Walsh got his start under Paul Brown.  Brown was the revolutionary who envisioned the power of the forward pass in football; successful in is 1-2 seasons at OSU (won a national title), and led the Browns to 9 title games in a 9 year span.

While I despise the Buckeyes (sorry, PSU and Michigan have my loyalty in the Big 10), they have produced excellent players throughout the decades (Maurice Clarett was an aberration and he wasn't ready for anything).

Would that be the same Paul Brown who's name appears on Cincinatti's Stadium?

Definitely not the Greeks.   ;D

Which UEFA Championship - there are a number of them.

I'm guessing the Italians.
No, not the Greeks. ;D

You are right that there are a number of championships, but there is only one in which countries play against each other, and not individual clubs (unless you count the under-21 tournament, which I don't).

Italy is a good guess, but they've only won once, in 1968. The winningest country is Germany, having won the 1972, 1980, and 1996 games. They also lost the championship game in 1976, 1992, and 2008. Next is Spain, having won the 1964 and 2008 games, and finishing second in 1984. Third is France, having won in 1984 and 2000.

Anyone see the Barcelona v. Real Madrid game yesterday?   Real is really falling off.  Also, barcelona is a MACHINE.  they are on a 8 game winning streak!

Well it took him a year and a half to get here, but I think he'll slow down from the rate of 8.961 posts per day, so I'm guessing two years... December 2010.

I meant to comment on this earlier - it's amazing how one's posting rate can remain high, despite periodic slow periods.  At face value (i.e. what the forum tells me), my average is 6.380/day (including this post).  However, if one does not count my first year (can you believe that I only had 183 posts after my first year on the forum?) - tossing out both the posts and the time - my rate stands at 8.21 posts/day, which I seem to have sustained over a 3+ year period (I joined Oct 5 of '04).  This high, despite the fact that I've had whole months spent at Summer camp, times of my grandfather's illness, etc.

So I have no doubt that Mr. Y can indeed keep up a high-level 8.9/day rate - with those summers off, what better things would a teacher and father have to do than post on OC.net? ;)

That's about right. Even before I was a moderator, I averaged about 6.5-7 posts per day; posting in the special moderator-only sections has given me a couple more.

I think the big "mod bump" for me was "diving in" to my section (Faith Issues).  Since I was reading every post of the 2nd busiest board on the Forum, I was getting a lot of exposure to discussions I was interested in, which bumped up the posting volume.

Yeah, I'm the mod of the second least busy board on the Forum (only to my wife's). I haven't gotten much of a boost there.

Well, it's still been impressive.  You're in the top-10, which is a big deal considering that the top-10 members in total posting have accounted for a whopping 23.5% of the Forum's posts.

Thank you. But what's even more impressive is that this is the first forum to which I've ever contributed more than fifty posts. Tells a lot about our administrators and moderators. This is, in my opinion, the very best run forum on the Internet, and that opinion is the very reason why I've stayed and why I've become a moderator.

No cards or flowers necessary!  Inter-National Global Moderator's Day (we do live in different nations, you know) happens every time we go through a day without people making fools of themselves, or disrupting the forum, or condemning most of humanity.  It is it's own reward.

Unfortunately, it's a lot like Pentecost: it only happens once a year, and most people don't realize that it's happening until it's almost done!

I think he was just poking fun at "EEG signal," basically telling you that it sounds like Star Trek to him...

My wife and I are obsessed with that show!  I a still interested in your answer...whenever you get a chance.  no biggie.   

Don't get me started!  We should have the two of you over some time, to watch re-runs and talk about the kiss.

I figured that serb1389 was making Star Trek references although they were completely random to me.  Oh, this is the random topics thread after all, go figure.   ;D

We're closing in on 5,000 posts - maybe by 1 AM EST or before I go to bed, whichever is earlier.   :)

LOL you do that Dr. Crusher.  don't kill yourself over it Q. 

Nice Star Trek reference!

He was the one talking about having brain activity and not existing (at the same time).  Sounds very Star Trek-esque to me!  lol.

No thanks to Art Model.

He deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.  He introduced the league to Network TV; That deserves enshrinement regardless of who hates him in Cleveland.

Entirely possible; who knows.  You should go back in the archives to the New Years Eve Eve marathon GiC and I had; amazing stuff.

That sounds like self-gifting to me...

He deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.  He introduced the league to Network TV; That deserves enshrinement regardless of who hates him in Cleveland.

He ran the team into the ground - poor management, over-involvement (a.k.a. "meddling").  He drove away Paul Brown, Jim Brown, and Bernie Kosar.  He lied to the city and to the fans. Bad personnel decisions, bad drafts, etc.  Yes, he's the mover behind both NFL on television and, more astoundingly, MNF.  For some things he deserves to be in the Hall - for others, he deserves to be forever banned from said Hall (especially considering the Hall of Fame is less than an hour and a half  from Cleveland!).

I have seen all the Star Trek reruns with Captain Kirk - during High School.

You... should watch the... old... Star Trek again.
