The video gave me chills.
I'm not the biggest PK fan but you can't help but love and respect the guy.
He's our guy and he will be missed.

Players come and go, but Paul is one whose activities here will never be forgotten.

Perfect and fitting for him.

The more I think about it, the more it makes me sad that in a few days we're never going to have the pleasure of watching him play the game.

Big Frank was always my favorite player as a kid, and it hurt to see him go, but this one is going to have a different feeling altogether. Paulie came about as I really became a hard core fan, and each year that he was here, he endeared himself a little more to me.

My girlfriend keeps giving me grief that I'm going to shed a tear on Saturday, but the more I think about it, she might be right.

Thanks for the memories.

Where can I find on the net the current commercial showing a kid imagining he is Paul? Im getting real sentimental now and trying to save things about Paul.

The Sox should hand out PK (Paulie Kleenex) for Saturday. God knows I'm going to need it!
