    Explain your board name

    So it seems this subject seems to be coming up a lot in various threads.... inquiries by the veterans as well as the noobs (noobs to the site and surely not to the Black and Gold Nation). Nice break topic during this offseason....

    so fess up. Inquire or expound. This is the thread to do it. My board name derivation? I'm the most jovial Scandinavian in Steeler fandom. :P

    Since this is now its own thread:

    So it was a tribute to two of my loves ... the Steelers and Lost.

    I was in high school when Derek Zoolander became a star. In that movie, he is called D Rock by Owen Wilson's character.

    My friends took that as a cue to refer to me as D Rock. Taa-daa!

    Re: Explain your board name

    Well, my name comes from my wife who once said I was Steeler Crazy. I am so intense on game days and during the game no one likes to watch the game with me in my house and I prefer to be alone. When something goes wrong I get really upset and act like a five year old child. When something goes right I act like a contestant getting picked to play "The Price Is Right"..........

    I've tried to calm myself for others sake but I cant for long.....When I was a kid I used to cry in anger when the Steelers lost so I guess I'm not going to change, therefore, I am SteelCrazy.

    Re: Explain your board name

    My username is like Lost - it's up to you to decide.

    My most recent explanation:

    I'm paying homage to my fast food working bretheren and my hometown of Pittsburgh. My name started out as flippingburghers (note the h in burgers which gives my shout out to Pittsburgh). Also I figured no one else would use the Ronald McDonald avitar (misspelled for MJG) and I'm always clowning around. But since it was a lot to type flippingburghers, it got shortened to flippy. Someone else called me flippy and it just stuck.


    Although I like some of Jigga's theories - gymnast, angry motorist, house flipper...


    My wife would probably say it's cause I constantly change my mind.


    I can also switch hit.

    I like flap jacks.

    I prefer sandals.

    I'm known for my temper and constantly flipping out.

    And I'm often found swaggin.

    My brother calls me siss, hence the name siss.
