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.

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

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.

I didn't wear that blue hair until like 2007 I think... I'm talking like 05-06 time.

Which one in that picture is Cooter?

That one dude in the Peppers' jersey may want to lay off the chicken wings for a couple years.

Also, the huddle elders can confirm that Cooter was not Get Some Guy from WFNZ?

Sucks to lose a friend, my buddies dad died last week and it sucks. RIP.

Cooter is in the black shirt on the bottom with the camo hat on. And Zod said earlier in the thread that Cooter was not Get Some Guy. Cooter was much younger than that guy (I googled him and saw his age listed as 52). I'm betting that Cooter wasn't even 40 yet.....or if he was, he was early 40's.

Wow...that goes way back. Hard to believe that is how all this began. 8 or so people at a tailgate many years ago. (BTW..one with a very awesome "Panther's Suck" shirt).

Cooter was a big part of what this site and the tailgates have grown to today that is for sure. Damn, I'm gonna miss him.

I do not post much here anymore, but I had to post in this thread. This was very shocking news to see.

Cooter was the 1st Huddle member that I ever met. He reached out to me and wanted to meet up at a game in 04 I think. We shared a couple of beers and a few laughs. I ran in to him a few times out and about and we would always talk about the Panthers.

I am truly at a loss for words at this news. RIP Cooter. I'll raise a cold one up for you at the next Panthers game.
