How do I say goodbye to what we had?
Remember the time Felix threw his perfect game, and I only commented on it after finding out he threw a perfect game on Facebook? And how about all those great LL posts that I only read the first paragraph within my RSS reader? And who could possibly forget my single-rec'd fanpost masterpiece, "Which Mariner(s) Are Going To The All-Star Game?".No one, obviously.
Yet, it is with a sad heart (and a deep vein thrombosis in my right thigh) that I announce that this will be the last, and second, fanpost I ever write for Lookup Landing....er, I mean, Lookout Landing.
This isn't the way I envisioned leaving, of course. If I had to guess, my departure would have followed a profanity-laced, violently-angry tirade against the Mariner's front office after trading Felix Hernandez. A swift strike from the Banhammer, that's always the way I see myself going out. Or maybe I make the hipster move, and start rooting for another team with a very small fanbase, so I can rock their obscure merchandise. I mean, that's the reason people still cheer for the Royals, right? Or maybe I'll get banned for saying that baseball is boring, because it is (oops).
I don't know where this road is going to lead, but wherever it leads I certainly won't be writing fanposts about the Seattle Mariners there. I've been writing two articles between the day I was born and right now, and it's time to write two articles about something else. ANYTHING else.
But I'll still be lurking on this website, (not patiently) waiting for the day that the Mariners become a World Series contender again, at which time I'll start actively commenting as if I've been on the bandwagon the entire time. Thanks to Jeff and Matthew for help making this site what it is today, and the Mariners, for being so easy to ignore for the past decade.
And I'll take with me the memories, to be my sunshine after the rain.
