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

    My nick was actually born froom a momentary fit of angst on the RedsZone Board.

    I'd lurked around here for well over a year, reading people's opinions and just enjoying the anonymity of it all. Then, one day, I went to visit the site, and lo and behold I discovered that visitors could no longer view the redsZone forums for whatever reason. I now had to register with the site if I wanted to continue viewing it. Well, I never had any intentions of posting, and I was more than a bit annoyed that I now had to register just to view the site, even if I wasn't going to post on it. So I decided to use registerthis as a jab at forcing me to register with the site.

    Of course, 3,000+ posts later, here I am, lol. I thought about changing it a couple of times after I started posting regularly because, really, it's just not very nice...but people came to know me under this nick and I just decided, what the hey, I'll keep it.

    I used to post on the old Reds.com board under a different moniker, but that one has been mothballed--mainly because there are still some people who would probably like to hunt me down if they could.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    In the Past I have used DEACON. (Big Steely Dan Fan) In my youth I used this in bars when someone would ask me my name. (DEACON BLUE)
    However, about a year ago wanted to change things and my nephew had a tat of a baseball on fire, which was on his left arm.
    I thought just the right amount of cheese.

    That Wu-Tang name generator is fun and all, but just be careful. I have it on good authority that the Wu-Tang Clan ain't nothing to - well, let's just say they're nothing to mess with.

    During my college years, I developed an extreme fondness for the Champagne of Beers: Miller High Life.

    This was due largely to my amusement at some of the best ads ever created for a brand.

    My one college roommate and I became so fixated on the commercial with the faucet and the tag line "Hot.... Cold..... Miller High Life" where the guy is doing his own plumbing, so to speak, and installs a beer line in his sink. Thus, we came up with the great idea to build our own kegerator.

    After that, I was known in some circles as The Highlifeman.

    21 was a number I wore regularly in HS, so Highlifeman21 was born.

    And yes, I still drink Miller High Life. Have some in my fridge right now.

    I use it all the time online, I'm oneupper on ebay and own the oneupper.net domain (someone beat me to oneupper.com).
    There is something extremely funny about this.

    To one up him, you should have taken "The real oneupper.com."

    I think everyone knows this but mine was designed as a parody of the old Don Heffner who used to post on the old enquirer.com Reds board. I would post as his long lost brother and just basically mock his posts. He was hilarious but it was even funnier to have a parallel post to his. He would come up with obscure baseball player's names so then I would post the names of obscure game show hosts and celebrities. I don't think he liked me very much.

    I sort of liked the name so I kept it. You haven't lived until you've been addressed as "Dom" by GAC. It's awesome.

    Nuxie?

    If that's you, I have got to take my hat off to you. There was this one post that Nux put up that had me laughing so hard my ribs hurt. It had to do with a seat cushion left behind at Riverfront Stadium the prior year and Nux was asking for all of us on the board to keep an eye out for it....and people actually responded saying they were going to do so....oh man, just this entire thread of people wanting to know what section, row, seat number....as if this thing would be there the next season. It sounded like it was a serious post written by a 90 year old man...it was sweet but it was totally putting one over on everybody.

    Guess you had to be there.

    Nope, sorry. I don't think I remember him, honestly. I used to get into a lot with a guy called "FRB". I think he was from Chicago. Dunno what happened to him. I think people called him furball.

    Just curious, but was this name based upon the band from Scotland by the same name?

    I think the Band from England got it's name from the song by Steely Dan.

    Being as though you are a fan of Steely Dan, I am sure that you are aware that their song is entitled, "Deacon Blues." Whereas, the Scotish band to which I am referring (circa 1987-2001) went by the singular form known as "Deacon Blue."

    Just curious if you had ever heard their music or were a fan.
