I've been registered here for a long time (over a year) and have posted intermittently but have never really introduced myself. Some of you may know me either as RDFiato51or JusticeServed28 (or both) from Yankees.com, the place where I began Internet baseball posting a little over a year ago. I have "lurked" at several other places, including FanHome.com/BaseballBoards.com and alt.sports.baseball.ny-yankees (on Usenet) but now only consider myself a regular at a place called MVP Baseball Forums, a site that probably most of you have never heard of (The "Bronx-Bomber" :) might remember it as Tenthman). I used to post a lot elsewhere but found that doing so consumed most of my free time; hence, I've cut back a lot but still enjoy reading what others' opinions are on various subjects.

Anyway, despite the favoritism implicit in the two aforementioned user names, I really don't have a clear favorite Yankee any more. Bernie might be the closest at this point.

Here's some personal information about me. My real name is Randy. I am from upstate New York (specifically, the Capital Region). I am Korean. Roughly three hours ago, I turned 18. I am a freshman/sophomore computer science major at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The reason why I wrote "freshman/sophomore" is that, while I entered as part of the class of 2005, I have thirty credits from Advanced Placement exams, which technically makes me a sophomore (and prevented me from registering for some freshman interdisciplinary courses). The only thing with RPI though is that, in the class of 2005, the male/female ratio is about 4:1.

I enjoy classical music and jazz, although I will listen to just about anything except rap. I play trumpet (not well enough to do so professionally, though.... I have enough power to produce close to a professional pitch range, but, as in pitching, power without control doesn't get you very far :P).

I also casually play chess (not very well, though). If anyone wants to play against me, I have an account for Yahoo! games. I also play fantasy baseball (I'm in six leagues).

I am what you would call a computer geek. I run the Linux operating system on my computer and use it for dabbling in computer programming. Hey, I'm planning to go into that sort of thing for a career, so may as well start now. :)

My screen name on the AIM service is JusticeServed28. I'm usually logged on but often leave an away message (cable modems rock... wait... no, please don't tell me that you have a T3 connection! ;)); you will need some good timing to catch me.

That's me in a (very big) nutshell. :)

This site is forever changing and always for the better most people here are hard core Yankees fan and the guy who runs the show (Jim) is dedicated to having the best site on the planet.

I remember you well, you always had something intelligent to say, whether discussing Yankees baseball or just conversation. :)

Glad you found us here, we are a little profane at times, but it's a great place to discuss baseball and anything else!

You may remember me, I always end my posts with keep smiling...:)

Jean: I live in a suburb of Albany, about 10 minutes away from Hertiage Park (where the Albany-Colonie Yankees used to play) and about 30 minutes from Schenectady, where I have a part-time data entry job.
