I went to school with the brother of the guy that designed the Banana Slug logo. They love their Slug Med.

My name in the chat usually changes, and is reflective of celebration or misery, depending on how the game goes. I may also change the "24" to another number based upon a player who's impressing me at that point.

I think if you wanted the cookie, hints and talking around it wasn't the best option. I mean, you come off as clever, but you get no cookie.

Well, then, fine. I've got plenty of my OWN cookies, and NOW I'm not sharing them with anybody!

I'd like to see another age-range poll on here soon, but not now. Now is too soon, we need to wait until we're truly desperate for things to talk about.

Fine since people are so lazy and won't search for it.

Skraut is ancient Gaelic for "One who posts pictures of man with chalice"

I did search for it, with no luck. I think you're making things up. I don't like being toyed with in this manner.

sorry, Pictures is the "modern" translation.

A more accurate translation is "one who makes cave drawings of man with chalice."

Mine refers to the professional soccer team that existed in Columbus before MLS. I played for them and was #22 (I was also #22 in college so it covers both actually).

I almost went with Bourne14 but since I'm a CBJ fan I figured I should drop the classic Islanders references....

I'm pretty sure I don't need to elaborate.

Yes. Cant say I recall Jim very much but do recall him. I was only on the team the first year. Work (real job) travel and the fact that all my vacation time was spent traveling to games killed it for me. Not that I was a major player or anything. it was fun.

He was the player/coach, IIRC.
