    Why are the threads on the Rockets GARM about Jazz Fans?

    Do insecure Clutchfans talk more about Jazz Fans than Jazz Fans talk about themselves?

    @Clutch

    Can we find these Jazz fan loving Clutchfans and put them in Crypt under Winterfell?

    I’ve been fascinated for a long time about your moniker, durvasa. Durvasa, an ancient Rishi and the son of Atri and Anasuya, was supposed to have a quick temper. As a result, he was revered by humans and devas alike, according to some quick research (and I spent a couple of months in India back in the ‘60’s, so this stuff has always been an interest of mine). Reverence, perhaps, in hopes of not being a target of that temper? ;-)

    The other thing I thought of was the 17th century pride of the Swedish Royal Navy, the Vasa, that turned turtle on its maiden voyage while making its way out of Stockholm’s harbor. I saw it in 1971 while it was being restored, so I wondered if that was related to your moniker in a sly bit of humor on your part. It’s likely not related to either, but it’s why I look forward to seeing the text under your avatar. In any event, good morning! :)

    Deckard, I wish there was a really interesting and smart background story to my moniker selection, but in truth I can’t recall why I chose it (some 16 years ago, on a different forum). Probably I was reading the Mahabharata at the time and his name stood out to me for whatever reason.

    Maybe it was simply that it was relatively short, starts with the same letter as my first name, and was kind of unique as Internet monikers go. Unfortunately, “deckard” was already taken. :)

    So am I. I'd wear one to trivia at the pub. Both the folks on my team and everyone else playing would wonder, what the hell is ClutchFans? There are a lot of Rockets fans in Austin, so it's not impossible that there might be a person in a crowded pub that knew about the BBS.

    Having said that, I would be stunned if anyone walked up and said, "So what's your moniker? You look ancient. You couldn't be - no, it's not possible. A Blade Runner?" To which I would respond, "I wish someone would tell Ridley that I'm not a freakin' replicant. If I were, I'd have to shoot myself!" The fellow would instantly know who I am.

    ;-)
