  1. Here's hoping that everyone out here has a Merry Christmas and that the New Year brings you a lot of happiness. Best wishes to you and your families.
  2. Yep. Surely no hockey talk from me, jerseydiehardwhaler.
  3. Yeah, I don't talk hockey at all. Crazy crowd for return of hockey to Worcester last Sa****ay night. ECHl team up there pulled in more than 12000 people!
  4. I am not "taking the word" of anybody, jerseydiehardwhaler. I have made up my own mind about why I think it would be waste of time to meet Mark in person. I have made up my mind based on the way Mark insults people on this message board over and over and over and over again. I have made up my mind based on the way he calls people "idiot" and "imbecile" and "moron" and "dip$hit" on this message board over and over and over and over again. I do not think that is the way a mature adult should act. I do not think his insults do anything to make this message board a better place. And if Mark is really the great guy you say he is in person then I wonder why he acts like such an insulting bully on a message board. Why the need for two personalities? We all have choices in life about who we want to share our time with. I choose not to spend time meeting people and sharing time with people who regularly insult people. I choose not to spend time meeting people and sharing time with people who call other people "morons" and "dip$hits" and "imbeciles" and "idiots". I choose not to spend time meeting people and spending time with people who - if you are telling the truth about Mark being a great guy in person - have two different personalities. One that they use on message board and another they use in person. I choose to spend the time in my life with my wife and my parents and my friends and my co-workers and my fellow volunteers who act like mature adults and don't insult people. It is that simple.
  5. Based on the way you act out here, why would anyone want to go up to you at a game? So you can call them "moron" and "dip$hit" and "imbecile" and "idiot" in person? Yeah, that sounds like it would be a blast.
  6. I wouldn't be interested in a steel cage match. Wrestling was never my thing. I played soccer and basketball in college. I play rugby and row crew now. And based on the way Mark acts out here I don't think the two of us would be exchanging cordial pleasantries in person.
  7. Afraid of what? Mark is a grown adult who acts like insulting schoolyard bully on a hockey message board. My not wanting to waste time meeting him has nothing to do with being afraid. I'm just not going to give up time I enjoy with my Dad to waste time arguing with a stranger at hockey games. Mark and I have two different ideas of how a mature adult should act on a internet message board. That's not going to change because we meet face to face. And if Mark "couldn't be nicer" in person, I have to wonder why he acts like an insulting schoolyard bully out here? Why not the same personality in person and on the message board?
  8. Mark, I would say to you in person exactly what I have said to you out here. EXACTLY. I would ask you why you feel the need to insult people on this message board over and over and over and over again. I would ask you if calling other people "idiot" and "moron" and "dip$hit" and "imbecile" on this message board makes you feel better about yourself. I would ask you why you choose to act like an elementary school bully out here. I am willing to bet that you would either have nothing to say in return at all or you would just disagree about your insulting behavior being bullying or you would insult me in person. That's it. Because what else could you do? You can't deny that you insult people over and over and over and over again out here because your insulting posts are here for every body to read. You can't deny that you call people out here "idiot" and "moron" and "imbecile" and "dip$hit" over and over and over again because those insults are in your posts for people to read. You might try to argue that insulting people and calling them "idiots" and "morons" and "dip$hits" and "imbeciles" isn't bullying. But I wouldn't agree. I'd tell you that is precisely the way that bullies in a schoolyard act. So why bother with the farce of a meeting. I'd say in person exactly what I'm writing right now and you would either say nothing at all, insult me in person the way you insult people on this board, or try to argue that insulting people isn't bullying. It would all be a waste of time Mark. We just don't agree about how mature adult people act. We don't agree about it out here and we wouldn't agree in person.
  9. I know there are other people in my life besides Dad. I mentioned some of them in earlier post. There's my wife. My mother. My friends. There are my co-workers. There are my fellow volunteers at the charity organizations and community organizations I work with. I am well aware that there are other people in my life besides my Dad. The reason I mentioned my Dad is because he is the person I attend UConn and Wolf Pack hockey games with. I have no interest in having a "meet and greet" with a grown man who acts like an insulting child on an internet message board. Why? Because if Mark was to act like a mature adult in person at a hockey game, it would make me wonder even more why he can't also just act like a mature adult out here. Why the need for the two different personalities of "Mr. Nice Guy" at in person at hockey games and "Mr. Insult" out here? And if he didn't act any different in person at a hockey game then he does out here, his insults and immaturity would be even more annoying in person. You know what's nutty about this board? That its moderator seems to think the board member who insults people over and over and over and over again out here by calling other people "idiots" and "morons" and "dip$hits" and "imbeciles" is some poor, misunderstood guy who would get along with everybody better if everybody just visited with him at a hockey game.
  10. My wife is receiving training necessary in field of clinical psychology to receive a master's degree. Her instructors are professionals with years of experience in the field. You? What you know about "true internet bullying", you know from engaging in the practice. You're a cl*****ic bully Mark. You demean and insult other people so you can feel better about yourself. You do it on internet and, given how much you challenge people to come meet you "face to face", you also try to do it out in real world. I can't speak for any body else. What I can tell you personally is that my not coming to meet you "face to face, man to man" has nothing to do with me being a coward or not having balls. I am not meeting you face to face because based off the way you act out here, I have no desire to meet you in person. It would be a waste of my time. Time that I enjoy spending with my Dad. Why would I sacrifice time I truly enjoy with my Dad to meet an immature bully? And you have to be joking with "man to man" business. I don't consider you a man, Mark. Based on the way you act out here I consider you a child who lashes out and insults any one who doesn't agree with him. Finally, I don't have anything to "prove" to you. Who the **** are you that you think any one has to "prove" anything to you? At end of the day, we just don't agree on how mature adults should behave. That is it.
  11. It isn't arrogance or ignorance. It is knowledge. My wife has a degree in education and she is working on a master's degree in clinical psychology. And one of her focuses is on the subject of online bullying. Online bullying can take on a lot of different forms and online bullying can vary to a lot of different degrees. My wife would tell you that Mark qualifies as an online bully. And that is based upon her education in the field of clinical psychology. Mark resorts to labeling people who don't agree with him out here and people who challenge his opinions out here as "morons" and "liars" and "idiots" and "imbeciles" and "frauds" and "dip$hits". He demeans people with these labels so he can undermine them and their opinions. My wife would tell you that is behavior that is recognized by mental health professionals as bullying. Mark challenges people who disagree with him out here to meet him in person and say to him face to face what they post out here. And if people re**se to do that he then labels them "cowards" and says they have "no balls" if they will not agree to a physical meeting. My wife would tell you that is manipulative behavior that is recognized as being part of online bullying by mental health professionals. My wife would also tell you that just because the targets of Mark's online bullying don't have their lives altered in some horrible or life altering or disgusting way, that does not mean that Mark isn't guilty of online bullying. It just means that his targets haven't given in to his online bully. When you are an adult and over and over and over and over again you have to resort to labeling people "idiots" and "morons" and "imbeciles" and "dip$hits", you are not behaving in a mature way. When you are an adult and over and over and over and over again you have to challenge people to come confront you in public, you are not behaving in mature way. When Mark acts like this he is acting like a child. He is carrying on like a schoolyard bully. His behavior is what it is. And it certainly is not the the behavior of a mature adult in his 20s or 30s or 40s or more.
  12. Here's the mature way I go about things in my life, Mark. I spend time with my wife and my parents and my friends. I'm preparing for the arrival of my first child. I work hard at a job I love and I volunteer with charity and community organizations. I try to make the city of Hartford and the state of Connecticut a better place. And doing those things is what makes me feel good. Doing those things is how I "grew my pair of balls", Mark. Maybe you should try it, because acting like a 4th grade school yard bully on the internet and in real life when your age says that you should be acting like an adult isn't the mature way to go about things.
  13. What it proves is that I would rather spend time with someone I enjoy (my Dad) at a game then waste time giving an immature bully (you) the satisfaction of stooping to his level. But you keep telling yourself whatever it takes to make yourself feel better, Mark. I truly hope that some day you find a more mature way to feel good about yourself.
  14. The design of modern arenas and ballparks and stadiums with more restaurants and bars and concourse areas that draw fans away from sitting in their seats is definitely having effect on atmosphere in seating areas. Finding the balance of giving people spaces where they can do other **n things in facilities, but also giving people a reason to stay in their seats is challenge of designing modern arenas and ballparks and stadiums. Fans want all the bells and whistles and extras in new arenas and ballparks and stadiums. But how much is too much? When do extras end up threatening to outshine games?
  15. Mark, I'not lowering myself to the level of you. I'm not giving you satisfaction of thinking you call shots and dictate to me when and where and how I interact with you. My not coming to your seat at a UConn game or a WolfPack game or any other game has nothing to do with me not having the balls to say to your face what I say to you out here. I go to UConn games and Wolf Pack games and Yard Goat games and other sporting events with my Dad. Going to the games is time for me to enjoy time with my Dad. I am not taking time away from some thing I enjoy doing to waste time convincing a bully that I have "balls" and I am not a "coward". Why would I take even a minute of time away from some thing I enjoy doing with my Dad to waste my time trying to prove myself to an immature bully? But you know all this. Which is why you make the "come meet me face to face" challenges. Because in your immature mind and bullying mind you know that mature adult people who act their age aren't going to waste their time coming to meet you like a 4th grade kid on the schoolyard. Which then gives you chance to rush out here and puff out your chest out here and claim out here that everyone else is a coward who is afraid to meet you. Whatever makes you feel better about yourself Mark.
