And The Winner Is.....4 Real This Time Folks

Well here it is folks! This is the post you have all been waiting for. I know the suspense is killing you. After my teaser post yesterday folks started getting hostile :) . So I figured I better reveal the answer and the winner before I get tracked down by an angry mob. Well now that I have run through all of that let me get on with things. And the answer is.....

The nickname of Cman started way back my freshman year of high school. It really only stuck because some silly freshman girls thought it sounded funny. The actual person that started the whole thing was the varsity basketball coach Steve. He first called me Cman and like I said once the girls heard it it and thought it funny it stuck. That stupid Cman nickname has stuck every since. I really don't mind and many friends from high school still tease me about it to this day.

OK already what the F does the C stand 4? Well I have to admit to a bit of what the lawyers would call a leading question. I really did think though that at least one person would be creative enough to pull out the winning answer, unfortunately there WAS NOT a winning guess :( . There were many creative guesses though. My favorites being Common by Hari of at GotChance - A Geek's Blog, and Crash by Magia at A Public Apology.

Dang Cman you are long winded :) . All this crap and you still haven't said the what the answer is. Here it is for real this time. The answer is:

The C doesn't stand for anything other than C. When setting up plays coach would always tend to call one guy A man another B man another C man and so on. I always tended to be at the 3 position and thus ended up almost always being Cman. So I guess in a way the C really doesn't stand for anything. Hmmmm I hope no one thinks it was a trick question. And if you do go up a paragraph and read sentence 3.

Well now that you have all endured what is probably the longest winded winning announcement in blogging history. Let me announce the winner of the losers :) . I wrote down all the entries on slips of paper, placed them in a bowl and had my 10 year old daughter pick out the winner.

Let us all give a big Congratulations to Lori over at

A Cowboy's Wife



Her guess if, you want to know, was very fitting - Cowboy. Lori has won herself $20. And since I am feeling a bit chipper today also stop by her other blog B Money Savvy.

Once again Congrats Lori. I will be contacting you shortly to send you out your winnings. It isn't much but it is a good way to start the holiday weekend.



later all and have a profitable and productive blogging day

Yours Truly

I read somewhere on an a-list blog not too long ago that you shouldn't apologize for not posting. Well, I didn't agree when I read it and still don't agree with it now.

I have had some unexpected unplanned events that have taken quite a bit of my time since Sunday evening. I would like to take this moment to apologize to all of you for not being a bit more prepared for an event like this. I will be working in the future to build up a few articles for times like this.

Well that is it I am really pressed for time and I am doing this via cell phone so the comment section was easier (I subscribe to the feed on my phone) for me to post this. I will hopefully be back to business of blogging by the weekend.
