Nobody, and I mean nobody, comes into our house and pushes us around. Nor do they invade our message boards with stupid posts that will be edited out before anyone reads them. Why are you trying to get under his skin on a message board? Just go beat him up.

Last time I posted in this topic was in #578... Two years and 20 posts? Hahaha.
So to answer #594, which was posted almost a year ago, Ira the Albertan kid has gotta be 20 this year. I remember he joined the hockey board when he was like 12 and he used his dad's name to win his dad a wide-screen TV or something in the CBC hockey pool or something. Damn that was a long time ago.
Judging from the viewing statistics for this thread, I see a lot of people are still checking it once in a while.

Just trying to up my coolness factor for Motley Crue (see posts 453 and 456). As someone who read this post the day it was written, I smile every time it comes back.
I also feel old when I think back to how young I was when Ira made the post!
Almost four years since I've posted in this thread. I was remembering the generator and couldn't resist resurrecting this thing. Apologies to all.

After recent calculations, I have figured out that $134 billion is when to stop $$ making & Go for WWR 85 that is, to have a PERFECT Team

On July 16, this thread will be 3000 days old. That's old. There have been 604 posts and 1721 ratings and 1254 views from 617 users. Well, that's not entirely true - the views are since March, 2007, when this thread was almost 6 years old. I'd guess we're near 10,000 views. When it started, ARod was playing his first games for the Rangers and the Mets were the defending NL champs. And Mark McGwire was the all-time home run champ.

Apri 29, 2003 in baseball:
First time Ichiro and Godzilla played against each other in MLB
First time Dusty Baker managed against the Giants after leaving them (note: Sammy vs Bonds match up with Kerry Wood on the mound for Chi)
And on April 29 17 years prior to this Roger Clemens struck out 20 Seattle Mariners for the Red Sox.
April 29, the original date of this thread is possibly one of the most important days in baseball (and fantasy) history!

What year was this thread originally?

I'd have to do some calculations to figure that out.

2001. Only a year until its 10th anniversary.

I saw this the other day looking for something else. I almost resurrected it then.

So, I just read there'll be no more TSN baseball.
I guess you can now pick the perfect fantasy team with only $0 million. That is, to have a PERFECT Team.

Only about 4-5 more days until we've all reached PERFECTION!
I need to chime in on this thing every few years just to remember the good times. And to remember that I used to be quite young when this thread originated, but am not so young any more. This thread started before 9/11!

Need a refresher. Who is Ira? Wistfully remembering SW Sports.

After recent calculations, I have figured out that we are only 286 days til the 20th anniversary of this thread.

Since we're only playing 37% of the season does that mean we only need 31.45 mil?
And how the hell did this thread get to be nearly 20 years old? How have we been around that long?

I feel old now. I think I might need $85 million to retire.

I haven’t thought about Ira or this thread for years. Thanks for the bump. SW was fun.
