DJ's heartfelt goodbye made me realize that I never actually made my formal exit (or entrance) like I would have wanted to. I've loved my time in Hamilton and for the record it was my first choice to return to Hamilton regardless of the state the team has been in as of late. I would have loved to brave it out and get it turned around with DJ, Brock, Jason, Jesse and Corey etc. The situation being what it was, I felt it was best to make my exit on my own terms to allow me more time to explore other options for a longer period of time as opposed to sitting in limbo until February, which worked out well for all involved. I thank the organization for doing that as well, since they certainly didn't have to.
I've always loved playing in Ivor Wynne both as a visitor and as the home team, and that won't change even on my new team. You guys make this game alot more fun than it should be with your passion for your team as rabid and misdirected as it may be at times. You can tell that it's pride in the city that makes you that way, and I dig it.
For what it's worth, and I to me it is worth something...I'll cherish my time in the hammer in spite of the losses the boo's and in light of the support and few fans that started to come around. I TRULY appreciate ALL of it, even the slamming that I take on this board and the silence that I notice when I play well...(dontcha hate that?..lol.) So for all of that I sincerely thank you.
I'll see you in a couple of months and I'm sure you'll make me feel just as welcome as if I was still a ticat as only ticat fans can...
Whatever product ends up on the field this year, try to support them because if they don't have you...who do they have?
Oskee wee wee,
