Ok so it's been a while. I know. Too long. I guess you can call it a sabbatical or perhaps I could flatter myself and call it a "writers block"
Really, I was just waiting for a real nice opportunity to share some delicious good news.
Some of you may already know this but anyway, I had to do the blog splash so here we go:
I have been inducted to the HALL OF FAME. To me it's an incredible honor. Something I dreamed of. I've seen a lot of people get inducted including: Buddy Hall, Earl Strickland, Ewa Mataya, Allison Fisher, Allen Hopkins, Ralf Souquet, Johnny Archer etc etc.
I had aspirations, dreams, goals, deadlines, falls, victories that had to be crossed en route. It has indeed been an incredible journey.
Actually, when I first found out, I was really beside myself. I got the goosebumps. I even had to sit down and let it sink in. What an honor.
Anyway, I have quite a few people to thank. The list goes so deep it would totally occupy the rest if the day. I'll get into that some other time.
For now I just have to thank my friends and family, my sponsors, my fellow competitors and last but not least, my fans. Every component has shaped me to be the person I am today and I wouldn't trade a minute.
I would also like to congratulate Jose Parica for getting inducted from the veterans vote. His contribution to the sport has been unquestionable. The man still plays a mean game.
The official induction ceremony and dinner will be held in conjunction with the USOpen, October 17th.
