I agree. He made some good points on things and caused me to at least rethink preconceived ideas even when I disagreed. I didn't find him nearly as obnoxious as other posters who have been banned in the past.

I enjoy Encylopedia Steelerannica. He never seems to forget anything and having him around helps my own memory sometimes. :)

Sure, he's got his hangups, we all do. I feel bad the guy has struggles with social interaction. Some of the other "knobs" (not pointing fingers, I know I'm one of the biggest 'knobs" on the board) around here push him over the edge. And that's unfortunately the problem. If some folks didn't have to push him over the edge, we could have just gotten the good out of him without all the crap.

Flippy does not believe any of this really. Otherwise he might be implying the board owner is a "knob" and that might get Flippy banned. And Flippy wants to sincerely express his gratitude to the owner of PlanetSteelers for creating a fun and mostly 'knob" free community. :)

It is very hot. Not sure of the flexibility of your schedule but try to do some of the non-Disney stuff. There are places not far where you can go on airboat rides through swamps. Kids love that. Also don't discount Gatorland. One of the older attractions but it is worth a day. If you have any questions send me a persoanl message and I'll try to answer them.

But I almost never make posts in response to a point I agree with.

Crash always makes me come out of hibernation.

I thoroughly enjoy debating the dude and eventually getting under his skin, and he would start name calling. That is why I took on the name "Lemming" a his favorite insult for me on the old board. I see that as a sign of frustration and an indicator that his argument is weak.

He just takes this stuff way too seriously and eventually says something to get himself in trouble. Gotta keep things civil so it is understandable.

Well it was fun while it lasted. :)

To me, Crash is like an old musical instrument that you used to play in junior high school, but never threw out and stored in the attic...

One day, you find it, take it out of the case, and cause it to make some terrible noises, just for fun...

Then, you get bored with playing it and throw it back in the case for awhile...until you find it again and forget about the terrible racket it made last time...

And the cycle repeats...

My kids and I tan (for the most part). However, my wife is pale with freckles, so she BURNS.

We are going to spend 4 days in the 4 Disney Parks, 2 days in the 2 Universal Parks, and likely a day at a water park to break up the neverending heat wave I expect.

The wife and I went to Disney when we were in Florida several years ago during January. We did every major attraction in 1 day at all 4 parks. But no water parks for us :)

It was pretty awesome, we literally had 0 crowds and walked right onto every ride/attraction without a wait. The only wait was 20 minutes for the roller coaster in the Animal Kingdom.

We had to hustle to do everything. My wife wanted to kill me when I had her in the Swiss Family Robinson tree house in the pitch dark. I think it was actually closed when we went through :)

Typhoon Lagoon is the best water park. Avoid Wet and Wild. It can be kinda sketchy.

Expect to be surrounded by Brazilian and English tourist and tour groups. The Universal Parks are the most fun.

How they dress in Brazil is not how they dress at Disney. They are all about groups of 20-30 teenagers all dressed in the same color t shirt following someone holding up a same colored flag. Sorry to shatter any fantasies. Besides the Disney "family values police" would never permit anything too risque.

Not sure where you get your information from, but Blizzard Beach has a much higher 3rd down completion percentage than Typhoon Lagoon. Also, Hines Ward once owned a bankrupt concession stand in Typhoon Lagoon.

Seriously Ruthless, in my experience the Magic Kingdom is a must, followed by Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and then Animal Kingdom.

Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach is kind of a toss up. We usually go to Typhoon Lagoon though. Never been to Wet n' Wild, but as Ovi said it looks sketchy.
I went to Aquatica once and wouldn't go back again if Shamu stroked my dorsal fin.

Haven't been to Universal in a while Haha, I think the last time I was there they still had the back to the future ride. Island of Adventure is awesome, however last
time I was there the lines were ridiculous and I would have bought their version of the fast pass if I would have known. If you do that, get them in advance or as soon as you enter the park
because they sell out quickly.

Wow... He's like the TO of message boards!! Wears out his welcome wherever he goes.
He's been banned multiple times from the Scout.com message boards, but they can't seem to eradicate him there. Same with another person who he always gets into long-winded arguments with there. The problem with both of those people is that they don't know when to shut up and they never stop arguing. They always have to have the last word, so you end up with various different topics getting derailed and going on for 10+ pages until they're either locked, or they take their disagreements to another topic.

Have you ever agreed with somebody on a certain topic, yet you hated listening to them argue your stance? That's how I felt about him. And while I've been one of the more ardent defenders of Ben Roethlisberger, I'm not one to elevate him above the Rooney family, Dick LeBeau or Todd Haley. He's merely a player, the lowest on the totem pole among all the people I just mentioned. Is he important to the team? Absolutely. But the Steelers have been one of the NFL's flagship franchises since before he was even born.

I agree with you, there is a lot of good in Crash. I always found him to be very intelligent and knowledgeable and enjoyed his different perspective on topics.

however, you can't go and challenge the mods and tell the owner to go f*** himself, that will get you banned from a message board.

I think we'll aim for the Sunday night game against Baltimore on 11-18-12, because primetime games give everyone the most time to hang out beforehand.

I'll be at the Iggles game too, but since it is a standard 1:00 start, I have to get up before the sun rises just to make it to Pittsburgh before noon (i.e. not much time to mingle prior to kickoff).

Id like to go to that game and meet the group, considering the world is sposed to end in December and I have never yet been to a Steelers game. Plus Baltimore would be a good one to pop my cherry. Is it possible to get tickets for the whole group to sit together? If not, whats the best way to acquire one?

For the Planet Tailgate games, a bunch of us usually stand together on the rail of one of the rotunda ramps all game (SN1 has his spot behind the goalposts, and some folks have tried to hang with his posse down there, but that tends to get quite crowded). By standing together on a rotunda, you can buy single seats in crappy sections for cheap (relatively) prices, since it does not matter where the seats themselves are located, since we won't actually be sitting in them. I've done this before with Jigawatts, Asian, Iron Shiek, Buckeyehoppy...

I've met several of the folks from the board in person at games (Asian, costanza, SN1, Jiga, MJG, stlrz_d, Iron Shiek, NCSteelerfan, SanAntonioSteelerFan, AkronSteel, Columbussteelerfan, among others)...all are respectful on the board, and are good people in person. I've even met some Sirius NFL Radio guys like the Commish (Brandon from Missouri) and the Big Fella (Adrian from the Burgh) at games. I always wondered what it would be like if someone who is known for douchebaggery on the board just randomly showed up to one of our tailgates in person.

Aw, dude, thanks for remembering me! :lol:

I don't get online much, but I do remember feeling pretty appreciated when you hunted me and my friends down in the nosebleed section of the endzone at that cleveland game. I guess I was so surprised I really never said thanks for reaching out and wish we could have talked more.

On another message board I got to meet quite a few people at Sharkey's (in Latrobe for training camp) for a few years. It was a fascinating experience getting to meet some of the board membersactually, as I not only met one of my best friends, I found out how much of an aschole one of them really was!

I suppose it's like a box of chocolates...you never know what you're gonna get! ;)

Bring on football season!!!!

Well, I'm up in those nosebleed seats myself, so it wasn't much of a journey to stop by for a short visit. I didn't even have to climb up or down any steps...just scoot over a section or so. My son was with me for that game (usually it's my father), and he wanted to know where the heck we were going (he's too young to post on a message board).

Just be glad I didn't call you "SteelHeel" or another poster from North Carolina like I confused ColumbusSteelerFan and buckeyehoppy earlier. ;)

So when will the Ravens game be officially ordained as the PlanetSteeler get together? Those of us without any ticket connections may need to start planning soon if we are to attend.

Our gracious host SteelerNation1 agreed that Primetime game against the Ratbirds on 11-18-12 would be great for the Planet Tailgate back on the schedule release thread:

I have season tix, so I've never bought them anywhere else. If you plan to just hang out with a bunch of us on one of the verandas, then you can just buy the cheapest possible seats available from a scalper (doesn't matter where the seats are, as long as you get in). If you prefer to have them in hand well in advance (or if you only want to hang out with the group before the game and then go sit in actual seats during the game), I suppose that you could go with the TicketExchange through Steelers.com or Stubhub (both could get pricey for a primetime game against a rival like the Ravens, I would think). Anyone out there who actually has experience buying Steelers tickets on the secondary market have any more specific suggestions?
