    Maybe this belongs in Off Topic, but...

    Since we're halfway through the regular season already, I thought this was a cool idea for a thread: Which NFL player best represents you as a bassist and why? My pick would be Brad Johnson of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Why? Because like Brad, I get the job done, but people seldom notice.

  2. Did you put your head into your scanner to get this cool pic for your avatar? @ Hategear

    Sorry, can't contribute to the actual topic as I have no idea about sports ;)
  3. I guess Jeramy Shocky just cause he can take a big hit and act like nothing happened and then go and make a big play.

    My favorite player is Donovan McNabb (Yeah, I know- he's having a bad year), but as a bassist, I'm more like Marshall Faulk. I am (gawd this sounds egotistical) a constant thhreat. When I'm in your band, I can help you with my playing, singing, showmanship, songwriting, or whatever. I am not the best at any of these, but I'm good at ALL of them, and will use all to help my group succeed.

    I've always liked the nameless guys on the offensive line, and sort of think of myself that way as a player. The guys that open the holes, protect the passer, pull and make the block to spring the big run. My job is to make the "star" look good, not to draw attention to myself.

    Anthony Muñoz comes to mind immedately, although he's retired. First class player, and a true first class person as well. I would be honored to be compared to him, as a bassist.

  15. jim otto, former center for the raiders.

    always in the middle of everything, big, mean, plays through broken bones (strings), bad sprains (blown fuses & tubes) and likes to hit things really hard.

    i wanted to go with orenthal, but basstriaxis slashed his way into the lead.
