And me. I'm the children.

He's gone. And I can't but help to wonder how he's doing.

'Cause I wonder where you are and I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely or is someone loving you? (Lionel Riche, "Hello")

But all you have to do is take a look.

There he is. At his new house. With his new friends. In his new clothes. His new helmet.

Same number.

Mocking us. Mocking me.

Because you just know deep down, he's going to do well. Very well. Exceedingly well with his new team.

And The Reviews Are Already Pouring In

The new head coach is over the moon about Matt Stafford playing for the Rams.

Bro.

Come on man.

They're going to do for him what we never could.

Protect him. Nurture him. Give him love.

(This is beginning to sound like I gave up a puppy for adoption that I couldn't take care of.)

Most importantly the one thing they are going to give him, is time in the pocket to complete the pass with that cannon he's still got.

You know what's really going to hurt? When he and the Rams do really well and he wins some big games and the announcers will say it.

The inevitable comparisons and that all he really needed to do was get from under the thumb of the Lions.

People leave this team and do things. Like get Championship Rings.

Remember this guy?

I'm having some fun here. I hope he does well. Good luck Matt. We're gonna miss you. I'm gonna miss you.

Sometimes the only thing you have to change is everything.

But I ain't changing my team.

I bleed Honolulu Blue and Silver until I die.

Coach is ready. I'm in.
