Welcome to the site, man! How'd you find us?

(secretly hoping you're not an Ohio State fan...)

I'm sorry to hear that man.

Welcome to the site though. You'll find plenty of great discussions all over this site. Also, happy holidays

The premium membership should reflect on your account within 48 hours or so. Maybe a bit longer with the holidays and all.

I'm actually not a fan of any specific college team. I just despise pretty much everything Ohio State related.

Again, welcome to the site, man. Glad to have you on board!

Welcome! Do you happen to be a fan of Jesse Eisenberg?

Glad to have you bro! The game can be tough at first, but some (not me) take to it right away. It's the best fantasy mma experience going.

As far as forums, I say you'd be hard pressed finding a better community. Minimal trolls, maximum quality posters.

I know how car accidents can effect a person's life. I've been hit by four different people. I actually got tboned on Tuesday night by an old woman who hopped a median and was driving the wrong way on a three lane highway.

I find life evens itself out though. As terrible as my luck is... I also have incredibly good luck at times. It's Christmas, I got to spend time with my wife and family, and I'm stoked.

I hope everyone in the Playground family had a Merry Christmas or night of Chanukah! If you're an atheist or Jehovah's Witness, I hope you had a good day! Take care, and welcome to our new member! Way to go on going premium!

Welcome to the site. Great choice on going premium. Even if you don't win any money, its still nice to be rid of all the ads. Good luck with the picks and wagers

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I bet living in Columbus is absolutely lovely wearing the Maize and Blue. You must make friends at every bar you go to.
