Thanks CJ#4!

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- In looking forward to the upcoming Flyer hoops season, one of the things that “FTS” had planned to do was write a series of profiles on all of the new players. Because, quite obviously, the majority of the roster are guys The Flyer Faithful have never seen in Red and Blue. Well, I can scratch that off my “to do list” as UD Pride MB poster CJ#4 has tackled that task for us and he/she (don’t want to assume gender) is off to a flying start.

Keep up the good work, CJ#4!

A little Sopranos trivia for ya: Remember Christopher, Tony’s right hand guy. His last name was Moltisanti, which in Italian translates to “many saints.”

Thanks, Swampy. Interesting read about Steely Dan and Jean Shepherd.

Words I had to look up: metonymic, manichean, inchoate, cryptids, agitprop, and sui generis.

Who'd a thunk I'd expand my vocabulary from a basketball message board?
