Aw, Boomer. I'm always impressed with your story telling ability. I feel so very blessed to have been a part of this forum since before Nate was admin. I remember when Ben was just a little
I can't remember if my original join date was in 2005 or 2006. That's a long time ago!
The first time I met Matt was in Houston. He was doing a meet and greet at a Best Buy there. Sean Sherk was also there and Sean wouldn't stand up next to me, probably because I'd tower over him. Matt stood right up and when I told him that I was a regular poster on his website he asked who I was on here. Then he told me to post more. So I did and then later on became a mod.
I've really enjoyed my friendships that have formed due to this website. The people here aren't just "virtual" friends or people that I will eventually forget. That includes you, Boomer. You are a special guy and I feel very blessed to say that I know you. I pray for you every day. Thanks for sharing yourself along with your "tales."
