Tom’s message: “Good morning guys. I’ll get to the point right away. I’m retiring… for good. I know the process was a pretty big deal last time so when I woke up this morning I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first. I won’t be long winded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay and I used mine up last year so I really thank you guys so much to every single one of you for supporting me. My family, my friends, teammates, my competitors… I could go on forever, there’s too many. Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing. Love you all.”
