I've written dozens of sports columns for the Local - if not, hundreds. And this may be the most difficult of them all. After all, it's not too often that you say goodbye to something that means so much to you.
It's time to move on, and probably long overdue. But trust me when I say this: it's in the best interest for us all.
Are you ready? This will be the final week you will see the cheesy thumbs-up mug shot that goes along with my weekly column. It was a great run, but people in the community have told me it's time for a change, and I finally agreed.
