This sucks. When Patrick joined the Bombcast I disliked his voice and what he brought to the podcast, but enjoyed his writing. After a month or so I got use to his voice and began to enjoy his different taste in games from the other guys. By the time he started Bombing the AM he was my favorite regular. Sigh.
Best of luck Patrick. I'll happily follow you wherever you land if it's something public-facing. Thanks for all the writing/etc, and especially for sticking your neck out for people that need it.
