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.)

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.
You are really bad with perspectives and colors than because that is not at all what I saw when I met him.

Already?

 

Well, better than Cardinal fans, I guess.  It'd be a little strange if you accidentally became the grandfather of a new strand of cross-breed fans.  

 

Still, I thought they'd be a little young for sex yet.  I figured that the youngest would be a little young to walk.  Regular Casanova, I guess.

I'm not sure how many folks were around back then, but Die hard left for the better part of the 2011 (EDIT: or was it 2010?) season.  Kept posting Die hard-esque complaints about the She-View -- even though they were obviously a part of the rotation at that point -- made a big stink, and disappeared.  Stayed away until late September or October of that year.  Maybe if I'm courageously bored at work I'll try to dig up some of his She-View freakouts.  They were entertaining.

The she view freak outs were great and back then they were paired with more passionate cries for beer-less games. I'd love to revisit some of those and I really need to hunt down the first Tidrow post.

I was around for those, but wasn't aware (at the time) of his persona. His freak outs would have been much better (to me) if I had known him better.

I actually thought Die Hard was a woman at that time. May have even referred to him/her as such.

Totally.  I'm certain that when the Dick Tidrow stuff started happening shortly after his return, I referred to him as Dick Tidrow's aunt more than a few times.

Are we certain he's a he at this point? Has he made references in either direction?
