IN THE POST TEN THOUSAND! IN THE POST TEN THOUSAAAAAAAAAAND!
I said in the RDT that I was apprehensive about this. Kinda worried about not messing this up and most of all, being serious. SO I'M NOT GONNA!
No joke, I've been thinking about making this a Ke$ha gif megapost just to piss APS off, but I guess I'll make it about me instead. If I have to...
I found this site way back when I first started to get into the stage that I didn't go "Awe, g'damnit, why! Who would watch this over Pokemon?!" when Saturday morning cartoons shifted to college football games. I mean, I still kinda do that, but to a much lesser degree. Such is the life of a Vols fan. *rimshot* But seriously, I was 16.
Anyway, I mainly wanted to know what the Titans would do considering they were widely speculated to pick a QB, so I looked at the mocks and kept up with things. Then finally I decided that I loved watching football and wanted an outlet to talk about it. Thankfully I've been using vB boards since I was 14, so I was able to dive in headfirst. Haven't looked back since.
My first compliment came from Geo. My first post was telling Sniper he said something stupid. My first argument was with Njx and Chris over VY being better than Cutler...and in the end, we all lost :'(. And I said "Thank ya kindly," a lot. Just a whole lot of fun since, so thanks to everyone for making my time here time well spent!
TO THE SHOUTOUTS!
First one goes to Drew! He's been my first friend here and is forever the fischbowl to my SuperMcgee. I've met him in real life, and even better, we're facebook friends! I love ya buddy, and still can't wait til we open our own website and/or radio show!
Doughie-san, my sig betting, forum mocking, partner in justice. I remember when you first started posting, and I thought, "This guy won't last a week." I even made a bet with Drew about. But you did! So I now I owe Drew money. But seriously, I could tell you'd be a cool, fun guy who could talk football with the best, and ya haven't proven me wrong! I want people to know you're even funnier in real life than you are on here, as if that were possible. Lets Halo it up soon!
And to all the other Titans posters, Pit bull #53, stephenson, TitansCJftw, aNYtitan, smittyjs, OzTitan, RufucMcDaniel, RufusMcDaniel's avatars, Complex, MicktheGreat, thanks for making up one of the coolest fanbases on here. You all already know how much I respect each and every one of ya'll, and you guys are the biggest reason I've stuck around here as long as I have.
Brody, if there were any justice in this world, I'd be Jensen Ackles and you'd be Misha Collins. We'd travel the country fighting pagan gods and demons, AND WIN!
Vidae, WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE TITANS POSTER?!
Geo, come back so we can make fun of the Texans again.
Commie, I'm sorry I make fun of Schaub getting hurt, but in my defense, c'mon! C'mon!
APS, I didn't like you at first…but now I don’t and love you the most!
Unseen, come back! Right now!
CC.SD, I like you, and we need more inside jokes. I'm really sorry the Titans were stupid faces and hurt Antonio Gates's toe. Like you, he's the best! <333
Tacks, Chris Relolf.
JBoogs, you owe me something for doing all those transcribings! Also, I'm not sure if I'm facebook friends with you, but you are my one and only YouTube subscriber, so thank you.
DG, you are a ginger, but I would still approve of you marrying my cousin. But that's mostly because I get reddish spots in my beard, which means my gene pool has probably already been tainted. <333
Papa CJ, I already have a dad, but if I had a creepy uncle that I would have trouble falling asleep over at their house, I'd like to think it'd be you.
YFS, if you're reading this, you once said taking two different types of drugs at once would mess people up. Well, I take both of them (BY PRESCRIPTION), SO I BEAT YA! FACE!
Metsox, we have the same birthday and love for Sophia Vergara! And go easy on Vikes, man
Vikes, we're facebook friends! Best of luck to you band, and don't make it so easy for Metsox, man.
Caddy, you are Australian and aren't dead. You win!
Njx9, you are not irrelevant and are one of my absolute favorite posters on this site. You single handedly made me figure out what non sequitur was and how to spot it. I wish I disagreed with you enough to argue with you, cause it's a ton of fun. I'll settle for watching you intellectually own other guys instead.
Prock, cut it out with that p-rock crud and sex up the Europeans ladies.
Kal, I'm sorry you lost in flag football. Just draft Drew and his QB'ing skills will put you over the top. Y'know, the Colts drafted him in a forum mock...with the second to last pick...with me GMing them.
Until then, take solace in Emma, and screw everyone else who thinks she ain't pretty.
SARF, I don't know ya well enough, but Njx tells me you're an elderly emo of the Hispanic variety who will do things for money in the alley behind the Burger King in West Hollywood. But I do know you're a Raiders fan, so may the ghost of Al be with you and yours this season.
BF51, another one of my faves. You get annoyed easily and are cranky, and bash the silly FSU homers. But most of all, I like that a college Professor has a "Deal With It" and "Treat Yo Self" gif sigs. Being a character is fun.
BOE, I don't understand a lot of what you say, but I know enough to say **** Bryan Bulaga and yay Eric Burrrrrry!
Paul, Oasis rocks and so do you. I wish Bantx was more like you.
Bantx, thanks for running leagues for me and McGee to run through!
BeerBaron, as good of a poster as you are, I know you can be better. Stop wasting your time and your intellect by attacking low hanging fruit. We all know dropping passes is unacceptable and that Tim Tebow can't pass. Now go show us what ya got and open our eyes wider than you already do!
Forenci, you once told me you loved me. I want you to know that I love you too.
ImBrotherCain, I don't know what the SWDC Mafia is. What is it?
BBD, I count you as one who's arguably taught me the most about pro football in general. I'd very much like more BBD's NFL Truths type threads.
Brent, you interact with Drew on facebook sometimes, and I think about friending you. But then I panic and don't. But now the Aggies are in the SEC! Yay!
GF1080, hey cancer! Scoreeeeeboooooooooooooard!
Scottyboy, thanks for Britt and McCourty! They're just great!
Chris(sabf), you inspired me to chillax, showed me how to love again, and taught me how to dance before the big school social. Thank you. AND POST MORE!
LL, I enjoy every friggin post you make. You rock.
EE, my fellow Brayzen one. Become a Vols fans already. The Ke$ha says it gets better
*** Ork Wang, even though Hisagi is way cooler than Renji is, you're like the Hisagi to my Renji.
Diabsoule, thanks for keeping the college forum going with your info and insight.
Hines, **** you for always agreeing to sig bet with me after I demand that you do, but I love you anyway.
Jvig, SOAD isn't terrrible. Don't believe the hype.
killswitch, you aren't halfbad for a Colts fan, but if the Colts get Luck, I'll use my Inception abilities to inspire Bill Polian to unretire and return to your FO! FEAR ME!
Deep, I hope all your health issues never prevent you from achieving all your goals. You deserve the best.
CCB, you're not bad for a Ravens fan.
Ravens1991, you're not bad for a Ravens fan either!
Neil, I wish you the best of Luck.
Bengals78, please come back.
Yoda, I don't understand much of what you say either, but you love the Rams and I hope they get better.
Fenikz, you just inspired me to google Keeley. Therefore, you just gave a boner. Go you. Thanks for letting me in on SECFF this year too. It was too much fun! And if you ever, you know, maybe wanna make me a Ke$ha sig, that would be wonderful! ;)
D30, DECASTRO WAS MINE DAMMIT!
STRIP, probably the biggest honor I've had here was writing up your HOF induction. Thanks for being among the best of the best.
Marshallb, *jiggle jiggle*.
VV, as a favor to you, I will kidnap Hilary Swank so you can console Selena Gomez.
BK, I’m STILL indebted to you for the sigs you’ve made for me. You’re the man!
Raiderz, I get so happy when a long timer suddenly becomes an uberposter! Go you!
Damix, I still lead your IRC stats in most shoutings, don’t I?
McGee, we rule at FF.
Fischbowl, I sometimes day dream that I’m being interviewed on a talkshow. Well, the talkshow host asked me about the Occupy camps, and I told them that they should move because my friend Fisch is annoyed by them and their ornery female police officers. The audience applauded.
D-Unit, one of my first interactions with you was you asking if Glenn Dorsey could play the 5-tech in a 3-4. And I said you might as well put him at NT. And you thought it was a good idea. Shame on you for humoring me!
WMD, if I were as half as funny as you, I’d be really funny.
Scotty D, may the Schwartz be with you.
Splat, your grammar has gotten so much better! Proud of youuuuuuuu!
Goosemahn, I’m glad you never got the Swine Flu!
RaiderNation, you are a strong, independent black man. Stop trying to hide from who you are.
EATW, thank you so much for posting that Trampled by Turtles song way back when. It’s now my go-to sing-a-long when I’m driving!
Philliez, my Ke$ha loving soul brother.
Hurricanes, thank you for Britt and McCourty too! And if it means anything, I think the Jets get the last WC spot instead of the Bengals and Tits. :(
The_Dude, why couldn't I have a teacher like you in school?
TheBoyWonder, how do you not have 1,000 posts yet?! But thank you for putting me over a milli. You're not bad for a Ravens fan either, and good luck to ya'll in the Cincy game! ;)
ATL, no one rants like you do, and while I think Matt Ryan is hella overrated and the Julia trade wasn't worth it, I'll take losing your rants and me being wrong about them in exchange for your football happiness.
Jensen, I like to read your posts in a Keanu Reeves-y, surfer voice. You should say "tubular" more often too!
OSUGiants, I remember the Hot Chick Draft where I had to vouch for ya to get in because everyone thought you were a draft killer. Thanks for coming through and becoming the contributor you are today!
WinslowBodden, get a name change! :D
Jayce, start tipping!
And thanks to Scott Wright, for providing this site we call home free of charge.
And to everyone else, please know I couldn’t get to everybody, but if you’ll post, I’ll be sure to add ya. I’m sure I missed more than a few people that’ll make me turn white when I realize I missed them. This list is in no way in order, and I definitely planned on people but then skipped then when I got inspired for someone else’s entry, so I’m sure someone got skipped because of that.
Either way, thanks again to everyone, and I’m looking forward to bumping this again at 20,000! :D
Oh, and DON'T ACT LIKE YOU'RE NOT IMPRESSED!
