As you probably read earlier, Brad is going to go back through his emotional archives, pull out the Xavier games that made an impression on him before we started writing on here, and recap them. I think this is an awesome idea, and I'd let him run with it even if I didn't. I've enjoyed Brad's work as the second-best writer on the site since we got it off the ground, and I'm excited to see the results of whatever's going on in that bald head of his on this one. There's a small problem though...

Brad's in his early 30s. Assuming his experience is at least a little bit like mine, he probably wasn't making really high level memories early on, meaning everything before about the mid 90s is going to be really tough for him to attach recollection to. Power Forward U is something he heard about. Byron and Joe have only ever been legendary radio guys for him, never legendary players. At this point, he has attended, watched, or listened to far more games contested at Cintas than at any other venue X called home.

This is where you come in. If the response to his post asking when each of us stopped the flirtations and started going steady with the Muskies is any indication, we've got a community on here with chronological roots that run deeper than those of our staff. There are stories of classic Xavier games out there that we're only going to hear if you pitch in.

If you watched/listened to/attended a game that you think belongs in the conversation, let us hear about it in the comments section. If you have the tendency to wax verbose or just want to have a little more formatting flexibility, use our FanPost system to share your story.

A closing paragraph probably belongs here, but I didn't pay enough attention in journalism class to bring them all home strong. Sorry, Ms. Worthington.
