Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

mine came from 2 things....first off i cant stand the raiders so that is not it....... raiders came from my middle schools nickname,(did not pick my highschools due to it being blue devils,,,and did not want everybody thinking i was a blue devil fan :-t ).... umpire came from well me being a umpire of baseball games whether it being high school, middle school or AAU.... so i just put the 2 names together when i signed on for my first yahoo id many years ago, and use it in every place i go on the internet now.......

Dr. Duran Duran was Jane Fonda's nemesis in Barbarella. Being a big Duran Duran fan, I thought it was appropriate.

The stomper part is the name I used on a wrestling site many years ago - it's after Archie "The Stomper" Gouldie, a bad guy from the 60's and early 70's. But it seems that everywhere I try to use it, it's already taken so I added my first name, Rob, to it.
