    I am so sorry guys but please remove me if possible. I just lost my baby and am in no mood for anything. I am sincerely sorry but I hope you understand that this means more than anything.

    My box will be heading to the west players. A bit north too.

    So sorry for your lost man, that's some heavy real-life stuff. As someone who has been through this before, there real isn't anything that can be said to make it better, and only time will help with the loss.

    Terribly sorry for your loss, my friend. My thoughts are with you and your family. Beer doesn't hold a candle to family, don't even give being removed a second thought - we all understand.

    I understand that we all are on Y2k's side right now. Lets not overwhelm him. Please, channel any thoughts and/or offers through Lehigh or I. Only to streamline things. @y2kawakami is still part of this BIF. His sender has reached out to me already, and will be fulfilling his end. I will fulfill y2k's obligation. He is one of us, he gets beer.

    Well, I mean if anyone wants to publicly post best wishes, I'm not anti that. Go right ahead. I think it's prolly just better to limit the the influx from an inconsequential thing like a beer website right now. Y'all be you.

    Well.

    This, without question, is the wonkiest way for a bunch of folks to give each other beer that I've ever seen.

    Seriously.

    I strongly recommend that everybody involved in this this thing take a step back; have a few deep breaths: open a beer (or, some bourbon, some weed, whatever): grab ahold of someone ya care about; give 'em an extra tight, extra long squeeze; and appreciate that we have the extra time, money, and interest to get involved in this silliness.

    Best thoughts to those having issues right now. Thank the rest of you for being you.

    My target .......................................................

    ..... is a person.

    ..... likes beer.

    ..... has rated/reviewed fewer beers than I have.

    ..... has more "official" beer trades than I have (but I doubt they've traded more beer than I have).

    ..... has had a number of beers that I've had.

    ..... lives in the state where my Mom and Dad were married a LOOOOOOOOONG time ago.

    As a newbie on BA I've honestly been hoping to tick new beers and see my number of ticks grow but after looking through my targets ticks to see what styles are preferred and what NEW beers I can send I can honestly say, "Damn, I hope someone has to sort through umpteen thousand beers to see if there is anything they deem worthy to send me one day". With that said my target has rated/reviewed more beers than I have but I definitely have some insight and a game plan to bomb the hell out of their porch!

    My targets state has a population between 3-17 times greater than my state. (only want to eliminate a few of you big state weirdo's)

    Haul hint #2:
    Je vais t’envoyer un capiteux topper

    (if you really speak French and that doesn't make sense, sorry. Google translator!)

    Hint#3 about my target's state:

    Both of my in-laws were born and raised there.
    It is not as wide as my state.
    It has fewer border states than my state.

    Via all the hints that have been given out, I have officially eliminated 10 names off my "potential sender" list. Roughly 88.26% of all the people who have given hints so far have ruled me out.

    In honor of crossing out 10 names, here is my next hint ... but it's a doozy and you may have to work at it if you want to figure out whether this rules you out or not.

    Hint #2 - Winnipeg (where I'm from) has a professional football team in the Canadian Football League, as I've mentioned before in the signup thread. One member of our coaching staff has previously coached football in the state my target lives in.

    Great question. They now live in South Florida, which is south of their home state.
