    When i first signed up on this board with thebigragu as a serious profile to go with, it was because of letsgojets and his absolute love for chad pennington. It was the first time i was actually going to be myself (including real life). At that time I was on top of the world had alot of money a great wife( I thought) and a son, money ruled my whole life it made me in charge of everything around me and gave me and my family total security no matter how i achieved it. Life was good and for a kid from the street i though i finally made it.
    I was done with the back and forth to county and court and prison, I had lawyers now and i had invested my money wisely in legitimate businesses in Florida and was just cruising along drunk or high most of the time, playing golf buying cars buying a house playing life, because in actuality i had no idea how any of this **** worked ,society and families and work and kids, so i just threw money at it, that's all i did, and i still loved my jets because its the only thing i ever had good if you can call it that from my childhood.

    So i became a pretty regular poster here and shot the **** talked about the jets got in on some of the arguments, Started alot of arguments made e friends made e enemies. Then the bottom came out Two of my associates were brought down in a combined dea fbi sting. The two worst agencies that can come after anyone. that was The bret favre year i believe and I was so happy about that but at the same time paranoid. Around that same time one of the guys threw out my name which involved alot of other peoples names which made my life a living hell. At this point it put all eyes on me, I had always played the game well learned it from old timers and kept a job worked that job and had an accountant to handle the taxes and the show me the money aspects the feds and irs look for. Anyhow my life got bad i couldn't make a buck as the heat was on me and no one would even come close to any type of business dealings, so all i had left was my businesses that would never be able to keep me and my wife in the place or in the style SHE was accustomed to.

    The money was gone soon after so was she and my son, I got out on bail and awaited trial. That ushered in my attack on all People of jewish faith because her her family and her lawyers stripped me bare. I always kept emergency money along with what was ever in the accounts she took it all and said you have a problem with it me and my mother go to the cops, it was one grave i knew i could never dig so i had to let it go. Sanchez becomes the Qb and i could care less but it gives me something to look at something to enjoy and with the year this is going to be these ****s better not even think of going to the superbowl. There would be no way in hell i could even enjoy it let alone celebrate it, my posting is drunken rage most of the time as my disease has taken over.

    The ass holes are playing lights out in the playoffs of course, and the only thing i got left is a small tv a couch and a laptop my friend gave me and im looking around at an apartment i bought for my little sister for when she came home from college near the beach, drunk and thinking ill never resurrect from this im going to go out like i came in like my father, broke and dead by 37. We win the wildcard and i couldnt be happier..now i want them to win it all take out the chargers and finish it..didn't happen. Next year was the same with the jets and me in and out of court and finally i beat it get a year and a day probation and fines that will assure anything i ever made will be taken as i guess some say it should be. Im in and out of salvation armys detox's halfway houses trying to quit , no matter what i try i cant stop, i been drinking since 14 my body just seems to not accept life without alcohol

    Pretty much stop posting at this point as i cant really, i leave the wc of Florida and go over to the east coast to go in on a few pizza places with old friends from the neighborhood trying to thank me, help me out for not singing in court those last 2 years. Work my ass off stay out of trouble but im already dead and i know it ,I sleep with a bottle by my bed i cant even move unless i take a drink, and that's been the last 3 years now up to that point. Finally my liver shuts down i die in an ambulance go into a coma and wake up few days later. No insurance in Florida no bed no money no bed my last 80g is gone, my grandfather gets me to ny so i can die home.

    Lay in the basement in a room i haven't been in since i was a kid and use a phone to lurk the board and see whats going on for a few weeks back n forth to mt sanai and in mt sanai when i can catch a signal. Doctors tell me i got a month at he very most as the lungs will just keep collapsing at this point and the portal hypertension is going to make me bleed out anyday. God gets involved the doctors are shocked maybe just maybe a living donor partial will work but they seriously doubt it give me no chance of surviving the surgery and even worse after the surgery if i do make it through. pops comes up with the rest of the cash payment suddenly surgery seems like it might be just the ticket...

    Come back to JI a little more humbled after finding God and him giving me a second chance. Hope that everyone will notice im not the same ******* and will also give me a chance. Rebound in business *Totally Legitimate) bang alot of chicks, stay in good shape, find an angel, i marry her, get custody of my son my new wife gets pregnant we lose it, i make a good living she makes a better one, she gets pregnant again, Use jets insider as my recovery program throughout these last 2 and a half years annoying the fuk out of green, geno sucks vick is a dog killer....Jets insider going off the air.....

    For anyone who took the time to read it and even those that didnt. I make it a point to say thank you to everyone who helped me in any way during my crazy life. And even though i dont know you guys face to face there were times there you kept me from eating a ****ing bullet and other people, and I thank each and everyone of you btches. cya on the other side i went emo and i dont give a fuk

I'm 100 times better off than I was and just being able to laugh at the craziest sh!t that we posted was like a form of therapy. So, thanks.

    And thanks for sharing that ragu.
    Hampur wouldn't have been the same without you two faggots.

    Ragootz it's admirable with all the **** you had to endure and excuses you had to give up you fought and here to tell the story. Thanks for sharing and respect you as a man.

    I know what you mean about mean about these guys. I signed on this board in 2008 but always lurking. When I my wife and I were going to get a divorce I started reading the hampur and you guys made me laugh at a real ****ty time when inwas going to lose my wife and two sons. I would post LOL at the funny sh!t you guys would say. I wish I would have jumped right but felt like an outsider.

    I used to take life to serious and this place taught me to laugh at myself (esp southside). Just like everyone f()cks with you here is what my friends do to me. Seeing you take the jokes from these guys taught me to laugh at myself and not be so angry. I hope you find ur sobrierity

    To all thanks for the laughs. My wife and I have worked out our diff happily married and love putting my boys to bed every night.

    I'm just glad you didn't go to Joan Rivers doctor. JI would have been a duller place all these years. Glad things are working out for you. I still wish you threw batteries at Al Sharpton though.

    My digits are rife with carpal tunnel syndrome after working (nee:posting) all day, so I'll type out what these old craggly hands can muster.

    Ragu pardon the pun but this really is a rags to riches type story.

    Everyone can tell you're not the same guy you were during your angry phase, remember the 'whatever happened to men?' post? (seriously now I don't even know why)
    I was pretty sure that was aimed at me for some reason, and I was literally terrified - people like me don't f uck with people like you, lolz.

    I was waiting for the old ragu to show up when you came back, but he never did, so kudos to you for crawling through all that s hit and coming out clean on the other side.
    You can dish it out but you can take it as well (a whole lot of it) and I can respect that in anyone.

    I hope all the stupid jokes and jabs have helped everyone here, it's certainly been theraputic for me as well. At least I know I'm not wasting my time posting funny and stupid things, hell I would have never thought it would help people. And when those times come where I'm just not into life, like at all, this place always lifts my spirits, and I always come away with a laugh.


    Of course the same goes for you too southside - the man takes a ton of crap and he keeps coming back. It's not working fellas, so maybe we should stop...... nah....


    dmitexxi, you should NEVER feel like any sort of 'outsider' with this group - if anything, we're nothing but a group of outsiders to begin with.
    We're always looking for new blood to poke fun at and gain new material.

    Honestly I don't have a whole hell of a lot of friends on the 'outside' anymore; moved away, died, lost touch etc. Frankly you collection of 'tards are the ones I see and talk to the most.


    And that is not a bad thing...not at f ucking all.
