This is my first post. I've been a long time lurker and a Uconn fan for over 25 years. I grew up watching the huskies since I can remember. I remember sitting on the couch watching "the shot". With one second left on the clock my mom was freaking out that we were going to lose. I calmly told her it would be alright and we would win. For some reason I really felt we would win...then we did.

I was deployed in the middle east as a Naval Flight Officer between 2004-2006. I remember delaying some of our mission briefs (which meant a shorter pre-flight) so I could catch the end of some of the tourney games. Yeah, my Uconn addiction trumped national security. I also did that for the red sox games in 2004 but thats a different story.

I was engaged to a girl who went to Duke. I just couldn't stand her constant idiotic comments. She was a a Uconn hater and I had to dump her. That, and all people who went to Duke are inherently annoying.

Anyways, I really love reading this board. I have two screens up at work and always have some document up that makes it look like I'm working. Most of the time though I have the boneyard opened up in the bottom left corner of my screen and I'm really just reading that. I know I'm not the only one.

I could go on and on but I'll keep it short for my first meeting....ehem....I mean post. Cheers.

Think of the BY as a mental exercise in Multitasking. Your doing your employer a favor.
Although retired I have a BY session open even though I might be doing
research in another session. It keeps the mind sharp. I also might be doing a crossword
puzzle at the same time.
The only real problem is laughing and drinking coffee . i'm pretty much banned from the living room.

Hi Sandeman!

That was a great first post. The best line: "She was a a Uconn hater and I had to dump her." I read that, laughed, and then thought, well...yeah.

Welcome to the board!

So what's your problem - UConn men's bb obsession, reading this board, or having to find out the hard way about Duke women?:) Sounds like you have two problems to me!;)

Welcome to a place of mostly useless information with a smattering of useful information including a very small amount of pertinent information relative to this forums name. Personally I love this place!

Nice post Sandeman. Good to have another Navy man aboard. I was a grunt corpsman with the 1st Marines.

Welcome aboard, Sandeman! You have to have a Husky addiction to be here, and your behavior is certainly very normal around these here parts.
