Thank You, Crawford & Thank You, Sponsors

As you probably know, today is the day our Thank You to Carl Crawford is running in the Tampa Bay Times. If you don't live in the Tampa Bay area or haven't seen the paper yet, here's what it looks like. When we started this, I thought it was an impossible goal to find enough support for this note, but you all proved me wrong. To all of our sponsors out there, I  can't thank you enough:

This project was about two things: thanking our franchise's best player for his service in our community, and showing the world that Tampa Bay fans do exist and have class and dignity. I think we've sent both messages loud and clear.

If you'd like to leave a personal message for Crawford - a favorite memory, a personal thank you, whatever - feel free to do so in the comments below and we'll do everything in our power to pass it along. If you thought this project was stupid or would like to trash Crawford for going to Boston, please seek out another thread - this one is not for you.

Thanks again, Crawford. And thanks to all of our sponsors.
