Re: Any chance Patrick will start posting here?

Actually, I have always used as my nom de guerre "Hannibal" after Hannibal of Carthage. The Romans were 10 and 0 until they went and screwed with the wrong guy, who through a series of brilliant tactical and strategic moves took them 2 falls for 3. He didn't just think outside the box, he didn't care where the box was (end-running the Romans by crossing the Alps on elephants? I bet that was not one the Romans had anticipated.)

Yes, he lost in the end to Scipio Africanus, fled to Syria and when the Romans caught up with him 10 years later, drank poison. But he fought the good fight.

I am also aware of the George Peppard and Anthony Hopkins versions. Nothing wrong with those. One has to set one's sights high.
