The Open Mat!!!!!

Am I the only slow and stupid one on this board ( don't answer that )?????   I honestly thought Tom was a guy that posted wrestling results.  Good grief, I've been out awhile.  :(

In the beginning I thought TOM was some mascot for the site that I had never seen. Six months later I figured it out

Julio, i think we are both in the clear because, yesterday, I got a message from a poster that thought TOM was a furry rodent.  At least we were both closer to the actual meaning.

Oh for sure.  That is what I thought too.  I was thinking it looked something like him:
