    Your nickname is Poopy? Did you have a number 2 accident or something?

    Nice. I would agree this biz is good for fitness (but too much can break the body down IMO esp. in the heat).

    I can go out at any time during the season and run a 5K - not easy but doable.
    If I try to do that in the winter, no dice man.

    Long story...college nickname because I was always being a little **** and pulling pranks and stuff. Not sure how "hey, you little ****" turned into Poopy...but it did!

    And to answer the other question...YES, these games are nationwide: www.alumnifootballusa.com - this is the first year for our area.

    When you haven't played a single snap in over 18 years, some guys 30+ years...it's something. When you have real jobs, families ,and real bills to worry about while risking injury...it's something! There were 100+ guys that will tell you...it was something!
