Phew! Thank goodness.

Thank you.

On a serious note, I actually almost didn't use the name opus due to the penguin comic.

I'm just really impressed you remember your middle school bus number. I think mine had 2 digits and there might have been a 5 in it, but I really have no idea.

I had to walk to school barefoot on a gravel road, in cold and snowy weather.

And it was uphill...both ways.

I actually had to fight Klingons on my way to school, but whatever, I'm sure it was hard for you too.

EDIT: Eh, I'll rethink that first joke.

my name is Sheila, but my husband (who is from Philly) pronounces my name Shilla. So he calls me Shil. The 27 is for Hexy

When Bernie Parent jumped to the WHA, he signed with the Miami Screaming Eagles. Because of finances and arena issues, the team relocated almost immediately to Philadelphia (Blazers). Parent, who prior to this played for the Flyers, enjoyed Philadelphia but had contract issues with the Blazers and refused to play for them. He didn't want to return to Toronto, who held his NHL rights, so the Leafs traded him back to the Flyers because Parent preferred to stay in Philadelphia and the Flyers wanted Parent back. So, it can be said that MiamiScreamingEagles helped the Flyers win two Cups.

Great story! I've never heard the story behind your name. Not quite sure why I haven't, but it's a good one!

It's my hip hop moniker.










And I don't even like hip hop that much.

mine's an NFG song (yeah, I'm into pop punk). It's not even a favorite song or anything. I could just never come up with one I liked enough so it was kinda like "point with my eyes closed." If i ever figure anything better out, i'll change it...

Agree with CG on this one. I should not be surprised at such an awesome origin to your name!
