I admired lmcjaho's idea of using his 1000th post for letting us all know a little more about him, and I think I'd like to get a thread started so we can relate to each other, and if it's ok, I'd like to use the same stuff he did to get to know each other. I'll start off with mine:
Real Name Matt
Place of Residence Erie, PA, but born in Pittsburgh PA.
Occupation in school, 11th grade to be specific
unattainable dream job Major league baseball player, how sweet would that be
much more attainable dream job - Sports medicine doctor
Places I want to visit before i'm old Florida, Hawaii, Bahamas, anywhere warm...yea i'm a beach baby
Hobbies and Interests Summer - Baseball, watchin TV, golf, trampoline
Winter - Basketball, playin poker, playin outside, and good stuff like that
Best sports moment Starting 1st base 2 years ago as a freshman in a district playoff game for the varsity baseball team
Worst sports moment starting power forward for my varsity basketball team as a sophomore, against a massive rival, then missing the last shot to win the game
How I ended up here - Browsing the CBS Sportsline Message Board during fantasy baseball season, and I caught a glimpse of a guy saying he was a huge fan of fantasyfootballcafe.com, there were tons of great minds here, and i decided to check it out. Sure enough, I haven't turned back since, and I don't get any advice from anywhere else but here!
Favorite Cafe Feature The mixture of outstanding fantasy football insight, and the group of people who make it all happen. There is no doubt in my mind that everyone here is a devoted fan to fantasy football and it's refreshing to know that someone else shares the same obsession I do.
Cafe Pet Peeve How some people just type in a simple letter or word just to simply up their post count. Sure it's nice to have a lot of posts, and you'll be respected more for that, but I assure you that a person with 100 posts, all full of great insight and put in very thoughtfully will have more respect than someone with 1000 posts who all have a simple "Absolutely!" or "go for it".
There ya have it! I like this idea, and hope to get a lot of other people to do it!
Ok, I guess I will go since I have a few minutes to spare..
