This is a must read for anyone who will miss Chuck Swirsky. It is his final blog, a farewell to fans.

Swirsky has been a true ambassador of the game for us, and it is nice to see him leave with such respect and class.

im sure he feels awful..but hes doing it for his family..he would have been so animated seeing Bosh and O'neal together..but i guess he has Derrick Rose in Chicago..going to miss u SWIRKS..cant wait for the raptors to dominate his team and hearing him say "ONIONS BABY ONIONS!!" " GET OUT THE SALAMI AND CHEESE THIS GAME IS OVER ..and quietly saying raptors win raptors win" :D

I wonder when Raps and Bulls play eachother if he gets caught up and forgets who he's supposed to be a homer for. I could just see him ripping Rose if Jose is taking him to school and not realizing it haha.

Okay, I actually emailed him at his new address thanking him and wishing him good luck in the future. I got a reply back in just a couple of hours. The guy really does put the fans before everything.

That's cool^, what was his reply?

It would be awesome if he accidentally cheered for the Raps while the Bull plays against the Raps.

Cabbie is way to much of a joker. They need someone who has a great voice for the play by play. Cabbie is a good host but would make for a terrible guy to pair up with rautins or armstrong.

Come on Tim McCalleff (spelling probably off) from the score.

It's sad to see him go but he has his priorities straight as a family man. I will definitely miss him. I remember pre-blog I would check the Raps website once or twice a week to see if he posted another CCI. Living in the states, there is absolutely no coverage at all on the Raps and it was always informative and interesting to read his articles on the team. Wish him all the best in Chicago and Im looking forward to his commentary when I watch the Bulls play next season on League Pass.

i found him corny as hell at times, but he kinda grows on you after a while. his passion for the game and love of the city will be missed.
