And, you may have noticed that Kate didn’t post this. Kate’s like has sped up, what with jobs and a wedding coming and all. So we are looking for someone to take over putting up the GameThread posts. If you’ve always wanted to write 162 (well 161 posts now) a year, where you can talk about (almost) anything you want, but they have to be up before each game, send me an email.

We are glad you are here and hope you feel welcome. As a reminder, we have rules. Mostly it’s “don’t be terrible.” If a moderator asks you to stop doing something, please stop. If you want to discuss the rules, don’t do it in the thread. Email Tom instead. He would love to see an email not offering him money to promote a sports betting site. We also have a BBB Glossary full of GameThread lingo you can find here.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
