Thomas The Terrible
Well what do you want to know? Damn you nosy bastards OK here’s the deal. I’m 36, I’m an Êv¡£ Genius, I’m a sarcasm specialist, single, employed, Taurus, I drive an Acura, I have a tattoo, I consider Heath candy bars a separate food group, I’m located in the 3rd layer of hell known as Columbia, SC., and a die hard Tennessee fan!! I like other teams as well such as The Detroit Pistons, Colts, Steelers, Boston Red Sox & whoever is playing Alabama at that particular moment etc etc.
I like honesty, writing, reading, watching a good flick, playing Texas Hold’em or Seven Card Stud, winter time the colder the better & mountain biking.
I try to keep an open mind to most forms of music. I can listen to Nine Inch Nails, AFI, Tori Amos, older Billy Joel, The Dead Kennedys & The Beatles in one sitting.
I dislike McDonalds, Wal-Mart, The Big East, the bands Creed & Nickelback, people who abuse animals and/or children, people with mullets (most of the Florida & Alabama fans worldwide have mullets), people who TyPe LiKe ThIS, Coach Steve God Spurrier, myspace & overweight people who wear spandex!
I was serious about hating myspace…damn it.
Some of my most memorable quotes are:
“A fat girl does not get thinner on AOL. “
“If I was the dad of one of the spelling bee contestants that was exited early I would ask them to spell f-a-i-l-u-r-e.”
“I personally blame Trent Reznor for crappy angst bands like Limp Bizkit, Stabbing Westward & Linkin Park”
I’m also the most non-southern southerner you shall ever meet. I hate NASCAR, despise country music, I don’t drink sweet tea, I’m one of few that realize the Civil War is over, I refuse to use to word “y’all” and finally if I hear one more person say “git-r-done” I’ll scream until I give myself an aneurysm.

My priorities changed on June 11, 2007. This is my daughter, Alana Giselle. We have nicknamed her GiGi. This pic was taken after one of her fussy nights. She thought she would outlast me. I won (barely)…
I am the ying to the yang of Thomas. I want to thank him for giving me the opportunity to contribute to his site. Make no mistake, this is HIS site. I am but a very small piece…
I was born and raised in Memphis, TN (Orange Mound & Whitehaven). By nature I am a Volunteer, but I do root for the University of Memphis basketball team. I attended Tennessee State University in Nashville, TN. Our most famous alum was some lady named Oprah Winfrey…
I have had a lot of friends to play both football and basketball for UT, and I almost went for undergrad and law school, but Nashville was a little closer to home. Plus I played trumpet in the school’s “Aristocrat of Bands”. Best. Band. In. The. Land.
Fast forward to today, and I am stuck in Houston, TX. Thanks to the internet, I keep up with a lot of friends all over the place. Hopefully some of those friends will comment on this site.
All sports teams suck in one way or another, but the most annoying fan bases that I have encountered are Alabama and Texas A&M. Don’t get me wrong: every team has yahoos. But the yahoos at ‘Bama and A&M make them more unbearable than most. Hard to believe the Bear coached at both…
I do embrace myspace (unlike Thomas), drive only Japanese cars, I LOVE McDonald’s and the kangaroo meat that composes their burgers (didn’t think it was real beef did you???), Wal-Mart is great, and at least the Big East gives us great basketball (the football does suck). I also enjoy the hell out of “To Catch A Predator”. I only wish they would use Coach Jackie Sherrill to castrate the pervs after they leave the house (allegedly). My iPod and iTunes is filled with everything from John Coltrane to Johnny Cash, from System of a Down to 2Pac.
I dislike puss rock bands (Matchbox 20, Good Charlotte), the new crap that is supposed to be rap/hip hop (and I quote “Crank Dat Soulja Boy” is what’s “hot” in the streets), Fox News, CNN, Stuart Scott, old people who wear shorts with tennis shoes and black socks, and jackassedness in general.
Memphis Tigers (men’s basketball only)
Memphis Grizzlies (there’s only 547 fans now. Someone died a few weeks ago)
Anything else, feel free to email me. Or better yet, post a comment.

Yee Haw…I love that show I own the DVD collection. I learned myself how to read by age 15 and I finally learned how to write at the University of Bama when I was a 4th year freshman. I love my mom/sister, slim jims and indoor plumbing. These two Vol fans have allowed us to write for their site. For bastards in orange they’re good people. Here’s my pic below. rtr!!!
People say I resemble Lord Saban!! I knows they’re just fooling with me
The moderator isn’t a writer or a SEC fan in general. The moderator is a chick that went to UNC. The moderator was suckered into this position by one of the writers. The moderator’s picture is somewhere on this site in post, but you will have to look for it. 😉
