    Started posting when i was training for a triathlon. Initials with Ironman was taken but if i added a 1 at the end it worked. Then because a bunch of people got banned over the years on O-live (see various dog playing poker type Monikers) i always felt it was worthy of keeping beings i actually made it out of there never being banned. At least to this point. The only thing that has changed has been various Underdog photos that i have used over the years.

    It’s cool. High school was tough and awkward for everyone. Just admit you gave yourself that name as a way to be cool and fit in, but it actually backfired.

    You gonna admit that your name has nothing to do with Portland basketball or Bay-area baseball, but is entirely about smoking fat blunts?

    It’s a combination of all of it!

    Nah, to most, that would be a much cooler reason for my name than the real reason.

    People always say that, but I had a BLAST in high school. Homecoming King...... football, basketball, track. Banged girls, the whole experience I look back on fondly. Mostly picking on and bullying computer gee.........errrrrrr........... maybe that’s why I am here on S2. I’m being punished and forced to spend time with you Dungeon Masters.

    Anyone that believes the guy that works in a broadcast truck was not the president of the AV club - I have a bridge to sell you.

    I love it. I will admit I took the class to learn how to put the film in the projector for class movies. That way I could get out of class to go get the projector and mess around. That was the extent of my experience before I went back to college for TV production. I was just a crazy ass hoops fan. I told Sly before, we can work something out and have one of you geeks come sit with me in the truck DURING the game to get a view of what we do.

    I'm pretty sure he meant when he went to high school, not what you are currently doing on the weekends.

    No No No.... You are low mod on the totem pole. You need to work at being a mod during games. This needs to be a forum member that can actually give an honest account of what happened in the truck.

    Count me in too. I'd love to see the inner workings.

    Oh, and to tell Hurd to talk about Meyers as much as he can during the broadcast. An angry audience stays tuned in longer, so...

    I was speaking in generic terms, FAMS!

    I had great high school years.
