Wow. I’m more sick to my stomach than I expected to be. Hey, everyone, let’s give gifts and praise to the man who stuck thorns in our sides for nearly two decades? Ugh. I’m all for respect, and I respect his work. I do. I wish him well in love and life and hope the best for him and his family going forward. I appreciate him relishing in being our villan. But, there is no way I’d pony up even a penny on a gift for Chipper. I hate every second of this. Every second.
