Why did you pick your user name?

Yes I am bored. I have jogged in today's bitter cold, finished lunch, and am now looking for some good track talk. Since I can't find any I thought I would start something pointless just to get minds turning.

I picked my user name because my wife's maiden name is Newton and she has always said that I was her third choice.

There are a lot of user names with XC followed by numbers. What do the numbers represent?

Any others want to share why they chose their user name until some real talk gets started?

My first official work email address was department name followed by first four letters of last name. Mathking was too good give up.

I was listening to Elton John's Madman Across the Water when yappi asked for a name.

Mine came from a video game, but I'm only telling which game if you guess correctly. That should liven things up around here, no?

HINT #1: The video game is not exclusive to a particular console.

HINT #2: The video game was not Star Fox. Slippy Toad was a character from that video game. My screen name is not Slippy.

Future hints may be shared, but I wanna see some guesses first.

I just used my name because I think that people hiding behind anonymity gives some people permission to say things that they wouldn't say if you knew who they are.

PatHelgerman was taken and CoachHowardKilledMyRaccoon was too long, so I went with Psycho_Dad. Seemed appropriate.

CoventryTrackXCguy, because I went to Coventry High School, ran track/ Cross country, am a fan of all Coventry sports, but my area of expertise (relatively) is XC/Track. Didn't want to give my real name as I didn't want people to know my real life identity, although I may have, scattered on m many posts, given enough clues that if someone digs, there may be enough info to deduce my name. As I have for a couple people around here. Right, Mr. Scott Mercer? (1983 state champ)

Seek Up
Favorite song by Dave Matthews Band. Don't recall if I used the same moniker for JJHuddle or cinciprepsports.com (if that even was a blog - I may be making that up...).

I'm a fan of the running sports. My kids were Taylor YellowJackets. Carried it with me from the huddle.

Never hid behind a screen name. Everyone I knew was aware of my identity. If I met someone from the discussions I always introduced myself. Most of the people I knew aren't around anymore. Met ccrunner609 at a St. Xavier meet. Met Lancermania at a GCL meet. There used to be a lot from Cincinnati but very few are around now.
