This discussion is making me think about the fact that there are probably a huge number of readers who have no idea why some of you call me Ace.


I'll admit that's part of the reason I still do it. But it's also the name I first knew you by. Once Duffman, forever Duffman, in my book. I'm sure some of you might, possibly, still consider me a hippie due to my original avatar. Good thing I've gotten past that.

whew. really dodged a bullet putting out that vibe with your current one.

Brett by the way what's this new warning points thing?


You're up to 1 now. Watch it.

Yes, stop trying to hijack this thread.




From 2007-2010 I was a BCB regular. I'd say in 2009 I checked in on the site a few times but I mostly thought Brett was an ass for posting a link to his site in his signature over at BCB (back in the Ace Cubbie days). Some point in summer of 2011 I came over and started commenting regularly in August 2011.

I think.


Pfft. Why did that make me a douche? It was fairly standard blog behavior back in those days.

There are so many other good reasons I'm a douche.


He won't mention the other reasons, because he is afraid of Warning Points.


I didn't say it made you a douche - I just thought you were. Turns out I was right - just not for the right reason(s).

SO glad I found this site during the Theo ordeal last year. I came over from NSBB. Which was a step up from the Scout website. But I do recall Ace on the Scout site way back in '04 or 05 ending many posts with "Just Sayin'". So when I post that here, it's my little mini tribute.

Yeah, I have to admit. When we met up for a couple of beers the kilt threw me off just a bit.

Someone should really start a thread on this thing.

Priorrulestheworld. I didn't post much there. And it was really my first experience with message boards. I really got chewed out for starting a new thread about how I thought Prior looked like Ace Ventura when he was in the stretch.
I did get tickets through the message board for the game in 2004 that happened to be Nomar's 1st as a Cub, Maddux's first try at win #300 and I believe, Dempster's fist game as a Cub. Did you go to that?

I lurked for awhile before joining. I don't remember when. I might go back through the archives and try to see when I started lurking.

I figured out the Ace name by reading comments and Brett's replies to the name Ace. I for one am not a moron. I will admit most of the times that I post I may be a little drunk but hey it is liquid courage right? At least I don't feel like a moron until the next day when it is too late to take it back.

For what it's worth, I don't think Fishin' Phil has ever posted sober.
