If saying goodbye were easy, people would be better at it.
After 10 years of this, it still sucks. Especially when, as it is in this case, that we are saying goodbye to a couple people that I find myself smiling when I see them return.
Because these are two veterans. Both have only played one season before this (9 in the first case and 7 in the second - if my records are right). But they are familiar faces in the crowd, old friends returning to the fold.
Early on though, people can get lost in the shuffle - and with this season, while there isn't as much of a shuffle, there also isn't as much room for someone to fully get their legs under them for a longer run.
Which means that tonight we are saying goodbye to kotenok_angel
I hope we will continue to see you around, in the Home Game though, and that you will jump back into the fray once Second Chance kicks into gear a little later in the season!
