    OK figured it was time for this.

    I was jumping around the soccer forums on Bigsoccer one day and came across a post by the infamous Helghallen. I was intrigued by his sig line and after one click and four days of waiting.........the obsession began!

    Anyone else what to share?

    I remember seeing Stogey's sig line about winning the BS Cup and thinking, "wha?" So I moseyed into the forum to see what was up...

    was posting on the uscho.com forums (united states college hockey online) and they had several hattrick threads similar to our "hattrick thread" oddly enough, so i figured it was something hockey related... growing up a jock i played every sport imaginable until highschool it was only hockey and soccer so it still seemed interesting

    Chalk up two on Stogey's account. He emailed me about signing up, almost didnt when I saw all the crap i had to read when getting started. Matt, that reminds me, you're going to be served with a lawsuit from my wife to cover time and punitive damages for all the hours I've wasted on HT.

    That must be a Class Action lawsuit because i heard my wife talking about it as well.

    She also mentioned something about Ht not being like real life and I told her her Soaps were stupid:D

    I remember it started on "Business, Media and Entertainment > Games" forums as I was looking for something to kill time while at work. Originally I started off playing Sunday League, but after a while I realized it just wans't what I wanted. Someone mentioned Hattrick, and I jumped in.

    I think that was about 2 years ago. Wow.

    Back when Halo 2 came out I played a few games with BS members and overhead Qamle and Andy P talking about hattrick. I looked it up a couple days later and now I'm addicted.

    Aw, none of you guys showed it to me. I was playing EPL fantasy soccer and I saw a group called www.hattrick.org with a huge amount of members so i joined the group and went to the website. Been hooked ever since and that was like three years or so ago. I remembering having Tugay and Friedel on my EPL fantasy team...

    I got Winning Eleven 7 for X-mas a month before, and was looking through the game forums on BS to read about it and 8 coming out in the near future. The Hattrick forum had been created by then and something about the name made me click to surf the forum.

    I started reading the original HT thread that was located here and went to the site and started reading about it and reading through the rules. The "Free" participation pulled me in and I signed up. During the waiting period, I was constantly on the site, especially the community section looking for guides and reading and reading and reading about HT. The addiction is still as powerful now unfortunately. ;)

    KopiteinKC started me out. He mentioned it one night during our routine trip to a local pub. Got the link the next Monday and here I am 2.5 years later. Moderator of this fine forum and GM of the game I love.

    Thanks to all of you for making the game fun for me in the beginning and for continuing to make it so. I've made tons of friends from this game and met lots of people. Can't ask for more than that.

    I found it on my own. I was bored and typed "online soccer management game" into Google. First link. Wish I'd found it a lot earlier.

    Got a give props to the KC Contingent: Mark_A, kopitenkc, Helghallen and Khunscoot.

    I'd been exploring soccer diversions while lurking in BS. Signed up for HT and had four of the best guys as HT mentors & once a year beer buddies.

    Course, to show you how good it did me, I'm a div V lifer. LOL ;)

    i can't name one person - it was the hattrick thread that got my started. one day when i was bored and browsing the main page on big soccer i came across it and checked out hattrick. i signed up right away but it took me six days to get my team. spent all that time reading newbie guides and such and was hooked from the start.

    so props to all of you who were posting in the hattrick thread circa one year ago.
