At the suggestion of one, MichiganGoat, I believe it is time to start an offial BleacherNation Lexicon. Although relatively new in the grand scheme of things (only been posting for 10 months), I felt I would take the initiative to begin this process.

This Lexicon is to serve as a reference guide for new visitors to the site in hopes to bring them up to speed on any inside jokes, lingo, or verbage that may not be understood in the world outside of our little paradise.

This is to be considered a work in process, and will never be completely finished. Please feel free to add your thoughts and ideas as to words and definitions that need to be included. I have just started with a short list as to leave some material for others to add. Enjoy!

(alphabetical)

Ace: the former tag line used by the almighty creator, Brett. Other synonyms include, "The One" and "He who will bring balance to the force."

BNV: (BleacherNation Virgin) this relatively new term refers to those posting on this site for their first time.

Cookies: although many believe to know the definition of this word, it has taken on an alter meaning on this site. It once was used to defuse negative, unintelligent anti-Cubs reteric (see diehard). This term was largely overused in its brief exisitence and has since been banned from this site. The only reason for its inclusion in this list is to warn unsuspecting BVN's from unknowingly using the term. Consider yourselves warned.

Dick Tidrow: this man beast roamed the friendly confines from 1979-1982. His lore has grown to unfathomable heights within the halls of BleacherNation and is considered the "Chuck Norris" of his era. Tread lightly if you dare.

diehard: screen name used by a fellow poster to this site. This bitter individual has yet to accept the regime change, and still holds onto wrong doings of Cubs yester year. Take the comments posted by diehard with a grain of salt, but please keep your distance and do not poke the bear.

"Chemistry". The answer to all a dugout's ills. Some of you new kids might have to scroll back a few months for that.

Bold changes: something for which the organization/roster/lineup wasn't quite ready in June/July.

But now is the time for bold changes.

Your right I haven't heard that one. Thanks for the enlightenment. Carry on

Oops quoted wrong one

The Horror, The Horror: a reference to Apocalypse Now and refers to the feeling one received from realizing the Cardinals won the WS. Often followed by a series of fucks.

ellipsis points (...): an often over used punctuation device that is used way too much by some posters and lends to make a comment appear schizophrenic and difficult to understand.

Duffman: Ace/Brett's former avatar (and current twitter avatar), if you don't know who Duffman is you'll have a hard time keeping up on BN.

Thanks for getting this started and the shout out Hawkeye.
