RIP Cooter...

I must be the one person he didn't like. Tried talking to him a few times at tailgates but we never clicked. I know from all the good that's said about Cooter that he was a good man though.

My heart goes out to his family and all of you here that were close to him.

I am heart broken. I still don't know what to say, feel, or think. I just spoke to him about 2 months ago. It's just so unbelievable.

Rest in Peace Steve. Wub you.

It was the banter back and forth between you two in the lounge that lured me into that crazy place. I went from a couple of posts a week in the football forum to spending a good portion of my days and evenings on the Huddle lounge. Can't believe that was 6-7 years ago.

Met him at my first Huddle tailgate. Told him I was in the Coast Guard and he told me he was a Coast Guard veteran and we talked about that quite a bit. Very sorry to hear that he passed. He seemed like a real good guy.

Has anyone found out what happened? I haven't seen any answer to the question. I haven't seen him in a few years, but he was at every tailgate I was able to attend, and was great fun to hang out with.

I met him once at a tailgate. I never really got to know him, but RIP.

Just because I was drunk did not mean I did not know the difference.....you were the one with the Blue Hair. Cooter was too cool for Blue Hair. :P

Vivid memories...

1. Signed up as a (paid) huddle member just before the 2004 draft. I was a big nascar fan back then. The first thread I opened in that forum, I was greeted with this avatar (cooter started that thread).

2. Possibly the hardest I've laughed at a huddle post. 3 simple words in an oh-so-serious subforum. "I found it!" in Zod's old Lost forum. Pretty good insight into his e-personna.

Not really a tailgater, I usually park cheap at the western end of Moorhead. Met him once in the east end zone at Fan Fest '04, along with many other huddle 'legends' (clayJ, ladyvamp, squirrel, ladypanther, gregP701?, Alverez? and a 'highlighted' Johnny Rockets). This was just before clayJ's homophobic meltdown/exit.

Good guy from what little I knew of him, he will be missed.

RIP Cooter

Recognized a lot of names in this thread, good to see most all of them, except under these circumstances

Man, that list brings back some memories as well. Some memorable posters.

I think Cooter was the first person that I ever met directly from the Huddle. I remember him coming over to my house and spending the Fourth of July just after we first met. He was at my house just a couple weeks ago and spoke by phone twice last week. I considered him to be a good friend and have really been heart broken the last couple days. Every time I start feeling sad, I think about something crazy he did and it brings a smile to my face. Here are a couple examples...

Upon returning from a hunting trip with Cooter, I was showing my wife all the pictures from the week. About half way through the slide show a picture popped up on the screen that I did not know was there. It seems that Cooter had stolen my camera and captured a wonderful full screen shot of his naked hairy ass. I think that was the last time my wife let me go hunting with Cooter. :D

And then there was the time in Maine that we left Cooter behind at the rental cabin while we went into town for some groceries. As we pulled into the drive of the cabins, Cooter was standing out in front wearing nothing (and I mean nothing) but his rifle over his shoulder. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard.

He was a good guy and the life of the party. I'll miss him until I get to see him again.
