I have missed the Wapcaplet.

I think I should still be allowed to gently haze new people.

Aw, shucks. Now, everyone, don't mind me--I'll just be over here trying to figure out why Mike Shannon insists on pronouncing Rasmus "Rass-muss."

Have we veered too far from the topic of New User Decorum yet?

Did you catch Randolph's pronounciation of Your-ee-be (Uribe) over the weekend? That was a good one, especially since Horton was good friends with his late uncle.

I know you didn't ask me, buuuuuuuuuuut Randolph really came through in the clutch on that ground ball to 3rd. I was talking before the game about how he butchers people's names (David Eckschteeeeeeen) with oblivious and repeated regularity. I think he pronounced Uribe's name four different ways . . . in a span of 5 seconds!

My sad tale:

After getting chastised for excessive non-work-related surfing back in 2007, I went cold turkey, deleted my bookmarks, and weaned myself off GWR except for some occasional lurking at my home computer. A year or so ago, restrictions were relaxed so I bookmarked the Post-Dispatch baseball page in order to check on Cardinals news frequently. Alas, the CT forums were right there, easily accessible, so, I have to admit, I partook.

It was horrible. Occasional moments of intelligent baseball talk were drowned in tidal waves of aholery and dooshbaggery--and it was even worse, as I'm sure some of you know, in the Current Affairs forum, where rational thought disappeared amidst the hand-wringing, the hysterics, the name-calling, the non sequiturs, and the creation of strawmen large enough to be seen from space. I thought it was bad during the run-up to the election, but it might actually be worse now.

Anyway. I can't guarantee I'll be a regular poster here (not that I was ever too regular), but I thought this thread would be a good place to state that this site is, once again, my forum of choice. The grass really is greener here because too many people are peeing on it over there.


Whoa, two things:

1) An Adrian Wapcaplet sighting!!! And he's coming back! Sweet!
2) You can tell he's been around from the beginning because of the whole GatewayRedbirds.com acronym contest...GRB or GWR? That was a huge battle at the beginning, and Adrian may have just stoked the fires!

Glad to have you back :)


That was literally the same path my mind went.

1) hey, AW!!
2) lol at GWR
