BDM is the only person I can remember covering me the first time I played on the PT back in 2001-2004 and still being there now 20 years later. Your coverage will be missed, but gl with the new job, and I'm hoping I'll still see you at the PT now that you are eligible to compete! https://t.co/fqVX87maDf
