In case you missed it, Rob Neyer has left ESPN after 15 years. I’ve enjoyed and admired Rob’s work more than I can say, and I’m sorry to see him go.
Rob has been a great supporter of Ducksnorts, from letting me ask him a bunch of questions in 2008 to bringing my humble blog into ESPN’s SweetSpot network this past season.
Thanks, Rob, for everything. It has been an honor and a pleasure. I wish you well in whatever the future may hold.
