    To be fair, I often feel like I'm 73. So you get partial credit.

    So now I'm 73 and live in a trailer or RV, depending on how @Starat327 is feeling that day. One day I will write my memoirs based solely on the life this board has decided I lived.

    The Methgators will take, the amazingly stupidly named, left wing Hib Milks.

    Milks, it does a body good or some such shit.

    @Captain Dave Poulin , I believe its back to you

    I will of course be taking my team motto from "One Piece," because it represents everything I, and by extension my organization, stands for. When you stand for something on Earth Prime, it is a huge waste of time the vast majority of time. Hopefully the Quackverse will be less antagonistic toward romanticism.

    Because I am hardcore spoilering the series until I catch up, I can't go get the exact instance of this quote, but the spirit of it is embodied in the farewell to Vivi at the end of the Alabasta sequence, one of the most heartbreaking but emotionally satisfying scenes I have ever been blessed to witness. The series had long since established itself as an epic classic for the canon, but this showed just how much depth was in store.

    I've said this before. You're a sports tea owner CHOOSING to love in a trailer/RV, which is pretty f***ing boss.

    We are a fish franchise, after all. And we also have Roman roots through our historical figure. We strive to be the best, on and off the ice, in whatever form that takes in the Quackverse.

    Therefore, the Seattle Sockeyes are proud to announce our team motto capite nobis, si potes, which translates to "catch us, if you can". :naughty:

    @pit, bring the funk.

    GM Doug: Pull. Yes, sim-pull. I'm simple and I like information being straightforward.
    Gump: Because you're d-u-m-b.
    GM Doug: Right, I remember someone warning me about getting this guy.
    Gump: Someone should have warned you about getting that lobotomy.
    GM Doug: Just going to ignore that guy. Anyway, basics are best. So when it comes to getting the weather, I want someone who is going to give it to me straight.
    Gump: Whoever is giving it to you probably isn't straight.
    GM Doug: Gump, zero tolerance for homophobia old man, get that s**t out of here.
    Gump: Okay, sorry.
    GM Doug: For our weatherman, the Chimpanzees are pleased to select Ollie Williams.

    I was going to pick him but decided he might get too repetitive on the trip to the quackverse. He's one of my favorite gag characters on family guy. Him and Fouad

    The Honolulu Ghibli passionately declares as its Team Motto: "Only connect!"

    The line is taken from Howards End by E.M. Forster -- one of the finest novels by one of the finest novelists you can find. And a masterpiece of a movie starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson (it's on Netflix). Hey, can't pick tip if no one would ever select it!

    [​IMG]

    The passage in full:
    Connection, empathy -- between coaches and players; different parts of hockey ops; team and fans -- is the heartbeat of our organization. But not only the interpersonal but the intra-personal, to which the passage alludes. We must unite the opposing forces in ourselves, as pertains to a hockey world so often philosophically at war with itself. That is to say the passion and the prose of sport. Only connect!


    @mja -- connecting on over to you, bud

    For Team Notable Fan, the New Jersey Zeppelins decided we needed someone who not only turned heads when he or she walked into the arena, but who could also jump onto the ice to help out the team if needed at a pivotal moment of the game if we're ever up against some galactic hooligans. Unfortunately, after an exhaustive search we were unable to find someone..…

    [​IMG]

    Wait, Bill Murray? But you own the Stay-Pufts, we can’t take you. Wait, or can we?

    Hmmmm…..interesting.....

    Bill Murray, this is likely to be a big deal, do you think you can handle it?

    [​IMG]

    Awesome, and no worries, we won't ask you to play defense.

    We do expect a protest from His Defectiveness and haven't checked with league offices, but we've consulted with our lawyers and believe we are on firm legal footing and hereby select Bill Murray from Space Jam (the celebrity character / would-be basketball star, not the real-life actor) as our Team Notable Fan.

    [​IMG]

    And @Lord Defect, it could be worse. We also considered needing to select someone wily enough to survive a Zombie Apocalypse, at least until a practical joke goes awry, such as the character [RANCH] from the film [RANCH].

    @Chuck Downie, over to you

    My wife has a friend who seems to think it’s ok to text and call at 6:30 in the f***ing morning.

    If this friend goes missing, I, like the great Sgt Schultz, know nothing. I’m pretty sure the local gators won’t talk.

    Respectfully, he is a character no different than any of the other of dozens of characters who have been selected. That he shares a name with real person is pure coincidence, as they always stipulate at the end of the credits of films.

    The real life Bill Murray obviously did not play in an alien basketball game.

    Good morning to all the spouses complaining about old-man smells, and to everyone else as well.

    [​IMG]

    Once mja replaces that non-pick, we will start the day with @Chuck Downie on the clock, @Strawberry Fields on deck, and @Young Sandwich on the lido deck with a pair.

    I have a million things to do at the moment. including making my pick in the Mock, so monitor yourselves for the time being and don't make me get my belt. While you are behaving yourselves, please enjoy this classic from my band, Superchunk.

    This is just about the easiest category to fill that we have ever had, and you want me to believe that you are going to fill it with a character from f***ing "Space Jam"? No. He already selected Bill Murray. Bill Murray played himself in f***ing "Space Jam."

    Stop arguing semantics with me and make a real pick.
