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