Farewell, comrades

Misone says goodbye.

As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end...

Over the last four and a half years, I have had the great pleasure to write covering the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams. Never in a million years did I see this coming. It was never a goal or my intent, but it just kind of worked out that way.

I am beyond grateful for the opportunity that was presented to me. I remember it like it was yesterday. Turf Show Times was looking to expand on its staff, and Doug (Morrison) reached out to me. He sent me an email and the conversation went from there. Initially I was opposed to the idea. I enjoyed writing and football. I would blog randomly, but it was just about the fun. My fear was if I made it a task, I would hate it. Doug disagreed.

I'm glad he did, because he was absolutely correct.

Writing for TST took my love to new heights. As time went on, I gained more and more opportunities and eventually became the host of the #1 Rams podcast in the world, Turf Show Radio.

Words will never express how appreciative I am of Doug, Ryan Van Bibber, Joe McAtee and Brandon Bate. And I can't forget about the amazing staff I have had the privilege to work with over the years. All 6,000 of you guys. You guys are the best. We have had some amazing conversations both on the site and in our staff chats.

I came here on my own just wanting to enjoy good conversation about my beloved Rams team. I ended up joining an amazing staff, and making a lot of friends in the process.

I will no longer be apart of this amazing staff. I will still be around popping up in the comments from time to time and maybe even dropping a FanPost here and there, but my time has come to an end. It’s a very emotional moment as I love talking to you guys more than you will ever know.

No matter how much we have argued or agreed over the years, I have truly appreciated the feedback, support and criticism from you all. Without readers, there is no TST. I always tried to take everything you guys offered and apply it to future writings. I took so much pride in my work, and you all were the driving force for that pride. I thank you all for even entertaining my posts over the years. You guys made it easy to write here on the site and talk football on the pod.

I love my Rams fan brethren.

Who knows, it's entirely possible I make a return down the line. But for now and the foreseeable future, this will be my last post. I just wanted to tell you guys, THANK YOU.

Go Rams!!!!!!!!!
