I'll never forget and will always miss him apologizing to Pete for Pete's unfortunate birthday.
When he first learned that I had a bunch of games on tape, I got a PM from him on whatever board we were on at the time, asking me what I had. My idiotic reply of something along the lines of "a bunch of games on tape" aggravated him, and he asked me to list my entire "catalog."
Eventually we had an arrangement of me shipping/bringing him boxes of VHS tapes, which he'd work through to supplement his library and eventually convert to DVD for me. Of course, one time he shipped the latest batch of DVDs to my office "ATTN: Trim", which was awkward. I still have a box of fff-brand DVDs spanning a decade of EMAW games all with his customized DVD covers made on his home printer.
I think my first extended time hanging out with him was at the spring game where KSU had a "garage sale" in the indoor training facility. I got to observe his giddiness over the table of old $1 game DVDs, and him filling up a laundry bag that KSU was using as shopping bags with them. It made me happy.
Last time hanging out with him was in Manhattan for the OSU football game at Houlihan's. Despite it being a place where people who didn't care about football went for dinner to escape EMAW, fatty and tortuga turned it into the most raucous sports bar in town that night, even making me give a crap about OBz and his football team for one night that season. We all then went to aggieville, fatty still in his sweatpants, not giving a eff.
He'd PM me relentlessly about cancer and what he could do or say to make things better for his brother, to the point where I was hearing about cancer so much that I got it in my head that I had it again and had to go to the doctor for confirmation I was fine.
He made me laugh a lot over the years and he made me cry today.
