I've lived in the Indianapolis area for the better part of my life and a life long Pacers fan. I was well on my way to a find career in software when I was derailed by getting laid off twice in less than a year. Now I am trying to make a career in real estate, but it is tough sledding.

Damn you btowncolt for making me respond.

I am a 21 year old graduate student at the University of New Orleans getting a degree in Statistics (hoping to move into Sports Stats eventually). I graduated from LSU about a year ago with a degree is pure mathematics, and I loved it, but stats is good too.

I have been following the Pacers since Travis Best came into the League. The 1994 payoffs were good, but 95 was the year for me. I have had league pass for the past three years which is about how long I have been on the Indy boards. Started on Indystar nearly three years ago, and have never been much more than a lurker. Made the shift to here and love it, but still never really post.

That's about it, so thanks for this thread, punk, and thanks to Hicks for the killer board.

Im a 21-year old senior at Oakland U. Near Detroit. I major in journalism. I've been a Piston fan for 16 years, and I hope to become their beat writer someday. I play a lot of street basketball, though it has nearly costed me my life on occasion.

My first Pistons game was game 5 of the 1987 ECF- where Bird stole the ball from Isiah to win the game. I've been blessed with two championship teams since then, so everything is all gravy to me now.

Besides basketball, my other hobby is anime. I speak partial japanese, and have been known to bake the meanest Okonomiyaki this side of the Pacific. I'm slowly learning to make sushi, though at present I suck at it.

I also prefer hip-hop/rap music above all else, Eminem is my hero, but for easy listening i'll pop in a tape of japanese music, because its smoother to listen to.

Hoop from Greenwood, IN. Pacer season ticket holder for 18 years. 38 years old, damn you guys are young. :P My main hobbies are Drag Racing and Computers. I have a barely street legal Camaro that runs 9.30's @ 144mph on the motor and 8.80's @ 152 with small shot of N2O. Hard to beat the thrill of carrying the front tires past 60 ft and going 0-60mph in <1.5 seconds.

Jay. CPA and consultant at one of those Big-4-thingies. Grew up in Greenwood; now I'm in Chicago. I've had half-season tickets since the early 1990s. Long ago, I declared myself to be Chuck Person's biggest fan. :rolleyes:

I'm one week older than Uncle Buck (34) and many, many times wiser. :P :D

During basketball season, I don't really have any other hobbies. Well, I've got a seven-year-old St. Bernard and Jay's_Daughter@Section222 turns four next month. She's already a big Pacers fan (last spring I taught her to say, "We don't like the green guys.") Otherwise, I'm a Springsteen fanatic, and I do some woodworking and I'm remodeling my basement into the ultimate Pacers viewing room (well, its not as good as sitting in Section222 but it is three hours closer!) My knees are a mess - I was a sprinter on my college track team - so now I do a lot of (road) bicycle riding in the summer.

Its nice to find people that realize Reggie wasn't Mr. Clutch for about five or six seasons, in fact he was usually "Mr. Chicken" up to about 1993 (save one forty-footer against Milwaukee when Versace was here.)

I'm Eric, a 30 year old electrician living on the west side of Indy. I'm originally from Fort Wayne and moved here in May of 2000 because of the lack of Pacers coverage...Radio or TV. In '99-2000 I was traveling to Indy home games nearly every week and got sick and tired of the drive. Yes, the blue and gold means that much to me. I have been a Pacer fan since the 92-93 season.

Also, I was a fan and season ticket holder for the Fort Wayne Fury, Fort Wayne's CBA team. Too bad Isiah had his way with the CBA because the Fury was one of the more sucessful teams in the league. Thank goodness I was out of Ft. Wayne before Zeke destroyed the only redeeming quality about F.W.!
Thanks Isiah!

28 year old professor of music in San Antonio. I spent the last 6 years in graduate school at IU and got hooked. I managed to get tickets to the last home game of the 2000 finals, and I've been seriously addicted ever since. Tough being in Spurs country, but at least they know basketball.

Love the new board by the way. Much better than the Nameless other board. I was embroiled in a weird bit of e-hate mail 2 summers ago when I emailed Mark Montieth several questions as "Justin from Bloomington." Zillions of people emailed to complain that he was answering too many of my questions, so I've been laying low. This is my first Pacers email to anyone since then! Does anyone remember that weird episode?

Like Jay, I'm a big Springsteen fan (Tough to decide on a favorite, but I lean towards the early years - The Saint, The Incident and the Main Point Shuffle; The Milwaukee Bomb Scare Show; We Gotta Get Out of This Place; Live at Max's Kansas City; Thundercrack, etc.)

Also like Jay (I'm assuming), I have a tattered #45 jersey somewhere buried in my closet (with my Ball State "How Sweet It Is" t-shirt).

R.J.

PC tech

28 years old.

Muncie

I've loved playing and watching basketball since I was about 4 years old, in 1979.

Started following, and being a Pacers fan since 82-83, Clark Kellogg was my favorite Pacer back then, also liked Herb Williams, Billy Kight, and later on Stipo, and Vern Fleming.

I also was a big Larry Bird\Celtics fan back around 80-88 as well, he was my favorite player then, and I was probabaly more of a Celtics than a Pacers fan in the early years, until Reggie was drafted.
Went to my first Pacers game at MSA back in 1983, against the Celtics, and the Pacers got beat, of course.

After that era, I liked Tisdale, Person, Reggie, and then Smits, and the trade that got us 'Tank' Thompson, and Detlef. From the early to mid 1990's on, I liked when we had Dale and Antonio to go up front with Smits, also liked having 'Woody' and Byron Scott being an addition to the backcourt.
I also liked getting Jax, and Jalen via trade a few years later.

My favorite years were when Larry Brown took over, and then when Larry Bird started coaching.

I love the players and coaching staff we have now, it's amazing to see Reggie still out there after all of these years, but this team is up there on the ranks with a few of the other great Pacers teams we've had, IMO.
Jermaine is my favorite Pacer now, then Reggie. I love having Ron, Al, Jamaal, Jeff, and Fred Jones, as well, although I'm not sure how many more years that will last, from a management\contract standpoint.

Other than that, I'm a big time sports fan, and the Pacers and Colts mean a lot to me.

Its nice to find people that realize Reggie wasn't Mr. Clutch for about five or six seasons, in fact he was usually "Mr. Chicken" up to about 1993 (save one forty-footer against Milwaukee when Versace was here.)

That's the way I remember the young Reggie, too. If I hadn't been a Pacers fan, in the early years, I might have called him a skinny prima donna.

Because I got to see Reggie mature over the years and grow into an Indianapolis legend, maybe, that explains why I am generally sympathetic to the problems each of our current young guys has gone thru.

I'm so old I remember when Slick Leonard played for the Minneapolis Lakers.

I also saw the first Pacers game in the ABA at the coliseum with my dad. The next spring in Indy I saw Bobby Kennedy give his famous speech at Broadway Park, the night Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot and killed in Memphis.

I still live in Indy. One of the best times of 2003 for me was taking our three-year-old grandson to a Pacers game. I want the tradition to continue. I doubt he'll remember much about Reggie Miller and Jermaine O'Neal, but I know for sure Boomer and his buddy, Bowser, sure did make a great first impression.

Wu-Hsi Li, 24 years old from Taipei, Taiwan. I'm a M.S. student in Taiwan University, major: computer science. I become a pacers fan about ten years ago because of Reggie

all-time guest in pacers digest who read every thread but never reply :D (well, in fact, I DID post a few before although my post count is zero) However, I have over 1000 posts in the forum(bbs/telnet system) in Taiwan

I follow most of the pacers game through the audio league pass in NBA.com, and of course, never miss any game when it is televised in Taiwan (11 games this season (MIRACLE!), which is far more than the games in the past few seasons)

(In Taiwan, about 5 NBA games are televised in Taiwan in a week, however, it's always LAKERS-XXX, MAVS-XXX, KINGS-XXX, ROCKETS-XXX(since last year) on the TV :mad: )

I hope one day I can have a trip to Indy and watch several Pacers games before Reggie retires. :)

Been a huge hoops fan for probbly close to 10 years now. My interest in the NBA has been up and down during that period. Been a fanatic of Australia's NBL the whole time (see fave player Brett Maher in avatar) and during the off-season with a lack of bball news I went into withdrawal and started reading nba.com every day. Been a big fan of Reggie since I saw him single handedly destroy the Australian Boomers when he was playing for the Dream Team. I eventually stumbled onto pacersdigest and then my nba addiction got re-inviguerated.

Play online computer games abit, was a member of Australia's best Battlefield 1942 team and am now playing Call of Duty. Have very heated LAN games of NBA Live 2004 with a friend, gawddamn Yao is so tough. Play social basketball twice a week and various other sports but they are all just filler.

My real name is Joe, I'm 29 years old, Italian, I grew up in South Philly,for those of you that saw the movie Rocky if you remember when Rocky was running through the italian market and the guy threw him a piece of fruit; I grew up about 5 blocks from that location. I currently live in South Jersey about 10 minutes outside of Philly.

I've been a 76ers fan since I was very young when my father took me to my 1st game at the Spectrum we sat behind Dave Zinkoff he was the long time 76ers public address announcer and after the game my father took me down to the exit where the players would leave the stadium(they didn't have private exits for the players then) and I had my picture taken with Toney,Cheeks, Bobby Jones, Iavaroni, Franklin Edwards and Clint Richardson and I just remember being a huge basketball fan since a very young age as my dad would always watch the 76ers every night and I would sit right next to him and never miss a game.

I played 2 seasons of minor league baseball in the Expos organization and didn't have the talent to get all the way to the bigs and currently I deal in sports memorabilia primarily wholesale.


By the way Jay, everytime I would watch Chuck Person with the Pacers I would hope the 76ers would try to make a deal and bring him to Philly :) Person and Barkley were close friends because they both went to Auburn and he would have been a perfect fit for those 76ers teams in the Barkley era he was fearless and he could go on some amazing scoring streaks.

You know it's bad when you can't see I-69! If it's so bad they can't plow the intersate then you might as well give it up! I'm sure they'll have the runway clear and the rubber bands warm for the propellors on the planes at FWInternational. You are flying aren't you?

Acutally no I am not. I have to make stops in Nashville and Atlanta so I need to drive. If I have to wait untill noone to leave so be it. The weather will only be bad through Seymore. It is usually not as snowy once you get past the 50 mile marker on I-65 south. By the time I get to Kentucky it will be smooth sailing. But yeah that first part is going to suck big time.

There were two multi car pileups this morning on I-69 according to WOWO.

If I had to go to four airporst (Atlanta, Nashville, Fort Wayne, and Tampa) I would spend about 12 hours in airports. That is leaving out the flight time! As it is I will spend about 17 hours in the car each way.

I will be very carefull tomorrow morning because that will be the most dangerous part of the trip.

I actually like the drive to Florida and back it is the only time I can really get into an audio book and hear the entire thing. The only bad thing is that no matter what I do (unless I run really late) I am going to be in Atlanta for rush hour tomorrow.

Bassmasters is having a tournament here Feb. 24-28. They were here in 2001 and had awesome results. Over 2000 bass caught with an average weight of over 3 pounds.

Last year a 14.5 pound bass was caught during a tournament. I love it.

Been a Pacer fan since the late 70's - too young for the ABA glory days. I remember listening to Bob Lamey do the play-by-play on the radio while the Pacers were perennial cellar dwellers.

I'm 36 now. Some of my all-time favorites are Clark Kellogg, Johnny Davis, Billy Knight, Vern Fleming, Chuck Person, Reggie, the Davis boys, and Rik Smits (after his 5th year in the league).

Is anybody old enough around here to remember the 3-2 rule on free throws? I can't recall exactly but after 5-7 fouls within a period, a team got 3 attempts to make 2 free throws. One of those oddball rules that's gone away.

Doug. I live in Carmel. Grew up in Illinois. Lived in Detroit (Southfield, actually) for 2 years right out of college. Got transfered to Dallas. Then got sent up here in '91. I worked in Kokomo. Wife worked in Indy. We split the difference and decided to live in Carmel. Work in Indy now. Thank goodness I don't have to make that drive anymore.

Anyway, I wasn't really an NBA fan when I moved here. Got hooked on the Larry Brown Pacer teams - the heart, the hustle. Been an fan ever since - that'll never change. I'm loyal like that.

I'm 38 now, just had a birthday.

Oh, and yes I will modify RoboDoug to work over here. Eventually.

I've been a Pacer fan since about 1998. I've always loved the Davises and, of course, Reggie.

There aren't too many Pacer fans here. I personally know of only two others -- and they're the type who think that Jalen Rose is still with the team. We get an NBA game every day on cable television but since this country just loves the Lakers, I only get to see a Pacer game about once or twice a month.

Before I die, I would love to see a real game at Conseco.

Desktop machines as well as servers this is depending on the buyer, DT mostly Windows as people prefer this, for unknown reasons to me :)
I prefer to install a *nix flavor on it :) servers rarely windows, though i have two clients (telco's) that require that stuff and in all honesty it's a pain to maintain and the proc and mem usage on large MSsql dbases is appaling compared to oracle, postgres and so on.
Most want *nix flavors, which i prefer as well, certainly when i do maintenance and or admin on the machine.

Ken here.

Grew up in in Elkhart, IN until I was 5, moved to Terre Haute, moved to the bustling burg of Rosedale, IN for 2 years and then back to Terre Haute. Terre Haute North class of '88.

Graduated from ISU in '92, got married in '97, moved to San Antonio in '98, and have not shoveled snow since. I teach 4th grade students.

Grew up a Bird/Celtics fan. Never saw any NBA before then, but did have a red white and blue DR. J. ball. Knew him more from those old Spaulding ads in the back of comic books than from playing the game.

First Pacer memories (remember, I was living in Terre Haute with 3 channels) are from the memorable Celtics/Pacers playoff series where Bird hit his head and then returned to the game. Became interested and jumped on the band wagon then. :pineapple:

I lived in Kokomo for about 6 years, then moved to Mobile, Alabama for my first two years of college at University of South Alabama, then moved back to Indiana to Evansville to finish college at University of Southern Indiana. Graduated with Marketing Degree. Met my wife while at USI and got married a couple years later.

Moved to Indy(Fishers) then and lived there for 3 years before being transferred for work to Stanley, North Carolina. (Just outside of Charlotte). I am a Marketing Product Manager for a one of the largest consumer products Plastics companies in the world. Weather is great down here most of year and the golf is unbelieveable, but I still miss Indy sometimes.

Became a Pacers fan in the early 90's when I was in High school and have been a dedicated fan ever since.

One day I'm gonna actually have time to sit down and watch the direct ticket. Then Ill put forth the well worth it money for the package. I miss watching the Pacers on tv and seeing them play in person. I moved right before they moved into Conseco so I have never seen the inside of the fieldhouse yet. But one day Im going to come up just for a game.

I'm Buddhaboy from Manila, the Philippines. I'm 31 years old, married (no kids but we have 11 cats), and am a comedian by profession.

I've been a Pacer fan since about 1998. I've always loved the Davises and, of course, Reggie.

There aren't too many Pacer fans here. I personally know of only two others -- and they're the type who think that Jalen Rose is still with the team. We get an NBA game every day on cable television but since this country just loves the Lakers, I only get to see a Pacer game about once or twice a month.

Before I die, I would love to see a real game at Conseco.

Hey Buddhaboy, is the PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) still real big over there? I visited the Philippines back around '80 or '81, and was surprised to learn how big pro basketball was over there. If I remember right there were some failed/former NBA players in that league, though there were rules regarding how many American players they could have on each team.

I'm a 60 year old, young at heart, sports fan. I especially love auto racing and hockey, but living in Indiana you must like and follow basketball. I was lucky enough to see the first Pacer game in 1967 and have seen many in person and on the tele since. I really enjoy high school sports, especially football and basketball, and attend most of the games of my alma mater, Cathedral.

I play poker (texas/omaha hold'em).

If you know any cool places to eat sushi or play poker, or better yet do both :D please let me know!! The closest poker room I've found is down in Louisville. My current favorite sushi joint is Asaka and it's sushi happy hour ($1/piece) :pepper: :dance:

Here's the oddity of it, though...I've been mispelling the name of the character for 5 years and never knew it until a couple of months ago when someone called me on it. I went back and looked it up, and sure enough he was right. Since I am used to typing it this way I never changed it.

I was a software engineer for 5 years in the C++ realm until everyone started outsourcing. After a year of picking up a job only to get laid off again and again, I have changed careers to the wonderful world of Real Estate and am scrapping for every penny that I can get. If anyone can help a fellow Pacer fan, please let me know.

I must have missed this roll call back in February

BillS, stuck in the basketball Hell that is Atlanta Georgia - where if it ain't the SEC it ain't college football.

Originally from various places around central Indiana, from 5th grade on I was in Danville just west of Indy. Dad is from Brazil IN, Mom was from Terre Haute.

Remember seeing the Pacers play during the first season and haven't looked back, even after moving down here in 1984.

Long time member of the Other Forum but came here this season when it became clear that threads in the Other Forum were becoming two good comments and degenerate into insults.

Discovered my wife liked basketball (though she hated watching it on TV) during the Pacers' playoff run in 1994 and converted her to a Pacers fan due mostly to the sweet shot of Reggie Miller.

I'm a History student at the University of Western Ontario. I'm turning 19 in November...(that's right...I did my first year in University at age 17 and legal drinking age is 19...embarassing).

Anyway, I've been a Pacer fan since I first watched Reggie play which was 1995 against the Knicks of course. I usually try to attend 4-5 Pacer games a year, and last year made the trip to Conseco which was every bit worth the costs. Hopefully I can get down there for the upcoming season to see Reggie play one last time in Conseco.

Mourning

Ok, well I'm a 28-year old Dutchman.

I'm momentarily single (:blush:) and work at a judicial proces-server firm in Utrecht (central part of the country about 50-60km south of Amsterdam) as an administrative employee, I'm about to lead my own small unit in about a year and a halve if our growth continous at the present rate, so will move up significantly in this small but growing organisation.

Before doing this I studied political Science for a year as a 2nd course (made it) and two years of history (as my 1st course), which I loved, but which has worse career options than I had ever imagined before starting it:mad::(. In other words I didnt want to become a school teacher and I know I'm not talented enough to finish top 5 of an 100+ class to go to an institute as a researcher.

I love reading about international affairs, security analysis, military and political history, military technology and about everything that touches these topics/subjects.

I also love watching a "good" movie, the plot/story is what matters most, I dont care too much for special effects mostly (there are notable exceptions such as the Lord of the Rings-trilogy forinstance).

Music is another of my "what would life look like without it???:cry:"-things. I'm a die-hard U2 fan since I was about 14 when the Achtung Baby album came out, been to several concerts of 'em. Colplay and Travis are my other two favorite bands (again several concerts), but generally I have a pretty broad choice of music, ranging from classical to Trancehouse and some UK garage.

My main interest is basketball though [surprise, surprise]. Have been playing on little courts and in schoolbrakes since whenever I can remember. Started following the NBA shortly after Rik Smits joined the Pacers. Quickly turned into a fan, which is hard if you only get 5 minutes a week of NBA on national TV (spread on ALL teams:D) and you have to wake up at 4:30 AM to watch "This week in the NBA" in the middle of the week on CNN.
Somehow managed to follow the team in years, previous to when the Internet became available to us (1995), Reggie killing the Knicks and Rik hitting that shot against Orlando in the play-offs (1994?).

Only been playing bball at clublevel for 5 years now, but I can say with a straight face Im still improving and getting more important to my team with each year, which I take pride in.

Other hobbies include lying down on a matras in the sun with a good book, some music and something nice to drink and eat all within handsreach.


Regards,

Mourning:cool:

I know Indiana and Kentucky are big state rivals in college sports (Kentucky won the Kentucky-Indiana High School All Star game earlier this year in Owensboro), but Kentucky has no pro teams yet, so I'll go with the Pacers untill KY gets one.

Hi All,

I just joined last week, nice to be here. I'm down here in Bloomington. This seems like a good board. Of course, July isn't really prime bball time, but maybe I'll know some of you a little better when the season rolls around.

Been a P fan since college. My junior year I remember getting excited when a friend told me the Pacers drafted Reggie. Then I got really let down when he said it was Reggie Miller instead of Reggie Williams, who I thought would be a star (Anyone remember Reggie and the Miracles at Georgetown?). Guess that shows how much I know...

Anyway, nice to be here!

NumberSeven
08-11-2004, 07:12 PM
Mike, here.

NumberSeven is my "handle" because that was my son's number in football and baseball the year I first joined the IndyStar message forum.

I remember the days the curtains were dropped around the upper sections of MSA due to poor attendance. The signs the crowd would weild: "We want Ralph." Didn't get him.

I remember the days of the big white stiffs: Gray, Dreiling, Stipo... loved them all.

I remember the day of the MSA draft party when Reggie was chosen over Steve and the whole crowd booed.

I remember Herbie and Clark (Special K -- one of my favorites).

Tisdale's smile.

Granny's bald head and the way he held the ball at arm's length to ward off defenders.

The Rifleman's arrogance and determination against the Celts.

Don and Billy: two of the first NBA Pacer All-Stars.

Vern. I had a friend of mine during high school who would always pretend to be Vern when we were playing ball in the driveway.

I miss those days.

I am glad Reggie is still with us, but I hate the fact his better days are behind him. I hope the Pacer brass can always give him, at least, the last spot on the Pacer bench and never let him retire. The twelfth man never plays anyway, does he? They can always keep him on the IR. I mean Damon had the best seats in the world for NBA games and never played a minute for Pacers. They can let Reggie ride for a couple years, can't they?

I am glad Alford never played for the Pacers -- his reputation as a Hoosier collegiate would have been tarnished. Ditto, Bailey.

I would have liked to have seen Calbert as a Pacer though. Even Alan. I am glad Randy had the chance.

I loved Haywood, the Davis boys, and especially Rik. Gives me goosebumps when the camera shows Rik on the overhead scoreboard and the crowd cheers for him.

Grant Hill's first game at MSA was also my son's first game at MSA.

Versace's hair. Ha. I always thought about cotton candy when I saw his hair.

The playoff series against Orlando when in a matter of seconds Shaw, then Reggie, then Penny, then the Dutchman hit clutch shots for an eventual Pacer victory. "He hits, he hits!!!"

I remember one of the few Laker games I was able to see at MSA and Kareem fouled out. He wasn't happy, the crowd was ecstatic. Small victory, but you take what you can get.

I believe Peck asked in a thread he started about the common fan. I believe the common fan is one that may have an actual memory, an actual care about the players, the setting, the fun that our blue and gold can give to us. May not matter the financial affluence, whether the tickets were given to you or purchased by you, or even how many games are personally attended.

I am a fan.

My name is Mike.

Eeep. I'm a doofus. I even posted in this thread a couple weeks ago and just forgot about it.

I blame it on my vacation last week. I had to go up to Chicago and deal with traffic and a$$holes everywhere. My four month old son didn't sleep well and still isn't caught up, so of course my wife and I didn't sleep well and we're not caught up. I'm still not back to my normal self. I hope my other thread just floats down to oblivion peacefully.

Thanks Jay.

Great post 7. Back in the days of the white stiffs, my friends and I would drive down from Marion and get $7 seats on the lower level behind the basket. We'd make signs that said "2 for Stu" and make a big scene. Sounds kind of stupid now, but we had a blast at the old MSA.

I also like your definition of a fan.

Vicious Tyrant
08-11-2004, 07:36 PM
Stipo, count me in your club of people who were too into the Pacers at one point. I got rid of cable a couple years back for that very reason. If I watched a Colts or Pacers game and they lost, I was aggravated to distraction for at least two days. Marriage and parenthood makes you examine that kind of thinking. Its really hard to combine the two. Plus you have to go to work and be able to pretend like you're working.....

I'm an IT professional working for Computer Sceinces Corporation. I enjoy playing the piano, working on websites, movies, etc... etc... etc...

Anyhow, this looks like a great and active site. Hicks has done a really nice job. I'll be around throughout the season.

25 year old Aussie living in London, UK. Was just a general follower of the NBA until the Reggie v Spike battles got my attention. Since then, Pacers all the way. Managed a couple of trips to New York, Boston and Toronto where I caught a few games live, but never a Pacers game. On the to do list.

Work in the betting industry, so keeping up with sport is part of the job. Main passions are basketball and Australian Football. Getting very good at following my favourite teams from afar :sad:

Been a lurker the last couple of months, but will try to get a bit more involved from now on in all things Pacer :cool:

If I could make one suggestion though... is there any way to put a button at the bottom of each thread page that will take you back to the main page? If there's a way to do it already I guess I'm to dumb to find it.:dunce:
