Not sure about the first two letters but "Of The Year Award".
Thanks for replying. I figured CV knew what it was:

Went to Staples this morning to load up on more $200 Visa giftcards and bought 10 of them cuz I'm heading upstate to Walmart later today. The cashier asked what do I do with $2000 in giftcards so I told her all about Bluebird and paying your bills/rent essentially with a credit card. By the time I was done explaining it & pulling my Ink Bold & BB cards out of my wallet I had all the employees in the store standing around me listening, writing down "dansdeals.com" AWESOME! Now the only problem is, I may never be able to get the giftcards there anymore if the employees are always buying them out! :) Thanks Dan!!
Made my list of DAOTYA!

DAOTYA?
I like this one so I decided to carry on the tradition another member started. It seemed a little too personal for me so I added a "C" (comment).

It's a sacred tradition you're carrying on. You should be blessed.

The Baal Shem Tov went around for the sole purpose of getting Jews to say, baruch (drawing down) Hashem into our lives.

What does "metal" mean?

I think the context of his post makes it clear that he means airplane.

Not as an acronym but it definitely is used to refer to the actual plane in a discussion (as opposed to the airline) e.g. we booked on BA's website but the flight was on AA metal.
