Where the Heck is everyone these days ?

Post by hfxbomberfan » Mon Nov 02, 2009 4:09 pm

Where are all the veteran 13thmen on this website ? :hmm:

I think it's great to have a lot of new 13thmen on the site these days. But where are all the old diehards like:

-Bovic
-Big J
-ISO55
-BBBOB
-Glenegade
-LoyalLou.........

I know I've been away for a little while but I sure miss seeing some of these guys and their posts. :huh: :canada:

Interesting question?

Many of us have left the site after the bickering days and Toronto thrashing.But we all come back sooner or later.I guess facebook killed it a bit,and of course the loss of Garry sort of made everything else un-important.And let us not forget,a lot of the ol boys were Toronto boys and the Argos are almost dead in our city now. Don't worry Monton will bring us back. As for the group you mentioned, Big J was slipping away for years now.ISO, that's a good one.If we promote the site and make interesting topics,we can re-build it!!! I miss this site but was in a heavy relatinship for 20 months. Im back now,but am not as knowledgeable as I once was.I still sell gear as a favor at costs,but that became a big pain as I would loose or forget to cash cheques.I have a ton I have found.Maybe I will take them to Grey Cup and trade them for Spirt of Edmonton tokens.
Heres a treat for the old boys who remember my favorite posts.I was in buffalo yesterday. That should tell you what I was up too.I have now been single again for 3 weeks and am back to my old tricks.

-Bovic - Dunno, ask SecW.

-Big J - Married with baby now? New Hollywood career starring as the Incredible Hulk. Probably on RF.com tho with Dave Yule retired has little to complain about...

-ISO55- Posts on the CFL Zone now about how much he doesn't miss 13thman. Probably still lurks here. :wink:

-BBBOB - Left in a fit of pique (and swearing) when I wouldn't say nice things about his team. Head Cheerleader now on the BlueBombers.com Forums where only nice people are allowed to post sweetness and light about the Bombers. I think many there still believe in the Tooth fairy too. :tease:

-Glenegade - Renegade Nation board when not chasing GCBB around...occasionally shows up here.

-LoyalLou - His wife died a while go, he doesn't get online as much as he used to AFAIK. Used to chat with him a lot via email.

I'm still here, just don't have much to say, and been real busy with school and such.

I love to know where my mate BBBob is, haven't talked to him in a very long time.

The site has evolved over time, some flare ups certainly hurt some feelings, and yet other controversial types were banned. As has always been the case, you need controversy to increase ratings and a ton of that controversy isn't around for one reason or another anymore.

Everyone has their counterpart that they could poke fun at one anothers teams, when one leaves and moves on with his life, the other also loses interest. I miss Freak. :beer:

The loss of GreyCupGarry was also an unexpected blow, he was able to calm waters with his subtle posts or bring down the house if you met him in person. A one of a kind that just can't be replaced. I miss GCG as well. :beer:

We sould have a grey cup prediction thread and invite via email all the old boys back for one big reunion,maybe even Ellie will post for Garry. All banns should be lifted and we should start fresh. Anyone thrashes my honest opinions at that point should be banned again. maybe we need a What if Argos move to Monton thread,will the cfl survive!!!
