    A Milestone of 2000

    I've been at Cricketweb for just under a year now and my time has been filled with fond memories. For moths after joining I did not post and then I realized how truly interesting the forum is. Since then, I've been hooked. Now for my 2000 post I shall say something meaningful. I will relate my life's story....

    "Well it all started in 1987 - 15 years ago....15 of the best years of my life. Why, when I was but a wee toddler I remember...............

    ........and he said, "No. It's the rubber chicken." We laughed and laughed. Yep those were the days. My uncle died immediately after and we cried for days. Yes it was a sad and..........

    .........and then I said, "that's no rubber chicken, that's a pig." We laughed and laughed. Then the pig ate my little brother.........................
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Once you get the bug, things just tend to escalate!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    i think theres a much more important issue here, the making of his own tribute thread.
    there needs to be rules, i have no problem with 1, but this could get out of hand.
    cloete take notice :P

    I wanted to put it in the bar, but Marc didn't give me permission. :P

    I especially liked the part about the moths.

    Yes another tribute thread......... I think agemaster or Rich2002 is to blame when he started one for Luckyeddie......BTW LE you are to blame as well

    Wow- today I'm just giving out blames, yes and I also blame Reuben ( Lord) for starting the business of posting a lot of posts.......although his rates back then are nothing to be compared to the ones held by Marc and Rik now !
    Actually I remember a time when the only people with more than 1000 posts were Lord (reuben) and Marc....... Wow I've been here for a long long time.....wouldn't trade any of the moments visiting this site for anything !

    I blame Durban.

    None of you will understand that one bit, but it goes back to the days when Derby County were the best team in England by a mile (1972-1976).

    Every football crowd has a player they 'love to hate' - from your own team that is, usually someone whose contribution goes unnoticed by the run-of-the-mill fans.

    We had one at Derby - a guy called Alan Durban. One of those 'ten years ahead of his time' type players. Well, if anything went wrong, you'd always hear some sections of the crowd moaning - "Durban this, Durban that, Durban should have closed him down."

    Anyway, if I'm with any old mates in the pub and something happens (e.g. a pint got spilled), the recriminating glances will go round. Someone's still likely to say "It wasn't me - it was Durban."

    Perhaps you had to be there.

    That's right - then a couple of my 'anti-Scorpio spats' got deleted and left me on 997.
