The Relatively Short Good Bye

Post by Stonehouse on Wed Dec 09, 2009 1:16 pm

Hey PN faithful... just wanted to drop a quick note to say that my posting days are likely coming to an end on here. It's a good news/bad news situation for me... last week I was hired to work at UP (which I am thrilled about!), but though I won't be working in the athletics department, I will be doing PR/media relations and likely will be working pretty closely with athletics. So... as much as it pains me, I am going to have to hang up the spikes, as it were.

I probably will still post things like links and promotions and things like that, but not much beyond that. It's been a pleasure to post here and to get to know all of you, and I'll definitely still be around.

Before I go... keep up the faith with this year's basketball team - I know it's in a tough stretch right now, but we are still a good team that we have every reason to be very proud of. Don't let the dizzying heights of a few weeks ago sour you to the rest of this season. Right now, this team needs our support more than ever, and I really hope as many of you as possible will be there for the games over the holidays. I know the schedule isn't full of heavy hitters and the games are at odd times, but while the students are gone the team will be relying on the rest of us to carry them through the rest of December.

We're Pilot fans... we've been through seemingly endless years of, at best, mediocrity. What's happening right now with this program, with an excellent coach and a true buzz around it... I haven't seen it before. And even if we end up, say, 3rd or 4th in the WCC and with only 18 or 19... that would be back-to-back winning seasons for what has been a moribund program for years and years. It's important to have expectations and I definitely have them for this team, but I also have the ability to step back from it for a bit and just enjoy the fact that I can say I support a winning team and am truly proud to be a Pilot basketball fan.

And remember... there is LOTS of basketball left to be played. We haven't heard the last of these guys... not for a long shot.

This is SOOO cool!

Now I have a source "close to the administration" !

Though considering you named Danielle Brunasche as the Danielle who was coming to UP, I'm not sure how reliable that is. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Good luck with your new job. I know you will do well.

Congrats to you, Stoney. I know this is a great opportunity for you, but you will be missed. Please remember to check back in and keep us in line if we get bent outta shape... Sad

You have always been a thoughtful, insightful poster here, and I appreciate all the help you have given since we started up this site!
Cheers!

Scarey, yes.

And "source close to the administration"? Absolutely! I'll be just one floor below.

As for hitting 2500, oh man, Wizzy, I don't know if I've got it in me. But maybe I'll give it a shot... I do have nothing but free time til Monday.

As for Danielle Brunasche... hey, I got all the rest of them right, and all I had was a first name to go on. So sue me. :p

My question is, does the new job mean you have to switch to a different ring tone?

Stonehouse,
I've only been on PN for 10ish months but I've always appreciated your posts. You always had a lot of interesting things to say and you kept things in perspective. It's been a pleasure.

Good luck with the new job. Hopefully I'll see you around Chiles and around campus.

Best Wishes,

ShipstadPilot11

Even an old coot like me has enjoyed and relished your contributions to Pilot Nation from the onset. Best of luck and may you have time to enjoy your future. I'm old!

Congratulations on the new job.

Are you still going to be able to lead the PN cheering section in Vegas?

Probably, But I'll wager you won't see him wearing a USF shirt this year and cheering for them.

Congrats! So, I guess if you believe the underground rumors that you and PurpleGeezer are really the same person, you aren't going anywhere....or wait does that mean that PG is also accepting a new job??? I'm so confused.

You ARE confused. It's been well established that DTR and Stoney are the same person.

As to accepting ANY job... shoot me first.

Oh no... The Geez's consipiracy theory is that Mr. S. House and I are one in the same, a one person good cop/bad cop routine unto itself. I personally think Purplegeezer is really Sir Francis Bacon. Call it the Baconian Theory...

I see...wait, but, Stoney doesn't like Pliney and DTR does... Maybe it's DTR and PG who are the
same. Hmmm...

Thanks for all the posts over the years. If you still get to wear a cool headset and watch games for free it won't be so bad. Getting paid to watch the Pilots is awesome, as some of us know. Very Happy

DTR has just outed himself as Harry Stratford Caldecott. I am NOT old enough to have written the William Strachy letters.


NOT! NOT!

Mmmm . . . bacon!

Sorry, lost my train of thought for a minute. Stoney, what's the deal? If you hang around the campus long enough they wear down and give you a desk? Laughing

Best wishes for a long Pilot career. cheers

If so I should like to think the Pilot Fight Song would go off in the middle of board meetings...
