February 2000

Twas the night before open.......and im sitting here all stoned.......
All instructions have been given.....all corpies.i have...phone'd
We got one more day to....... wiggle ............and squirm.....
Cuz at open i promise We Will See what you Learned....

The egroups were Quiet......a few posts here and there.......
Some Questions were answered......A few views were shared
Im just settling down now myself,,,,my mind all a Rattle........
For the morrow shall bring forth one Hell of a Battle.......

Amazing I tell you,,,,The logic at hand
The teams that have entered.....where different people stand......
The Black Knight's aren't playing..thier members spread out,,,,
Ego's to Match ..yet who has the Clout???

The hands down Favorite???? Well who do you think????
It sure hell isnt........ us guys at Boo! inc.
To tell the future I look to the past....Peace won it last year now aint
that a Gas!
Fore With EleQ and Guardian and dont forget Rip....,Ret...,...and Rex
They are the odds on favorite but look .....lets see who is next......

Badhouse I tell you they follow up Here.This team is Lethal and one you
should fear
They tied the Last BOTE and Work well as a Team..
If they ever invade you,,,,you Will see what i mean...
So Whose next you ask??? Who can Follow that Act.....
Why none other then Rolodex With CEO hELLCAT........

That team looks sweet With Hekate and DH to follow in stride
If i see any of them comming I'm Looking to HIDE.....
So who follows up after ???????? its anyone's guess.....
Most teams have one or Two....... of the Best of the Best.....

But remember my friends the fun of the game.....
All in All it Will Never Ever Be the Same....
For these are the Days Where Legends Begin
And These are the Games We ALL want to WIN.

"But please Dont Worry"............. I Said with a Wink......
I wont forget to mention,,,This Poem..Is Brought to you by....Boo! inc.

Thanks Kav, I didn't want to flood the thread with all of them from me. That should be all of his publicly posted poems. Enjoy and remember, when I talked to SG about fixing up the Boo! Inc. website the one thing he wanted remembered and saved were his poems. He didn't care about anything as much as he did his poems.

BOTE 2000
by Space Ghost
The biggest Battle of All is about to commece.
Will you playing?....or sitting on the fence?????
B.O.T.E. 2000 it is history in the making.
It will show us all who can PLAY and whose Faking!


In The very first BOTE ......back in 1998
Team Fament Won! Showed the world they were GREAT!
They did it the right way and gypsy was the MOD!!
Where was I at??? probably in a POD!!!!

It Had a Death limit < i got there first>
It wasn't my best game < but it wasn't my worst >
Zoobar and Maverick This was thier Idea!!!!!!
Who would of thought it would happen every Year!!!!!

In 1999,....... BOTE was a disaster
we had 2 teams on top neither the Master.
Budweiser as mod the game was a shamble
A tourny this size he just couldnt Handle.
His bbs .........it died as a result.
In my opionon it was his own fault.

At the time it appeared the Death of this game.
No More BOTE..No Glory!!!!!! No Fame!!!!!!
But I refused to let it go!!! I could not stop there!!!
So I whined and whined and Finally caught Zoobars Ear!!

I asked and I begged for a chance just to play!!!
With the best of the best of the best of this Game!
But where could we hold it better yet who can MOD????
We should hold it at Fament and let it be Op'd by TW GODS!!!


Hosem and Monday the choice's were clear.
Players of Honor and enemies once feared
now to get Zoobar and Mac on the same page
And make Bote 2000 all of the Rage!!!!!

The stage is set!!!!......... Let the Battle Begin!!
Who will be LOSERS?? Better yet who will WIN!!??
I will give it my best shot and I know what you think!!!
But THIS time I'm bringing the Gang from Boo! inc.

And a new member while im here i should mention
As a RED .........this guy got my attention!!!
Who should i choose it wasnt that hard!!!!
My buddy from Intergate,,,Known as WildCard!!

So If you think ur the best and a twgs got your back
Bring your bad self over But dont be to Slack
Cause im goona be using all my tricks even the ones that stink!!
Just so i can Claim the BOTE for Eclipse...< and Boo! inc. >

posted by request and for your enjoyment.

Poem by Space Ghost, CEO of Boo Inc!
Battle Of The Elite 2000

twas a minute before exturn by Space GhostBOTE 2000
By Nightwing
A bloody persecution is on hand
The blood of many will soak the land
Bote 2000's time is near
It's a time to play and a time to fear

Throughout the galaxy the traders zoom
Somewhere near awaits their doom
Both good and evil the traders will play
In Bote 2000 they'll all have their day

They trade at ports and make their money
And when they die it's never funny
In Bote 2000 they come to trade
Just one more port and they'll have it made

twas a minute before exturn
by Space Ghost
Twas a minute before Exturn...
and none had a clue.
Of the Carnage and killings
Home Sector was about to do.

Surrounding fed space....
Thier plans were layed well...
In hopes of High Profits...
From ships they would sell..

Exturn Ran Quickly
on the mighty FAMENT
But to thier meek pods!!!!
most Traders were sent.

Talon Karrde's Merchant Freighter!!
Guardian got that one first!!!
hang on to ur britches people...
I't gets worse and worse

Bad Girl she struck! No one could Take her.
She swooped down and Podded!!!!!
The mighty Peacemaker!
she wasnt done yet! her fingers yet limber....
She podded Nobody,And then she got Timber!!!!

Not to be out done ...That one named EleQ
Podding and killing...... is what he did Seek
StoneWall and Moldar were the first that he killed!!!
Then psychotherapy,Abraxus and lastly MaD-SkiLLz!!

Not to miss out!!!!! Maverick had no one to Fear
He killed off Auntie B and then podded Shakespeare.
Lest i forget Gaurdian.... you know he podded Pixie too.
All totaled up???? 15 kills for this Home Sector Crew!!!!!!

Poems.... and balleds..... and songs they will sing
About the death and disaster Home Sector did bring
The Carnage and Destruction that i have described..
But please Try and remember ,,,,It's ONLY day Five.

Kav just found this one on the wayback machine. Seems odd to be this close to B.O.T.E. and not have a lot of drama in the forums. Miss ya SG! (But not the drama.) ;)

Ok i Lied.....

Work has been taking up way to much of my time...
No time for TW no time to write Rhymes......
Running a Car Lot..... i tell you it's not easy
Making some money.. but keeping me busy.

i posted a message in ygroup's that Stated...
That i wasn't playing!!! My wife was Elated!!!
The Decision once made my doubt did then Start.
Could i walk away from BOTE and not be a part???
I just couldnt do it...I tell you i tried....
Yep you can say it...Ok i Lied.....

The Game it was started by a Knight and a Rogue....
Held at Azi.com and well.... the rest of it's well known.....
I was the first one killed out.....thats not surprising....
My Record started there....and it seems still is rising.......

Fament took Glory!!!... History does show..
The LAG it was Terrible..And the Legends did Grow.
Now is the time for to play BOTE number Four....
Time to come out and battle once more.......

I Lied when i said that i wouldnt play...
I lied i tell you...what can i say?
Miss the Big Game?? I surely think Not!!
I'm playing i tell you...I will NOT miss BOTE!!!!!

My Wife isnt happy ..What can i say???
She never believed that i wouldnt play.
I've proven to her the i am very addicited...
She Knew i would play and even predicted.....

When i read her that letter in ygroups i posted
She stated " Ya Right!" (and now she is boasting)
"I knew you would play!! "( Ya .. she was right)
Yep i'm coming to play so expect a fight!!!

Least i forget...Please Allow me to mention
The Second Annual TW Convention!!!!!!
In Oct it will be a Special Affaire.....
It is even rumored EleQtriZiti Will be there!!!!

So I'll Bring my team to this Years BOTE
Ya im coming ..So lets see what you got...
You can call it Team Eclipse With a nod and a WINK
But we are more commonly known as the team of Boo! inc.

Kav has unearthed SG's Boo Inc. web page on the WayBack Machine.

I'm going to try to reconstruct it as best I can. Hopefully enough is intact to go into the TW Museum.

Ballad Of A Retread.

What happened to Tradewars? Where did everyone go?
I should ask around. I'm sure someone will know.
With hundreds of servers, it used to be grand.
and thousands of players, standing by on demand.

So tell me what happened, can it really be so?
EIS is a ghost town, where few players will show.
What happened to Stonewall, and to River Rat?
Where's Xide and Sing, and players like that?

I heard about Space Ghost, and that's really sad.
I really do miss him, and the corp that he had.
Boo Inc. was a legend, and always will be.
Not many compare, there's not many like he.

As everyone knows, I've been gone a long time.
And I feel the need, to share my small ryhme.
I really do miss it, those wonderful days,
Tradewars in it's GLORY, went out with a blaze.

So I guess I'll be going, but I'll stop back by.
I'll read the next forum, if this one should die.
I'll read all the smack, and keep an eye on big games.
But I can tell you right now, it's just not the same.

And if anyone should wonder, who I was in the past.
I'm just an old player, with an itch I can't scratch.
They call me a retread, you won't remember my name.
But you best not forget, I helped build this game.

Dedicated to the memory of Space Ghost...

by SpaceGhost (Dec 15, 2000)

Eleq gets an ideaand Aitvo Heralds The Way.
But must you Changethe name of the place that i play???

If u change fromHOME SECTOR i'm goona be pissed!!!
I've won a few game's ....And lost more then a few....
Please keep it HOMESSECTOR I dont WANT anything NEW!!

The reputation ofHome Sector stands above reproach.
Trading its nameis like leaving First Class ...for Coach.

Changing the namewould be committing a Crime!!!

Renaming Home Sector????Sayit isnt So!!!!
Leave it alone!!! DON'T Let it GO!!!!!!
"Keep it HomeSector" That will be my PLEA!!
