Hey I did a search for this but didn't find any one place to put a face with a username. All this talk of war and not football has kinda got me down so here it goes.

Come one, come all! Post your photos here if you dare.

I'll start. Hopefully Monday I'll be able to post the photo I have of myself w/ the Grey Cup.

Here we go! ---

This has the potential of becoming a very ugly (read, hilarious for the thick skinned) thread.

Let the games begin!

I can see the potential for uglyness on this thread (in more ways than one) but fret not for I have thick skin and actually that is my girlfriend's little sister. I only had two photos on my computer and that happened to be one of them. I will try to find a few more, but I urge you to post a few. I am curious to put faces to names here.

I'm thinking of posting a pic of my wedding photo from '91 and letting everybody think that I really still look like my '91 form!

'Nuff said. Pardon me if I say that your wife is even better looking than you or Ottawapattie's girlfriend's sister. You'd have to read way too much to get to that one. But good luck w/ the new bride.....not sure that a full year even counts as new. But God bless anyway.

Lucky for me, she's half blind. She'll probably get lasic and file for divorce on the same day. However, I didn't marry her for her looks, I married her for her mon-ay. I'm thrilled you didn't find me attractive. You don't know how much that means to me.

BTW, I'm just a hop, skip and a very long jump down I-45 from you. Austin is actually residing in your neck of the woods as well.

Don't feel bad man, all of our wives go selectively blind over time...but then again, so do we.

Long jump down 45. That puts you in the most polluted city in America. Congrats, I think.

Austin living in my neck of the woods could mean being anywhere from Oaklahoma City to Waco on the 35 corridor. These Texans think big, ya know, and I'm just a Yankee who's never seen a highway before 'cept for that 95 road and maybe 'root 1'!

Thanks for your help Phobia!

Nah - I think we're 2nd or 3rd (not that it's any consolation). Fortunately, I live on the north side with lots of trees to help....

Austin lives in the DFW area. I appreciate the comments about my wife. She's very good to me.

Trust me-- the blue-haired dude is DEFINITELY a Pats fan! We saw him on the train on the way home, after our loss to the Jets and you should have HEARD him!! YIKES!!! I was even more scared of him at that point! He was pretty upset by the loss!... I mean, I was bummed, but he was BESIDE himself!!... He is a really SOLID fan, though... Who else would regularly sit in the nose-bleed section?! (Well, except for Steve1, that is!!...) :)

Oooooh! I know who would sit in the nosebleed seats every game! Our friend Mike0402 from patriots.com. He says he sits by himself every game and drinks himself to oblivion. Then he goes out in the parking lot and tries to beat up Hawg.

:LOL:

Those in the nose-bleed section are hard-core, indeed! :)
(Mike, however, is a hard-core loser, however... He is a totally dysfunctional fan, much less say human-being...)

No, Pook. Mike said that he has really good seats. Everything else is pretty much on target.

That link you posted of the zoom in from space is pretty interesting. Pity I don't have any mescaline handy, let's just hope it doesn't give Admiral Jheelizar any bright ideas. For him that would be kind of like MapQuest.

Yes, a frequent lament of mine as well....

I find the concept of 10,000,000 light years a real challenge to comprehend, I don't know about you. The idea of light traveling at 299,792,458 meters per second (in a vacuum of course..), and --relatively speaking -- really not getting anywhere in a year's time. Speaking of hallucinogens, if that previous thought doesn't leave you feeling a little bit like Alice in a Lewis Carol sort of way I don't know what does.

I have always found it fascinating that you can look up at the sky and some of what you see are stars, but many are entire galaxies like our own Milky Way. The enormity of the Universe is tough to comprehend. I thought the state of Kansas was a long drive.

I always thought that atoms and galaxies looked suspiciously similar - especially when stoned.

And I have always been in touch with the Alice side of my personality without needing drugs to get there. The world has always had a schmeared sort of bizarreness to me. Kind of like this guy - picture him saying in a UMass Amherst/Deadhead accent saying " Oh WOW, man!:

I have no good pics of my entire family on the digital camera. This is probably due to the fact that I've got the oldest digital camera known to mankind and it takes horribly fuzzy pictures.

I'll throw a couple of pics up here and see if I can convince Mrs Pookie to have her picture taken w/ me.... That's painful you know.

Nah, that's just a box of pictures and junk. My Pats picture has got Terry Glenn, Curtis Martin, Drew Bledsoe and Ben Coates. Of course none of which play for the Pats any longer. But I can't bring myself to get rid of the picture.

Hey Peg, my seats are in section 236 (under the luxury box overhang). I'll be sure to look for you when the season starts. If there are any other season ticket holders on this board, we should try to plan a get together at one of the games this season.

Re: Re: A shot of the field from our seats in section 238... :)
 
Actually my seats are in sec 237 under the overhang also (row 25). I'm fairly happy except the guy in front of me has to stand up and high five everyone 100 times a game. Makes it hard to see everything.:banghead:

I think we have some of the best seats in the house. I love the protection from the elements that the overhang gives us (that was an unexpected bonus). The biggest headache was the crowd behind us watching the game from the walkway. Everytime I got up I had to push my way through the crowd. It was a very poplular spot for poeple to watch. Security seemed to improve that as the season went along. Things also improved dramatically when they put in the portables behind us as well as the beer stand. My only other complaint is that I'm near the aisle and I always seem to get restless people sitting in my row. Why people insist on getting up in the middle of a play and making everyone else get up as well is beyond me.

Do you have handicapped up behind you ? I called yesterday and haven't received my invoice yet because they are making handicap accessability changes. They say my payment won't be due until maybe June. Oh- I am lucky that I'm mid row with nobody walking past. I just wish the guy in front would sit down now and then.:banghead:

No I don't. There's an entrance to the club right behind our section. Putting handicap seating up there would probably restrict the walkway leading to it. Wouldn't want the rich and famous to have to look at handicapped fans on their way into their palace :D

I thought there was already handicapped seating in our general vicinity, either behind 238 or 239. Are they going to relocate you to make way for more handicap seating? I received my invoice back in February and renewed the tickets a few weeks ago.

Peg 03-26-2003 11:44 AM

Oops! At least I thought that it was section 238... :)
Probably because one of the photos that Joe took (that I didn't share here), was taken of me, with the section 238 sign beside me. Oh, well--I am glad that Bideau & Joe, as season-ticket holders have connected here & will hopefully meet next season... I hope to meet you as well, Bideau, as I am optimistic that I will be sitting in Section 237, AT LEAST once next season... :)

Peg -

I don't yet own a digital camera, or a scanner. I do have a bunch of nice pics of our annual Baxter trip, but they're all hard-copy. Fortunately, Hawg brought along his digital camera on the last trip. Unfortunately, as the photographer, he isn't in any of them (except one, and it's not really a good likeness of him). Any way, here's one with me (on the left) and our buddy Tom, taken on Katahdin's Tableland, on day 3 of our backpacking trip.

Tom, Mike (who joined us at Chimney Pond), and DKM (again, Hawg73 was the photographer) on day 4. We're only a couple of miles from our Roaring Brook base camp at this point. After 4 days on the trail, we're thinking of that cooler loaded with cold beer and nice thick prime rib-eye steaks.

Tom watches over the prime ribeyes, while cinnamon buns bake in the dutch oven. Out of camera range, Hawg73 and DKM are putting a major dent in a case of cold Sam Adams.

hmmmm....

the more "pictues" I see of Hawg the more I think he played Wilson in HomeImprovement..never quite get a good image of the face....

I also could have sworn that in one of the "wilderness" picture I saw the top of a Nissan Pathfinder....:harumph:

I wont even talk about the rumor that you hired some Tibetan mountain climbers to carry your bags during the trip whos only break was when you donned them for your pictures.....

Since DropKick was on the Great Outdoors theme, I dug up this picture from '99 while I was living in Mississippi. This was late night after fishing in the shallow portions of Sardis Lake. Guess how I caught these 2 lovely catfish? Grappling! It's a real redneck style of fishing and you have to have a special grappling permit. I thought it was a joke at first, but it turned out to be big fun.

Geez, I thought I'd be in trouble with our PETA friends for posting the steak picture.....wait till they get a load of your fish-grappling!

Since my good buddy DropKick posted a so-so pic of me, I decided to post one. This is a recent shot of me downing a Margarita at the Fort Lauderdale airport last month. and yes, I had quite the buzz going if that is not obvious to all.

Now at least Brewski can't accuse me of being "Wilson" anymore.

And Pookie, I kind of think you dig the redneck lifestlye - don't BS us (it sounded like a good time).

Hey Pookster -

Does this make you feel guilty?

Peg 03-27-2003 07:27 PM

dKM & Hawg--
Two thumbs up for the cinematography & panoramic view shots! :)
Wow! I thought that my favorite area in Maine (the Rangeley Lakes Region) was gorgeous... Your Baxter Park is truly pristine & seemingly unparalleled in its natural beauty! Thanks for sharing these photos & for taking us on this virtual tour of your trail-scapades... :)
Nice chinny hairs that you've grown, Margarita Man! :)

Uh, Pook--
Aren't those catfish really slimey & slippery little suckers to grapple onto?! That's been my experience with the ones that I have caught in Florida, anyways... Yuck!
Me-thinks that you were a redneck in a former life... Hee-hee! :)

Jeez... Almost DKM! But then I remember the good old days of sticking M80's in the sunfishes mouths and blowin' em up. Free speech once again comes to mind and I believe that People Eating Tasty Animals has every right to their 'shock and awe' campaign.

Peg.... They're slimy alright. Especially when you've got your arm all the way inside of a cut off 55 gallon drum underwater and you've been holding your breath for nearly a minute. However the key to grappling is to take turns with the real rednecks. I learned that you let them go first to wear out the fish that's in that barrell. Then, when it's your turn, you stick your hand in there (you MUST wear work gloves) find the sucker's mouth, jam your thumb in the mouth and let it bite you. It doesn't hurt much as catfish have many little teeth that barely ever penetrate the work glove. Once he's bitten you, he's doomed. You've got access to grab him by the gill and yank him out. The tough part that would piss off PETA is that cats have the horns....big ones sometimes and they often break when you pull the fish through the small hole at the top of the drum.

See here's how grappling worked in my experience w/ it. These old guys cut plastic 55 gallon drums in half and cut a hole in the halves that's barely big enough for your arm. In late winter they go out on the shallow part of the lake, which is miles long and wide and put their barrels down in the muck so that the hole is the only way in (or out). These old rednecks don't even mark their barrels, they just remember where they are, which amazed me. Then the catfish go in there in the spring to make babies. The mommas and poppas are nice and big by summer. Their spikes are dull because they're old and worn. The little ones are different.. they're active and those friggin spikes hurt and cause a heck of a wound and possible infection if they get you right. You go out in the boat with the old timers who never get out, they just yell at you what to do. You walk side by side in the muck with old sneakers on 'till somebody hits a barrel. That person calls the others over and puts their foot over the hole. Then you just take turns holding your breath and going under the water, completely blind. You stick your arm in the hole and chase the fish around w/ your gloved hand. You do this until somebody gets the prize... I got 5 fish that day and the 2 in the pic are my biggest ones.

If that aint redneck, I don't know what is! It's actually scary at first because the old timers make it a point to tell you horror stories about turtles and snakes that find their way into the barrells.:( :(

Hawg73 03-27-2003 08:57 PM

Pook,

That is the damndest thing I ever heard. I thought you were messing with us a little, but theres too much detail. It has to be true.

I gotta try some fish grapplin'!!

Hawg! You are HOT!

But seriously... Now that I've seen the picture of you, the Uncle Hawg name will come back for sure. You look exactly like my Uncle Harry, the cop, when he was much younger and un-dead. The redneck life has it's good's and bad's. Good food (especially BBQ) and good people in the Tennessee/Mississippi, but God forbid you want to run in and out of the convenience store for a gallon of milk real quick........ "how y'all doing today? Hot out there aint it? I see you got a bruins shirt on, I didn't know they was black and yeller, how's UCLA doing this year anyway? University of Rhode Island? What part of New York is that in?" Oy.... they meant well but sometimes you just want your change. One time my buddy Jonny lost it and said "why don't you just shut the hell up and give me my Marlboro's?" He's a wonderful yankee personality to have around..... :D

Wow! Nice head Alice! And that buttocks...mmmmm. But I give you credit as a goalie. We used to play every weekend on the rink in Franklin at around 1am and a couple of times I tried goalie....That sucks. The pads are wicked heavy and I got a puck right in the bicep that made my glove arm fall right off onto the ice... I swear the guys stuck it back on for me! :eek: After two sessions in goalie, I went back to left wing and was happy to get the occasional slap shot off the ankle.

This is true. When I played as a filler in my brother's league when I was about 17 (which I really had no business playing in this league) I blocked a blue line slap shot with my shin pad. That's what you're supposed to do, right... use you're shin pad? This particular shot hit me in such a way that I completely lost the use of my left leg. Like you stated, it's not like I could've have called a timeout because little pookie had his left leg amputated by a puck. So I made my way to the bench on one leg, but couldn't skate another shift.

As for laying down to block a shot. I forget who is was on the B's some years ago that had his ear turned to hamburger by blocking a shot. I wanna say Rick Middleton, but I don't think it was that long ago. Gary Galley, that's who it was! It was gross. Those guys are brave and partially mentally retarded at the same time to take that risk night in and night out. No way. Frozen pucks hurt, I don't care what anybody says.

Hawg73 03-27-2003 10:42 PM

In MY day we didn't HAVE any of those fancy-schmancy PADS. We took a shot right off the shin bone, then pushed the shattered bones back into place, taped them up with baling wire and then caved in a few skulls with our Northlands.

AND WE LIKED IT!!!

Oh, my effing word--
That is hysterical, dKM!... :)
Speaking of "Cast Away", though---I know someone that was contacted about having his props involved in that movie (& they were!)... Kind of a small world story... :)
But back to your funny photo--you got it... Straw and all... :)
Thank you, thank you!... :)
RO, MFTFPF!... -Peg :)
p.s.--some day you will get it... the acronym, that is! :)

Peg 04-07-2003 08:23 PM

Yikes!!...
The thought that you guys may have met before is kind of scary!... Don't 'cha think?!... You all have been travelling up there and hiking around there for YEARS now, haven't you?!...
My aunt & uncle used to live up by Mt. Katahdin... Wouldn't it be bizarre if we had all met around there, before?!... :cool:
It IS a small world, afterall... :)
Maybe we shall see how small, at our gathering on the 26th at the Good Time Emporium, ay?! :)

Actually, I've only been twice, but DropKick has been going for years and you might have run into him. Crazier things have happened.

You wouldn't be an ex-marine that lives up there for months at a time are you? No? Thank god.

Thanks for the nice words, but the only time we have "met" was back in the day at Patriots.com as far as I know.

Prometheus441 04-07-2003 10:41 PM

Hm,funny you should mention that.I do know happen to know one but he rarely stays from Cooper Pond ,in the Jo-Mary district.
Could it be that there are mutiple X-jar heads,struting thier stuff
around the Maine wilderness.Sounds vaugely like something from deliverance !,lol.

We met this creepy dude at the bunkhouse we shared at Russell Pond. He was allright the first night, at least up until I asked him what he was going to do when the park closed later that week. I don't think it ever occured to him before I asked. Come morning he would not speak at all and looked right through us.

He told us he had been there all season and likes to bushwhack through the brush. Regular trails aren't badassed enough for him. At one point he heard a plane (we couldn't hear anything) and he started railing against the U.S. military for soiling the pristine solitude of Baxter. We wasted no time in hitting the trail that morning and I kept looking over my shoulder to see if he was stalking us. The characters you meet up in the deep woods.

At one point he looked at DropKick and said "you got a purty mouth boy". Yikes.

Prometheus441 04-09-2003 01:22 AM

Sounds like a perfect of example of someone who has spent waaayyy too much time alone in the woods.Next time ya hit Baxter,ya go check out big & little niagra falls.Its a great place to
see and does'nt hurt to take a bath after a day on trail either :thumb: ,lol.
