From ESPN to EBS to RF.....
 
The other day I realized that I've been talking Raps ball on one board or another with some of the posters here since.... 1999 (I think?)

Almost 14 years.

Frickin' crazy.... Some of the younger users here were probably still in diapers :lol:

dfunkie1 10-26-2012 05:18 PM

yeah dude, it is pretty crazy when you think of it. i was still in high school when i started on espn

dfunkie1 10-26-2012 05:18 PM

and oh how i trolled lol

Stonezz 10-26-2012 05:33 PM

Damn. In 1999 I was only 9 yrs old.

jeffb 10-26-2012 05:48 PM

I was 24.......that was a good year.

Gurk 10-26-2012 05:57 PM

That was the year I started watching basketball, only 6 years old. That's a fucking long time though

i was there on espn too... not sure if i go back as far as 1999, but i remember being on in 2001 when i lived in an apartment at vaughan and eglinton. i was keon_clark back in those days, so that dates me pretty accurately...

Superjudge 10-26-2012 06:11 PM

I was already washed up and done playing... ;)

I remember lurking at espn prior to 98, and then starting to post around the end of 98 or beginning of 99, after moving to Toronto. But didn't post a ton until a year or two later. Time marches on.

It was a pretty amazing confluence of people that started posting around the same time.

dfunkie1 10-26-2012 08:20 PM

what was your handle back then, LX

i remember us always wondering if you were certain particular posters

LX 10-26-2012 08:21 PM

LXIV

dfunkie1 10-26-2012 08:26 PM

lies!

bjjs 10-26-2012 08:42 PM

bjjs_bjjs_bjjs - I think that was my name, don't believe I posted until 2000/2001 - good times. I recall Funkie being a wild card.

XiaominWu 10-26-2012 08:47 PM

when did you pick up the PB handle?

TORaptor4Ever 10-26-2012 08:52 PM

Ha. I remember Thrills was just a kid then (although I always thought he was older). I think he was... 17? Is he really 30 now??? Holy crap! :confused2:

God I hate "teabags" lol.... got on my last nerve.

and how much weight have you gained in those 14 years???

Claudius 10-26-2012 08:56 PM

I lurked a lot. My old handle was Scorpion3866. Why Scorpion? Because when I first signed up for ESPN I was a big Mortal Kombat fan and went with Scorpion. I think that account registers to 1997-98. *sigh*

I really joined most of you guys at EBS in what? 2006?

Ha! Maybe.... 70-80lbs or so? I was hella skinny!

I remember everyone thought you were chinese for at least a few years until you cleared that up lol.
