Thank you Chris. Thank you for being so easy to cheer for. Thank you for reminding me that some guys don’t play for the money or the fame, but because they just really love the game. Thank you for making me cry every time you spoke because I was just so happy for you.

Thanks for your hilariously underwhelming enthusiasm. Thanks for your goofy, earnest interviews. Thank you for seeming like everyone’s best friend.

Thank you for being one of the best stories of the 2015 season. Even if everyone remembers your legacy as tainted, I won’t forget what you did for us. So thank you.
