When the bash was going on a couple of years ago, we all know how the trip to Vegas went. One person that helped me out was Vegas Dave. he loaned me $$ that I have not paid back yet, and I have no great reason why I haven't. I am putting that out here because the guy was ALWAYS standup with me and other posters, and he got the raw end of the deal in many facets on SBR and from me. I truly feel like a shit for what I did. Time to fix that. I am sorry again Vegas. Email me again with your Paypal addy.

Teela, I have apologized already. You and I were friends at one point. I would like to think we were good friends. We had many late night conversations about things unrelated to any sports forum, and when the bash came you were the one I really wanted to meet face to face. I miss having my female doppelganger around to talk to. To you I am sorry. I don't expect any change in our current situation, but just know I miss you as a friend.

I put this on here because it is easy for people to accept the myths written about others on this or any other forum. I have said and done some dumb things, but I have not lied on this forum about anything (except the man scaping thing I guess). I see Vegs Dave writing on here, and I know it pisses him off knowing I should have payed him back a LONG time ago. Time to make things right.

Hope the people I want to read this does.

Have a great day.

*Sigh*

The only reason I never called you out publicly was because I didn't really want it publicized that I lent you money. Didn't want everyone thinking I was some gullible idiot that hands out money to everyone.

Now that its out there, I'd like to point out that when I did, I knew there was risk involved. Much like giving money to an alcoholic and hoping he doesn't spend it on alcohol, giving money to a gambler and hoping they don't spend it on gambling comes with its share of risk. I had a feeling I'd probably never see that money again, but it wasn't a life-altering amount for me at the time (who knew SBR would fire me a mere month or so later?). And while I'm not a believer in karma per se, I do like to think that if I'm ever down on my luck enough to have to ask around for money, SOMEONE would say yes... so, by that logic, I should be the someone on the other end every now and then.

I've long since written this money off as a loss. Will shoot you my email address, and if you really aren't bullshitting this time, I'm happy to forgive.

Never made any secret of what I think of Casper and never knew he owed money to a poster. Doubt this gesture will make things square with some but paying back a dept even if late is the right thing to do so props on that. Maybe a little interest on the loan would earn a couple more props.

I'm guessing it was in the 100-250 range?

15% interest is fair.

Enough with the interest talk. If after two years I actually get paid back, that in and of itself is miracle enough.

Excellent editing skills, SIR!

lol, I'll post it again.

Unless you borrowed $5000, there's no reason for you ignoring the debt for so long. Coming back two years later and making a thread about a 3-digit debt is just stupid. You're not gonna get any brownie points.

I mean comm the fok on.

Don't lend money to strangers. In fact don't even lend money to friends and family. This is my motto.
