I thought it might be interesting to start a thread finding out why we chose our user names, some are obvious, but others not so much.

Mine (mrbowling300) is due to myself bowling 50 of my 53 years, and that I've bowled 12 300 games.

Well, at the time I created mine (I also used to use it for an Email address), I was only using AMF bowling balls, had bowled a 300 game and considered myself a true bowler.

900 Global has since taken over the AMF bowling ball account and rarely releases any balls under the AMF name anymore. Therefore, I have since switched to Motiv balls made right here in Michigan.

I have since stopped using AMF300bowler every where I can. I now use SpinBowler300 as it has been pointed out to me that I throw a mostly spinner ball. Plus, if I decide to switch ball companies again I won't feel the need to change my Email address.

One of the first forums I joined was Detroitgasprices.com. I wanted to use a "gas" related name and that's what I came up with. It kinda stuck with other forums as well.

Growing up a die-hard Michigan fan, this was a creative spin on the Hail to the Victors and the colors of U of M, maize and blue.

Used to be my email address, but have since switched.

The high school football coach at my dad's high school (Saint Ignace LaSalle) was Barry Pearson, a key player in the 1969 Michigan upset of Woody Hayes and Ohio State, 24-12. I think that's where the Michigan love started in the family and has stuck.

Go Blue!

LOL I have a corporate email :-)

Having Penske in my email is a great honor, it truly is.

Mine is one of the obvious ones.  I'm old and I bowl.  Seems like I get older every day.

"themrfreeze" is a play off of my last name.  Eons ago I was signing up for a website (might have even been a BBS if you remember those) and tried to use "mrfreeze", but it was taken.  Therefore, I became THEmrfreeze, and have continued using it ever since

My handle for this site is one I don't use anywhere else. It is a play on my last name (Boguslawski), given to me by another bowler with a playful sense of humor. It seemed appropriate to use it here.
