I am a fan of the Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Blackhawks & Florida State Seminoles. Paz had an ah-ha moment on at least 2 of these once during a tourney, guessing not all 3
One west coast team, one central and one in the east, that's a odd combo. :o

First name is Lauren, and I really like dragons.

I drew the photo that is my icon a few years ago, and I decided to derive my username from the photo.

Me, as a purple dragon!

Arcade Action - the Atari 5200 arcade conversion titles that came to the system like Centipede, Pacman, Joust, Pole Position etc would have the Arcade Action logo as part of their box design and/or used in brochure advertisements. This was my first home console, and years later, I had forgotten that Arcade Action was part of the 5200 history when I subconsciously chose the username, but when I rediscovered that fact - it was a full circle moment indeed...
