Yes... I think that's why Publus added the  :-\ smiley.

Hey Titan...
I'm very fond of Melbourne, as my parents lived there for three years (Black Rock, to be precise).  We're excited to have Alana join us for the next few years.  If you know of some footie players who might be a good addition to our American football team, that would be awesome.  Anyways, crack open a VB and some Tim tams.

VB is disgusting - Melbourne Bitter would be my choice  ;) But I can't say anything negative about Tim Tams, other than that it's annoyingly difficult to find them in the US.

I love VBs in stubby bottles.  only can have them now on rare occasions at the Aussie Embassy in DC.  usually no MBs to be found there either.

Best part of the Christmas in D.C. is the Aussies' take on decorations:

Friday night happy hours at the Embassy are stellar


Re: Introductions - ThePassionOfTheChryst - 01-16-2015

I figure this is the best place for this question.  I briefly searched the board and couldn't find an answer.

I'm fairly new here.  Why does my "karma" keep going down?  Not that it's a big deal, but I'm not exactly sure how it works.

People have been down voting your posts. Welcome to the club.


Re: Introductions - garvin - 01-17-2015

Don't take it personally. The voting is -- barring the occasional "Stanford sucks" post from a troll -- mostly arbitary and irrational. I lost several points the other day for saying Stanford's record would have been better in 2000 if we hadn't lost the starting quarterback to injury for several games. Even if you disagree with that position, it hardly seems contentious enough to curse somebody's karma over.

But I bet I lose some more points for repeating it.


Re: Introductions - CornFed - 01-17-2015

It's mostly like the comedy improv show, "Whose Line Is It Anyway".  Everything is made up and the points don't matter!

(I'll probably get some down votes for saying "everything is made up".  I didn't say it, OK?  It's the tag line of the show.  I just wanted to get a lighter Karma going about karma points.)


Re: Introductions - winflop - 02-11-2015

1980s grad here, joined after getting a little tired of the same old, same old on the Bootleg boards.  I've had football season tix since 1998 when I moved back to the Bay Area, and I had MBB season tix for a while but dropped those a few years ago when family schedules changed and I got a lot less interested with the quality of play on the court (not the quality of players).

My hopes for Stanford sports in 2015:
- another Director's Cup and maybe a Capital One Cup or two as well
- football changes the gameplan and playcalling to fit the personnel.  If the defense can sustain this is a team that could challenge for a playoff spot
- MBB gets a new head coach
- WBB rights the ship next season and gets back to being the Beast of the West

My Stanford history:
- Madera (frosh).  Now named Junipero
- Toyon (soph). Friends with World Figure Skating Champion Debi Thomas.  Can you say Thumper Night?
- Whitman (junior & senior)
- Majored in Math Sciences with Honors in Statistics

Hi Winflop! I have seen you in the Twittersphere before so nice to see you here. Welcome to the board.


Re: Introductions - yvonne - 02-11-2015

Hi Winflop. Welcome!


Re: Introductions - garvin - 02-11-2015

Welcome aboard!


Re: Introductions - JJJ - 06-19-2015

Hi Everyone,
1985 grad introduced here by leftcoast. I've only just begun reading here so please be patient with all my faux pas. IE major, lived in Roble 3yrs, then off-campus. Attended many football/basketball/baseball games while on campus (best job ever was getting paid to watch baseball games and ensuring that foul balls were returned to the field!), but only the occasional homecoming game at reunions since. Having to make do with viewing parties the rest of the time. 
Hoping this forum will help me make it through the Cardinal-less summer months!


Re: Introductions - CornFed - 06-19-2015

Welcome JJJ!  Hopefully your faux pas (what is the plural of that - faux pez?  faux pass?) will draw attention away from those that I commit fairly regularly.  But if nothing else you will perhaps learn a number of alternative histories of the Civil War.  Good luck and God bless.

The plural is identical, je crois.

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?  :P


Re: Introductions - Leftcoast - 06-19-2015

Welcome, JJJ.  Good to have a fellow "Class of 85er" on board. 

Summer is the sports silly season where almost anything may come up as we all gear up for the start of the football season and (to quote the line from Casablanca), "wait .... and wait .... and wait".  We haven't had a good Civil War discussion for a while nor a replay of the 15 year ago debate on Uma vs Dana.  On the other hand there has been a rousing discussion of gourmet coffee roasting and grinding as well as a discussion of best songs of 2015 thus far.    You know, typical sports stuff.

Thanks Lefty. I may be in well over my head. Best to be quiet for a while as I figure out the lay of the land!
