I always thought the "OG" moniker came about around the time Todd Graham arrived, and OG was used to designate "Original Graham" as opposed to the new Graham (aka DG).

All this time I assumed it meant "Old Guy".

OG is typically used by the young folks to mean "Original Gangster". I think you may have shown your own age here...

I'd always assumed it meant Old General but I can dig the Original Graham.

If I was better with photoshop I would have some fun with the Original Gangster idea...

And, for the record, I think it's Original Gangsta (not Gangster). Man, this thread is getting more and more Rice by the minute.

Before I came to understand that OG meant Original Graham, I was guessing it was short for One and Only Graham. But as a dig at the engineers with their IFF statements, OOG got shortened to OG.05-stirthepot


*OK, I made that up. But I'll never admit it publicly. That's my story and I'm sticking to it... 04-cheers

Are you trying to anger Tanya even more???

Too funny, but Tanya couldn't be Walt, because Walt digs bunting and as everyone already knows, chicks dig the long ball.



I remember when that commercial came out -- I loved it! Maddux and Glavine: longtime teammates, all-around athletes, consummate pros, certain Hall-of-Famers, and by all accounts pretty decent guys.

From my experience, absolutely to both on the decent guys part. And the records speak for themselves on the rest of it.

See my comments on showing your age (in this case, showing mine). I knew it was "gangsta" at least enough to correct it after I posted, but it's hard to see me typing "gangsta" as anything but a poor attempt at a farce.

I thought The OG was a fire breathing creature with long fangs and a dragon tail, wreaking havoc and destruction in the underworld. I may have formed this opinion after watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy straight through one night.

It seems like a mythological creature to me. The OG. Beware the OG. So it's metaphorical is all I'm sayin.

You're close, but off by 180 degrees: the OG is an agent of light, not darkness, as he himself made clear at one of the most glorious moments in his and Rice's history:

Quote:The small camera that umpire Randy Bruns was wearing on the bill of his cap during Wednesday's Rice-Texas game came into good use when Rice coach Wayne Graham argued a call by Bruns in the fifth inning.

The image of an angered Graham yelling in Bruns' face made all the highlight shows and even brought Graham a phone call from one of his colleagues.

"He said, 'Did you see your eyes?' and I said, `Yeah,' " Graham said. "He said, 'You were the devil.' I told him that since I was right, I was an avenging angel, not the devil."
