There’s Always Next Year…

I want to thank every single one of my Angels and the entire Angels organization for a fantastic, memorable, inspirational season.  I also want to wish the Phillies all the luck in the world…okay, just kidding.  Game 1 of the World Series will start in just about an hour, and although I won’t be able to watch, I’m sure it will be an exciting battle between two very good teams. 

I also want to thank everyone who stopped by and read my musings about the Angels, the MLB and my take on what it’s like to be a devoted Angels fan.  I began this blog on opening day as a tribute to my Dad and as a cathartic means to get through my first season of baseball without him.  He taught me what it means to be a fan, through good times and bad, and I’ve felt his presence during every game and at every visit to the Big A this year. 

I plan to continue blogging throughout the off-season.  There’s plenty of baseball-related topics to discuss as well as other things worth mentioning here and there.  I was completely surprised with my #57 ranking on MLB Blogs and I thank everyone for their support, comments and opposing points of view.  I’ve been exposed to a wonderful world of baseball addicts like me and appreciate all they say and do to support their teams.

Sorry for the lack of pictures and my brief entry.  I am sitting on my balcony aboard the Mariner of the Seas.  We are docked in Mazatlan and head to Puerto Vallarta tomorrow.  I don’t think there’s enough tequila in Mexico to begin to mend the heartbreak of my Angels not making it to the World Series, but I’m experimenting.  I’ll be back from my cruise next week and will be refreshed and ready to think ahead to April of 2010.  Because as every fan (except Phillies and Yankees) know all too well right now, there’s always next year!!!  Adios amigos!!
