"CrimeZone",for me,originated when i first attempted to register at Full Tilt Poker as "Crimson",back in late 2006 or early 2007.The handle Crimson was unavailable,so i adulterated it slightly.I also liked the whole 'double-entendre' it represented.Y'kno,yer gonna feel like ya got robbed when you sit at my table-LMAO!
The more perceptive will notice the misspelling of my handle on these two trophy's,proving nobody remembers the guy who came in 2nd
Stompin Tom Connors & Timmy Ho's Coffee...Im Canadian eh!
Its origins go back to the late 70's,to one of the crew i ran with.He had long,...long red hair,so naturally he ended up with the handle,Crimson(We all had 1-word handles-Hugh's was 'Huge'-He was BIG:Suttie's was 'Slutty'-blonde-haired chick-magnet:I refuse to share mine) but Crimson was a couple years older than us,& ran an 'after-hours' place,& you could buy ANYTHING there,so now & then he got called "Crimezone".So the bottom line is,i s'pose,is my poker handle is plagiarized :D
Its also an homage to the progressive rock band,King Crimson
Thanx for reading my little story.Its pro'bly all bullshit :)
