I'm tempted by that myself. But I think I would like mine to be The Best Darn Penguin on the Whole JBoard.

Only if they show up will Opus need to worry. Unless and until they do, he's it.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

Apparently so.

I was never into comic books and superhero movies, guess I picked the wrong name.

Now I'll have to wonder why Tucker came to mind instead of Oswald.

Tucker is his father in the movies.

How about Sidney Crosby or Evgeny Malkin?
I used to be AWSOP but wanted to be more theatrical.

OK, I guess it's been long enough spoiler-wise that I can request a new rank. As much as I'd love "I beat Matt Jackson," I'll go ahead and take what I know people really want to give me:

If Crosby ever shows up, he'll whine to the judges every time he gets negged. Go with Lemieux... That guy has goodwill galore.

I've been busy and only reading the board intermittently, but this is about the fifth time in two or three days that a post has won the Internet. There's not enough Internet to go around. Plus, I need to get in the habit of not eating or drinking anything while I'm reading (especially anything written by caknuck) or I'm going to choke, ruin my computer, or both.

I believe you mentioned in yesterday's thread your name is also Sam. Why not go with "Sam guy"? ;)
