I spent about thirty minutes trying to figure out a good way to start this post. Which honestly, I'm not even sure I have a clear idea of what I'm going to write about. I've been reading FieldGulls for about 3 years. I actually found out about this website while reading comments on an article on seahawk addicts. It started as an off and on thing where I would casually browse the articles for a title that would pique my interest. Then one day I read an article by he who must not be named, aka John Morgan. Thats when the love affair began.
Now before you go and assume all I want to talk about is how much I miss John Morgan let me tell you you're wrong. When John first left this blog i was devastated. I didn't eat, sleep or go to work... okay that may have been an exaggeration. But it was very upsetting. I had obsessive compulsively read every one of johns articles, to the point where I was checking FG every 10 minutes when i was on the computer, which was a lot. Then he left leaving a hole in my heart that I refused to let Danny Kelly fill. I didn't know who he was, but it wasn't John Morgan so I didn't like him. That's how it stayed for a while too. I'd really only come and check the blog for those little blue boxes that would report any breaking hawk related news.
Things didn't change until I became starved for anything hawk related. So I came crawling back on my knees groveling at Danny Kelly's feet to please seek pity on me and feed me from your teat of hawk knowledge and hawk commentary (metaphorically of course). Since then I've been to the website every single day for over a year now. Im incredibly grateful for the insight that all of the contributors here at FG provide day in and day out. Even the contributions in the comments are great to read because its not all bashing of other teams while trying to defend your own team like it is on the NFCW blog. It's actual reasonable football conversation.
I finally got up the courage today to actually come out and say something on this blog that I value so greatly. I know this letter/fanshot isn't perfectly structured or even possibly coherent for that matter. I'd like to start contributing my own thoughts here as well, so hopefully my writing gets better with practice. So I'll just end this with thank you to the entire Field Gulls community for helping to make this IMO the best sports blog on the internet.
