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.)

My 30's were mostly family deaths, depression, a horrible job, and borderline alcoholism.

We really should have a CP reunion every 5 years or so. Perhaps be able to vote on CP HOF posters. A permanent wall of fame on the site...

Same, man.

I came over here from the Star board. Was 19 when I joined in 2001. Staring at 40 next year.

I love-hate all you beautiful bastards. Weíve lost some good ones.

we rarely see someone get to go out on their own terms. When it happens, you honor that shit.

22 years later, you suckers are still stuck with me. *grin* Hope to retire in the next couple of years, which means more time to hang out on the board.

Started over on the old Star Board in the early 90's...I was 40. I am a short time away from retirement myself.

Each time something like this happens it just reminds me what's important and not to take anything for granted.

I started on the star sports bulletin board as Bassbelly pretty much at the beginning. Hell I think I was on dial-up modem Mindspring. When it went to shit I got out and subscribed to Chiefs Planet and Chiefs Coalition. I stuck to Coalition till they folded without warning and came back to CP and started over.
