Default Adios Amigos...Line Up for a Free Shot at Footsteps

Sorry mods...move if you wish but where else can I put this?

OK here's the deal, when you get right down to it is there really any good reason to do this more than 13,800 times? Hmmm? Cripes I think not...I mean come on by the latest count it looks like I'm the 36th biggest loser in this place so I gotta draw the line somewhere just for sheer self respect ya know?

To avoid a Montrose repeat I'll just say this, that MAYBE this is gonne be my parting shot in here ...but more than likely I'll pop in once in a blue moon...who knows? I might do a bendog and vanish for a year or so...I haven't really thought about it. I figured though that I should say both a goodby and a see ya later at the same time, but really I just wanted to let all you folks I've had the pleasure of pleasing or annoying take one final shot or two...or wouldn't seem fair otherwise. This time I won't fight back so swing away...

If anyone has to know (though I doubt you do), over the last 3 years I've been working 90 hour weeks to get myself to a goal and finally there's some light at the end of the tunnel so I know this is now paying off the way I've hoped it would. That means I'm in the home stretch of an opportunity I set my sights on in 2004, and it also means I'm about to work considerably harder for another 2 years before I can set things on cruise control with a normal life, whatever that is. If a business has ever owned you then I guess you get me. If you got a family also I know you do. Something's gotta there ya go.

I know, who cares right? Point taken.

Fine...humor me then and consider this my way of ensuring I avoid temptation to remain here against my better judgement. I figured the best way to exit stage left is to mention a few halls of fame and shame:

First thanks to the best of the bunch in here...I'll name a few but I'm sure I'll miss most of you...those with solid stuff I always like reading most; Buff, SoCal, Blue, QuietTiger, Abilene, Jason in LA, Elsid, Montrose, MissI, LABF, Sassy...basically if I've ever rep'd you more than a few times then you're on my A list even if I'm forgetting you now. If I get to Denver for a game some time maybe I'll PM a couple of you folks, etc...

Now to the other end of the spectrum... you all know who you are...pretty sure anyone can guess without me calling you d-bags out but what fun would that be huh? ...So just so you don't feel slighted that would be broncoklansman7, Dramallama/McSkillethead, Popps and his moronic minions, missouriracist, karenin, barry...and a host of other's not worth giviing satisfaction to, most of whom wasted to much of my time in the WRP with your tripe. A major kick in the balls to -Slap- just in case that stain ever lurks in here which he probably does...the only complete and utter jackass I've ever put on iggy I'm pleased to say.

Beyond that...Mock you need some serious professional help...dude please I'm not kidding...the cat thing?...I think that is the sanest you get, Spider you're not far from it either my throat punching friend. I hope I'm never doing 75 next to you on I-35 in Dallas... I still like reading your stuff though cuz it's funny but 75,000 man...are you serious? Can you get a hobby at least?

All I can say now is that poking some of you clowns in the eye whenever possible would only have been more fun if I could have just dropped a beer on ya from the upper deck at Invesco. In any case I hope a few of you losers will wake up and get your act together one of these days...thanks for giving me so much amusement anyway. Everyone needs some comedic relief. You all did it very well.

Finally to all those who accused me of thinking I'm smarter than you or an arrogant SOB...fair enough, but in my defense I can only justify myself on the basis of it being true. Not that this is much to be proud of, since even the special ed class has one kid who can sharpen a pencil better even if he can't write his own name eh?

Seriously now...I wish eveyone in here the best and a season much better than I project for the team...OUR team...because despite what some of you ninnies think we ALL bleed orange and blue and most of us always have/always will through good, bad and UGLY but I was here for this stuff with Lou Saban...ya get it? I'm pulling for McD, Orton, etc...IF I was wrong on all this I will of course make an exception to returning just to visit back in at some point to eat my share of crow...hopefully that will be the case.

I might lurk now and then or pop in once in a blue moon (or not) but I gotta put the nose to the grindstone now ...I only have so many hours in a day...just one more thing...OK two then; thanks Taco for the board even though you banned me once and I know you find me irritating, and second...

GO BRONCOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flame away...adios amigos

You were drafted in my class in April 2005. I guess you got injured before me as I chose to play halfheartedly and collect the paychecks for a longer period of time. Adios fellow April 2005.

Always hate to see a long time poster go, no parting shot from here.

All the best in your future endeavors.

13,800+ and you joined in 2005... yeah, you have some sort of issue. Telling people to get a life... priceless.

In case you're "popping in" and see this message... YOU'RE A p***Y.

Good luck and remember, reading the Mane is much more fun than posting on it. I pretty much quit arguing with people after camp. It's just not worth it. I think of myself as a seagull now. Fly in, drop a couple loads of shiat on the mane, fly off and not look back. For example, I seriously doubt I'll ever come back to this thread again. You could spend an hour coming up with a witty response defending yourself and I won't see it. Much better this way.

you dont have to explain what your doing, the people that matter wont mind you leaving without an explanation, and the people that will mind dont matter.

good luck

Footsteps, sorry to see you go. I don't agree with you on some stuff, but then, that's why it's a discussion board.

Hope your goal is reached soon and you receive all that that entails.

Good luck with the family and life in general
