halfsharkalligatorhalfman Posted June 20, 2012 Share Posted June 20, 2012 It's difficult to make a post like this without seeming corny or overdramatic but here it goes: I've been here since 2002. I've had great conversations on this forum about the Devils and hockey in general. I've really enjoyed it. It's been a source of amusement in my life. Unfortunately I've made the personal decision to stop being a Devils fan and instead become a Sharks fan. Basically I now live in the Bay Area and want to settle down there for the forseeable future. I haven't lived in the NJ area for almost 5 years now and I want to root for the "home team." I think it's more rewarding and even though I've been a devout Devils fan for years, it's harder being away. Also I think Sports are a useful way to attach yourself to the community at large, and I want to make the leap. I don't want to be a sports bigamist (although I'll always have a soft spot for the Devils) and this offseason seems like the right time to force myself to convert, since the Devils look better than the Sharks for the first time in years I don't feel overly guilty, and a lockout is on the horizon. I don't want to stop visiting this site (this isn't goodbye) since I enjoy it so much, but the fact is I will no longer be "one of you" and I imagine I will not be as involved/interested in the site as I one was. I figured a post like this was appropriate even though verbalizing all of this seems kind of silly. Still I want to come clean as I post here into the future. Remember, it's not you, it's me.
