What the heck does your Screenname mean?
 
What DOES your screenname mean? ...and why did you chose it?

Examples:
Viqsi
Double Shift Lasse
Roadman
Skraut
Samkow
Pluckfur
Oz
Anteater90
Feicht
Timeless Winter
Renion
kshymkiw
Citrigno
Fro
Crede777
Ludicrous Speed
Cydawg
Captain Cornelius

etc etc etc

I know the story behind a few.

Mine's pretty obvious.

(And no Matthew, I don't like jackets)

anteater90 05-23-2010 12:35 PM

college mascot and year of graduation.

Skraut 05-23-2010 01:22 PM

Fell for answering this once, not going to do it again ;)

If you really want to know, use the boards search function.

A ridiculous and ignorant Buckeye Fan writing into the Ray Stein's mailbox about how he couldn't pronounce any of the players names in the NHL and about how nobody in Columbus cares about the CBJ.

cydawg 05-23-2010 01:36 PM

It's been my nickname since high school.

Wait, you're not actually him? :shakehead

CBJSprague24 05-23-2010 01:52 PM

Was originally JSprague24, which is my name on another board. Then the little lightbulb came on one day and I realized that I could add "CB" to my username & have CBJ in my username.

CBJSprague24

edit- And the "24" is a reference to Jeff Gordon. That has nothing to do with hockey, but I had the username before I was a hockey fan.

astall is a mashup of my first and last name that I use for pretty much all my screen names. The 35 has multiple meanings, one it's for Mike Mussina, my favorite baseball player when I was growing up. It is also conveniently the two numbers of my favorite hockey players growing up, Scott Stevens (Capitals #3) and Rod Langway (Capitals #5).

The Board Search function is useless.

One day over a beer I recall you telling me that it had something to do with college and a scrotum. Please remind us.

Anteater... UC Irvine?
(Listed as one of the Top Ten Worst Mascots on one website)

Feicht 05-23-2010 03:36 PM

It is my name :D

It's a commentary on the plight of the endangered ocelot. If they don't Win Now in their fight against what threatens them, then we will lose them for good.






Do I need the :sarcasm: ?

plong123 05-23-2010 04:10 PM

Combination of my name, and my lucky hockey number. I explained it in fuller detail in the last "meet your forum members" thread.

Ok, ok.

Time for my real answer: "Robert" was taken.

CapnCornelius 05-23-2010 05:22 PM

A cookie to anyone who can figure it out. One of the smart Jackets fans around here surely can piece it together.

Viqsi 05-23-2010 05:25 PM

If you know how to pronounce it, you know what it means.

I'm pretty sure I know. It's a bit out of date, though. :)

The classics never go out of fashion.

I've always hoped it was a Rudolph reference, as in Yukon Cornelius.

Double-Shift Lassť 05-23-2010 05:43 PM

This board's old friend jacketracket (who was gone but since reappeared with a new username which escapes me right now) was on hand for the christening of mine, although he did not know it. Anway...

Sitting in my seats behind home bench for a game while Dave King was coach. Lasse Pirjeta had scored twice and the Jackets were clear (somehow) for the win, so, hoping to see a hatty, I began to exhort Kinger to...

At which time I added something about getting one at Starbucks and really enjoying it.

dru 05-23-2010 05:55 PM

It's my real name. Named after my grandfather's internet user name.

BJfan 05-23-2010 06:36 PM

I like the blue jackets too ;)

Timeless Winter 05-23-2010 06:50 PM


The Four Seven 05-23-2010 06:54 PM

Mine's just an evolution of my original user name, the incredibly original Jackets47. 47 being my favorite number and the number I always choose for my own jersey number.
