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

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.
