I posted this on the smackboard, but I wanted to post it here as well. These are the memories I will always have of him.
I never got the chance to actually meet Semper, but for 2 years we have talked through emails, phone calls, and on the rivals message boards. When I first started posting on the smackboard (over 2 years ago-wow), I thought Semper was at times really harsh on Jax. He made it a point to email me and explain to me how it worked here. From that point on, I "got it". From emails and phone calls that we shared I knew he cared about alot of the posters here. He often spoke of Bo because he knew I was always asking about him. I think he thought of you Bo, as family. He thought Becca was something really, really special. He spoke of Alice and would tell me to go check out a thread on the Irish board. He had alot of fun over there. And believe it or not, he really thought alot about Homer and JD.
Semper had a way of using adjectives. I mean seriously, the guy could have a paragraph full of them for just one sentence. Some of my favorites started out with "sissy, slack-jawed, punk" lol
He was all over the place when it came to fan pages. If you've never checked out your fanpage you should, because there is a high chance that Semper has posted on it.
He hated basketball and often gave me a hard time because I love it, I will miss him doing that.
No one could say more with "GFYS" "STFU" or "Sounds great....die in a fire" better than him. lol
I know he enjoyed the banter with IPD. If IPD lived here I could see them two being really good friends and probably drinking way too much bourban.
Me, Semper, Marvin(mcanes), Kool, Bo, Seminiferous, and others had some really fun times on the Hokie Board.
Bo, I read where you mentioned his sigs. Damn did anyone go through more sigs than him? When I viewed sigs, I remember there was one day that he went through 4. lol ~ If anyone wants to see them you can go to his fan page and look at them under his pics.
I liked how he had certain names or references for some of us here. Like Boss, horse and buggy, Nurse Hatchet, Snotty, 696969, Chimps at the mall, Princess, pimp monkey, JDelete, Slingblade-biscuits & mustard, etc...I will miss him calling me Lizzy.
