Who Am I?

Written by , Posted in General

Who Am I? is a feature here at VFTB designed to give some of the focus back to those who make the site a success: YOU! We’ll tell you a bit about one of our regular commenters and you guess who it is. We’ll be back later in the day with the answer.

(Would you like to be included? Let me know at lizzie@viewfromthebleachers.com … the more the merrier!)

Who Am I?

  • I was born in California but Chicago is home now. I’ve been to Wrigley Field many times.
  • I’ve been a Cubs fan since 1 month and 20 days before my 10th birthday!
  • I’ve been around VFTB since the summer of 2009, and I jumped right into the conversation as soon as I found it.
  • I favor stats mostly, with a little bit of gut feel thrown in for good measure.
  • I hated Jim Hendry, and the jury is still out on Theo.
  • I think Carlos Zambrano has been mismanaged and enabled over the years. As for Aramis Ramirez: Don’t let the door hit you in the a** on the way out. (bleeping courtesy of Lizzie)
  • When Norm and Jedi go at it, I plead the 5th!
  • If I was dining with Seymour I’d order ribs, cornbread, and either sweet potato pie or pecan pie for dessert!
  • Soon I’ll be living in Florida.

Who Am I?

  • Buddy

    Heath Bell?

  • Seymour Butts

    Is it me?

  • Seymour Butts

    Is it BLCPBEIEIO?

  • Buddy

    Tim Tebow?

  • Buddy

    Mike Quade?

  • Ozzie Guillen?

  • Lizzie

    You guys are so funny I’m tempted to let you continue but I won’t, Seymour got it, it’s BLPCB. Way to go Sey!!

  • BLPCB

    Yup, it’s me all right. I leave for my trip tomorrow. 3 days in St. Louis, 2 days in Memphis, 2 days in Nawlins, 2 days in Montgomery, 3 days in Atlanta, and then I reach Florida. Spending a night with a friend in Tally, a night in Tampa, a night in Orlando, and then my program starts. I’ll be sure to keep everyone informed of my travels.

  • Buddy

    Travel safe. And say hello to Dwight Howard for me.

  • Seymour Butts

    Since you brought up Tebow, anybody still want to make a case he’s playing like an NFL QB? Bill Maher is in the know.

  • Buddy

    Not sure what Bill Maher has to do with football, but Tebow is playing very poorly. The Broncos will likely get killed next weekend.

    Good deal Florida in the winter. You should be able to catch a few spring training games and Daytona 500, beach week, and the migration of seniors back north.

    Woot! I rang in the New Year by having a meeting with my business partner/boss and handing him my demand letter recommended by my lawyer and a few friends. I haven’t been paid since July and he has failed to communicate with me with many attempts on my part to get information from him. Looks like lawyers always make people pee their pants ’cause I got some action out of him. I’m now an unemployed IT executive with a lot of money owed to me. Guess I’ll have to hang here on the blog and harass everyone with all of my spare time. 🙂
    > Happy New Year everyone.

  • Doc Raker

    Travel safe BLPCB. Where in Florida will you settle and what program will you be in?
    * Bill Maher- has anyone made more money with less brains and talent than Bill Maher? Not named Kardashian os course.

  • Buddy

    I’m guessing Donald Trump would get lots of votes for “most money without much brains” champion.

  • @CAPS…good luck man. You must have scored the Disney job?

  • chris in illinois

    Doc, the obvious answer would be Glen Beck, Rush ‘Vicodin’ Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, but Sarah Palin-Rice leaves them all in the dust.

  • chris in illinois

    BLCB, the most important question here is: where are you eating in NOLA??

  • BLPCB

    Yea, I am working at Disney
    Idk where to eat in NOLA, but I have heard I have to go to Pat O’Brien for hurricanes.

  • Joe

    BLPCB – I’ll be at Disney later this month. When do you get there?

  • BLPCB

    I get there Jan. 18

  • gymjok

    Fly-sorry to hear of your troubles.
    I will be sending good thoughts your way hoping things work out for you.

  • Buddy

    That sounds awful, Flyslinger. I hope things work out for you. Hang in there!

  • Best of luck, Flyslinger. That just sucks.

  • Chris in illinois

    Blbcp, staying in the quarter?? Budget??? I’ve got several recs…

  • BLPCB

    I got a hotel near the airport. It was the cheapest I could get considering it is the night of the title game. 200/night

  • @fly… look on the bright side…you found your way to get out of the IT field. I picture the old guy from Office Space with his ‘jump to conclusions mat.’ My last job had plaques above the RFID readers allowing access to all of the cubical farms that (nonjokingly) read “office space.” It was a daily reminder of how spot on that movie was.

    Seriously though, that sucks. Hope we hear about round two, w/o partner, soon. Experience is the name of the game…good luck!

  • Doc Raker

    Flysinger- Sorry to hear about your troubles, I hope things turn around quickly.

  • Josh

    What are you doing for Disney?

  • Seymour Butts

    Quick note on Disney etiquette…Do not refer to a crazy person as “fucking goofy”. That has an entirely different meaning there.

  • Buddy

    Also, don’t let Hook show you what he likes to call “The Captain’s Log.”

  • BLPCB

    Thanks for the heads up guys. I am here in St. Louis right now, no one is saying anything about my Cubs hat and shirt, and I have met several Packers fans here. Tomorrow I am going to tour Busch. Only 10 bucks, vs 25 for Wrigley. Idk why everyone says this city is dangerous. It’s very safe. East St. Louis across the river is ghetto.

  • Buddy

    No Zambrano talk down there?

  • BLPCB

    A couple people at the bar here are.

  • BLPCB

    The guy serving me is a Packers fan though.

  • Do they serve Old Style? You should ask. Or Miller Lite. Hope the trip is going well CAPS…have fun man.

  • Buddy

    What bar are you sitting in?

  • BLPCB

    Not drinking. I was at the brewery, had my booze there. I was at a pizza place, Caleco’s
