How Did You Discover LetsGoPens.com?

Postby FreeCandy44 on Mon Jun 10, 2013 12:01 am

What brought you here and what keeps you coming back?

What brought me here is I believe I found the link on the empty netters blog, and what keeps me coming back is....I really have no clue.

Because Igloo Report went to Rivals and the people that were there came here.

And Admin promised us that once you gave LGP a chance and paid your monthly dues of a bag of bananas, your life would change forever.

He was right. The next day, my house was raided by some crazy drunks looking for bananas for their daiquiri blender.

Late 90's I was on Web TV and used to post on their Penguins board. I think someone had a link to LGP or I may have stumbled across it searchng for game used memorabilia. I used to post as Badger-Bob before changing my handle to MS

Free Agency 2008 (Hossa year) my brother saw my computer with like 7 tabs of "TSN Tracker" "Rob Rossi's Chipped Ice" "The Pensblog Live Track", etc... and told me about letsgopens.com. Apparently he's a long-time lurker (has never posted or created an account). I lurked for a year, before for some reason becoming motivated to eventually create an account. I still lurk 9999 times more than I post

Back in 2005 when all the arena stuff was going full force, I was doing google searches to get news and this site popped up. Just started posting and following it during the whole arena saga and just for some Pens games. Enjoyed the interaction here, and that kept me coming back.

Then Juice brought his warz games and that sealed the deal. Now it's up pretty much all day in teh background at work. I can't believe it's been 8 years.

asking myself questions like this leads to a mental path of self loathing. I prefer to just accept the situation as "it is what it is".

One day I dialed in using my local ISP land line number, opened up Netscape, and Igloo Report seemed to be dormant. So I went to the cool kids' table, LGP, and was mocked for my first 1000 posts. Eventually the cliques realized I wasn't going anywhere, so they made me one of their own-only to be branded by the Scarlet M when I became moderator, effectively removing my cool factor and making me the old fuddy-duddy I am today.

I can't even remember. I remember posting on the old version of this board, then they moved. I mean my start date is the start date of this incarnation of the board I think, but yeah I honestly don't remember.

The arena saga got me hooked, my dad's been a long time lurker, so I joined up to post for him basically. Never really sure why he doesn't create an account.
