    Some of you have pretty interesting usernames. What does it mean?

    My name is Ryan. My friend's little sister, when she was 2, couldn't say my name. She called me Rynie. Well, that nickname stuck, and now my nephews/niece call me "Uncle Rynie".

    If it wasn't obvious. :)


    There were some people out there that thought Sam I Am was for Yosemite Sam since I had him as an avatar.

    Risen from the ashes, because I tend to self-destruct pretty frequently. :)

    Witten + tenacious... fused together.

    I signed up and started posting regularly over on the TrueBlue Message Boards right after Jason Witten made the catch-and-run play where the Eagles D swiped the helmet off his head.

    [​IMG] <----- a standout football moment in time we all know and fondly remember

    Jason Witten &#8212; thinking about what he stands for as a player and family man + how he's always gone about his business &#8212; has always been a favorite of mine. He's tenacious. I think of myself as tenacious. There it is.

    Not the most clever, ever, but that's the reason for the username.

    I was born and raised in "Ethiopia", moved to the US (Texas), started to get to learn about the game, and eventually became a big fan of the team with a "star" on its helmet.

    Mine stems from the dreams of a boy named Charlie who was molested by his uncle at a young age. He chronicled this event in the Dayman/Nightman saga whilst high on glue.

    Its in reference to Michael Jordan.

    My parents were born and raised in Illinois. I grew up watching the Bulls all the time with my father.

    Vintage Michael Jordan was what I grew up watching....

    When I joined this board, I lived in Albuquerque. I also travel a great deal. The code for the Airport here in Albuqerque is ABQ.

    It's actually funny because back in the day, when we had Quincy Carter, many believed it meant Anybody But Quincy. :laugh2: Never true but I always found it humorous.

    I got my name back in the Dallas Morning News days. I was at French Quarter Fest in New Orleans during the NFL draft. I was dying to know what Dallas was doing in the draft so I left Jimmy Buffett's Margartiaville to check my PC back in the hotel room. After a slow and agonizing dial up, I logged in as JIMMYBUFFETT for the first time.
