Where did your BGN username come from?

Doug Benc

We've got a pretty big, diverse community here on BGN and a lot of very active members whose names we probably now know by heart.

But what did they come from? What do they mean? This we do not know.

So I figured it would be a fun community exercise to have everyone let us know where your username comes from. Is it an homage to a player, some other sport etc?

For me, it's basically just my name. When I started the site about 7 years ago now, I actually worked in radio and I would go by Jason B on air. B is just short for Brewer. So I just used that same name on the site and kept it ever since.

So pretty boring... I'm sure you've all got much better stories.
