Lifeguard

For Brian and Huey.

Recommended Posts

I want to be very honest with everyone, because I don't want to be here if I'm not truthful and don't pay tribute. The better part of a decade ago, I posted here under the alias of "Uncle Sam." and was banned for being inflammatory. I was young, incredibly naive, and had a penchant for provoking. Well, as years have passed I've continued to read on and analyze everyone's input here. I just want to pay tribute to people like Brian and Huey, who were giants to us in this little community. Most people who posted in the forum when I was younger are long gone or fairly inactive, but, once a tiger always a tiger. Baseball is something that transcends generation and year to year. I hope that I am welcome here.

Was Library Monkey the guy who posted stick-figure animated gifs for a few months?

I remember Cult of Pena too!

Off topic but does anyone know how long this site has been around?

I'm guessing 15 - 20 years?

This is a good question. I'm trying to recall the boards that I have posted on over...25 years??? Way back wasn't it the Tiger's Freep forum? Then something else? I too would like to know the "born on" date of this board. This is a very good board.

Jon Benke went into self imposed exile I think. Rumors are he is back on the site with a different name.

Miss the old Benke tho.

@MotownWebGuy could probably clarify the history of this board. 

I believe this was originally the official Tigers.com board. But I'm not sure. 

I joined back when the pudge rumors started flying around. There was another forum that I lurked on (world crossing maybe?).
