Quite welcome, JQP. 'Course, first impressions can be wrong!
I'll be in and out on an irregular basis; I have a favorite forum here in NC, which we call TFF
. But I'm a USC alum (vintage '84) and nobody on my forum enjoys yappin' about the Trojans, for some odd reason.
There's a bunch of folks who spend their precious time yappin' about NC State, UNC, and Duke ... poor fellers! NC would be just about perfect if'n it had a real
football team lyin' around somewheres.
I'll prob'ly spend most of my time on TFF, not because we discuss local issues (mostly we do national and international politics and current events), but because I've taken the time to meet 28 of the people on that forum in person, and made several good close friends. The chances of me ever meeting anyone from this forum are low (well, OK, ThomasDad lives in Charlotte, 3 hrs. west of here).
I understand this is a privately run forum, and so is TFF, so I'm comfortable with that. You'll have to get used to my, umm, unique sense of humor and the fact that I do things a little different from most other Forumlings. For one thing, I have an outstanding staff of expert researchers, fact-checkers, and associated other various insufferably lame fools:
Here's the official organization chart:
In closing, I would like to make a tiny request: I often like to center my images in a post, and I tried using BBCode to center those two images above, but it didn't work. Can you add
to the list of available BBCodes, por favor?
P.S. Have we forgiven Carroll yet for leaving Booty in the Stanford game with a broken finger, children?
