    Welcome Reid! What a great use for this thread. You've provided more information than usually goes into our Announce Yourself thread.

    Expect a visit from a very nice -- but grumpy -- gentleman from Columbus, OH, who will ask you to do a couple of locational things.

    Hope you enjoy the site!

    Martin! Also a fan of beer, Scotch, a cuppa ... and ... most especially: Greyhounds. I also shouted myself hoarse for Vic Halom when he played at Luton in the mid-1970s. He was right up there with Mark Hughes in terms of tough to knock off the ball. I didn't see a CB who could overpower him either.

    Good stuff!

    Whoa! I didn't think I'd ever witness anyone outside the pacific northwest express their fandom for the M's. This is exciting! Although the M's do have a large Japanese fan base (which as it turns out you are, in fact, from Japan). So when did you start following the team?

    Hold the presses...Christian, UGA football and GTech basketball? :shock: I hate to say that's borderline illegal. I know people out here who are USC football fans and UCLA basketball fans and when the subject is brought up they are ridiculed unmercifully (mostly by fans of either school).
