"just got to move on"


The shock has worn off, and a few days later Tarik Glenn's retirement has been formalized. It is kind of sad, and still a little shocking to see #78 leave this way. I do feel better knowing that this is a decision he is making out of his respect for the team and the game. When you're done, you're done. According to Mr. Glenn:

"Hearing people talk and players asking me to reconsider and reminding me of some of the things and what I mean to this team, it hurts. It really hurts. But I'm real convinced this is what I should do."
I will reiterate what I believe is one of the most refreshing things about this era of the Indianapolis Colts: the players don't mess around or play head games. Tarik isn't using a ploy or acting out because Freeney got paid. He's just done. Good Luck Tarik and thanks for keeping our boy clean all these years.

Aargh! Pardon me, but I'll be in mourning for the rest of the night.

The timing stinks.

Having said that, Good luck, Tarik. You've been a great player and a great person. You'll be missed.

Now, time for me to stare into the darkness as I slip slowly into insanity...
