1) The "51" in your moniker -- Does it signify you graduated in 1951? ( If so, then you are one old codger, whom I should treat with due respect! )
2) Do you live close enough to Massillon to regularly attend games?
3) My name is Carl Eberly. I was born and reared on the west side of Massillon, where I lived until the crash of the "rust belt." We left Massillon to live in Florida in 1985 However, I am Massillon in my heart. My question is, by some outside chance, do you and I know each other from my pre-1985 life in Massillon? For some odd reason, I get the feeling I know you.
I've long ago lost track of the people I once knew in ObieTown. It would be nice to re-connect with those still alive, if only to say good-bye to old friends from the past, as our generation is now nearing its end. Half of our gang is already gone.
I see that your profile states -- "tiger51 has not made any friends yet." This strikes me as a sad state of affairs for a human being. It's such a lonely place for you to be. < Grin.> ( Pardon my zany mood. )
I fully grasp that you are perhaps not interested in the goody-goody aspect of "signing up" as "friends" with others on the MP website. It does come off a little kissy-kissy in a gradeschool sort of way. ( Let us all hold hands like good little boys and girls.) As a result, I (TigerCarl) do not wish to impose upon you by inadvertently suggesting we become "friends" in that fashion.
I am simply dropping you a line to extend my hand in friendship as a fellow poster. I rarely do this. It's just my goodwill gesture, as I am about to ask you a couple of personal questions. Obviously, you are not obligated to answer them.
