First of all, I would like to wish Simon the happiest of happy birthdays! May you find happiness in whatever path you choose to take. Your playing career might be over, but you’ll remain my most favorite player forever. All the joy and luck you can handle!
I couldn’t miss the once-in-4-years opportunity and post my wishes on the actual date of Simon’s b-day so I turned to this website after over 2 years of absence. Yes, it has been that long. Sadly, the adult-ish way of life (full-time job and such) had me busier and busier until it became practically impossible for me to give this website the attention it deserved. I know this sort of message was long overdue and I apologize for this.
I founded SG.com 5 years ago and gave it my best for about 3 years. It wasn’t the biggest hit of the interwebs but it definitely had its great moments, the “Get Well Soon” project (and Simon’s letter of thanks), the time Simon won the Stanley Cup, or when the website was cited and linked to by most (if not all) writers in Philadelphia (that was quite a mayhem that day ) – thanks to this article.
It was a wonderful ride. It was difficult and demanding sometimes, but mostly it was great fun and pleasure to be able to bring you news and updates about such a great player and overall amazing guy Simon Gagne is. I will keep the website up and available for browsing simply because I am a sentimental person and can’t just delete it completely. But as you probably guessed, no more updates (unless something insanely important happens).
So yes, this is it. I would like to thank all the people who made this website possible – John, Myriam, Audrey, Veronique, and anyone who helped me and supported me in this little endevour of mine. And of course, thank you, dear visitors! Even if it was just one person visiting per day, you made it all worth it.
THANK YOU!!! :-*
