So what if, and mind you, this is pure speculation, what if die hard is simply Brett's alter ego made to spice up discussions on the main page? Think about it. Brett writes all of this reasonable logical stuff and then thinks "So how can I contrast it? Oh, I know. I'll come up with completely ludicrous thoughts an ideas under an assumed identity." Over time, the character has become better developed and more absurd.

And gave us the board mascot.

Think about it....

( I hope I didn't just pull the mask off of ol' Lone Ranger.)

You flatter me.

Notice, everyone, the lack of a denial here.

Has anyone ever noticed Brett and DieHard posting on the comments at the same time? Add in that Brett got a new computer for "the site" a year or so ago and that DieHard is most active when Brett isn't posting articles or commenting and I think we have a case where the glove fits.

For me the message board is a place where I can ask a question, and get a decient answer. Also, it is fun to read some of the comments on the front page. When I feel down just reading some Die Hard ramblings really makes me feel like things are not as bad as they seem.

1. No Die Hard
2. Few dumbasses
3. Better trolls
4. I can more easily follow my comments
5. I am the Lou Gehrig of the Cubs Calendar, sort of

2. I'm one of the few. The proud. The dub masses

I've speculated this myself, especially when Brett "scolds" "die hard" for being inappropriate on the main page. I think Die Hard is Brett's Tim Tebow

I assume Brett is making everyone up. In fact I had a Noisebot T-shirt shipped to my house to confirm that at least I am real.

I made Brett up. Trivia: My initial draft of Brett was 6'6" with blond hair. I workshopped that, and the result is what you see today.
