I was recently on CBS threads foolin around, when I came across a thread that said "What's in a name".

You had the opportunity to put your name in the thread, and explain how you came up with that screen name.  It was one of the better "non sports related" threads that I've ever read.   Matter of fact, I came up with a cool fantasy football team name from it.

Reading some of the post helped me understand what kind of "fans" and people in general are on these threads.  Some with twisted minds, some with extremely loyal followings of their sports team and sport of choice.

I liked it so much, that I'm inviting all my friends to do the same on my blog.  Thanks.  If you don't want to do it on the blog, go to


By the way.  If anyone cares.  I haven't been on in a few days cause I have been moving into a new house.  If you're curious about the bold letter, it's because my lovely wife has still yet to lift a box.  aaarrrrgggghhhhhhhhhhh.  Stress, stress, stress.  LOL.  Thanks for keeping me calm.  LOL.

Hey fellow Hater. I love your name. It would be mine if I had joined the blogging world a few years ealier. My name was just spontanious. I just got tired of searching for a name not already taken. GO CHIEFS.

Sweet, cat!

Thanks for the explanation.  As far as the "teammate" helping?  I probably finished faster without the "help".  LOL.  No one telling me where to put the boxes, furniture, etc.  I was able to move EVERYTHING into the house without any issues.  LOL.

Of course, she wasn't happy about it.  But everything is in the house.  Now it just has to be put in the proper place.  (which I get to do tomorrow while she's at work) *sigh*  When does it all end?

Hey, haters,

What's the deal with the missus not hauling boxes?  When you're married, moving is a team sport.  Time for the lady to get off the bench!

About my screen name.  It's derived from "cat 'o-nine tails".   The "cat" part pays homage to my best buddy (see my av pic), and the whole thing provides a bit of a daily reminder of what Jesus Christ suffered for the likes of me, via Roman scourging with a flagrum (aka cat-of-nine tails.)  They were pretty frightening devices.

Okay, so now that I have you believing that my motives were all deep and complex, I'll also just say that I thought it was cool to be able to substitute the numbers for the words so easily.
