Meta: Hello: LSAClassOf2000 (MGoPoints prize inside)

Submitted by justingoblue on March 4th, 2013 at 6:37 PM

Doing my best Ace impression, I'd like to welcome the first commit for the Moderator Class of 2013, long-time user and well known board statistician, LSAClassOf2000. A prolific diarist with seemingly endless uses for tables, graphs and charts of all kinds, LSA comes highly touted by three of the four services, the lone outlier, ESPN, incorrectly projected him to defensive tackle. MGoBoard is believed to be his only offer, although uncommitable offers were reported from select scarlet and grey sites.

In all seriousness, I'm excited to work with LSA and believe MGoBoard picked up a valuable addition. With Trey Burke Trey Burke'ing Sparty last night, it's been a good couple days on the site, and this is an opportunity to share any cool stories about the game, the impending postseason, anything else sports related or just generally anything cool, fun or unique. If MGoPoints are your thing, LSA will be using his newfound functionality to adjust a user's points upward an undetermined amount for an undetermined reason, so get creative if you're interested.

My cool story from the MSU game - I went to the game with a friend and as is typical for me, I was screaming my head off at the times when I thought it might help our team (on defense, during MSU free throws etc.). There was a State fan who was by himself and sitting next to me. We (and everybody around us) were above the fray and ignored him. He was quiet as well except for muted displeasure about some of the calls. After the MSU three that brought the score to 56-54 he suddenly turned towards me and started screaming in my ear in a mocking tone. I promptly turned to him and started with 'You will always be a typical state fan, but this is Michigan - you better cut it out'. He said 'But you were shouting throughout the game' to which I replied that none of that was directed at him and that is what fans do in their attempt to influence the game in however small a way. I ended by saying that if he wanted to scream/cheer anymore he better look straight ahead or STFU. Rest assured he STFU and politely excused himself after the game.

because it's not fair to him or to LSA to have 50 comments about it on here, but I will say that profit is cutting back (he even changed his signature earlier) and there wasn't any specific thread or incident that prompted it. He's been talking about it for a while now and decided that the time was right in the past few days; that's why we have this Hello: post tonight.

Like JGB said, I've been thinking about quitting for a while now and that last thread was the perfect reason to make it happen.  Its pretty damn stressful and time-consuming to be a moderator.  I've been doing it for over 2 years and I think (and you all probably agree) that it was time for some fresh eyes.  Congrats to LSA!  Good luck to him!

[Edit:  And apparently I'm "trolling" with this comment.  Thanks for the fitting sendoff, internets!]

First and foremost, thanks to all for the support here - it does mean a lot to me. In celebration, I am trying to go through the thread and give everyone an across-the-board 100 point boost, so congratulations to those of you who are now empowered to create threads. Also, the beers are on me tonight - I just have to remember not to use the corporate card, that's all. Further, I promise to remain the only person with a Rainbow Dash avatar willingly, although I am not necessarily above finding avatars to give to wayward posters. 

In all seriousness, it might take a bit for me to learn the ropes of the whole mod thing, but if you run across anything that needs a look, I am on Twitter, so feel free to DM me there and I will try to respond promptly (within a few hours on the outside).

LSAClassof2000 can give me an avatar of anything he wants, even a pony, if I win a points prize, and I'll keep the avatar until the next football season starts.
