Thanks for the invite. I suggest you add Carla to your list as well. She's a good person.

Sorry about the blow-up. What you are witnessing is one person who has multiple sign-on names. He has conversations with himself on Fan Comments, making out that he has support for his antagonistic views - hence the nickname "Sybil." Once upon a time he was a decent guy. Lives in Virginia Beach and was "friends" with a number of both Boston and Yankee fans. Somehow it got ugly around mid-season last year. A number of us approached the moderator and had many of his posts removed. That didn't go over well, but you gotta do what you gotta do. He was blessedly absent all spring, but appears to have come back. I normally ignore him until he starts doing what he did the last few games, which is trolling on the Red Sox site. I lit into him when he started calling Carla a "hussy." Very strange how some take it as an affront that you don't root for their team. Life is way too short, and I've got a job, kids, and the gym. This is my "fun" activity.

Glad you remembered when I chased Altec off your site (Altec Lansing). Every team has their trolls, and the Red Sox have had theirs. We've tried working hard on keeping our house in order. It makes for much more fun with the games. A little good-natured ribbing and disagreeing is fine for me. But when one starts taking himself too seriously and loses the ability to laugh at himself, then in my opinion it's time to hit the gym or find another hobby.

By the way, do you still live in Minnesota? I used to work for Ingenix in Eden Prairie. I work for another large health care company now.

Take care!
