This is a sad, sad day indeed.
The virtual little nook that was the Gaia Online Sports Bar & Grill is apparently no more. Started on Sunday, January 18, 2004, by banditb17, the thread was part sports chat, part RP (at least for me) -- a place frequented over the years by several Gaians who became familiar digitized faces to this Gaian Geezer. And finally, on page 5438, it is gone. I tried to post a reply on there, only to be informed coldly, unfeelingly that the thread was now 'old and decrepit' and that I had to 'please find a newer thread about this topic or create your own to continue discussing'.... Does this mean I could create a 'Let's discuss the Gaia Online Sports Bar & Grill' thread?
Sadly, given my lack of regular appearances on this website anymore, such a thread would surely fade into obscurity very quickly. Ah, well. Time, it seems, has marched on for the good ol' Bar thread. No more turning on the lights, dusting off the bar, and pouring myself a virtual Sammy whilst noting this or that about recent or semi-recent sporting events. No more checking back in several months later to see who had also wandered by, checking on that old haunt. We now just can say 'Sayonara!' *waves one final time as he closes the bar's door and moseys off.
