I just realized that today is my one year anniversary of joining card chronicle, which I am officially dubbing my "Chroniversary". So I just wanted to say thanks for all the great times. All the entertaining game threads, the great GIFs, awesome photos, the camaraderie and the greatest place for card fans to meet and discuss on the internet.
A quick look back at some of the greatest parts of my first year on Card Chronicle. 1st, my time spent prepping for the Belk Bowl, the depression following losing that and then being beaten by our ugly next door neighbor. RUSSDICULOUS! and all the other great Russ things. "Hire Brad Stevens". Our struggling season that somehow materialized into a big east championship (In which I wore the same pair of jeans, t-shirt and louisville hoodie). Our awesome final four run in which we somehow came from behind against Florida to get to. A final four!!! The longest wait for football I have ever experienced in my life. A great smackdown of our bucktooth next door neighbors to open the season. Overtime win of epic proportions over Cincinnati returning the keg to it's rightful place. A 9-0 start in which we climbed into the top 10. The rise of the bird mask. Our invitation to the ACC and the most epic "green everything" thread. A thrilling come from behind victory over Rutgers to clinch a BCS berth. Charlie sticking around followed by another epic "green everything" thread. The most difficult voting I have ever had to make in the CC man of the year opening rounds. A long time coming win over our toothless neighbors. And finally, this next week, a second trip for cardnation to Lou Orleans for the Sugar Bowl.
If you are still reading, well you must be really bored, but I want to thank all of you for helping make this year great (yes, even you ScorpioCard with your eeyore complex). Here's to many more in the future. Go Cards, Beat Florida!
