I just hate confusing myself. It is easy enough on occasion.

Piratefan13, I'll forever think of Bill Mazeroski anytime I see your posts. :)

Ollie,

I am in the process of finding a better Maz picture... the Bucco logo could be temporary.

To prevent a person from picking an avatar that dominates the webspace. Large avatars are kinda obnoxious.

Yah you mean those avatars with bouncing elephants... Ahhh I will admit, I liked the bouncing elephant, I would constantly watch to see if the elephant would land awkwardly, just once. He never did, so perfect in his approach, landing, and subsequent sprining forth. Ahh much can be learned from the elephant, his fundamentals were sound, his production was flawless, and a tireless work ethic could single-trunkedly change the atmosphere of a club.

Thank you. You provided me with a much needed laugh before my Evidence exam tonight. :D

Thank you for your restraint, lol.

I decided to shorten my name and password. It's quicker for me to type Ollie. When I log on at work my user name appears but I can't get it to do so here at home. I am worthless with computers (am wondering if I can manage red fonts here.)

I seriously considered Brian Boehringer as my name when I first joined this outfit, but I was having a love affair with Oliver Perez. I am so disappointed in his last outing. I'm glad the Bucs won but Ollie has serious control problems. I wonder if the delay of the starting time had a negative impact on my man.


I was thinking of using Bruce Aven as my name.


Brant Brown would have been even better, lol.

Thanks for the replies; several name changes. I have used this thread to get the posters straight.

And Argentum - I googled that term, learned that it was indeed Latin for "silver," and knew who you were.
