The man, the myth, the legend. Prolific commenter, BSotS ambassador to the SB Nation, passionate Suns fan...and (self-admitted) horrible speller. During the playoffs last year, I was hanging out on Planet Orange, for lack of a better alternative. But I found that I liked to watch the death throes of the other teams (I know, I'm sick). 2NASHTY kept showing up. On BEdge, then PTR, then SS&R, I saw this guy interacting with opposing fans, and doing it with class, style, good nature, and humility. I love sportsmanship, and I love class, and I followed him back to BSotS, which I didn't know existed.
If you've ever been to another team's game thread, you must know how hard it is to make a comment that doesn't start a flame war. 2N is the master at this - his humility and self-deprecation allows him to make points without pissing people off, even in the heat of battle. His humor allows him to defuse volatile situations. He gives credit where credit is due. His obvious passion for the game is infectious. And...well...his spelling...well, it's not very good.
Now, don't get me wrong. I love 2NASHTY. He is my favorite, and if you can call somebody that you have never met, don't know his real name, and who disses your birthplace constantly a friend, he is my BSotSBFF. He's my bud, my virtual drinking buddy, he's always got my back. But in a media that depends on the typed word to communicate, 2NASHTY can be somewhat of a liability. Like this time, in Norman OK, 1985, when my friend Greg went to the bar to pick up like our 23rd double scotch-on-the-rocks, and came back to inform me that he needed my help in a fight. Turns out he had picked a fight with Brian Bosworth and about 20 of his team-mates. It didn't help that Greg was about 5-9, roly-poly, with ENORMOUS glasses. That was expensive to get out of, I can tell you.
I had originally thought to write a post illustrating what spellcheck would do to 2NASHTY's comments, but as he himself has said, it takes him 3 tries to get it close enough for spellcheck to find the right word. So I'll let everyone do that for themselves - it will make for some fun comments.
And I know this looks like a typical epic haremoor (War and Peace) length thread, but it actually is a pretty quick and entertaining read.
So in the words of BEESOUGHTS own Yogi Berra, the best...of...2NASHTY.
Let's let 2N sum it up in his own (really, he just makes them up) words.
although i’m viscous on vowls…
really though; do you have any idea how frustrating it is to have my vocabulary and not be able to spell any of it? it took me 20 f’ing minutes to get close enough on superfluous to get the right suggestion…when finally got it and saw the

happy holidays everyone.
some times it actually have to try 2 or 3 times just to get close enough for spell check to guess what I’m trying to write
happy holidays everyone.
i speak can engrish…thank god you can translate
unincumbered by a key board you’d be suprized at how articulately beligerant I can be.

technically any thing divided by x as x approaches zero will approach infinity but this only applies to functions and not an integer …however , for diddly>>squat and assuming squat<<1, diddly divided by squat could indeed equal a shit ton
happy holidays everyone.

I got arrested for a failure to appear on a god-damned traffic ticket… there is so much funny shit to this story, but I’ll keep it to the semi relevant… I finally get processed and I’m in what they call the fish bowl (imagine your cabin at camp except with glass walls, you can’t leave and everyone is wearing orange). so at one point it turns INTO camp. everyone is telling their stories of how they got there, talkin shit and cracking jokes. then these two guys pipe up. turns out they both just got busted for dealing and it was their third strike…next stop, long prison sentence. they start telling stories and crackin up in a gallows humor kinda of way. then the tell this one story went like this
Dealer1: OHHHH dude, remember Jack!
Dealer2: OHH shit yeah Jack….I remember Jack mothah fuckah was allways try’n get Crack with no fuck’n mony.

I love me some 2NASHTY - He's my BroSOT. This post was done with much love, and the knowledge that he will understand, and take it in the spirit it was intended.
And if not...
That’s for you, 2Nashty.
