Welcome to the forum man, I think we are going to get along great on here.hi guys, it's me the "Gent". I don't plan on getting booted. I just got sick of themat. many of my former compadres seem to be over here.
a little history of me and BanBasketball: he was going unchallenged over on themat.com spewing leftwing drivel about conspiracies - 9/11 being an inside job, W. being a fascist, Rush Limbaugh responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing, Katrina levees being an inside job with Dick Cheney... etc. etc.
Folks, I could not take it. I finally verbally abused him into submission, completely owned him intellectually, factually, and in reality.... This opposing force really threw him for a loop and he had a hard time coping with someone other than a Matt Damon-Barbara Streisand-Al Franken worldview.
And the last straw was when he continued to question, in a public forum, my wrestling credentials. He strongly stated he 'knew for a fact' I have never wrestled. When I countered him with the fact that I did wrestle he vehemently denied this, AGAIN stating he knows "for a fact" I have never stepped foot on a mat.
Well, long story short - I told him I was an Iowa high school state runner-up, 2X placewinner... IIAC Champion in college, 2X NCAA All-america D3.
He AGAIN called me a liar until the infamous CoachSparky confirmed everything I said, as Sparky and I are from the same town in Iowa. Well, the coward Banbasketball would never apologize for slandering me and was not man enough to admit his mistake.
However, that is because he is an extraordinarily small person and is incapbale of such an act. It is part of his yellow-dna.
Be that as it may, it is water under the bridge. I hold no ill-will. I just thought I would shed some light unto the puzzle that is the foaming-from-the-mouth-banbasketball.
