    And now the end is near........

    Post  Sweatsock on Thu Oct 29, 2009 3:06 am

    And so I face the final curtain
    My friend I'll say it clear
    I'll state my case of which I'm certain

    I've lived a life that's full
    I traveled each and every highway
    And more, much more than this
    I did it my way.

    ---------------------------------

    Well guys, been holding off on this for a while but figured the time was right to break the news. Next June, all being well, I'm gonna be a dad for the first time. Happy doesn't get close to how I'm feeling right now but there's a wee bit of sadness in there as well. Sadness in the sense that as a dad to be with a near 4 year old step-daughter already taking up loads of my time, I don't really have time for Smash or indeed wrestling in general at the moment.

    There won't be any grand deactivating of my account, nor am I actually 'leaving the board' like so many others in the past but my presence will be greatly reduced aroud these here parts, as it has been already sicne the summer. I've got priorities now that have taken over surfing the 'net and Smash for hours on end. Between my family, my job and my refereeing I have very little time for anything else and if I'm honest I'm a different person from this time last year, and that's not just because I bought FIFA 10 instead of PES for the first time since 2000, last week. I've grown up, I've moved out of the parental home, I've bought a car (Which has just been written off because a daft cow ran into the back of me last Friday. Bitch) and most importantly I've learned how to live without you guys in my life.

    I've had a lot of fun on here in the last 7 and a bit years and met some terrific people and had some great bevvies with some great friends, all because of this board. This place used to be great and it'd be nice if it coud get close to that again but I just don't have the time or effort needed for that to happen which is why I'm stepping back. I'm sure Garibald will keep things going and push on with some new ideas we'd been discussing but I'll leave him to update you on that.

    So, in conclusion and in the words of my favourite, bearded, scottish comedian:

    Fuck off and leave me alone! Very Happy

    Congrats!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
    I can't imagine what a great feeling being a father will be, with a bit of luck he'll be a Rangers fan!! Twisted Evil Joking aside that's great news, I feel really happy for you!

    Can't believe that you've chosen Fifa over PES though...

    Good luck with fatherhood and the refereeing, since you've been gone you've missed some quality performances from FYAYS against Men in Black and the return of Super Showstealer. cool v

    I think we're all wondering the same thing here... Would you be able to attend the child's Christmas play without going for a cigarette and missing their big line?
