Joe's Final Comments after completing his 30 park journey:
Greetings - I would like to share with you a poem of sorts which was read at Tip O'Neill's funeral by his son.
I guess my point is that if you have something you really want to do, don't put it off. Life is short, time flies, etc. This has really been a growing experience for me and what started out as a lark became very meaningful. Would I do it again? NOT ON YOUR LIFE! Am I glad I did it? ABSOLUTELY! I've appreciated more than I can express all the e-mails from all over the country supporting what I thought was something in which nobody else would be interested. Many people at the various stadiums told me they hoped to do the same some time. Most people asked which was the best stadium so far. Some asked which was the worst. All were deeply interested. That is what surprised me the most.
I'm going to be starting a travel newsletter of sorts. I haven't decided exactly how I will do it but if you would like to be included in the email list, please respond.
Thanks to all for giving me someone with whom to share my experiences. Now, let's see, how many National Hockey League arenas are there?
P.S. Thanks to all who donated to the Jarred Williams Fund. This isn't just fluff. I really mean it. You feel much better when doing a good deed.
