Well, I thought I had posted in here, but apparently, I was mistaken. I've used a few other names on other forums, but the main one I used would no longer apply. So I went with something that describes me pretty well.

While I usually consider myself a fairly competent writer, I'll read something someone else wrote and feel like a total hack. The photo is 3:00PM Thursday at Interbike. For anyone that has been to the show, that sums up that day/time perfectly.

I've always been curious. Why were you drunk at a bike convention?
Hey, six beers and a shot of tequila does not equal drunk! When I got back to my room, I found that between my backpack, shwag bag, and cargo shorts, I had stowed six empty pint glasses, and one shot glass.

The organizers even provide the media with a calendar of each day's events - giveaways, autograph sessions, tech talks, and beer. This year, I got invited to some fancy event at the Italian pavilion, but I find them rather rude, so skipped it.

I was always wondering why you were drinking and holding your glass with two hands at a bike convention. Better?
I mentioned that it was my first beer of the day to some cute girl, and she pointed out that a picture would be appropriate. How could I refuse?

A friend of mine gave me my handle. He and I both have sail boats and one day he said Hay Captain (and my first name is Jon) and I said Hay skipper. You can see my boat at Home

Somehow I had missed this thread and I'm puuuurty sure I started another but since I'm working on another post ( and prolly another run on sentence ) what the heck!
My screen name Rola643 was stolen from my sons license tag. The sport I love the most is baseball. More strategies and chess moves than most IMHO.

Anyway ROLA643 refers to a double play in baseball and the numbers refer to the infield positions on the playing field. 6-4-3 is probably the fastest double play turned in baseball 6=Shortstop, 4=second base, 3=first base.

The Baseball Scorecard - Getting Started shows a great example of this.

Avatar is pretty self explanatory, sorta. It's actually my riding partner, The Chief, named so as he is a retired Air Force Chief Master Sargent. This was taken with a helmet mounted video camera and a still captured and colored(tinted) using...yea whatever it was at the time :)
