A rant to the regular members

Dang, Halo... callin\' brothers out...

I\'m here. The last month or so my \'being here\' has consisted of checking the board once or twice a day for major trades or camp injuries, movement to San Antonio or Picayune, the state of Louisiana being sold to Mexico, etc...

Speaking of movement and purchasing, the wife and I are in the process of buying our first home (guess that means she\'s planning on sticking around). Just had the inspection yesterday. That explains quite a bit of my MIA status. Also, I teach high school (seniors no less), so this time of year I\'ve got the ole cattle prod out trying to push them across that stage (metaphorically speaking, of course).

My affection for this site and its members is well documented. Although, the warm-fuzzies previously directed toward Gumbo have withered considerably after being omitted from the original call-out. I will persevere. If I can forgive John Forcade, I can love Billy again.

Here\'s to hoping that there will be much more to discuss in the upcoming weeks. As long as we\'re catching up here, my opinion on the current issues of the board are as follows:

Pease is the second-coming. He will single-handedly bring our defense back to prominence.

McKenzie, if acquired, will be a huge let-down. This is just a gut feeling, but I\'d take it to the bank.

Sullivan will puke up any extra weight he\'s gained, ala John Pease.

Speaking of His Holiness, Rick Venturi will go missing by week three, and no one will question the mysterious blood-stains on a certain D-line coach\'s sneakers.

The Saints will not leave NO. If they do, I will not follow them. Yep. Can\'t do it.

The wife gave me permission (shaddup!) to purchase NFL ticket this season. I wept for a full hour.

I\'m sure there\'s more to say, but most of you have stopped reading by this point. Gonna go have another cup of joe and enjoy a morn with no students.

A rant to the regular members

(1) I\'m touched that I get to count as a regular. I\'ve been reading this board regularly for a long time now, but it was only last season that I felt the call. You\'ve all done a great job of making a guy feel simultaneously welcome... (cough) feel the need... for... granola (cough)... and beat up on... uh, I mean \"challenged\".

(2) Whowatches, I\'ve been wondering what the .02 stands for at the end of your posts? Is that your permanent Blood Alcohol?

(3) I agree that some of the debates get tiring, but I have my favorites that I\'d be happy to discuss over and over again...

(4) Perhaps as a part of our \"call out\" here (good to see you again Halo), we could simply discuss who has the best Avatar. My vote goes to BnB, whose Avatar still haunts my dreams... yikes, where the heck did you find that thing?!

(5) I think the use of elipses (...) gets more than its fair share of use on this board. I was starting to wonder if the art of sentences has been lost to the masses, and, thankfully, I have been proven right!

(6) Numbering your paragraphs so as to look like you are making smart points is... overrated. Ok, if you\'re not laughing, at least chuckling, I\'m gonna beat you with my eyes!!!

.02= 2 cents, I think.

Scanned from an article in ESPN Magazine from back in 2000-2001, from an article called \"QB Killaz\" that featured stories on Urlacher, Abraham (from the Jets), and Howard. You should have seen the pic that had writing all over it, it was alot more scary than this one.

Cassady37 here and somewhat accounted for. I hope this isn\'t an attempt to brand all lurkers with that big, red \"L\" for all to see! I just read and enjoy most posts and try not to respond too much until the season starts. I hate getting addicted to all-out arguements this early in the off-season, it\'s not good for my stress level and my doctor would restrict me from the internet!

A rant to the regular members

If Gator is \"studing\" then I want some of what he\'s been drinking! LOL

Sorry to all. I\'ve been (and in fact I still am) in Colorado Springs. Been doing an install for KKCS...at the foot of Pikes Peak, and it\'s absolutely stunning! I\'ve been logging on this week as time permits, but I haven\'t had much time to do much else other than make sure Whodat wasn\'t starting a fight! LMAO

I\'ll be back in Dallas next Tuesday and back to picking on Whodat for being a negative person. I know you can\'t wait...neither can I!

I don\'t post much, so in that way I may not qualify as a regular. But the amount of time I am logged it and lurking, makes me more regular than grandma on Metamucil.

BnB\'s answer is correct anytime before 5:30 pm; yours is correct anytime after.
