When you hit something head on at high speeds you go straight forward and your pelvis goes straight into the tank. Needles to say I ended up half the man I used to be after this wreck and my buddies started calling me halfsack :rolll after that it just stuck.

That hurt, just reading it. :shock:

first name initial, middle initial, last name, number in football in high school. Sadly there is no story behind that one.

I was one of the original Yahoo trolls. I had 50 alaises because Yahoo didn't require a phone number and text verification like they do now. This was the one I decided to keep.

Like my fishing username "BiteMyShinyMetalHook", it just popped into my mind one day--when I was practicing fast drawing at the mirror. I thought it was funny :rolll

It was different from every other username I've ever had.

Unfortunately it was only after I told my wife out loud what it was that I really recognized how "Hey kid, want some candy?" It came off as.

I have had the nickname "tater" since high school, after I hit a home run playing baseball. It was the only HR I ever hit, and it was an inside the park HR. Our coach said "Lil' Paul got himself a tater!" ... and it stuck.
