A "Thank You" from the Player of the Year

Hello Hounds,

I’d like to apologize for being nearly asleep for most of Saturday evening. I guess that’s what happens when someone my age only gets a couple hours of sleep.

In any case, after a day of sleep to recover and a few hectic days at work I can finally do this properly.

THANK YOU EVERYONE for awarding me “The Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence: Player of the Year”! I have to say that I was very surprised….which is probably the only sentiment that I was able to convey on Saturday night. I am also very honoured to be awarded such a great group of friends and team mates because you are all people and players that I hold in high regard.

I feel there are many players who are more deserving than I, not the least of whom is Chris for his outstanding leadership throughout the season. I had a bit of a rocky summer season this year which seemed to mirror parts of the Hounds’ season. In the end though I remembered why I play this game and what a talented group of people I have the privilege of playing with. It’s fun to play with people who can all learn a little something from each other to grow as a team. I was able to learn from each of you and I can only hope that I brought even a fraction of the amount I learned to the team. So there you have it, this award belongs to all of you!

Chris: awesome job on the trophy! I might have to look into getting it bronzed.

Oh yeah….thank for coming by on Saturday everyone! I hope you enjoyed the food and company….and that you all had enough to eat.

Cheers,
Tien


So much more humble than Gollum when he won his MTV Movie Award in 2003:

Chris, I have to admit, the blog had fell off on my most visited website list. You however responded back with a few amazing posts!!!

I wish I could have been there at the end of season party. As usual, it looked like a lot of fun. And I'm sure Tien would only allow amazing ribs to be cooked at his place.

Congrats for your prize Tien, you trully deserve it!

Simon, I might fill out an application form for next year's team just in case I make a come back to T.O. If not, have you thought about franchising the Hounds, or having an international farm team?
