What's the story behind your gym name?

Just seemed appropriate

Where do you get most of your fighters names?

My fighters are all recruited. Any names I could come up with myself would violate the code of conduct

Anything else you'd like to add.

I have a sense of humour that pisses people off until they get to know me at which point they love me. Women desire me even though I'm ugly because they know I'll treat them like whores and deep down that's what they really want. When I stay in a hotel I always hide my toothbrush so that the maid doesn't use it to clean the toilet while I'm out.

That pretty much covers it.

eddy-

tubes are easy enough! I don't know if you are handy with a soldering iron but it probably needs a few new caps. Sometimes it is good to leave it on for a while when it hasn't been used so the electrolytics can charge up again. Anyway, if you need help on something don't hesitate to email. I have 20 amps myself plus tube stereo gear so, while i bet slam knows a lot more than i do, I have diagnosed my share of amp problems in my life. book

Terminator Ty - 33 yrs old. Lawrence, KS ... mailman with USPS (I will I-mail u DoD) ... I think I am 3 hrs shy of a Master's degree in public relations/advertising from The Pittsburg State University (small Division II school - a former football powerhouse) ... I got 3 kids, 2 dogs and 1 wife .... I watch sports on TV, but it's mostly all about the family and work .... my Dad bowled on a team called the TERMINATORS when I was little ... they were really good, and it seemed like a fit for this game when I started .... my fighter names are family, sports or music related ... I can't play a guitar or anything cool .... I write well .... if you guys get a band together, I can produce some kick ass lyrics and maybe mix for you (undergrad in broadcasting) .... the game is very, very addictive .... I'm a stat geek, but I've never been much for RPG (closest being Zelda or the original Final Fantasy when I was a kid) book
