Mine is rather simple.
I've always liked Dizzy Dean and his uniform numer was 17.
Another thing that factored into the creation of my message board name was the fact that one of my father's favorite movies was Pride of St. Louis, which starred Dan Dailey as Ol' Diz and Joanne Dru as his wife Patricia. Richard Crenna (who would later play John Rambo's superior officer Colonel Sam Trautman) played Dizzy's brother Paul.
Joanne Dru was the younger sister of Peter Marshall, the longtime host of "The Hollywood Squares" who was the father of former Cubs' and Royals' First Baseman Pete LaCock who homered off Bob Gibson in the last appearence of the Hall of famer's brilliant career.
My nickname in school was Muskrat but it was gone so I when with Muskrat and a number and became Muskrat50. But I never liked the number at the end. I wanted a name no one had so I picked a old comic that I liked as a kid. Magnus, Robot Fighter. I make the video and that's it.
If you like the Avengers have you seen this.
mine came from..oh, nevermind,lol
and no, i am not polish
"Mine is based on the year I became a Cards fan. But that was actually inaccurate. I was off by one year. When I created my name I was thinking nthe Detroit WS was 67. But I actually started rooting for the Cards during the 1968 WS. I became aware of them in 67 though. BTW I was in grade school at the time listening to the WS on a transistor radio with an ear piece with the wire running up inside my shirt sleeve. It amazes me now I did not get caught."
All this time you've been living a lie. I'll bet that's a real load off your mind.
