Cheers for the welcome!! Most English call Scots 'Jock' in a derogatory bigoted manner without knowing the true meaning of the word. Short for 'jock-strap' because we invented it and have something worth protecting beneath it!! - unlike our neighbours south of Hadrians wall!! The 'jock-strap' is/was a garment Scots wear under their kilts in the cold Winter months to stop their manhood from dropping off due to frostbite!! lol Jock is also slang for 'penis' for obvious reasons!! However, the word 'jock' originated in Scotland in the 16th/17th century when John was a common christian name. Scots (and Americans) going by the name John are often called 'Jack' or 'Jock'. So there you have it. History lesson for the day. Hope that has helped clear things up.

For those of us who don't know (ie. American!), what is the relationship between Scottish and Jock? I would assume the term doesn't mean that all Scots are athletes.

Welcome, btw.

My username 'sweatysock' is cockney/London slang for 'Jock' (for those that don't already know). I am Scottish, hence 'jock', and as I've lived in London for much of my adult life, I've adopted 'sweatysock' as my username on other forums including this one. Scottish and proud!!

In many JP & Halford's lyrics, Rob uses eternal , eternity & eternally. Showing my respect to JP is being a servant for JP.

Metal because of the music, dog because I compete with dogs, and it's also a play on "metalgod".

Judas Rising is such a classic Priest song, and that line always sticks in my head.

Now that I think about it, I chose blackshadow, because it reminded me of a nightmare I used to have as a child that I was being stalked/chased by a scary looking creepy black shadow.

Scorpions are one of my favorite bands. I've been  listening to them since the early 70's and I'm born in November and I'm a typical scorpio.

My online name is "rheis". My real name is Rheon. So "rheis" is like a "nickname" version of my real name.

Rade is my name, and Nbg is short for Novi Beograd, so it means "Rade from Novi Beograd", simple
