Back in Dec of 03 I was living in the Yahoo NFL chatroom and someone provided a link to the Planet. (Don't remember the yahoo screen name of the person, but I'm sure you'd all like to beat the crap out of him ;) ). I registered, then, sorry to say, forgot about it. Like I said, most my time was spent on Yahoo. But then Pats.com actually entered the 21st century so I actually started posting there daily. Not a lot of humor, not a lot of personality, but it gave me a place to rant. Well until I was warned. :p Then one day last summer all these freaks start showing up at Pats.com. They just wouldn't leave. I had them sitting on my front porch but eventually they drank all my beer and then watered my plants. But they intrigued me, kind of like a hideous creature or a car accident. So when they all left for their home planet I followed. Course, then I discovered that I'd already been there once. But now that I knew some of the personalities I stuck around. No lurking for this gal. Nope. Just jumped right in. Unforunately for me the Planet was going through some problems. My first 40 posts or so were erased. Quite a bit of upheaval. But I did not let that deter me for I had finally found a home. A place where people actually knew sarcasm. A place where I could rant and argue without getting a ruler on my knuckles. A place where the folks were just as screwy as me. Ahhhh... Home.

It wasn't long after that, that Alice departed so I don't know her well. I came over to the planet at the same time as a fellow pats.com poster (Iowa). I remember FA posting she was from Iowa and also a Hawkeye fan. I remember her switching her avatar from Hockey Lisa to Margaret Thatcher and then she was gone. I remember thinking though that it was great to find another female who actually knew what the hell she was talking about when it came to football. There aren't that many of us. Then I discovered there were more like me around here.

So to Alice who first pioneered the planet, and to all those pilgrims who followed her and helped settle this great Planet of ours... Where would we all be without you?? I cringe to imagine.
