I love dogs, particularly Irish Wolfhounds.  I had a great one, topped 200 lbs and over seven feet tall standing on his hind legs.  I live in Southern California, and I recall the first time it rained during Seamus's lifetime - I looked out the window, and there he was staring up at the sky (not with his mouth open, thank goodness) with this quizzacle look on his face.  Obviously smarter than juggalo.

For you old-timers, that's not the best story I have regarding Seamus as you may recall.  I define this as the "I have the best wife in the world" story.  A few years after the above incident, I was living in Carmel, California, running a small restaurant with a wine store attached (I'm a sommelier, if my handle didn't convey that).  My usual day was I'd go in early and open the shop; come home for lunch; and head back mid-afternoon for dinner service.  One day I come home for lunch, and Seamus is sitting on the couch raptly watching the TV.  As I enter the living room, I see that a lesbian porn tape is playing; I hear my wife back in the office, and head that way.  Me: "Darling, why is there lesbian porn on the TV?"  Wife:  "Seamus seems to like it."

You were crucified if you were late making a pick in a draft league...Ostracised... Heaven help you if you picked out of turn....

It's good to see you say that.  I've often wondered if my recollection of when I started were somehow romanticized in my memory.  The fora were more 'wild' back then, but we were pretty damn good at policing ourselves.

Great story, pinot!

Lord help you if you posted a league classified ad in this thread.  I remember short posts of "RUN!" , "Oh Hell", and various others right after a rook made the ultimate error.

We were only so tolerant of those unable to read and comprehend...You were treading on sacred ground back then, trespassing was not allowed.

the "Big Dick" leagues were always worth several dozen hilarious comments during the draft.

The problem is, we don't have good villains!  The arrogance of Lemayripper, the pretentiousness of tombarrister, the braggadacio of bigkahuna, the idiocy of juggalosteve, the manic-depressiveness of caracarn - there's no foil in the posts any more.  I'm all for helping my fellow player (to a point!) but that only goes so far.  I honestly think the lack of enthusiasm for the SIM lately has as much to do with the lack of villains as it does the long lapse between updates.  Maybe I need to start an alias ...

Oh yes, Dick Burns was a staple in those Big Dick leagues(sford's creation).....I'd do advanced scouting, scouring baseball.reference.com, searching for a name that hadn't yet been discovered...I'd rush home from work to update all the running leagues(my shift ended at 3am), otherwise come morning I was getting hate mail and death threats...

Guys were getting fired for being on the forums while at work...It was nuts.

The Screw Your Neighbor or sometimes known as FYB were fun also.  I believe someone tried to start one of those sometime back and it failed to fill.

Another great member of the forums was "The Mayor" - TUMH20_BOPS.  Also, I'm not sure if he still does it or not but CLK0619 used to make up an entire league of his own teams, just to try different things and (I believe) try to set unbeatable records.

OMG, Blue and A51 would have me rolling....Just checked, my sitemail contact list is still intact. I'll have to initiate a throwback league.....

CLK was good. He'd put together some really good teams in straight up leagues. The dude could rake...

Remember how fast we would use up a thread? Had to beg admin to increase the size of the threads...It was what, 30 pages?
