Friday's Dump & Chase: We Now Return To Our Regularly Scheduled Programming

Frederick Breedon

Good morning, everybody! I just want to thank everyone for their kind words for Dirk yesterday. The praise is well-deserved, and a testament to the community he's built here. Jon and I have HUGE shoes to fill, but we're going to do our best to keep things rolling. We'll have more to tell you soon, but if you have a question, comment, or even, God forbid, a complaint, you can reach us at otfeditor@gmail.com or on Twitter @OnTheForecheck. Thanks!
