rexthejet Appreciation Thread

Hello, friends foes and football fans!

Today we e-gather to both celebrate and mourn a bittersweet event. Beloved Gang Green Nation moderator and father of the TAN, user rexthejet, often shortened to rtj in casual conversation, will be leaving us soon for an extended period of time to go and visit Israel.

Most of you probably know him as the Seinfeld gif guy, the founder of the proud tradition of using images from the syndicated sitcom Seinfeld as reaction shots to moments around GGN, in and out of game.

rexthejet, or Fred as I've come to know him via email correspondence, proved himself as an asset from the moment I was aware of his existence. He instantly served as an arbitrator for me in a contentious administrative decision, and has done so professionally whenever I've called on him since.

Arguably, nobody on GGN has more local-meme inspiring power on GGN than rtj. With the exceptions of Crackback and sanchise6, perhaps the disgruntled and self-exiled CV, no member on GGN has such a cult following. Fred is very likely the most consistently and widely popular member of the blog. He's easy going but he knows how to admin a high activity blog, and his unique sense of humor has powered us through many hair-tearing moments both in games and in 'net debates.

Let me just say once how impossible it is to fill your shoes Fred, so we're just gonna have to keep your sport warm until you get back. Hurry back but enjoy your experience. We'll be thinking of you.

Use this thread to wish rtj well, and share your favorite rtj memories.
