  • 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.

                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.

                              Username - it was given to me. I used to be really into riding mountain bikes long distances, and I always kept gummi bears in my jersey pocket to nibble on while riding to keep up the sugar levels. They all told me I'd turn into one, and eventually I did.

                              Avatar - The Aardvark, from "The Ant & The Aardvark". Some of you are old enough to remember that cartoon (came on with the Pink Panther and Inspector Clouseau ). He was always trying to outsmart that darned Ant, and had some funny adventures. I feel like the golfball is the Ant sometimes, and I'm the Aardvark. So, OK, there you go...
                              I like to think of myself as a student of the game... it's just too bad that I'm in special ed.
