SportsFrog History

The Festitivus thread got me wondering when the SportsFrog got started. It looks like the first post was January 3, 2003. https://web.archive.org/web/20030210062 ... 30101.html

Looks like The Swamp was created on January 28, 2003. https://web.archive.org/web/20030207021 ... um.php?f=1

Unless I'm mistaken, Bengal is the longest active member. https://web.archive.org/web/20030525132 ... erlist.php

Looks like I joined in May 2004. I forgot that my original username was Dave. I later changed to Rerun, and I've been Shirley for a long time now. https://web.archive.org/web/20070220231 ... b864adf164

Pretty sure I joined in March '06. Oiler brought me here. Had dinner with him last night.

If you click into that first link and to go the Swamp, there's a link that takes you to a members list.

Says I joined in February of 2004.

Bummer, looks like they only archived the first 3 and last 3 pages of the memberlist. Pretty sure I joined May 2005, shortly before my wedding.

I joined in September of 2005 to make sure everyone knew I was OK. This was one month after my wedding. To my ex-wife.

I joined in November 2003, one month after I got sober. In March 2008 my wife joined me on a trip to NYC to participate in the Sports Frog Fantasy Baseball Auction. Had lunch with Howard on Saturday and we went to see Spamalot.

Always blows me away that rBaller was such an early member, did he join when he was like 16?

(and I too joined a wife ago. IIRC, I joined a month or two before my first wedding.)
