    So I was wondering what made people select their BF screen name? I'm hoping to read some interesting stories. Unfortunately mine is not all that interesting. "Ruth" is my name and I thought it was short enough to use as a screen name. And the "1" stands for "the one and only." :)

    So anyone else care to share?

    my nick in one of my former jobs was the "radman". there was a badminton tournament held for local companies - sort of like a corporate challenge, and one of my teammates made the connection with me and badminton so they renamed me "badrad". it stuck...

    Well, my nick pretty much speak for itself. Im left handed and Lin-Dan is left handed :D thats why i like him so much. And when I watch his games i can study the footworks, grips, and swings ( which i cant do with right handed players) if the video is clear enough. I 've been trying to get all his games but so far only have 2 :crying:. Wish more people would post them.
