just a general thread asking why you picked your username/ the story behind it.

ill begin.

driving up north ive been driving alongside a e9x bmw with a U of I plate "wingman". him and i would be on the road at the same time very often, usually following one another moving through the slower traffic, so i decided to get my new firefighter plates as wngman(because i couldnt get 7 letters)(see sig). hence the username.

why did you choose that username?

This isn't my original name on here, however it's an old one I brought back from the dead.

Surrey is the town in England where the McLaren F1 was made, hence the F1 at the end

JJR4884 was my initials and DOB

The letters are the consonants in my name.

I took my username from my golfing days (I used to golf four days a week). At the Men's Club I belonged to, we would have weekly matches. One weekend we had a team match; teams of two competing against each other. Everything was well except my putting. For some reason, I couldn't sink a three foot putt to save my life. Finally, on the 17th hole, after missing another short putt, my partner yells "why don't you just take a hacksaw to that putter!" By the time I got to the clubhouse, everyone was calling me "Hacksaw" and the name stuck.

A nickname I've been given since I was a Freshman in College. It is my DJ name, taken from the movie "Roll Bounce", and it stuck to my personality and charisma.
