This wrapped around a cubs baseball, while hard would be really awsome. But this will work great. I appreciate this

All,

the Colts are sending flowers to Gavin's Visitation from all of us here on the forums. We wanted his family to know how much he will be missed.

That's awesome man. If it's not too much, I wanna make that my prof pic, at least for the next little while. Show my respect and support for a truly good guy.

Gavin was one of the first people I noticed when I first came to this board, even during my lurking days.  Learned a lot from him.  RIP.

I remember when I first started to post here. He literally was the first person who made me feel comfortable. It's heartbreaking to hear of his passing. I'm praying for his family man. It's going to be tough....

Seemed like a long time ago... i posted here in two phases, when the board changed over i took a new identity cause all my other stuff was lost but it seems like i remember him from way, way back but not sure.

Also praying for Gavs........ very sad, just is.

My God...34 years old. This is so heartbreaking. I always thought he had one of the most brilliant football minds here. I would always look forward to reading his posts, especially during draft time. Prayers to his family and his friends. May he rest in peace.

He also new a lot about Baseball and Basketball. He was often on the Basketball Thread. I could never convince him that Kareem was better than Hakeem for example. He was full of knowledge.

I'm sorry to hear about this.  Gavin was a good poster he and I had several conversations on the forum and through the private messaging.  We didn't always agree but he was passionate about the Colts and passionate about his opinions.  Definitely one of the members that, if I ever ran into in person I would bought a beer and I'm sure enjoyed talking with him for a while.

 

My prayers go to his family and friends.

I wanted to first say thank you to everyone that has posted in this thread.  I have not been here as much as in the past, but I came on here and "Remembering" Gavin was the first thing I saw.

 

I remember when I first came to the new site, and I really had a difficult time with some of the old timers on here.  It did, as others have noted, seem like Gavin was on here all of the time.  I guess that means I was too. :)  

 

With us it was me old school and Gavin new school.  As we know these two heads tend to 'come together' once in awhile.  We went back and forth so much, I think 8,000 of my posts were arguing/debating with Gavin. :)  Yesterday's stars for example.  I got a warning or two in my early tenure on this site.  Thanks Gavin!!! :sarcasm:

 

This kid wanted to learn everything, and was willing to research anything he needed to provide insight as well as debate information.  Even though we debated a ton, he asked me to go over the Offensive line schemes.  He wanted to learn!!

 

As time rolled on, I have to admit the old school guy was happy to see Likes going both ways.  Friendly comments instead of snide remarks.

 

The Colts, Cubs and Pacers have lost a great friend.  Peace is now.  Please rest.  We will miss you.:coltslogo:!!!

Excellent Post!

After reading several of Gavin's Threads/Posts I have realized that we were a lot alike and had the same fears/problems

 

Such a sad story RIP Gavin

I loved hearing his passion for the Colts, Cubs, and Pacers!  Not everyone always agreed.  But we were all on the same team; so to speak.  We will miss him......

Never had the pleasure of having a conversation with Gavin, but he felt like a brother. He touched everyone's lives on this forum in one way or another, be it with his amazing wit and humor or his beautiful grasp on the knowledge of the league. He was an amazing guy, and you can find his mark on nearly every post on here. He treated everyone as family, even when in disagreement with someone. His insane love for this forum and the Colts organization will forever be remembered by all who are here, and I will personally remember this day every year on our forum for as long as I am here. You will be missed, pal. I'm glad that you can run around in heaven now, meeting former Colt greats while standing on your own two feet for the first time in a long time! RIP Brother

    • I understand that but just answer this, who's better MJ or LeBron? I honestly could not stand Michael Jordan which some just ignore when I Post. I hated him more than I do LeBron but I don't get  caught up in the moment either and just say someone's the best ever when they don't have the resume to back it up.  I also think Magic was better than LeBron, lets say LeBron wins it all and wins Finals MVP this season: -Magic 5-4 in Championships -LeBron has him 4-3 in League MVP's -LeBron would have him 4-3 in Finals MVP's -Magic 5-4 in Finals, LeBron 4-4 in Finals -LeBron much more Points in his career -Magic much more Assists in his career -Neither have won Defensive Player of the Year.   To me this is much more of a debate and almost dead even, both are pretty even Rebounders as well. Magic still would be the greater winner though and nobody is going to tell me the Boston teams that Magic beat aren't as great as the Warrior teams are now - that is close but Boston was loaded back then as well.  
    • I'm really not trying to get into this discussion because I understand both sides but the people who try to make it look like it is not a discussion really get to me.   People talk about the rings but I don't think one of LeBron's teams were as good as MJs and the Warriors this year and last year were better than any team Jordan played.   And also about the playoff point stat. LeBron did play 33 more games but still has fewer attempts than MJ did. Just shows you how much Jordan shot the basketball. LeBron will be top ten in assists when he retires.
    • Why is that? Just asking. You do know the Jazz were favored by Vegas going into the 1998 Finals and Jazz had HCA but the Bulls still beat them. Also lets say LeBron wins this year. That would give him 4 Championships. If LeBron wins and wins Finals MVP it would be: Jordan 6-4 in Championships Jordan 5-4 in League MVP's/this wont change Jordan 6 Finals MVP's, LeBron would have 4 Jordan 6-0 in Finals, LeBron would be 4-4 Jordan has 10 Scoring Titles, LeBron has 1 Jordan has won Defensive Player of the Year once, LeBron has never won that. Jordan still has more Career Points and hasn't even played as long as LeBron has. -Not trying to start anything but you don't have a leg to stand on saying that. Jordan beats him in nearly everything imaginable that is most important. LeBron now has more Playoff Points but he has played 33 more games to do so. I cant debate with anyone because I list facts that back up my stuff while others just get on here and say LeBron is the best just because.
    • The ball should be placed where the body part that rules a player down hits. Not where the ball was when that happened. If you are going to spot the ball on a sideline grab where the recievers toes are though the ball is out if bounds, then the same spot rule should apply anywhere else on the field
    • The other thing that I like about cats is their fascination with Christmas trees & ornaments that hangs from it's real or fake branches. Cats tend to like batting ornaments playfully around. You know low hanging stuff or items that catch sunlight just right.    Many years ago, Gypsy my calico cat long since gone now started batting a boot yarn ornament with her paw & she got her claw stuck. As a matter of fact, the tree started to topple in her direction, I stopped it just in time from landing on her. I said "Gypsy are you okay?" She looked at me as if to say. "Thanks for the save SW1. My life almost flashed between my eyes & it wasn't pretty at all."    A few Christmas's later, Gypsy started playfully batting around the same ornament & I replied "Now be careful Gypsy. You remember what happened last time right?" She meowed back at me as if to say "Darn it, you're no fun at all. Off to my favorite spot to snooze for a few hours then."    Yeah, we had an understanding. We gave each other space & we know when to check in & say hey what's up? Cats are cool that way. They know when to leave you alone & when to make sure your okay.
