Awww, vito, that's nice. Thanks for the shout out. Next time we try to meet in an airport, I'll know what you look like. ;-) Cheers.

Heh. I figured somebody would see that. I just wanted y'all to know that I'm still around, even though I don't comment much. The level of discourse around here has gotten very good and people have inevitably made the brilliant points that I intend to make by the time I get around to reading the threads. Lots of good new informed folks! So sorry to anybody I missed and Happy Holidays to all. And Jeter did win the Gold Glove for shortstops, didn't he? Or did I misspeak there?

Ha! Vito, somehow I knew you'd have an earring. I kind of figured you for the full goatee thing, but I should have known you'd have a soul patch. Awesome. Your comments are missed around here, by the way. Also, Jeter sucks asses.

Jeter did win (*cough* Michael Young *cough*). Thanks again vito! btw, sorry about the typo in my post. I was a bit hungover and in a hurry to get to Texas Pinball Festival 2004 (no, I'm not kidding).

Next time we try to meet in an airport, I'll know what you look like. ;) and by an airport, he means "your bedroom where I'll be hovering over your bed breathing heavy" That whacky worldcup!

Jesus, looking at the picture of me reminds me of a joke. Why do Greek men wear gold chains? So they know where to stop shaving.

LOL, vito. I did notice you were rather the hirsute gentleman. As for you, j-girl ... (:-P) ... I think dusted has it just about right. A little background: vito was on his way to Japan via SFO and thought it would be cool to do an airport breakfast meetup. Somehow, it didn't work out. I can't remember why. Anyways, now I'll know I'm looking for the hairy guy with the chains. Hoohoohoo.

worldcup, at the last minute we were able to take a flight that was non-stop to Seattle so we bypassed the Bay. I really think a SpoFi meetup in Vegas for a big time sporting event would be the balls. First round of March Madness or NFL Semifinals or something.

I'm going to Vegas the first weekend of December, how about then? Otherwise no Vegas for me most likely until last third of next year due to other travel.
