Everything Else

You may have noticed this weekend that there’s a new link on our menu bar up top there. Right next to The Store. Maybe you didn’t. Well, it’s time you did.

We know that this is the time of year where we get a lot of new visitors. The playoffs are coming, more people are interested in the Hawks, more are seeking out (better) coverage than they get from the mainstream. We’re happy to welcome you in.

But we also know that at times we speak a different language here. It’s a dialect that’s mutated and formed over the six years we’ve been doing this, combined with the loose relationship all of us have with sobriety. We’re sure it can be confusing. There’s a lot of codes and nicknames and whatever else. Hang around long enough and you’ll be well-versed in it enough to find the bathroom, but we know some people are frightened off.

It’s the same in the comments. Our loyal readers have developed their own customs and language in their playpen, and it can seem a bit boys club to the uninitiated.

Well, we’re here to help. Many of our readers got together and wrote the following “Guide To The Committed Indian.” In it, they go through every term, nickname, and weird other shit we like to delve into and define it for you. So if you didn’t know what “laaaarmered” means, or who in the hell we were talking about with “NACHOS!”, now you will.

You can always find it on the top menu bar, but it’s printed in its entirety after the jump.
