I had it on last year and removed it for this year because it was widely felt that the only person who deserved to be on it was papajim.

If my joke went over your head, I will try to convince myself that it was because you were too tired from slaving away at work today. Perhaps you deserve a Blowie today. :eek:

But I do agree, there hasn't been a papajim type guy this year who brought a bunch of us together in a positive way.

[QUOTE=Strasburg;3846226]Jesus, my great grandfather just passed. I called him papa jim...[/QUOTE]

So you had a great grandfather named Jesus, but you called him papa Jim? I am so confused right now.

I'd also like to say that we've had a lot of moments good and bad during the year. The tragic news of bballcardkid4 is something that I'll remember for a long time. Migraine and his non card threads and I also feel like weve gotten to know people a bit better around here
