    Usernames, Signature Pics and Avatars

    This is always fun. Explain your user name and avatar.

    I started using "ClairefromClare" on a web site for an Irish protest rock & roll band. Family lore has it we came from County Clare during the great hunger. I eventually learned that's incorrect, but by then it was my username.

    Used to have Juli Inkster as my avatar, but the guys at the Frat Party wanted someone better looking. Big surprise there. So this is Helen Alfredsson; I switched to her after she won the Evian.

    Smallville.

    Big Superman fan since I was a little kid. Clark Kent grew up in Smallville, and Smallville is "supposed to be" in Kansas.

    On the new Superman show (aptly named, "Smallville," Lois calls Clark Smallvile - - -I liked that and started using it as my username. The avatar is, or should be, self-explanatory.

    Before that any time I needed a username, I used "Good To Go" or some variation of that because I am a NASCAR fan. Good to go means everything's ready, let's go racing!

    I explained this in response to another thread but Grogger31 comes from:

    My tournament softball team was at a National Championship and I led off for my team. I got in the box and the announcer says:

    "Leading off and playing shortstop ... #31 ... Matt [unintelligible]grogger"

    He butchered the first part of my last name and "grogger" isn't anywhere near the letters in the rest of my last name.

    The guys on my team were all falling off the bench laughing at me. I stepped out of the box and looked up at the guy. He covered the microphone, leaned out of the booth, and said "Sorry about that dude!"

    That was 8 years ago and all the guys still call me Grogger.

    That is Will Ferrell in a hilarious Saturday Night Live sketch. If you ever hear anybody quoting a line that involves a cowbell, it is probably in reference to the following skit (which you should really watch in it's entirety):

    Congrats to Helen! What a great year she's having!

    Re: My Username and Avatar - I began using these when LPGA.com had message boards - at least 10 years ago. Seems silly to me now, but it's still accurate (SF is still home) and it still gives folks a chuckle.
