Avast Me Hearties!
« on: September 19, 2011, 08:40:43 AM »
Today is International Talk Like Pirate day!

This here event has a special sig-nifee-cance on skatingforums.com because a beloved member of our crew, Gary, brought it to the forums with a goodly amount of swashbuckling that lightened up the "Non-Skating Discussions" forum with good humor and plain ol' fun. 

Gary sadly passed away too young a few years ago, but in his memory, I ask everyone to hoist a tankard of ale in honor of good old Gary.  Somewhere in the ether, he's wearing an eye patch!

Raise the flag, ye scurvy dogs!



Yo Ho to Gary!
