Who is everyone?


Who is everyone?

Thought I'd start a thread that would allow everyone to tell us who they are, where they live and how long they've been playing on PC.

I'm Drew (AKA The Sheik), I'm 67 yrs old, I live in Victorville, CA (in the High Desert region of the Mojave Desert), I've been playing PC since 2009 and I bleed Dodger Blue.

Re: Who is everone?

Jason Slater, live 30 min from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, PA (The Office 'location'), or 1.5 hrs from Philadelphia. Been on PC for 2 years now, diehard Phils fan, Fave Teamsaholic, deep love for sabremetrics...I can be abrasive if you haven't dealt with me, but if you compete against me you see that I love this site/game and want to see all facets at their best.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

I am an alien from the planet Lovetron, where I spend the off-season practicing "interplanetary funkmanship" and where my girlfriend Juicy Lucy lives. Oh wait that was Darrell Dawkins my bad.

Re: Who is everyone?

My name is Jason and I am in my mid 40s. I live near Hershey, PA, but was born and raised near Cleveland, OH. I am an Indians fan and are raising my boys to be Indians fans. I have been using PC since 2014.

Re: Who is everone?

I’m Noah, I live near Charleston, West Virginia and, I just turned 15 last Friday




I’m also a freshman in high school

Re: Who is everone?

I’m a 37 year old steel worker and live near Huntington WV. I have 3 boys and 1 girl who keep me busy with sports year round. They are 20,17, 15 & 14. I was once Huntington’s Hotdog Eating Champion at their yearly festival. :) I like the Reds and the Kentucky Wildcats.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

wow! a Reds fan. who knew they existed?

Re: Who is everone?

More shockingly, who knew steelworkers still existed in America?! I thought NAFTA had put an end to that kind of thing.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Wait, Huntington, West Virginia?

I live about 45-50 minutes away from there in Charleston

Re: Who is everone?

Michael is my name at work...Mike is my "normal world name" . I work in a credit union in Maine and have been on here for less than a year. Big Red Sox fan, but sadly am tired of hearing about the Excellence of Boston Sports. Boston fans are incredibly annoying.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

When you live in the state I do, it gets tiring to know that the only “important” sports teams you have are a D-1 college that’s over 2 hours away and a Class-A minor league team that isn’t doing too good at the moment

Re: Who is everone?

21 year old college student, majoring in sports journalism. Fightin Phils fan and this is my third league.

Re: Who is everone?

I'm Michael-but old friends call me Mikey. 49 yr old I'm from Santee, CA it's about 15 miles east of San Diego, same county. born and raised, Padres fan and a half ass dodger fan. Sign on PC, maybe a yr ago, then left after a couple season, then came back and been on for last 6 months or so.


Re: Re: Who is everone?

I have a friend that lives in Santee and my sister lives in San Diego - I love going to games at Petco - great place to watch a game.

- The Sheik

Re: Re: Who is everone?

We almost went extinct in 08. I was laid off for 14 months. Trump has gave us life again with the tariffs he’s placed on steel and we’ve been booming since he took over.
Yep. I’m close to Huntington but on the other side. I’m 1 1/2 hours from Charleston. That’s why I gave you a hard time about being a hill billy WV Kid. I’m right there with you. I always hear it. Haha.

Re: Who is everone?

It’s all good

Re: Who is everone?

@The Sheik ya, petco-park is great, I was surprised how well it turned out, there really isn't a bad seat to watch the game in.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

As if you guys don't know, I live in Seattle and build websites. :)

Re: Who is everone?

My name is Tim i live in Michigan in the country 6mi from a town of about 10k i like football/baseball/basketball/ sometimes hockey but never soccer i am 57 years old and i have been playing this great game since around 2012

Re: Who is everone?

My name is Daniel, I’m 30 yrs old. Live in the great state of Texas. Lover of most sports, and Tim you have been missing out on soccer... Currently a regional for a Wheel and Tire company. I am a numbers person, that is why I have always had a special love of Baseball. Been playing since 2015. Gbacci you have done an awesome job on this site. And it keeps getting better.

Prediction The Cleveland Indians will win the 2020 WS and Cleveland Browns will win super bowl 54.

Re: Who is everone?

hey shiek,are you a zappa fan.scary to see his old interviews and what he said then is happening now. im james and im 52,this is like field of dreams come to life

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Yes - Zappa fan since the Mothers years in the 60's. User name is a take on the album "Sheikyerbouti". Only got to see him live once , in the '70's, with his Flo & Eddie band. Big fan of Dweezil too and saw his Roxy performance with Zappa plays Zappa a few years ago.

- The Sheik

Re: Who is everone?

I'm Grant, 24 years, love in Hudsonville, MI. It's by Grand Rapids. I'm a Janitorial Supervisor, and Michigan, all terrible sports teams Detroit, and a Pats fan. Jose Iglesias is my favorite player. EVER! I also think Miggy sucks.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

I like that there are a wide range of ages from all over the US and Canada on PC - anyone out there from any other countries?

Re: Who is everone?

I'm originally from the Planet Remulak, we first settled in New Jersey, however our neighbors took offense with our Halloween treats ( Six packs of Beer and Fried eggs) and ended up driving our family away, we tell our new neighbors we are from France.

We watch MLB on Satellite and consume large quantities of Beer and Hot Dogs - All we can say is " You are what you is"

Re: Re: Who is everone?

My name is Patrick, 40 ,yo

a french canadian out of Montreal,Qc...

while other kids were playing baseball to stay in shape for the Hockey season, I was just doing the oposite playing hockey to be ready for the baseball season...


I just can't wait to get a baseball team back...

until it comes back, I am playing pc, so I can stay in game shape!

Re: Who is everone?

Tony, 45 yo from staten island, ny. Mets fan...hahha..jk, big yankees fan. 4 kids, a 5byear old in heaven, a 3 year old girl and 2 year old twins, boy and girl. Self employed Ironworker, i build railings, gates, fences and balconies. Been here forna while, cant even remember when i joined. Love that gbacci gives us a chance to be brian cashman. Most everyone here i dealt with is stand up people.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Jason Rose, I live in Conneaut Ohio right on the shore of Lake Erie right next to the P.A. Line. I'm not really sure how long I've been on pc lol. But I enjoy doing this, love running leagues and getting to know people even if I do get cranky from time to time(that happens when your 45). I have a 23yr old daughter and 17yr old son(who just took first in the state of P.A. In a bowling tournament). I have an 8mo old granddaughter, am I really old enough?

Re: Who is everone?

Yeah, you're old enough Jason. Enjoy that grandchild. They're so much fun!! So, I'm Cole (aka Gus, aka Captain Lol). I'm 52, married, two children (step) and two grandchildren, ages 14 and 11, so I'm guessing I hold the record for being the youngest age to become a grandfather, at least among you PCers (I was 38). I live in Manitoba, right in the center of Canada, the center of North America, the center of the universe (that's actually more likely Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota where my beloved Twins play). HUGE Twins fan. Just to show you how much, some of my favorite Twins of all time are Mark Funderburk, Bernardo Brito, Tack Wilson, Tom Johnson, Mac Scarce, and of course some guys you've heard of like Carew (my all-time favorite), Puckett, Mauer, Bostock, Mudcat Grant, Liriano, etc. etc. I could go on. I've been on PC for 2 years now. Love the site. Love the banter. Love building up teams and competing against some great owners on here. Love running my two leagues (BNBL and AYL) and my ALL-TWINS sandbox league. Thanks Guy. And thanks to the Sheik for starting this very interesting and community-building thread. Great idea!

Re: Re: Who is everone?

I'm Avila, i'm a NUISCANCE

Re: Who is everone?

I guess even Avila can even be right once!

Re: Who is everone?

My name is Joe. I was born, raised, and currently reside about 50 miles Northeast of Atlanta, Georgia. Contrary to what it might seem from my user name, I am not a maistro, or a fan of the opera, etc... The bravo03 comes from the fact that a lot of people in this area call the Braves the Bravos, and the 3 for Dale Murphy one of my favorite players. I am 48 years old, a Design Engineer for a manufacturing company in the area. I am a looooooonnnnnngggg suffering Braves, and Falcons fan.

By the way gus, you became a grandfather at 38, I became a father for the first (and only) time at 37. Then again, I've always been kind of slow...

Re: Who is everone?

My Name is Doug...55 yrs old....born in France (only lived there 2 yrs) and grew up mostly in Canton, OH. I am a computer programmer and currently live in Charlotte, NC. I have 8 kids ranging from 22 to 3.

Huge Steelers/Pirate/Penguins fan and love this site! My wife tells me I spend too much time on it tho. :)

Re: Who is everone?

Guess I should get in on this. My name is Dale and i am just shy of 45 (July). I am from Warrenton, Missouri which is about 50 miles west of St. Louis. Die hard Cardinals fan and Blues fan. Lets Go Blues. I am a veteran of the US Navy and Missouri Army National Guard and am have been in sales for the past 20 years. Oh and I hate the Chicago Cubs and New England Patriots

Re: Who is everone?

Thank you for your service!

Re: Who is everone?

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Thank you for your service Waller

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Dale - my Aunt & Uncle lived in Warrenton (both passed now). I grew up in Indiana and listened to Harry Carey and Jack Buck on the Cardinal broadcasts many a night in the late 50's through the 60's.

- The Sheik

Re: Who is everone?

guy I didn't know you lived in Seattle - so do I (Phinney Ridge). I'm also a software engineer (integrations, apis, java/python, aws, blah blah blah).

Re: Who is everone?

My name is Jason. I too live in Huntington, WV. Obviously a huge Reds fan, we do still exist. Car Salesman by trade. Two of my coworkers are highly addicted to PC also (Mranastasia and Hamburglar). Have only been on PC for little over a year, but feel like I know most of you already from competing with you guys. Learned a lot from a bunch of you. Also find it a major accomplishment when I beat a few of you. Love to tinker with all kinds of builds and lineup configurations. And my wife also thinks I spend too much time on PC.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

You go to Huntington High or Huntington East?

Re: Who is everone?

Question - if MrAnastasia is a car salesman, why can’t I make any deals with him? Lol

Re: Re: Who is everone?

He's a CAR salesman Gus, you really want to make a deal with him THAT badly?

You know you will be overpaying for what you buy, and are not getting fair value for your trade-in.

Re: Who is everone?

My name is Rob. I've been on PC since 2011. I'm 48 YO and will become a gramps this October (I said the same thing @Jason when I found out..) I live in central Illinois....I'm an analyst by trade....but a Dino (COBOL/DB2/JCL background)....long live the Mainframe!

I'm a Reds fan (who wouldn't be growing up in the 70s/80s :))....although I grew up on the Cubs and WGN....back when Superstations were the only way to see MLB on TV if you weren't from a big city! I can remember other than the game of the week (and TWIB)....you could catch the Braves on TBS, Cubs on WGN, Mets on WWOR and Dodgers on KTLA.....back when Cable TV was an infant!

Re: Who is everone?

Congratulations, Rob! Do you know if it's gonna be a boy or a girl?

Re: Who is everone?

I’m betting it is.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

lol

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Thanks.

Yes. It is a girl. After 3 sons....we’re shifting gears for the grandkids!

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Where in central Illinois ?

Re: Who is everone?

My name is Mike and I live in Ashland, VA. I'm married w/ a 3 yr old daughter, who is a handful. I'm 38 but feel 58 lol I'm a diehard Mets fan thanks to Bobby Bonilla, as I was all Pittsburgh until Bonilla left. I've been on PC for maybe 3 years, brought on by TacomaBoy57, who I work with. My wife hates PC, because every time I tell her I have a draft tonight, I get the angry eyes lol

Re: Who is everone?

I think this has to be one of the most posted on threads ever on PC. I also joined PC at the end of March this year. I'm a newbie compared to most of you.

Re: Who is everone?

A MET'S FAN!!! They are as rare as Cinci fans!

Re: Who is everone?

Re: Who is everone?

Hello from Dan in erie,pa. I'm 53 and a letter carrier. Just joined PC and have played other sim baseball sites. Looking to see how well this fares. I'm a follower of the Nationals but especially miss the Expos of the late 70s, early 80s.

Re: Who is everone?

Well......ummm....my name is Joey. 49 years old. Born and raised in Lynn, Massachusetts. Currently residing in.....well.....I wouldn't call it "residing" as much as it is spending time in Brooks, Alberta, Canada. Working right now as a carnival games worker, which I have done off and on for 19 years.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Do you guys really dip those dogs in water to make them go down easier ?!!!!

Re: Who is everone?

Absolutely. Dip them and you don’t have to chew the bun. Lol. I won with 16 in 10 minutes. I got second the next year with 17 and retired from competitive eating. I also ate the 5lb single wide burger from our local Hillbilly Hotdogs during my stretch. Broke the record at the time and ate it in just under 28 min. That was way worse than the hotdogs. Not even close.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Well, I'd have to say that "Carny" is the most interesting profession so far :-)

- The Sheik

Re: Who is everone?

I personally would have gone with " Competitive Eater" Sheik, but Carny is up there, all sorts of nasty, sleazy connotations with being a carny.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Chickenheads, I live outside of Morton, worked in Bloomington for years

Re: Who is everyone?

am i the only one who was bothered by the title of this thread being "Who is everone?" as opposed to "Who is everyone?" this has been driving me nuts and no one has even said anything or tried to correct it by changing the header when reposting

Re: Who is everon?

Haha. Yes I’ve noticed it every time!! Or should I say evertime. But it kind of grew on me and I decided to let it be a reminder to us all that nobody’s perfect - not even the Sheik! I also decided to take yet another letter out of the title for this post. Hay nobod’s prefect!! 🙃

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

That's it, im declaring war on canada for this, south park style

Re: Why is everyone?

I’ll do you one better.

Re: Who is everone?

Ok mcvn. Declaration of war accepted. First battle we’ll call “the battle of the NBA Finals”. Canada 1 USA 0. I’m hoping you’ll surrender now, since that’s about all I’ve got. 😂😂😂

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Damn - I never noticed the header glitch!!! And I'm far from perfect - just ask my 2 ex-wives !!

- The Imperfect Sheik

Re: Who is everyone?

The Sheik not perfect!!! Are y'all crazy!?

Re: Who is everone?

@tyk. Small world!

Re: Re: Who is everone?

I believe the NBA finals record is USA 68-Canada-1
Canada would be 1-0 this year I guess. Lol

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

The "A" in "am" should have been capitalized mcvn. Just sayin...

Re: Who is everyone?

Alyssa, or Lyssa, but online everyone shortens my name to Aly lol. Austin, TX, over on the East side. Soccer, softball and baseball were always my favorites growing up. watching the Women's World Cup now, its my favorite sporting event.

graduate student to get my masters in clinical mental health counseling, but also spend a lot of time with friends and my roommates. not working currently, trying to find a good job, but i was a barista for three years.

oh and i finally won a championship in this game! lol, that only took like 6 months i think xp

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

My name is Tim. I go by nycubsfan. So you can probably figure I am from NY (Jackson Heights, Queens) & am a diehard Cubs fan. Only sport I root for a team not in NY. I have lived in Houston since 1991 when I came here with my job at British Airways. I love sports, history, politics & my family. I have 2 beautiful, amazing daughters from my 1st marriage. I am remarried & will be 12 years in October. I have been playing for over a year & have won 3 titles. Love the game & am the guy who always willing to make a trade :)

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

Barista = Waitress
Flight Attendant = Sky Waitress

Re: Who is everyone?

The names Mike. I'm 51, grew up in St. Louis area, now live in Southern Indiana. Die hard Cards fan. Worked for STATS, Inc. scoring Cards games at Busch stadium when it was a start up. Seven kids, no grand kids. Can't remember when I started on PC, but I've been back about two years after a 4-5 year hiatus.

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

Where at in Southern Indiana Mike? I grew up in a little town (Mt. Vernon) just below Evansville.

- The Sheik

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

About 25 miles from IU.

Re: Who is everyone?

Down around the Bedford area? I'm somewhat familiar with that area.

- The Sheik

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Hey Now !!!! We prefer the term "showmen" rather then carnie...LOL.

Re: Who is everone?

Mike, I like that Cardinal story !
I grew up and still live in central Illinois , right in the middle of Cub, Bear , Bulls, Blackhawks country . Of course I’m for the Cards , Packers, Celtics , and Stanley Cup winning Blues !
I have 5 kids and soon to be 4 grandkids and Im a young 57 .
Been on PC for awhile , a lot of fun and some great people here .

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Joey don't you have some dust to spread on the tilt a whirl? Or are you barking for the Yak Lady tonight?

Re: Who is everone?

OUCH !!!!!

I don't work rides, I work games. Rides aren't worth the headache lol

Re: Who is everyone?

Or the gag reflex at certain times...

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

Name is Joe, age 32, live about an hour east of Cleveland, been a Cleveland Indians fan my whole life. Just started here on PC and mobile app last month, June 2019

Re: Who is everyone?

The Indians and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame - what more could you ask for ?

- The Sheik

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

I am Randy, from Niagara Falls, Canada. Reds fan also. Name was misspelled supposed to be Shamskyfan, for my hero Art Shamsky.

Re: Who is everyone?

My name is Steve, I'm 59 and started following baseball when I was 9. Got ahold of a baseball encyclopedia and started creating all-time teams of players going back to the 1800's. Formed what was then called a Rotisserie League in 1986. Lost faith with the strike of '94 and boycotted all things MLB for a couple of decades. I have now forgiven them - except for a few irredeemables like Pujols and Harper - and am really enjoying this site. I really like that salaries are not an aspect of this game because I'm clearly disenchanted with the capitalism aspect of pro sports as a fan. I live in Orlando, Florida and my favorite team is the Orioles who, by the way, were pretty damned good in 1969. :)

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

I'm Austin, I'm 22 and live in Scranton, PA. Been on PC on and off since early teens, with my biggest hiatus being between early 2016 and mid 2018 with my only access in that span being to keep my account from being deleted, since I didn't think I would be back so soon (I thought it would be at least a few more years lol)

I grew up a die hard Yankees fan, started early WAY back in 2002 at the age of 5! And life for me is REALLY complicated, so many family issues going on, but nothing completely out of control... All in all, really liking where I'm at these days, though! 😁

Edit: also just recently bought hardcover copy of Total Baseball 2004 edition off Amazon! Really good for stats junky like me! 😂😂

Re: Who is everyone?

Kyle, 31, lived in Chicago the last 6 years by way of Colorado. I lead a sales team during the day, and read/write/pennant chase/hang with my wife at night. Love this site, first found it when I was wasting time as a night auditor for a hotel in my early 20's, can't for the life of me remember what my username was at the time but I'm glad I circled back around after a hiatus.

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

Skooler, you're from Scranton ? I live outside of Wilkes-Barre. Grew up 40 minutes away from there, in Nanticoke... Now live in Mocanaqua...Small world.

Re: Who is everyone?

Jay my thoughts exactly! Read your post earlier and the first two words in my head: small world... Lol!

Funny part is I only have seen a select few railriders games over the years, despite living like a 1/2 hour drive away by car, if that! And they're the Yankees affiliate!! 🤣🤣🤣

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

My name is Nick but all of my friends call me Borg, short for my last name. I'm 31 and live about 30 minutes northwest of Chicago. I'm in restaurant management and I'm a DBacks fan. I started on PC in 2012 or 2013 and haven't looked back since.

Any of you every on your phones around your partners and they're like, "who are you texting" only for you to be on PC checking progressions or box scores? Always makes me laugh. Or they'll think you're checking out some other girl's instagram. "Nope, just want to see what FA bids I won" HAHA

Re: Who is everyone?

lol! Yeah, I get the "who are you texting" question all the time

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

Really glad to see this thread "resurrected" !! Thank's for contributing guys.

- The Sheik

Re: Who is everyone?

Hey Borg, I’m in Vernon Hills. What Suburb are you in. I use to be on PC years back. Just started back up.
My friends call me Fish

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

WHAT?! I work in Vernon Hills haha. I live near Gurnee. That's crazy!

Re: Who is everyone?

Marty, 47, from Baltimore/DC suburbs. Die hard Orioles/Ravens/Terps fan. High school administrator, youth baseball coach and rotisserie player. Been on PC about a year and learning a lot. Getting beat regularly in custom leagues by the likes of Mcvn, Jay, yankeebb and sheik, among many others, but enjoy the competition.

Re: Re: Who is everyone?

James, 52, live in central Oklahoma. Lived all over the USA as an adult, and also the Philippines as a child when Dad was in the USAF.

Played 1 season as a RF in 7th grade for a school that had never had a baseball team, and the coach knew less about baseball than the players. LOL! As you might guess, we sucked. hahaha!
Highlights of the 2-16 season?
We won two rain games cause the other team didn't show.
I knocked in the only 2 RBI's in a 2-31 slaughter.
Once I got a triple. On two errors.
Knocked out the catcher, because I didn't know how to slide, so I slammed into him like I was playing Linebacker. He dropped the ball, I was safe. w00t!
My error count was abysmal, because I had coke-bottle glasses and no depth perception. On the bright side, I had a .360 batting avg.

I hadn't paid attention to baseball since Randy Johnson was pitching for the Mariners, until Vonveezil here on PC kept talking about it to me constantly. I listened to John Fogerty's "Centerfield" and started following MLB again.

Then a year and half ago, I came here. Been ponying up the dough to have 50 teams, and it's been a worthy investment!

Just started my own Custom league, and the rest is still to come.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

to smithy35, just wanted you to know that you're not the only mail carrier out there. Live now in northern California but grew up about 30 miles west of St. Louis so I bleed Cardinal red. My handle is superdave (nickname from work) after Super Dave Osborn, a character from, I believe, an old HBO series.

Re: Who is everone?

Super Dave Osborn goes back to the late 1980's, which I think is before HBO. Sketch comedy show. In one episode, Super Dave is killed by a Dwight Gooden fastball if I remember correctly.

Anyway, my name is Nate, from Southern Ontario. I've been on PC for a couple of years now. I was recruited by a friend with whom I used to play APBA. Miss the old dice game, but this sure is a lot of fun.

Re: Re: Who is everone?

9/29 bip Random Chatter 1 0
A superdave classic that you can still find on youtube. It also featured some fine acting by Steve Garvey. The Canadian sketch show from the 80s superdave was on was called Bizarre. Great stuff. I used to watch it when not getting my butt kicked by ndekar in APBA.

Bip=john from ottawa, canada

I think i started on PC maybe 2-3 years ago. Time flies. Love the site. Huge, huge, huge kudos to gbacci for all he does. And appreciate the comraderie, strategy and friendly competition of PCers. Still dont like losing to ndekar :-)

Re: Who is everone?

This has the feels of a 12 step help program.

Hi, I'm Jim (hello Jim!). I've been on this site since 2012 (I think). I know that the league I run had a champion for 2012. My wife also asks me who I'm texting when I'm feverishly trying to run a free agency bid process on my phone in bed at 11pm.

I grew up in Northern Indiana but now Akron/Cleveland is my home. I am 46, and a Cubs fan who wasn't very popular in my area for the past few years in my 2016 world series hat! I was even on the news before game 1 of the '16 series getting grief from people before the game. I have been coaching my sons in baseball since 2004, though this is probably my last year doing that since my youngest is now in high school. All the more time to devote to PC!

Re: Re: Who is everone?

Super Dave Osbourne was actually a guy named Bob Einstein- he played Marty Funkhouser on " Curb your Enthusiasm" he recently passed away.
