    First off, I am not drunk. My drinking is under control. Wife kicked me out of house once and I learned my lesson.

    Second, I have to come clean. I am a huge fan of the show This is Us. Just watched the last episode. Made me think about family. Man oh man. It has been 16 years since I have left Turkey and I got no family in the US. Bunch of friends both Turkish and American and that’s it.

    Strangely though, this fucking TGG Forum came into my life in 2010. I first read it without becoming a member. Then I signed up and became a member. My first handle was Brooklyn which was a tribute to my kids being born while we lived in Brooklyn. People called me Brook instead of Brooklyn though. Then during the 2016 Presidential campaign I got inspired by Jeb Bush who chose Jeb! as his handle. I asked big boss Petrozza if he could change my handle to Brook! and I became Brook!

    Well long story short this place feels like a family to me. I come here to talk about Jets and life. I have my big brothers here and my little brothers. I met many of the forum members in real life. Met Barry the Baptist in Las Vegas and got hooker tips from him. Met No Fly Zone and Royal Tee at Jets games. Went to Jets training camp with my neighbor GQ Martin. Exchanged many emails with Jaywayne and helped him build his resume. Got many great advice here from Cman to Rollo to FJF to matt robinson. I got insulted many times by abyzmul but never stopped loving him. Dierking is my long lost love now.

    We got a good thing here folks. We got a good thing here.

    @Brook! Agreed. TGG is a great family. And the best thing about this family is you can log off whenever you want! :)

    I'm devastated that you didn't mention me in your tribute. You're dead to me now.

    Jeff. How can I forget you. You are one of my favorites as well. More to come. @donkey is the one person I am in debt. Brought me tea from UK. @GreenFan15J mailed the tea to me. I always ask myself what @jetophile posted today. She is one great queen. I learned being nice from @The Dark Knight for sure.

    More to come. :)

    You found inspiration in Jeb Bush AND you love me? You're not a Kurd, you're a fucking unicorn.

    What a shitty thread, what a shitty post, and you also obviously have shitty standards. Find better friends.

    Friendship is overrated, that’s just extra people who want to share your liquor. Fuck that.

    Saw the commercial for Julia Roberts new amazon prime show, and I’ll be damned, she’s a dead ringer for her brother Eric Roberts now.
