I know what you’re thinking. Maybe I got annoyed by something someone said. Maybe after two Super Bowls in a row I’m satiated on the Chiefs. Maybe I’m going to prison, or joining Dick Cheney on a barnstorming tour, or maybe the antifreeze actually wasn’t a good idea and I died.

The fun of a farewell forever thread is not in knowing the reason. It’s in not knowing, and the mystery behind the disappearance. MrBlond is legendary not because he was here or because he left, but rather because of how he departed. He was DB Cooper jumping out of the Chiefsplanet plane and disappearing into the night, and with that act he became immortal.

It is now my time to parachute from the plane, and I can assure you that I will not return. It would be enjoyable to become an unsolved Chiefsplanet mystery in the process, but I can’t do that to you. It’s cruel enough that you will no longer get to read my thoughtful prose and learn from my wisdom. I can’t allow you to speculate forever about what became of me, and to always wonder if that guy with the fake glasses and mustache sitting next to you at the game is me.

So I’ve instructed one Chiefsplanet member to reveal the mystery. If this thread ever reaches 1,000 posts, that person will share the reason. But until then, you will have only my boarding pass, a flight attendant’s vague description, and 110,871 posts to remember me by.

Farewell, Chiefsplanet!

(Sound of wind rushing past an open passenger cabin door.)

Social media isn't social.

RIP, brother.

Thankful I had the good fortune of meeting you in person.
Sad indeed. RIP

Sorry to lose a guy like this from our board. I admire his bravery and humor in the face of terrible illness.

We will all lose our charms in the end.

God Speed Patteeu. Hope things are better now that you've broken through to the other side.

With those who had been in the know about his illness posting earlier in the thread I wondered if he was in hospice.

I think Pat would have loved the energy of this thread, and the first pages really are a tribute to his contribution and impact of this forum. RIP threads are unfortunately becoming all too common around here, but I do appreciate that this one had a different, and fun energy that will stand as a remembrance to a titan of a poster in this place.

RIP, Pat.

Just my opinion. Doesn't mean I'm right.

He hasn't posted since the 20th of January.

I admire his handling his sickness with grace. I'm really sad he lost his wife. She was at the tailgate, too.

I just wish I could've been there for him in some fashion.

This feels like when my step dad died.

Diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, died seven days later. No funeral, no service..

Just gone.

:sad:
One of his daughters was going to post something after his death so we waited. We gave them their space. Ended up still being too raw so they said go ahead and let people know on the Planet.

He was adamant that he didn't want people to know about the health issues. You have to respect his wishes.

Of course.

Doesn't make it hurt any less.

My prayers go out to the family. I'm sorry for their loss.

Wow. You guys did a great job impersonating his style. I really thought it was him.

Rest In Peace, Patteau. You will be missed.
Now that I read that, it is a little whimsical for patteeu, has the Rain man flair.

Still sad to see my internet friend go. :-)

It was a good tribute.

Perhaps he and Logical are sitting on a cloud arguing about the draft and the color of the sky. :-)
