Welp. That was...something. Fun for a while, frustrating for a lot of it, but nobody can take away that it was All About the A for 100% of it. A lot of memories were forged from this season of forced reality reassessment , none so more touching and bad ass than Adam Foote's final game, final shift, final victory and, ultimately, his final goodbye.
And so we all said goodbye to one of the more famous Avs as well as one of the more infamous seasons in franchise history. Moving forward, on a more personal note I want to use this tiny space not to talk about gaming, comics, or even hot chicks. Rather, I just want to use it all up to say thank you to MHH for continuing to be an outstanding overall community to be a part of and, more specifically, not running me out of this little internet space despite my blatant laziness.
MHH has been and will hopefully continue to be a fairly significant portion of my life and I look forward to an off-season full of snark, hilarious photochops and BiB accusing me of hating good alcohol and women altogether (only half right, BiBster) as we eagerly await seeing our favorite hockey team once again hit the ice for what hopefully will be the next positive step forward in the rebuilding process and not a sideways step signaling stagnation.
At the end of the season, thank Roy (suck it, Howard) I'm lucky enough to be an Avalanche fan and have such a great group of people to indulge my hockey junkieness with.
