Favorite Quote: War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. — John Stuart Mill
Team Roles: Team Leader, Team Founder, Marksman / Sniper, Support Gunner / Heavy Weapons, Rifleman
Origin of Callsign: In college I had this strong dislike for Spam (the processed food substance). Face it… it’s not natural and should not be consumed. My obsession with disliking Spam began to peak when a friend bought me a can of Spam as a gag gift. The can had an offer plastered on it for a “Spam Racing #9 Nascar toy”. The offer had already expired. Now you know as well as I do, offers like that usually are good for 2 years. How long had this thing been on the shelf??? The natural progression led to my friends calling me The SpamMan or SpamMan for short. It stuck. To this day I still have that nasty can of processed dog food known as Spam on my desk.
About SpamMan: I’m a father of 4, and have one of my family member’s in the Marine Corps. I myself had looked into joining the Navy as a teenager to attempt to get into flightschool and later become a fighter pilot, but my vision was not up to par to do it. I love to follow politics and am a supporter of our armed forces and all that they do to protect our rights and freedom. These guys put themselves in harms way daily to protect our rights to freedom of religion, the right to bear arms, and the right to free speech amoung other things. They say imitation is the biggest form of flattery… and I consider airsoft to be an extention of that.
God has given me the finanaces and opportunity to play this game, and as such I give Him all the glory for it. He is my leader, my father, and my friend. He’s harsh when He needs to be, and gentle when it counts. He is perfect, and I love Him for it. With this in mind, you can see where our team vision comes from. We play hard, we play to win, but in the ends the glory is His and it’s all about having fun on the field.
