We have a winner!
I want some others to "confirmed" this, because I'm almost 100% positive it was Sherrod Harris when he was either a recruit or was a true freshman. I was very active in that thread along with others making fun of the guy screaming racism.
It started with Shipley at Taco C. I know, because I started the thread years ago.
See but that doesn't make sense to me as to why the thread garnered so much attention turning it into a continual joke. I thought it was back in 2005 after Sherrod Harris had committed to us over Stanford or some other team, and a poster said he saw Sherrod in a Chinese restaurant "of all places."
The reason it blew up and became so legendary is because some crazy poster said that it was racist to say "of all places" in connection with seeing someone in a Chinese restaurant. That would have been 4 years ago, which sounds about right, but hey I could be wrong.
I remember that thread. He said he saw Sherrod there "of all places" because it was already an OB mainstay. The poster who cried "racism" wasn't aware of the joke.
