I gotta say I feel so terrible I am just learning of his passing now. When exactly did this happen boogerlips?
I had the honor and pleasure of having dinner with Karl on several occasions. Every time he was in the Delaware area (once a month or so) we would meet up for dinner at either Ruby Tuesdays or his favorite a Chinese Buffet. We did this for a year or so at least and then something happened and he did not make it down my way much anymore. I always told him I would come drive up to see him and take him out but sadly I never got the chance. Every time I got to see Karl we would talk baseball and whatifsports for hours....but as the friendship progressed I noticed we talked much more about life in general and he always tried to give him good advice on my life and any kind of situations I would be in (work related, female problems, ect.) I always felt like I was hanging out with a grandfather type figure when I was with him.
Karl was one of the first people to befriend me on here. Anyone that played this game in the 2005-2007 era might know why someone would be relucant to meet up with me, as everyone on here thought my elevator didn't go all the way to the top and I had a couple of screws loose. Looking back I probably did, but Karl accepted me for who I am. Hindsight is always 20/20 I guess but I feel really terrible about not keeping in touch with him more towards the end of his life. Karl left a very positive impact on my life and I am proud to say he was my friend. I'm getting a bit teary eyed now. R.IP. buddy.
I haven't played this game in quite some time but any league that is a tribute to him I will sign up for.
