    Unfunny Pizmo - missing the humour

    Don't know piz personally and am not sure if this will offend him or not as some people don't like this sort of thing. But I for one miss his witty snipes and his "Get in line guys" type of fatherly presence.

    Wishing and hoping for the best for you piz.

    Re: Pizmo - missing the humour

    I also don't know the man personally, although after a decade and a half (almost) of reading his posts on here, I feel like I do. I think you've helped me to laugh and not take myself too seriously, Piz. That is always a good thing, especially considering how screwed up the world can seem sometimes.

    Keep fighting the fight sir. Hope to see you back on the site soon.

    Piz, we need you back!! Hang in there, friend. We're behind you.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    That thread title scared me for a second...but until there's an actual obituary, we can always have hope.

    Hang in there.

    Re: Pizmo - missing the humour

    Pizmo made this thread light and fun for me, ever since I joined 12 years ago. And that is saying something, considering how the team had done during that time.
    Obviously something is seriously wrong, or Pizmo would not be absent for so long.
    Nothing in this World last forever. But I hope that Pizmo will be back, soon.
    Without his levity here, I become a lesser person - just another grumpy old man.

    He disappeared around Sept 20...made his pool picks on the week of Oct 25. That's just over a month ago.

    There's still hope. Pray for him, guys.

    Re: Pizmo - missing the humour

    I'm genuinely worried. How would we know one way or the other?

    When was the last time that the regular posters on this site got together for a game of tag football or a drink or a lunch. Maybe we ought to do that sometime.

    What's really hard is that Pizmo is all the way out in New Brunswick. Not sure if there's anyone here who lives in that neck of the woods.

    If anyone wants to email him, PM me and I'll give you the email address he registered with. I don't know if it will work or not.

    Re: Pizmo - missing the humour

    Yeah. He’s not the kind of guy who would choose not to be here. Been a fair while now. I’m a chronic worrier, and know it. But, yeah, I’m worried about him.

    In my eyes, this site sure ain’t the same without him.

    I've sent an email, folks, and asked for an update. If I get any replies, I'll let you know right away.

    I haven't seen anything posted on his FB page for months now. All the positive vibes and love sending his way.

    I can let you all know that he is still fighting and the fight has gotten tougher. I will get an confirm with him and his family about what they would like to share and get back to you! I am not sure it is my place to share, so I will wait until I get an OK to do so... I hope you all understand.

    I can tell you that it moves me to tears that for someone you have never met, only only met once, maybe two times that there is this outpouring of concern, well-wishes and positivity. THIS is why I love the Eskimos and the CFL... This.

    Been thinking about him and hoping that his health recovers.

    Exactly...... one big family and any update they want to give will be appreciated. I hope you let him know that we are missing him here.
