Sharks

Oh, Drew

Thanks to some much-needed sleep, I look much less like a rage zombie from 28 Days Later and more like a normal person! I was already getting strange looks from people in public, and lemme tell you, I'm glad that I'm not normally hideous. :P

I'm glad I'm not alone in my extreme emotional reaction to Drew leaving. :P Lots of people posted to the message boards about crying when they heard about it and 67% in a poll felt sadder about him leaving than losing the series. There was a whole article in the Mercury News about Drew, and remember, hockey is not big at all here in the Bay Area, which makes it even more amazing.

Tons of people called in to his radio show in Saskatoon to tell him they loved him and would miss him and stuff and his co-host was totally stunned that everyone loved him so much, haha. I hope he does get a job with CBC or TSN so I can see him again, but it just wouldn't be the same, and I have the suspicion that he would have to stifle part of what made him so loved here to appear on national TV and might just come across as being annoying (to most people; he's always annoyed at least some people, I'm sure).

Anyway, here's a video clip of the announcement that he's leaving *cries* and ze article:
