Ten years!

Today I'm celebrating a very significant milestone -- 10 years of being a Carbo fan.  Some of my blog readers may be surprised to learn that I've only really been a fan of Guy since 2008 and not since his playing days.  Believe me, the fact that I missed out on his playing career is one of my biggest regrets.  I think of all the things that have happened in my life since I started following Guy.  Jobs, a relationship, the death of my father.  My admiration for this man has inspired me during the good times and comforted me during the hard times.

I think it speaks to how special Guy is that he's managed to hold my interest for this long.  I've always been a fangirl -- in fact, I jokingly list one of my job titles as "professional fangirl."  Some of the fandoms I've been in haven't lasted ten minutes, let alone ten years.  Carbo's achievements in the sporting world, his kindness to his fans, and his humble personality are a true inspiration.  

So here's to ten years, and many more.  Thank you, Guy, for being you and for continuing to be my hero.  Bless you.
