"mikeindabronx" and his 20,000th post
« on: July 14, 2017, 10:16:11 PM »
 Generally, it is common knowledge to most of us here that "mikeindabronx", aka Mike D., is known as "Our Most Valuable Player" because of his many post and comments he regularity post for us.

 It looks like Our Most Valuable Player, "mikeindabronx", is headed for his 20,000th post. A record far exceeding any regular contributing members.

 As of about 2200 hours on Friday night, July 14th '17, he has 19,312 total number of post. The question is; "When will he reach his 20,000th post" ?

 I thought why not make a little game out of it. And the guy that is able to guess the closest date and time, without going over is the winner. That winner will be offered a $50.00 gift donation to the charity of his choice. 

 Every member can play by just posting the closest date and time (without going over) when "mikeindabronx" will reach that 20,000 mark.

 One vote per member and the contest ends one week from tonight, Friday, July 21, 2017 at 23:59 hours. Please use military time when posting your guess.

 The winning prize is a $50.00 donation to the charity of your choice. (paid for by NFD2004, by eliminating a couple of Micky Ds Big Mac Combo Meals @ $8.00 each).

 The game is about to begin. Below are the contestants, and the date and time that these players feel "mikeindabronx" (Our Most Valuable Player) will reach his 20,000th post on this site.

 Good Luck Gentlemen;
 1) "firephish" - Aug 21 @ 14:21 hrs
 2) "NFD2004" - Sept 1 @ 20:00 hrs
 3) "tperez102" - Sept 11 @ 08:42 hrs ......(A date and time that many of us will NEVER FORGET)
 4) "Maxima2012" - Sept 12 @ 00:01 hrs

 6) "manhattan" - Nov 5 @ 21:28 hrs
 7) "CFDMarshall" - Nov 11 @ 18:45 hrs ......(The day we Honor Our U.S. Military Veterans)

 *** Note - I never told "mikeindabronx" this, but when I used to see him in those tough South Bronx and Harlem streets back in those 1970s and 80s days, taking those GREAT pictures for his web site ( www.fdnysbravest.com ), I was always keeping a good eye on him making sure that NOBODY messes with him. He just never knew that.

 SO Mike,......with that in mind, maybe you can reach that 20,000th post between Aug 21st @ 14:21 hrs and Sept 1st @ 20:00 hrs.

 Who will be the winner to have that prize money donated to the charity of their choice ?

 (Mike I'm counting on you if you know what I mean - got to pick up the pace a little bit to help me out. Don't forget about all those Big Macs I offered to buy you at our favorite Bronx Micky Ds)

 Gentlemen as you can see, we have only one player who is still in the running for this contest. That player/member is "CFDMarshall", known simply as "The Rev" to many of us.

 Our Most Valuable Player, "mikeindabronx" is at his 19,964 post as of Thursday, November 9th at 1200 hours.

 Can "The Rev" still pull it off ? Can "The Rev" become the winner without Mike going over that 20,000th post by Saturday, November 11th at midnight ? We will soon find out.

 If "The Rev" is successful and "mikeindabronxx" does NOT go over that 20,000th post, "Reverend CFDMarshall" will be notified that he is the winner of the - "mikeindabronx and his 20,000th post contest". At that point Rev gets to pick where a $50.00 donation will go to the charity of his choice.

After a quick check, it appears that "mikeindabronx", Our Most Valuable Player, posted his 20,000th post at 20:53 hours.
Prior to that his 19,999 post was at 19:40 hours.

 This site member "CFDMarshall", aka Elwood E., had predicted that "mikeindabronx" would post his 20,000th post on November 11, 2017. Without going over at 18:45 hours. As I see it tonight (11/11/2017 @ about 10:30 pm) and we have a WINNER. An AMAZING number and time predicted.

 This contest began back on July 14 and at that time "mikeindabronx" had 19,312 post back then. Almost four months ago. Tonight CFDMarshall, aka Elwood E is officially the winner. But nobody really knew how close he would be.

 What a Great job.
 Rev, as he is known to some of us is a Great guy. He usually comes up from Tennessee to visit once or twice a year. He was just up here in October. Prior to that last April where he visited Boston and Providence along with a couple of other site members.

 Elwood will get to pick which charity he would like that $50.00 donation to be given too.

 Congratulations to Elwood E., aka Rev "CFDMarshall".

 We'll pass it on which charity organization he would like to give that too.

 Also, thank you to "mikeindabronx", Our Most Valuable Player. Without him, none of this would be possible. Thanks to the guys who joined in to. We didn't win but it was fun. And Elwood sure shined on this one.

Congratulations and thank you Mike for all you do for this site and all of us.  Thanks for you support and contributions to the fire service and firefighters.

Thanks also to Willy D, our biggest cheerleader, senior man and most big-hearted friend.  And the Reverend, for his always brilliant prediction.
