. Nothing serious mind you.. it’s all elective surgery. His last procedure was his charisma bypass…which was obviously a complete success. He’s so lonely he actually has organs removed just so someone will talk to him.

Yet…with all that said…I dig this cat. When he posts…he brings it. And he usually peppers his posts with more references and sub references than Dennis Miller on a full-blown rant. He hits hard when he wants too…and he does it with few words…which on a message board….is the way it ought to be.

You sir…have been a good friend and confidant to me through good times and bad…going all the way back to the original REDZONE…back in the days when we were on the old Excite Clubs….which seems like a hundred years ago…and considering our ages…it may very well be true. You my friend have done so much behind the scenes for this board…and others…and for that you’ve always had my respect and admiration. Now if you could just get people to respond to your posts and threads….so others here would know what I’m talking about.

Folks…it is with great pride & fondness… and it’s an absolute pleasure… to introduce to this board, the members of the TBBBB HOF, as well as his fellow Class of 2009 Inductees…my old friend…known here simply as …… “McFan”. Congratulations buddy…

I get the pleasure of introducing the next member of the TBBBB HOF. This person has been here since the beginning and has made his name known since 2000. I have the great pleasure of meeting this poster on several occasions.

This poster has made posts that are full of humor and intelligence. Many may not know his posts since he doesn’t seem to participate as he once has. It’s a shame that many may not know of his contributions to this board. I hope one day he can come back and people can rediscover why he has made it to the HOF.

Everyone will know him by his one of the biggest yearly events that happened between 2001 and 2005. These events took many hours of effort on his part and he pulled it off without a hitch. It was not just amazing that it brought many members of the board together, but also supported kids in the Tampa Bay area. That makes him a HOF type poster in itself. Despite any drama that may be going on, these tailgates could bring everyone together to help support the All Children’s Hospital. It’s a good reason why many posters on the board are as close as they are.

You would instantly know it was him just by his tall statue. You would also know him by warm personality and friendly nature. Now you can know him as a HOF member.

Congratulations to BrandonBucFan on making the TBBBB HOF.

What do you say for the guy who tosses out the “took him in ‘87” or who reminds us who passed in a birthday thread. You really say a lot actually.

He presents solid facts, and challenges us all for the things that we say and do. He makes sure to remind us that this thing called football is JUST a game, and has great quick comebacks when threads get out of control. He joined just over ten years ago, and has kept the TBBB in check ever since .. never waning, and never having to re-invent himself.

Odd fact: He has only started 35 threads .. something to think about since some of us can do that in a day and not even thing twice about it.

He coined the classic phrase “Rap Sucks” and now should be required for any legitimate poll that is started.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my proud honor to bestow to you one of the Hall of Fame members :

GRIM REAPER
