Mine is similar to his ^^ I joined in May of 06

I remember when Venus used to be outside the top 5. How ironic now she plays worse but is ranked in the top 5

Re: Who was in the top twenty when you first joined this board?

I just love these old rankings. Seeing Lindsay ranked as number one or in the top ten when they came on the forum is .
I never knew Lindsay Davenport inspire so many.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

Yep. Many of the old posters from back in the day have changed their names---some I remember, others I have no clue who they are now. Still the maturity level was way higher than now
