I miss the old days when it was just myself, Matt Boone, ninjashogunrua, alvin, and anthony trying to get these forums started. I miss watching it slowly build and gaining new and intelligent posters, like mastiffowner, banda, legend, boo, afro, etc.(sorry if you're a vet and I didn't mention your name, it doesn't mean that I don't love you) I miss having countless debates about which fighters were better pride fighters or ufc fighters. I miss staying up late and highjacking threads with boo and legend, where we would basically just bullshit with each other and talk about stuff that was completely off topic. I miss going into threads and getting ready to post something only to realize that chuckthechamp just posted exactly what I was going to say. I swear it's scary sometimes with the way chuckthechamp and I think. It's almost like we have the same mind, but that's not to say we don't have our fair share of differences and disagrements. I miss keeping my postcount up with afro's. I miss a lot of things about the way it used to be and it's sad, because just like they say "you can never go home again". These forums can never be what they were, but they're still not that bad. Sure they can be a little much at times, but they're still better than sherdog anyday.
(sorry if I bored anyone with this rant.)
I know exactly how you feel. Friday night hijacks were a lot of fun. It just wouldn't work these days.
