    Red Sox fans, how did you pick your moniker and how do you think our Sox are going to do this year?

    Fascinating monikers on this forum. Many pay tribute to their favorite ball players or something else that means something special to them. I chose Carnie Wilson because she is one of my favorite singers. Did you know she is the daughter of American 1960s pop icon Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys?

    As for the Sox, I have complete faith in Ben and John. They are putting together the next great Red Sox team. I'm willing to wait and enjoy.

     I've noticed some threads have negative posts. Please bring only positive thoughts to this thread. Remember to be thoughtful and respectful of others.

    • Alibiike pays tribute to the great American actor and comedian Joe E. Brown.
    • Brown was a sports enthusiast, both in film and personally.  He was also a television and radio broadcaster for the New York Yankees  in 1953. 

      Brown's sports enthusiasm also led to him becoming the first president of PONY Baseball and Softball when the organization was incorporated in 1953. He continued in the post until late 1964 when he retired. Later he traveled additional thousands of miles telling the story of PONY League, hoping to interest adults in organizing baseball programs for young people.  .

    Bogart was one of my favorites.  He had several great roles, but Casa Blanca was a flawless movie.  I can always find some minor detail in every movie I'd like to change, or that doesn't make sense.

    I've seen Casa Blanca maybe 50 times, and still haven't spotted the flaw.

    IRT the RS, playoff bound.

    Casablanca, a classic, won the Epstein brothers the 1943 Academy Award for Best Screenplay.

     USS Higbee (DD/DDR-806) was a Gearing-class destroyer in the United States Navy during World War II. She was the first US warship named for a female member of the U.S. Navy,being named for Chief Nurse Lenah S.
