Pleased To Meet Me: Introductions!

Putting this back up top for a bit.

Hi everyone.  Once a year, right before the season begins we do an introduction post for members of the community to introduce themselves so we can all get to know the folks we'll be game thread-ing and blogging with.  It's become quite a popular post.  As with past years, we'll leave this open and post it to the main page so newcomers can get a crash course in B^3.  Please introduce yourself in the comments, and feel free to add categories if you are so inclined.  Without further pleasantries:
