    Another solid year. Sadly, I will be much less active this year than in the past. 90% of my RR activity over the years has been while at work. As of yesterday, I am off for 8 months to take care of my little girl (and help train her to cheer for the Raps). So with full time daddy duty in effect, it will be harder to find the time to get onto the RR.

    That said, I still plan to creep a bit from my phone and post occasionally (plus the dynasty league is still full effect). Like the Raps this year, it's been a fun run but like the Raps next year, who knows what the future will hold.
    Here's a pro-tip for the NBA dad: on game nights, right after dinner I take my little boy to the McDonalds indoor playground. While he's burning off his boundless energy on the slides, etc..., I use the free WIFI to stream the Raps games to my tablet. I usually go home at half-time, and tell my wife not to let my son have a nap during the day so most of the time he will fall asleep in the car on the drive back home. Then we put him right to bed so I can watch the rest of the game, and my wife's already had a nice 2-3 hour break with the kid already tucked away. That's a win-win-win for me, my wife and my son. LOL.

    And 'hear, hear' to the RR crew and all the great posters with shout-outs to: Craig, Nilanka, CalRaps, Axel, OldSkool, Jimi, Joey, stooley, MACK (epic drunk posting), and of course, Matt52. Sorry, I know missed a ton of my other favs.

    And Matt: How the heck do you get to 18,000 posts? That's like the Wilt Chamberlain of forum posting. LOL.

    My method is to have kid fed, bathed and in bed by 7:30 the latest. I PVR the 1st quarter, and I'm caught up by half time. But being on the east coast, the early tipoff will be harder to plan around. But congrats on daddyhood! And hope you manage to lurk these parts once in a while.

    Haha, that's one hell of a scheme! Love it! Does McDonald's ever wonder why you show up every Wednesday night without buying anything?

    I can honestly say that I've learned a lot about basketball being a part of this forum (and commenting on the main page prior to the the forum). It's been almost 6 years since I discovered this place. We've got a very intelligent and passionate fanbase that I'm proud to be a part of.

    A hint for how $25 can help you immensely... $20 for a fisher price basketball hoop (helps with learning to walk and hand-eye coordination) and $5 for a foam Raptors finger. My 2-and-half-year-old little guy now asks me if basketball is on tonight, when I get home from work. When he tells his mother that he's a Raptor, I get all the basketball I want! lol


    On a related note, my wife says she's thankful for Raptors Republic because it gives me a place to talk to and vent with likeminded Raptors wackos, so she doesn't have to hear about it.

    I hit google earlier this year in search of a message board that hosted Raptors fans as loyal and as dedicated as I am. I quickly found out that there are so many incredibly passionate Raptors fans on this forum, and it has been a pleasure to partake in discussions here. Not only that, I have learned so much about the Raptors and about the NBA during my time here.

    So thank you to everyone for setting up this forum! Here's to being here when we get our first championship, no matter how long that will take

    Thanks to all Raptors fans everywhere!

    Other than the obvious (here's looking at you calgaryrapsfan), are there any other Raptor fans representing the 403/780?

    Lol, does anyone remember the actual cause for LeBron's laughter? Probably one of the funniest things I've seen on an NBA floor.

    For some reason, all the YouTube vids showing it have been removed.

    Haha, nice. I wish it showed the full extent of it. LeBron pisses himself for a good 5 minutes.

    You guys are all pretty awesome! I feel the genuine respect between us all.

    Thanks for giving us a forum to express our views. I can't wait to read and discuss the draft, free agency and the up-coming season.

    If you are truly a Raptor fan, then you need to be apart of the republic.

    Cheers!
