Default Ahoy-Hoy

Hi, I'm Steve and I like sports. Currently splitting my time between two very cold locations, helping out with a few local newspapers. I'm a major Mets/Knicks fan but I follow every sport pretty groin-grabbingly religiously. Hope I fit in here and whatnot.

So what happened to this place? Seems to be pretty flippin quiet, but you've got a bunch of members and a lot of 'em have thousands of posts. Did I miss out on a massive bird flu outbreak or some such catastrophe? What's the deal?

I do look forward to posting with all the folks who are still here and maybe my tremendous insight will attract a massive horde of new members and revitalize the communtiy. Or maybe I'll make five posts and never come back.

I'm gonna play it by ear.

Mets fan certainly a negative, but the Franklin Delano Bluth avatar is fantastic.

G.O.B.: Franklin said some things Whitey wasn’t ready to hear.

Michael: G.O.B., weren’t you also mercilessly beaten outside of a club in Torrance for that act?

G.O.B.: He also said some things that African-American-y wasn’t ready to hear either.

I love when GOB bleaches him and he delivers a line with a British accent.

Yes, yes. But, more importantly, what's your beef with the Mets? When exactly did we go from lovable losers to unbearable assclowns? I'm seriously upset that happened. We need to bring in a Benny Agbayani type guy and cut our payroll by about fifty million and then maybe the sports community at large will stop hating us. I hate being hated. How can anyone hate such an incompetent organization?!

I'm not here to talk about the past. I'm here to be positive about this subject (SCMB).

Welcome to the site, Steve. :wavey:

I'm sure you'll fit in just fine. Fellas, should we start the hazing now or wait?
