I grew up with a father who loved golf, and much of my ill spent youth was spent cutting school and heading for the golf course to compete with my friends. I had a reasonably good amateur record, but two tours in Vietnam squelched any hopes of turning pro. I just turned 70 and only infrequently can shoot my age, but most of the time I'm try to shoot my Username, EVNPAR. Please describe the meaning of your username.

Well...before the internet, kids used to play these things called "board games".

I'm not joking! They'd move stylized pieces across a cardboard surface... hahaha!

One of my favorite board games was STRATEGO. Its online version (at ItsYourTurn.com) was SABOTAGE. I found it when I first discovered the internet...back when you had to know HTML code if you wanted a web page.

Anyway, a prominent piece in this game was the SABOTEUR. I was quite good at this game so I selected SABOTEUR as my username. The "w" tacked on the end is the first letter of my last name (Washington).

Hard to believe I've carried this username (or just "SABOTEUR") for more than 20 years.

My username is my nickname. My friends and family have always called me "Beau", so I felt comfortable using it as my username when I joined this forum.

My username could come from one of two things 31 years of government service or I just like using vintage Gillette razors.

Nothing fancy to mine.  My first name is Pete and my username is Pete123.

I think people's names are important, after all that's how the rest of the world identifies us,  and that getting their name correctly is a sign of respect.

Nikos is my name. A is the first letter of my last name. Pretty simple I guess.

I got my username from a Soviet composer named Boris Vladimirovich Asafiev. He wrote a Sonata for trumpet and piano in 1939. I performed that piece as an undergraduate and enjoyed the challenge and personality of the piece. So... when looking for a username in college I used the name of one of my favorite composer's at that time period in my life.

Mines pretty simple. My first name is Freddie and P is the fist letter in my last name. The 318ti is the model BMW I've always wanted as a kid and by luck and happenstance, currently own. Smile

CHSeifert - I did try to ask the moderators to change my username to VikignShaver a couple of years ago, but they said it would be too complicated to move all my posts and transfer it all to a new user account, so instead they were kind enough to add VikingShaver just under my username, and I still appreciate that gesture highly  Thumbup

My first name is Claus
Middle name is Henrik
Last name is Seifert

BMX racing is the only sport that holds my interest.  Most of my adult life I was teased that it was a "kiddie hobby."  But it's now in the Olympics and more awesome to watch than ever.  I don't get to participate nearly enough anymore.  Partly because of not being close to a track, partly because it REALLY hurts a lot longer when I crash!

My real name is Keith. My user name is GreeneMD, due to many people in the past have told me I looked like Dr Greene from ER. Silly as it may sound. Now people say I look like Walter White when I shave my head.

In High School I played in the band and picked up the nickname, "El Drako".  100 years ago, when it came time to choose my AOL name, I combined that with my first two initials to make redrako.

Mine is a nickname I earned in college.  I could be one lazy b@st@rd at times.  A roommate walked in one day, saw me reclined in my favorite chair and proclaimed, "what a lounge lizard!"  It stuck with me through the rest of college, and I've used it as a nickname ever since.

Mine is the pirate name my niece gave me at her birthday many years ago.

It was pirate themed and I told her I didn't have a pirate name.

That's the day I became Skinny Rogers.

My first name is James ( I go by Jim)
My last name is Robson
At the time I joined, I thought that I was the 5th James Robson. 

A conversation with my uncle at my brothers wedding, informed me that I'm closer to #10 but I would have to do some digging to find out.
I might do that one day.
