    My weapon of choice is the ES335 and I thought about trying to work that in somehow, but I like my screen name.

    I use chainman because of the job I do at all of the home football games. You all have seen me on the visitors sidelines running with the down box.

    Just recently got mine changed (thanks to the eternal benevolence of OP9000).

    Many of my familial lines go back to colonial America. Some of my ancestors fought in the Revolution. I wanted to honor my family members who came to America for the promise of Liberty.

    Lyman McKeen, my g-g-g grandfather, was descended from a family of McKeens, originally from Scotland, who high-tailed it out of Ireland for religious freedom at the beginning of the 18th century and settled in the New Hampshire area. He was from Lovell, Maine. During the Civil War, Lyman joined the 16th Maine Infantry Regiment and was killed at the Battle of Fredericksburg.

    The first OSU message board I stumbled upon already had "thepoker"...so I went with "the poker2".

    I'm not even sure why I wanted "thepoker" to be real honest with you...

    p33 got back to his roots and wanted a cool name.
    Particularly big fan of the Tribe and MCA, then when he died, immediately thought of this iconic song:

    and cause John Starks also played at OSU and had one of best dunks of all time :)

    It's my go to name on the internet, selected in HS. I can be a dick sometimes, and it's a play on the naming of Star Wars characters.

    (in)Vader, (in)Sidious, (in)Sensitive.

    The fact that people miss the removed negation is just a bonus.

    okstate cause i go there and im supporter. 87 was my middle school number, before i realized my build was made for cross country/track, not tight end...shortly after that, i realized my build was best made for sitting on couches.

    there is an ridiculous number of screen names on this site with 87 in them though.

    Random letters and numbers that I chose as a userid for another site ages ago, so that I would never be fighting with another user for a userid ever again.

    Its always fun to see what people come up with, when I lie and say it is an acronym.
