NAME - Larry Jackson
AGE - 39 (legitimately)
FAMILY STATUS - Married, just over one year. We plan to work on a familial addition toward the end of the year.
OCCUPATION - Lab Technician in a Quality Control Lab for a petrochemical company
CITY OF RESIDENCE - Houston, Texas
COLLEGE - University of Missouri-Rolla, Southeast Missouri State University, and a couple semesters at the University of Houston
HIGH SCHOOL - Iron County C-4 High School in Viburnum, Missouri (we graduated 56 of our 64 seniors in 1982)
GREW UP IN - Davisville, Missouri. Viburnum had a population of 860 in those days. Davisville is a suburb of Viburnum.
FAVORITE NBA PLAYER EVER - The Human Highlight Reel--Dominique Wilkins. Hakeem Olajuwon is a very close second. Also deserving mention are MJ, Bird, Magic, Garnett, and Isaiah Thomas. I've always been a big Kevin Willis fan. If I'd had the sense to watch basketball in my youth, I'd've loved to have seen Red Robbins, Kiki Vandeweghe, Artis Gilmore, Norm Nixon, and Lafayette Lever, among others.
SCREEN NAME - Greek mythology. Follow me on this. My favorite icon from Greek mythology is Quicksilver (aka Mercury), messenger of the gods. When I tried to find a variation of that name for my AOL account, all of the more reasonable iterations were already taken, so I resorted to chemistry. Ag is the chemical symbol for the element silver. Therefore, QuikkAg is quick-silver.
FAVORITE WIS MOMENT - I don't even know how to answer this one. Wonderful moments for me have come from cool theme leagues as a whole, single games, or even a one-game performance of one of my favorite WIS players. I guess, though, I'll go with the ONE seven-game playoff series (there were many) in which I actually bested tellito. He had won so many of them from me, I thought I would never take one.
