So yesterday I was informed by Pat McGrath himself that he would no longer be working with TRT. He is currently working on taking his talents to the Florida Panthers official website. I was caught by surprise with the news and I completely missed how one of the last articles posted on the Panthers website, which I had read as well, was written by him. So with this said I wanted to make sure I left a couple of words for him.
I never thought one day I would ever be involved in writing anything for anyone. I am the type of person who has his way with math and numbers and finds himself with hardly any affinity with literature and letters. Thank you very much Pat for not only giving me a crack at it and opening up a new world for me but for also all the encouragement and support that you have given me. But more importantly though, thank you for all the material that you have generated for all the Panthers fans out there. I am certainly one of them that has been following up on your articles and will continue to do so in your new job. I wish you all the luck in the world and may you write about a team that is always in the playoffs for as long as you are there.
