Don't worry wolfpack ... I was able to mesh in pretty easily. Besides, you'd fit in quite well.

I resent the fact that you feel I wasn't calm enough. You trying holding still with your back arched like that.

Well, I'm a transplanted North Carolinian. I've been in LA for about 10 years now, so I'd welcome some east coast updates.

Unfortunately for you, I'm also a Tar Heel (class of 93) so you may have to put up with some barbs, you know, when Hansbrough drops 32 on your team or when you only manage 11 points in the first half, that sort of thing

meh. i can take the barbs; i don't think they will ever be able to compete against teams like carolina/duke/etc. they just never seem to have the team thing going on.

wooo-hooo.

ummm, yea, what's this initiation thing y'all talkin' 'bout? i'm sure i'm up for the task unless it involves steep climbing, cause i don't climb well. yet. do i have to fly out to SoCal for the initiation?

yea, and jason is a sweetheart isn't he?

it's ok Voltman, not everyone will want to adopt me. but here, have a couple...(((((hugs))))) my hugs are good. feel better now?

I think my initiation was riding on Tour de SB II. It was a blast ... plus I got in a century that day. Riding back on Amtrak with everyone was really cool.

That is a great ride, Ron. But, no, that wasn't your initiation. You just don't remember it and I'm sure not going to remind you.

No, that wasn't a BF ride. That's PU's gig, and they aren't really initiating you, just giving you the opportunity to suffer for the pure joy of it.

Does the initiation involve aliens and some sort of probing?

hmmm... I'm not sure how I feel about an NC State fan. Still, it's better than being a North Carolina fan.
