Annual BTSC “Get To Know Each Other” Thread!

*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

Bumped to front page. It’s one of our favorite times of the offseason when this thread rolls back around. -barnerburner


How this works:

Basically, you tell all of us here as much about yourself as you feel comfortable doing on the intrawebs. (Read: Don’t put your actual address, social security number, yadda yadda yadda.)

I’ll start the festivities…

I am Spike.

34 years old

I’m a Gemini

I live in the Great NorthWET. Yeah, Seahawks country…Lemme tell ya, that invokes some interesting conversations at my favorite bar when anyone finds out I’m a Steeler fan.

I have two awesome kids. One is 3 and my youngest turned 1 a little over 2 months ago.

I do ironwork construction and am a maintenance millwright.

I’ve been working with big pieces of metal or hazardous chemicals for 10 years.

I’m pretty much covered in tattoos.

I enjoy playing Magic: The Gathering and have no less than 15 decks that will beat yours any day of the week. I played in the Stronghold pre-release tournament. People in the know about Magic will understand how long I’ve been playing.

I am in a band. I play bass in said band, but I’ve only been playing bass for 2 years. I got my first 6 string guitar when I was 11, and 23 years later, I’m not much better than when I started…LOL.

I have been a die hard Steelers fan since 1995. And, no, before you ask, it was because they drafted Kordell Stewart, NOT because they went to the Super Bowl. He was supposed to be more electrifying than Neon Deion…Well, we all know how that worked out…But it made me a fan of the best team in all of sports.

Well, there you have it. Those are basically what everyone wants to know, if you think I left anything out, don’t be afraid to say so and ask if you want to know.


Include a pic if you want.
