Learned about CRZ's recaps through those of spiritual successor KJP back in the day, found Slash down the line, and there you have it. Mostly lurk on rasslin forums these days(here, DVDVR, Online Onslaught), don't post much.
it's been so long ( circa 1997ish ), but I was in college and our radio station I was part of had an internet connected computer, I was checking out wrestling sites and somehow found one of CRZ's recaps which lead to me getting on whatever the original board was called at the time, I started out with a different name ( BWD or something like that, can't remember ), dropped off the net for a while then came back with this one.
I would say that "geek" and "nerd" have been sort of self-adopted by a lot of people to describe themselves in an obsessive sort of way. I know I have called myself a wrestling geek or a baseball geek on more than one occasion.
