Victorious Lap: At long last!

I'm so happy right now.

I feel like all the time and effort I've put in to everything has finally paid off. It was all worth it. My toil, my struggle, my blood, sweat, and tears...they've all combined to produce this one perfect moment.

Dictionary.com defines "success" as "the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors." That about sums it up. This is the ultimate, the peak, the most favorable and prosperous thing that has ever happened to me.

I've been a fan since the early 90s, and it's been a long and winding road. There have been some notable roster changes along the way, but that's how the business works. It all culminates in this. Now every controversial decision has been validated. All our choices brought us here.

I always dreamed that I would live to see this day, but I don't know if I ever really BELIEVED it could happen.

Thank you for your support, everyone.

Thank you God, Jesus, Mohammed, and Owen Nolan.

We did it!
