Like he has so many times before in his copy, one line from Cam Cole left our jaws dropped.
“Since someone spilled the beans: My last day at Postmedia is Dec. 16. Man, 41 years went fast,” Cam announced on Twitter.
With that, the tributes poured in.
Cam Cole is the guy every sports fan wants to read. He’s the guy every sports writer wants to be. He can outshoot you on the golf course and then outdrink you at the bar. And that’s after writing the 2,500 words everybody will be talking about at the rink the next morning. He’s got a great family too.
Actually, we should hate this guy.
But we don’t. We love Cam Cole.
If Bob McKenzie is the Godfather, Cam Cole is The Legend. That he’s leaving Postmedia on his own terms only adds to that legend.
Have a beer tonight for Cam. Then have ten more for the rest of us who aren’t sure when we’ll get to read Cam Cole again.
It was 41 years of excellence. What a run.
