Well after 13 years of living in Romania I am coming back to America. In 1996 I left California to do some mission/humanitarian work in a country still feeling the strong hold of communism. It was a strange land for me. Everything was foreign; language, culture and even sport. The only thing that you could ever see was
football soccer and so I was forced to love a new sport.
In the early years, being internet-less, I longed for news on how the Angels were doing. Once every 6 months I'd cross the border and make it to Hungary where I'd splurge and buy a USA TODAY just so I could see the standings and box scores. It was weird not knowing who any of the players were.
As the years went by, Romania joined the 21st century and I got myself non-stop access to the net. (I know that sounds funny but, well... it took forever.) Soon after I discovered Halosheaven, the best thing since sliced cheese, and joined the family. I was revived!
And now I'm packing up my bags and getting ready to head home. Tuesday, Mrs.Stuck in Romania and I will fly to our new home... Colorado Springs... Wednesday through Sunday the Bee's will be in town and I'll catch my first games in a long long time... I'll try to get some picts.
I'm looking forward to actually being able to see our Angels play live on TV, instead of watching Gameday and following the game threads wondering what is really happening.
Anyway, I just wanted to thank the whole Halosheaven community for getting me back in the game. Being so far away, you made me feel like I was close to home. Now I just gotta figure out what all these new stats are.
Thanks again Halosheaven!
