I have always felt bad about that story cause it was all BS. The original Owl was named "Lou the Derby Owl" which was a trophy played for between two local Bandy teams. Neal broke it out originally for Timbers game in some sort of connection with logging and Owls.

"High and Wide" - Fridley Bob

"Total Jackassery" - here is my memory of it, Zath was telling us at a tailgate about how he approached the future Mrs. Zath at a party after a Thunder game and one of his soon to be in-laws asked if he is with those "jackasses with the drums and horns?". Everyone had a good laugh and agreed it was a good description of us. Soon someone used the term "jackassery" and quickly "total jackassery" followed.

You know, I knew that, but I liked the other story better so I internalized it. I say we go with the Lutz story.

Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Always felt bad for answering Ford with that story and never finding out if anyone set him straight.

Was the Nessie sock puppet a straight invention from Mrs. Superrookie? Or did she get the idea from hoppyguy putting a sock on his hand at a tailgate party before KC vc DC match?

Also who came up with the vuzuNessie?

who put together the hot nuts flag?

What is Ludwig's history? I know it was mentioned during last year's supporters summit.

That was Superrookie and his brother. They requested the un-stitched bag material from the manufacturer and Kevin sewed it together.

I'm looking at it as I type this. It's a priceless piece of folk art.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned it yet but the founder of the Dark Clouds was a gentleman by the name of Wolfman Jack.
