I've been a fan of Giant Bomb since before it was even thought of. I used to binge watch On The Spot (the seminal Rich Gallup hosted live show on Gamespot), desperately trying to get my aching AOL dsl to watch it live. I loved the personalities and now, about 12 years later, I realise that I've grown up with these people. I started watching on the spot when I was 12 and I'm 24 now. Jeff, Ryan, Vinny, Brad, Drew, Alex and more recently Rorie, Dan and Jason - I've gotten to know these people (in a weird way) without them knowing me at all.
This is a video game website but my god over the years it has been so much more. So many hard times, so many good times, so much travelling, so much change... most of it (and I mean a large majority) of it done with a Bombcast in my ear or a quick look in the background.
Having something there so light, so funny - like a group of freinds getting together just to a have a laugh - can change your mood when times are tough, can brighten those duller days, can break out a laugh on those tired journeys and dark nights.
I was just thinking about all this having resubbed, realising that I will probably be resubbing for my entire life (or as long as they'll allow me). And so to the whole Giant Bomb crew I just want to extend my thanks... something you've recieved from so many fans I'm sure and so many more to come...but this is my thanks, a fan whose been with you from the beginning, whose been helped along in innumerable ways by your constant stream of hilarity.
