Ty's passing got me thinking about a lot of things; most predominately the power of sport, and its far reaching impact in everyone's life. There are a select few things that can bring people from all across the globe together to become part of a single entity, a single unit, a single family. Sport is one such thing. Devoted sports fans are often criticized for being too engrossed in their favorite team. People who aren't passionate about sports can scarcely understand how the mood of someone can dramatically change based on the crack of bat, the swish of a net, or a tiptoeing catch along the sideline. They can't fully appreciate the thrill of victory, or the agony of defeat.
But the fact remains that sport is one unifying force. People all over the world that you've never even met before are all rooting for the exact same thing that you are, and they are probably perched on the edge of their seat waiting for that next play to unfold, just like you. Not only do we have sports to bring us together, but we are also fortunate enough to share this website where we can laugh together, complain together, and, unfortunately, commiserate together.
I count myself extremely fortunate to belong to this seemingly endless network of Cubs fanatics like me. Even though everyone is just a name and an avatar on a computer screen, sports fans - and Cubs fans, in particular - are a family. The Cubs (and Bleacher Nation) brought everyone in this community together. And when someone leaves it, the impact of that loss is felt by all.
Rest In Peace, Ty.

And, though we should say these kinds of things more often: much love to all of you. Yeah, this place is my job, but it also makes me very happy to have a group like this to consider friends.
