Just remembering that it was about 2 years ago that I first posted on the ESPN troll board (actually, late May), joining what would become the group led by FWC that discovered PHG's site on the Rivals network shortly thereafter.

I can't believe it's only been 2 years. Seems like ages.

:gulp:

Memories...

OK, that's enough. Well, considering that most of us our on here just about every day talking to each other, it does seem like it was quite awhile ago. We seem to be missing a couple people though (Rio, Dagobeef, I_ate_canada...) mooch is still around every once in a while. I remember that I only found the troll board because we had just gotten internet access at work and I got bored at lunch and decided to find some info about the Sox. I'm sure glad I did. :smile:

I missed that migration by about 5 months,when I bought my first computer.In that time I have actually learned how to use one somewhat.

Actually, that was/is ihatethecubs. I have no artistic talent... I'm just here to be a smart*ss. Or a dumb*ss, whichever way you want to look at it... :cool:

Also, in response to my first post, I'm pretty sure Voodoo aka JustJim was one of the original converts. Sorry, my memory is getting bad in my old age. :D:

Wow, two years and 100,000 post. I guess that means roughly 1% of them belong to me, while 10% go Jerry_Manuel and his one liners.

I guess my 2 year mark would be sometime in August, when I headed back to school and found the old Rivals site. Didn't post much there, but followed the site to its new an current home.

Actually, if we counted all the posts from the rivals site the post count would be much higher.

You would have to add the posts from the first version of this board also,they are not included in the present total.

So in other words we are totally underrating ourselves huh? What about any posts that were removed? We are probably closer to 200,000. Not bad for 2 years work.

I too was a recruit from the old ESPN troll board. I'm much more an in season poster because over the summers at work I can be near a computer much more often rather than stuck in a class or lab up at school. I know I'm not one of the big name posters that draw lots of ire and/or praise, but I'm still glad to be part of the community. Here's to this site, the posters, and especially all those that run it and get that nifty "WSI Staff" logo on their posts.

I salute you all! :gulp:
