A lot of guys have said that and I can appreciate their feelings, however, when I won on Thursday, I had a really great feeling. So many great RJers e-mailed me on Thursday, and even earlier in the week when I was runner up three days in a row. I had a 60 something member tell me in his e-mail that I was an inspiration to him and to all others in my age group (I am 56).
I had others see my comments in the forum posts and they e-mailed me on why they liked what I had to say. Support came from some of the true leaders and most respected guys on this site.
I have to say this, drafts24, to be MOTD you have to earn it by being supportive of others, have a little self-depreciating humor at times, and by showing your face at the right moment, saying the right things and being true to the guys here.
Another thing. I e-mailed the RJer who won on Friday and encouraged him to use this one-day honor to reach out to the guy who finished second that day (in this case Geoedward) to not only nominate him for the next day's voting, but get to know him and learn from others. I sure hope he did.
