He may have been a curmudgeon, but I did enjoy his "Pick the Pac12 winners" each week during the season. I was willing to pinch hit for him during his time out and if he's not back in the Fall will try to do it again.
He's my antithesis..I think as much positively about JT as he is negative..I fail to see a reason why he should leave this board. Since he is so informed, it is hard to counter some of his more "logical" arguments..but on the other hand, he just comes off as bitter-hateful most of the time. Miss him? No..but my only complaint would be his hijacking of just about any thread with his hate for JT.
We need Cal fans and he is certainly one!
Access is better than ownership!
Little did I know with my innocent little post.
^^^ I'd call it a drunken stupor rather than drunksanity.
Hate to say it, but DO's presence on the board led to a lot of it being hijacked by page-long threads that were about nothing but DO's war with some other poster.
I would constantly SMH over how something as trivial as, say, the stats of Cal running backs in the 90s could lead to such bitter debates between grown adults. Seriously, does it matter that much? And don't even compare it to bar-room debates in real life over the same kind of stuff. Those are fun. These aren't.
I thought this board was supposed to be about burritos and Cal football, not who's winning the un-civil war between posters?
Whatever. Glad that's over (or at least somewhat reduced).
