    Explain oh sage ones, why do you have the avatar you do seen in your posts?

    Mine, the pic represents I play golf and that putt was for birdie caught just as it fell into the cup.  Success for a golfer!!

    You?

    [/QUOTE]

    Took this picture about 4-5 years ago or so. Our dog was at the bottom of the steps giving me her typical feisty "you want some of this?" look. Mouth slightly open as if about to say something smart elek, or to tell me "yes my child, I have beckoned, now feed me meat and chicken". The eyes were glowing in the original, but I photoshopped it to make it glow more because I thought it was funny. She died 1/19/10 aged 13 years. This avatar is a tribute, plus it fits my posting style. Anything posted with this picture next to it has it's humor/candor/impertanence increased by at least a factor of 2-3X. Great thread idea bill!

    Bill, is that golf course in VA or MD?

    My avatar is simple: each logo represents each team that plays for the greatest city in the world.  I'm actually a diehard Bruins and Sox fan, as well as a casual fan of the C's but I don't comment on the other boards as much as I do here.   

    I make it up to Boston semi annually to catch a Sox (summer) and Bruins(winter) game, and always do when either are playing in the DC area.  I haven't been to a C's game in about 5 years though.

    [/QUOTE] Actually, a course in Myrtle Beach, SC, if I recall the course is called River Hills.  In MD, I am a member of the Queenstown Harbour Golf Links, you know it?


    [/QUOTE]

    I played queenstown. Nice track / windy. I play in N MB alot. Barefoot course mostly. Localy, i live in NVA so I play ECC and Dominion Valley. I snuck in just shy of 100 rounds in last year. In fact i am playing27 tomorrow. Oh, the avatr is my SB ticket from last year. Great time!

    My avatar is based on Dream Theater's "Majesty" logo...i drew it in MSPaint back in high school (1996).  Been shuttling it between phones/computers/etc ever since.  Majesty is their old band name....hence the instrumental 'Ytse Jam'....

    Because these 2 guys have been under-appreciated during their tenures at times.....  Branch was always a favorite of mine, and shouldn't have gone away....

    And here he is saying to Jets fans    'oooooo, nooooooo' - 'P...A...T...S.... Pats! Pats! Pats!"  At least that's what I've been told.

    Myrtle Beach is prime location for some golf.  I've golfed at Sandpiper Bay and Barefoot Resort.  Both are very nice courses.  I've never golfed in MD, however, so I'm not familiar with Queenstown.  I'm assuming you golf regularly; what is your handicap?

    Irish- My guess is that you have those tacky team logos on every car that you own. Is that right?

    Yupp!  You better believe it Leona! I also have a few of my VT Hokies decals.  I'd say it's the best damn looking SUV east of the Mississppi River, given the championship vibe that it gives off.

    You're a Wahoo fan, mojo? Say it ain't so!!

     

    In all seriousness, UVA always has an elite baseball program.  A few of my teammates that I played with during AAU baseball are now on the team.  Pretty cool stuff.

    Sorry to hear about the passing of your buddy, examiner.  It's strange how we humans can get so attached to an animal, isn't it?  It's very cliche but it's so true that people never understand until they have one of their own.

    Awesome/hilarious pic, btw.

    That's awesome, man.  What part of NOVA are you from? I'm from the Manassas/Prince William area. I golf regularly up here over at Bristow Manor, Stonewall, Broad Run, Bowling Green, and a few others.  Do you like Dominion Valley?  I never golfed there.  Isn't it private?

    I've also played Barefoot down in MB.  Small world!

    You really care Leon? I'm touched.  Is it the green and white that piqued your interest?  It's not Jets "gear" I promise you!  OK, it's Easter Road in Leith (Edinburgh), Scotland, home of Hibernian F.C.  The Hibs play in the Scottish Premier League.  The picture you see at the stadium, it is the Famous Five, all associated with Hibernian's impressive run of league championships long ago.  Think of it as Gastineau, Klecko, Freeman McNeil, Al Toon and whomever else conjures us good ol' Jets memories for you.   I grew up a few minutes from the football stadium.    

    [/QUOTE]

    This brings back some great memories for me. From the late 80s through the mid-90s, we lived in the UK as expats. One of my saleswomen, Billie Neilands (sp?), was from Edinburgh and introduced me to the Proclaimers. I became a huge fan of their music. By coincidence, I was at a Hibs football game in 1990 or 1991, which was the first soccer game I ever saw live. I guess those were tough times for the football club but the fans had banded together to resist some kind of bankruptcy or merger. Well, during the game the group of fans around me broke spontaneously into a rendition of "Sunshine on Leith." I knew every word of that song, and sang and drank along with the crowd. Had a great time but embarassed the heck out of my wife.

    I was a bigger Sox/Celtics fan growing up, but at some point the Pats reeled me in. They are my favorites...
