Play and Coach hockey, approaching 52 and been playing goalie for about 25yrs now.  Still in net a couple nights a week so with goalie and fishing netminder fit and my number has been 34 since switching to goalie.  Yes age is a state of mind for me also as my wife wants me to stop skating but I am afraid I will fall apart if I do, and they keep calling me to play so I am still competitive.  When the calls stop I will know it's time to hang them up.

I was a cadet in the fire academy during my Jr and Sr year of high school, and one of my classmates started calling me Firefighter Tom and it just stuck. 32 was my number in baseball and is my lucky number
Hug a firefighter and feel warm all over.

If it passes the ruler test, put it in the ice chest. Hook it and cook it.

Mine is pretty simple...fish killer.

Side story...several years ago, a buddy and I were fishing the NAIFC tournament at Wamplers. While most there were driving their quads and sleds, we rolled up in a golf cart. A local news reporter came up to us and made a few light-hearted comments about our set up including giving us our new and current nickname...Team Caddyshack  ;D

SHaRPS - First person in the state of RI to shoot a perfect 100x100 in a registered Handicap(longer distance) ATA Trap tournament(RI STATE SHOOT). I also have tons of other Trap, skeet, sporting clays and rifle victories so it just stuck and spread.

When I was a kid I absolutely loved to go ice fishing with my dad.  One spot we would fish for bluegill's was a small lake where the fish would go +25' deep in the dead of winter.  The gear we used was pretty simple - either Schooley's or just rods with wire line holders in place of a reel that you would just wind the line onto.  In shallow water those setups are okay to use, but in that deeper water you needed to do a "hand-to-rod tip" maneuver to bring your fish up, and at 7-8 years old I hadn't quite mastered that technique.  Instead I would set the hook and take off running - sometimes I pulled the fish all the way up and of the hole, other times I remember running about to where I figured the fish was just below the ice, drop the rod, run back to the hole, and then try landing the bugger by hand lining it up and through the hole.  Thinking about it, I imagine my dad got quite a kick out of watching this.

Anyway, one of those times out at that spot the fish catching was slow to nothing and I had been at the hole sitting on my bucket watching my bobber for quite a length of time.  It's been 50 years, but I still remember my dad saying to me "you better get a bite soon or you're gonna end up with a bad case of bucket rump" - of course referring to my patented technique of jumping up and running to alleviate that issue.  After that day the reference "bucket rump" came to mean between my dad and I that it was a slow day of catching with not much biting.  I picked Bucket Rump simply because it's a term that reminds of days I truly cherished fishing with my dad.
