    I am quite surprised Bolttalk.net is mentioned. Very surprised as a matter of fact.

    Yesterday, this website had the most visitors ever in one day and is at an all time high for registered members at 2,000+ and quickly approaching 3,000 members.

    For those fans from the UT and Chargers.com boards who thought some of us had disappeared, well you found us so the secret is out.

    If you want G-Rated posting visit Chargers.com

    If you want PG-13, go to the UT

    If you want hardcore football speak from fans who actually who attend the games and are not sponsored or slaved to billionaires and therefore restricted - welcome to Bolttalk - The hottest and until recently best kept secret for Chargers football talk. :tup::icon_toast::bolt:

    I was talking to Thumper about the site last night as we were playing Halo 3 on XBOX LIVE (my gamertag is Yo Colon Ripper). The talk was about the forums and the Chargers and then quickly turned to killing ET's. :lol:

    Indeed the site has grown - no check that - exploded over the last two years and it all started in a garage (hell they still are in a garage) :lol:

    That's awesome and congrats to every member for the pub we've received. I wasn't a hardcore poster @chargers.com, maybe 500 posts in four years over there, when I found bolttalk, it's become apart of my day and apart of my life. I haven't even looked at another board since joining, no need to. Anything needing to be said will be done here.

    This community is more important to me than the people I have met in my new city. I don't see that changing anytime soon.

    Eric & Ray started this stuff as a hobby. Since then, Concudan and Anteater have joined the staff as well as others who help keep the mongrels in line (me included) :)

    When I met Thumper around 3 years ago, he had almost a full head of hair :icon_eek: and since then, dude is almost looking like Kojak or Yul Brenner. :lol: This stuff is stressful to manage yet after a few brew and reflecting back, I suspect it was all worth it. I/we kept after the dude to watch and see how this place would take off and it has indeed.

    Bolttalk is making noise and has the big boys wondering what is up and that is good. I once had a college business professor tell me "when they start asking what are the ingredients to a successful chocolate chip, you have them hooked"

    I say, "let the chips fall where they may" to borrow a cliche'.

    I was shOcked that we were at the tOp of the list!

    I'd wish they had gotten to talk to Ray or Thumper or Loren to get their feedback into that article. Especially after putting bolttalk on top.

    I'm sorry! I would have put you in there!:icon_sad:

    I started out at the UT as a Padre forum poster, so I made mine generic, the name of our lizard. (short for T-Rex)

    BDH told me the other night in the podcast forum that we've actually met before, years ago, when he was here at Chico. He knows my old roommate and said we all partied together up here when were going to school.

    So turns out I've actually partied with this celebrity!!! :lol: Small fukkin' world, eh?

    HEY, BDH... will you buy me a jersey and autograph it when you come up here again? I wanna "one up" the Trumpetman and rub his nose in it!!! :icon_tease::icon_party:

    I'd never let Trumpy sleep over. :no::lol: Not because he's naked, but more because I don't think my neighbors would enjoy him blowing his own horn all night. :lol:

    and you'd have to burn the bed (not just the sheets mind you) and maybe drown the room in bleach afterwards :icon_tease:

    I am mentioned. I can now retire while on top:rockout:



    BTW, as Trumpie mentioned, there is a reason why this forum's popularity is quickly rising. Thumper has done a great job with this site.
