    Mine comes from a golf course out around myrtle beach. My grandfather and my Dad went out there for a week or so and played at this course. John Daly has some ties to it. Anyways in the picture there was the sign for the golf course, I liked the design. So that is where I got mine.

    I am a misplaced Pacer fan living in Louisiana. How cliche.

    I used to go by Pacersforall, but that was too much like so many others.

    So I changed it to Unclebuck. I wish I had some interesting story as to why I picked that, but I don't.

    I was just thinking and for some reason Unclebuck came to mind, I liked the movie, and the name is distinctive, so I rather like the name now.



    Doug I think you look more like Eric Piatkowski

    LOL!!!!!

    For what it's worth, my wife doesn't think I look much like either.

    I think there's more of a family resemblence with Piatkowski - Fred's nose is a little off. There was a picture last year (can't find it now) Piatkowski looked very much like my cousin.

    Since I apparently killed this thread, I thought I'd bump it. :-)

    No, I'll do the thread killing around here.

    Mine is simple as well. I graduated from Indiana State and my name is Ken. It makes a very unique name and if you see it somewhere else it is probably me.

    I have also gone under the aliases of PacerFanInSA and SycamoreInSA.

    Jose played with the Pacers during the dark years of the early 80's.

    Slaughter was with the Pacers just one season (82-83) but it happen to be during the time that I went to as many games as I could.

    The Pacer's finished with their worst record in franchise history that year at 20-62 & to say the least the team had very little talent, Slaughter was no exception.

    What made Slaughter stand out was his defense. He played all out every minute he was out there. He had Heywood Workman's heart with out Woody's talent.

    I've always had a weakness for the "fish outta water" type underdog. There's a pretty good size list of former Pacer's that fit into that catagory & Slaughter represents them.

    Ehh, hard to explain. The name comes from Cal Miller's "Singer" trilogy... a certain character named Madman has a personal transformation and is renamed Anthem.

    It's actually pretty vain, which is why I don't often publicize. The story is a retelling of the New Testament, and Madman/Anthem = Saul/Paul.

    More of an ideal than what I'm really like, I guess.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    My username at the Star Forum was my initials. Then the forum updated software and I used the opportunity to change my username.
    There's no story whatsoever about it tho... It was the first thing that struck me.

    Since that time I've noticed someone else posting with what was my old username. I assume it is their initials too. Dunno...

    Anthem, "the Singer" trilogy, eh? That's pretty obscure. Well chosen. What's the Tony Shaloub connection?

    I picked mine b/c my grandma sent me one of those "christian" poster when I was a kid that was supposed to give the "biblical" meaning of your name. Maybe you've seen these things.

    The poster had a cheesy sunset or something and said "Wally" meant great ruler or army leader or something like that. Since I have more than a passing familiarity with the Bible, I think I can say with some authority that there weren't many Wallys mentioned in the Bible, and the ones that were mentioned weren't great rulers.

    Anyway, I thought a variation on that would be funny, at least to me.

    From the Austin Powers series. However, I wanted a name that wasn't a direct rip off of Dr. Evil, so I choose the next best thing: Dr. Badd.

    I saw the name in a old SLAM issue. It had a picture of JBender when he was in the dunk contest, and JBender is one of my favorite players, and someone already took MSA2CF
