    So, does your username mean something special? Explain how you came up with it. I'll get started...

    Nalt is an acromymn for North ALabama Tider. Pretty easy...

    Next?

    I’ll be your Huckleberry. Not too hard to figure out..started my flight career as an AFROTC Cadet at UF many, many, many (did I say many?) years ago. Still flying around the world, proudly wearing my UF gear wherever I go.

      My birthdate is 5/1/51, years ago 2002 to be exact I was registering for the other Gator site. Gator51 was already taken so I tried Gator5151 unbelievably it too was taken so I figured at the time I was 51 years of age so I added the 3rd 51.

        Yessir. I fly the B-777 for a major international cargo carrier. AFROTC = Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corp. We occupied the top floor of Van Fleet Hall. The Navy, Army and Marines occupied the other floors.

            Got the nickname ‘Bart’ while attending UF when the Simpson’s first came out in the late 80s on the Tracy Ullman Show. I had spiky hair and acted like Bart. I also dressed in blue shorts and faded T-shirts a lot. It’s a nickname that has stuck for 30+ years, but my name isn’t really Bart.

                This username was my alt account I made during Zook's last year as head coach here. It was an homage and gallows humor for the man who had no friends.

                After getting numerous private messages from board members (including a couple of psychologists) asking me if I needed someone to talk to because they thought I was depressed on account of my username, I decided to just roll with this account as my main ever since.

                    I wanted to use my real name which is Ryan Joseph but it was already taken so I just picked the name zambo out of thin air.

                      It's great to be a Florida Gator.

                      I'm a Florida Gator, so . . .

                          So seriously, my original username on aol was bradgator. I was at UF in 96 on a 14k modem when that became a thing. I used to love those original chat rooms.

                          With you guys knowing my sense of humor, it should be obvious that username got banned.

                          So did bradgator1 :lol:

                            But of course! I should have seen immediately how that inspired "Fodderwing". Silly me.

                                There was a short moment here where people tried to guess what TLB stood for. Their guesses are way better than reality, but I'll share anyways.

                                I was one of those quiet guys in HS and on a road trip with the soccer team one of our guys found a pen with the Skoal Bandit logo on it. He started spinning up a story about how the reason they never saw me with a girl is that I was sly and getting loving from all the women on the side. He dubbed me "The Love Bandit", and I've kept it for nigh 35 years now. It's my main online screen name, though I shorten it to TLB to somewhat obscure the meaning. I also maintain the Snoopy image on sites I frequent, but there isn't a lot of cross over between the sites I frequent. The "Joe Cool" image is reflective of me wishing I was cooler than I was throughout most of my life.

                                Side story, I've mentioned at times I work with another site that goes under the name bluelight, which we shorten to BL most of the time. It's a bunch of drug users trying to counsel each other and save lives. Over the years, we used to have pretty big meet ups, typically at rave events. As a means to identify each other by our screen names, I wrote TLB on my hand as everyone would know that from the site. But, I got the smart idea to draw a lightbulb with blue ink over it to help others recognize (yes, I was high at the time). One guy looks at my hand, looks at me, then asks "You are The Light Bulb?" smh....better than "You are Tomato Lettuce Bacon?"

                                        Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.

                                        The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
