QUOTE(Mike Lindegarde @ Nov 20 2009, 09:26 PM)
As surprising as it may seem, there actually is a story behind my name...

Back in college my friends called me smokey (no, it had nothing to do with smoking... I'm actually very against that).  I wanted to use "smokey" as my screen name on AIM (all the rage when I was in college), but as you might guess, that was taken.  Being a computer guy (read that as "nerd"), I went with "S lVl 0 K 3 Y".

The following year I met a girl (who eventually became my wife).  I was trying to give her my AIM screen name, but she couldn't get it right (even after I wrote it down).  Eventually I gave up and switched to "mike lindegarde" for my AIM screen name.  I figured she should be able to handle that and it matched my rather unimaginative personality anyway.

I've just been using my name ever since.

I like this one because it has a backdoor meaning..your girlfriend couldnt get it right..lol...

guess I will play too...

Wish I had a witty response such as some of you, however, I got my name from my son, Tyler (TY) and my name Rodney (Rod). And to add some spice to it, we just threw sports on the end...

Well there it is, in all of its splendor.

Mine is pretty self explanatory, being a huge White Sox fan and the fact that they won the World Series back in 2005 made me decide to make the name Soxarethechamps05. Sorry not exactly the best story behind that name laugh.gif
