    I have an idea, how about retiring people's avatars when they pass?

    I had five bypasses twenty-two years ago. Lost forty percent of my heart muscle. They say heart muscle can't be re generated. That is a big lie. I have proof mine was. I am back playing tennis, singles, back at a competitive level, 4.0. I am 71 expecting to live a long time. And I get to enjoy the Gators a few more years. God is good!

    Added note: if I am playing a Seminole fan I play at a 4.5 level. I believe the Gators will react the same way this year.

        Sad to hear. We read and hear about death all the time these days. When a death occurs within your circle - even a "virtual" circle like GCMB - it hits harder, obviously.

        I don't know who Hotrod was, but we are a bit worse off without him - one less voice that shared the one common interest we all share - a passion for Gator football. I hope he's found eternal peace on the other side, and that his loved ones find comfort as they grieve for him.

          I send out a monthly email to members that haven't logged in for a long time. It shows a list of recent threads and asks them to jump back into the fray. Evidently, a relative of Hotrod was monitoring his email and replied with the news.

          Message boards are funny things. Generally speaking, we don't know each other personally yet feel a strange closeness, strange enough that when someone passes it hits harder than you'd ever believe. I appreciate anyone who takes time out of their day to contribute to the board, that's why I try and offer recognition whenever possible, such as birthday threads.

          There are members here in which I disagree with in almost every aspect of life, yet it would bother me if they were suddenly gone. There's a connection there that has been built on years and years of near-daily interaction....all with our love for the Gators as our foundation.

            The longer I live, the more people I know get pulled... at least it's to a safe and peaceful place.
