A RowBot's Goodbye


I wanted to make a sort of goodbye post on PR before I left, and given that I have exactly 12 hours left until I'm officially on my mission, I better do it now =).

 

 

Tomorrow, I'm leaving for Utah to head to the LDS Church's Missionary Training Center. I'll spend three weeks there before I go the the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission. In total, I will be gone for two years. I will be spending my time proselyting and doing service in the communities where I serve. This also means that I will be gone from PR for those two years, and I will obviously miss interacting with the community here.

I wanted to thank everyone for the experience of being a Rockies fan with people. I grew up in central Illinois, and I always felt like the odd man out when it came to baseball fandom.

Even though today might be a dark day for many Rockies fans, I know that, when this team does turn things around, the excitement will make the prior struggles worth it. Even if the season ends short of expectations, I can promise that, at least once, the team will show a newfound fire that will spark the hope and anticipation that every fan hopes for.

Thanks again for all of the great memories, and for the ever-present hope that maybe, just maybe, I will be watching when the Rockies lighs up LoDo with Rocktober Part III.

Eat. Drink. Be Merry. But the above FanPost does not necessarily reflect the attitudes, opinions, or views of Purple Row's staff (unless, of course, it's written by the staff [and even then, it still might not]).
