Hey guys...long-time lurker here since just after the Old Merc site was shut down (used to lurk there too). I've been on this site so often for the last several years that I figured I'd finally get my $hit together and start posting from time to time. IDK if you regulars ever look at the Welcome Thread, but I thought I'd give it a shot. Thanks Bones for sponsoring the forum. Just a quick few "about me" points...I grew up in Southern CA and would go to the LA Coliseum from time to time with my dad to see games (he eventually stopped taking me because his car stereo got stolen twice...). I'm 41 years old now. I've moved around quite abit, from South Orange County to Santa Barbara to Charleston, South Carolina. I now live in Donkey Land on the west side of Denver. Love living in CO, but wading through all of the Donk crap is tough (that orange is hideous...way more obnoxious than it looks on TV). I try to make it out to Oaktown for at least one game a year, although this year might be at Mile High. Obviously I feel the same as the rest of you, with the last decade plus having been really tough to endure. Hoping this year is the start of something different (it kinda feels like it is...IDK, at least we have a few legitimate building blocks). Thanks again for the opportunity to participate!
