Your MGoName

Submitted by GoBlueScott on January 28th, 2010 at 12:04 PM

I can't remember this being posted, if it's ever been done, so if it somehow slipped my attention I'll apologize now. Even so, we have quite a few new peeps around here, and I am constantly wondering why you chose your MGoName.

Some, of course, are obvious.

Some are not. Like, "Brian." Always confused me.

Why did you choose yours?

I'm really hoping Misopogon answers.

Mine is an overlap of my 2 college sports allegiances:

Maize 'n' Blue - grew up as a Michigan fan

Blue Devil - Duke student and fan

Hence maizenbluedevil

(Figure it's kinda obvious but u never kno, som ppl may not get it.)

Enjoy Life

Several years ago it dawned on me that none of us enjoy life as much as we should. I also used to travel on business a lot. So, as a way to remind myself to "eat, drink, and be merry" because life is short, I wrote ENJOY LIFE on my luggage (it also worked great to ID my luggage and when the airlines lost it (twice) it made it easier for them to find).

I sign every e-mail with Enjoy Life and my name. I type it every time as a constant reminder (instead of just having it as an automatic signature).

Seemed logical to use it as my MGoBlog ID.

When I was in 8th grade (1997 or so), there was a story on the news about a house in a suburb of Windsor that had allegedly been entirely taken over by a hacker named "Sommy."  He'd turn the lights off and on and interrupt phone conversations and internet access at random.  This had been going on for months.  After the authorities were informed, it turned out it was the family's son picking up the other receiver and being a jerk.

I always thought the name "Sommy" was kind of cryptic, so I've used that hame online since I was about 14.

Jack Kerouac is my favorite author...and I'm black...and black and jack rhyme...so. Yeah. The chicks dig it. Well, at least the nerdy ones do, and they're usually the best ones anyway.

My name is pretty simple, I am a huge Top Gun fan. When i was a kid, i watched the movie a lot. Tom Skerritt's character reminded me of my father. So out of love of the movie and my father, i use it on blogs and such.

Huge Simpsons fan, and Thrillhouse was already taken.  I actually tried signing up multiple times over the past 3+ years and it never worked.  I got a new computer, signed up again, Great Success!!

I'd been reading posts on here for some time getting all my info here pertaining to M football. Been a fan since 70's and was extremely bothered by the turn of events in2008. After I watched the Western game, the opener last year I was so pumped. Felt we were back for sure. My mind was like, hell yea, we are still Michigan afterall. I felt inclined to post on message board and needed a name. Thats what came out of my brain that day.

There's an episode of the Simpsons where Marge develops a crush on a paper-towel logo lumberjack.  Homer and Bart prank call Marge, pretending to be the lumberjack, using the name "Chad Sexington." Rest is pretty obvious.
