USL/NASL Discussions USLSoccer.com :: USLFans.com :: TheCup.us :: NASL.com | Links | Link to US !
Article Posting Guidelines are spelled out here. Thanks
Announcement: After 15 years of life, these boards have dwindled to a place for a mere handful of folks to post links and have the rare discussion. Having born the financial burden for both the hosting and the software for that same 15 year period, and just not having the time anymore for this effort, I have decided to shutdown these boards at the end of the USL & NASL season later this Fall. It has truly been a blast to have been part of growing a nation-wide fanbase thru internet interaction, that in 1999 was slim or non-existent for the Lower Divisions of Soccer. That has all changed and for the better. Fan support around the country is nothing like what it was when I started this, so from that perspective, I feel I accomplished my small part in contributing to growing that connection into what it is today. Thanks for everyone's support over the years, and especially for all the friendships across the country that Vicki and I have so enjoyed (and still do) over the years. Thanks !! Dan Barnes

As we're in our winter doldrums, I'd like to take this opportunity to suggest a solution with ColdfusionMN for the rights to the Coldfus- name on the USL Discussion boards. It's admittedly a bit confusing.

Despite having been the first registered and most posts, I propose ColdfusionMN and I participate in some sort of contest as determined by the other Dark Clouds for the rights to the name. The victor will be allowed to retain his name along with getting to choose the loser's new handle.



My idea (assuming acceptance by ColdfusionMN) would be fastest time to finish an entire Surly and bag of hot nuts.

I would be up for this, however I think there need to be more rules; such as: the the surly needs to be your first beer of the day and you need to eat the entire bag of hot nuts by yourself. I do have less to lose in this than you do.

Excellent. I agree with those conditions, however would like to hear some other ideas people come up with before the contest is decided.

Not opposed to the idea of drafting teammates either.

I filled with the SOS office as the assumed name of "Soccer Boy." Anyone tries to use it or some variation and I'll sue the bastard.

Well this weekend is an FA Cup weekend, so you could always do it then. Or just wait until the big games are back the next weekend. This will be epic. Does the winner also get to choose the name of the loser? Caveat: they should try to give a clever good name to the loser.

Yup. Winner picks loser's new handle.

I think we've decided on a full beer of Surley and a bag of hot nuts correct?

Per Wes's suggestion, let's do January 19th. What time?

Points of contention:
1) Tap or Can? Furious is probably the most fitting considering it's their flagship beer.
2) I suggest no gloves or mechanical devices to crack peanuts allowed--only bare hands.
3) Bring at least 3 bags of hot nuts, variation in total number of nuts in bag part of the luck of the draw.

I am cool with that however, I like the idea of the nuts but it might take us a long time to eat a whole bag. Perhaps we should go less nuts and add another event. Also while I think cans would be most true to the Dark Clouds I think Tap would be better.

I am confused by Coldfuse and ColdFusion. I think it is really the same person.

I will have hot nuts.

Also 9am is when the games start. I'll probably be a bit late, lets plan on doing it during the half--so 10am-ish.

That's correct. We can do them separately or together or add another game people come up with at the event.
