Remembering Dan Pires

I am writing this because I was planning on looking up Dan in a month at Patriots Training Camp where I would tell him a few things but the news of his death this morning changed all that

I would tell him how much fun I had concocting that “Dan Pires Saved My Life” thread last summer knowing that he would fall right in tune with me and go along with the shtick w/o missing a beat because he knew how to have fun by making fun of himself

I would tell him how much I envied what he did as a sportswriter because I once wanted to be one and actually took a degree in Journalism but never followed that dream

I would tell him how much I enjoyed the kind of stories he wrote about things that gave us fans insights into players and coaches that were personalizing w/o being agenda driven

I would tell him how much I thought he might be holding back from posting on PatriotsPlanet and maybe not letting himself go as I just knew he had a devil’s twinkle in his eye just waiting to bust out by what he did reveal fleetingly at times

I would tell him he was a gentleman as well as a Man’s Gentle Man and his family should hope to know how lucky they were

I would tell him a cousin of his PMd me that he was looking for a story that Dan wrote and Googled up the “Dan Saved My Life” thread instead and wanted to know if it was true because:

“….Are you kidding....Family is always the last to know...Plz help me with my ballbusting power. If you would like to verify I'm his cuz if you see him just ask him if he has a cousin by the name of (blank) ...he'll probably deny it but what the heck.”

To which I replied:

“my thread was made partially in jest in that I too was busting on Dan....he did "save me" …….and helped "revive me”….(but) no actual mouth-to-mouth (or tongue) was applied.....he'll probably deny it but what the heck.”

[All this done just get to ask him if his cousin (blank) thought he was coming out of the closet or what during a family gathering sometime]

I would tell him how much we Pats fans loved that he confirmed what we thought we knew all along that Bill Polian was The Devil when he recounted him throwing a nutty in the Gillette pressbox that was not widely reported so we could then bust on Colts fans about it

I would tell him what’s a nice guy like him thinking by being a MFYankee fan

Finally I would tell him when we went our separate ways that day that “I’d be seeing him again” like I always tell everyone

and by writing this, I feel that even though I won’t see him next month, he’s heard what I have said to him today instead
