    What inspired your RedsZone username? / What does your username mean?

    For some, like myself, the meaning is pretty easy to discern. I like Wily Mo. The long home-runs, the broken caveman english, the outfield adventures, the whole nine yards.

    What does your username 'mean' or what inspired you to make your name what it is?

    Well, mine is dougdirt. Doug is my name, so that one worked out pretty good. Before I hurt my knee a year and a half ago, I used to ride BMX bikes and I really liked trails in my younger days more than anything else. Well in the summer when it was real dry it would get quite dusty and after a long day of riding, I always would be dirty. Well I needed a screen name when I was about 15 and dougdirt was the choice, but it was taken, so I went with dougdirt24 (Griffey at the time). But whenever dougdirt is available I will use it.
    Here is a picture from the good ole days of riding....man I miss it.

    Had mine for years before the Internet as a nickname in fanzines, slambooks and fan clubs. Cathy is my real name but CathyDuran just didn't sound right, and as a rule you didn't use your real name for a nickname, so I went with a variation.

    Don't know really, I guess because every baseball fan knows about Tommy John, and I was 25 years old when I joined. I never had to have the surgery myself, but in the spirit of being a Reds fan and having so many "can't miss" prospects have it in the past, I figured it fit. Plus it has a nice ring to it I think.

    Cool thread!

    Mine is from the best old sportcenter commericial in which Kenny Mayne is "practicing his highlights" with a Seattle Griffey HR. Dan Patrick previously starts by stating that the anchors never pre plan their calls but just shoot from the hip.

    Calls by Mayne included:

    It's never iffy if it's Griffey.

    but thats was obviously too long so I shortened it the best I could

    I lived in Florida on a well-known barrier island when I joined RedsZone, thus the name. Shortly thereafter I moved. Oh well.

    Krono is from Kronos..the misspelling of the Klingon home world

    Red is from the Reds..cause every name should have Red in it

    halcyon has an alternate definition of : idyllically calm and peaceful; suggesting happy tranquillity; "a halcyon atmosphere".

    I always liked the word. I'd rather be serene (and calmly logical) than the opposite.

    Simple really-my favorite type of grass is Bluebunch Wheatgrass which just happens to be the state grass of Iowa. My third favorite color is red so I decided that IowaRed would make sense.
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    My name is Joseph. Pretty simple. I used to go for the catchy username, but it got boring so I went simple.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
