Dear readers of Fang Faction, The time has come for me to leave the blog. I had a great time offering opinions on a variety of issues involving the Nashville Predators as well as updating all of you on the NHL standings and interesting stories around the league. My favorite memories on the blog are recording the podcasts with Fang Finger and Ray Harris. We had a great time discussing the Preds and talking to guests on the show. Hearing other opinions and discussing them was always exciting. I also enjoyed being at development camp last year and this year, seeing the prospects and analyzing their abilities. Conducting player interviews during the camps stretched me a little out of my comfort zone as I was always the youngest media member in the room, but it always turned out to be one of my favorite Predators events. I originally joined Fang Faction by responding to a tweet by Fang Finger asking for another writer on the blog. The previous season I had started my own Preds blog called Music City Mindset (RIP) but no longer had time to operate my own blog. It was a great opportunity, and I can say without question that I'm glad I took that opportunity.  I am now set to attend The University of Tennessee-Knoxville pursuing a major in Public Relations. I will continue to talk Preds on my personal Twitter account (@RyanTShannon) and occasionally on my new personal blog. I trust that you will continue to follow Fang Faction. It's a one-of-a-kind site where you can get Preds and Admirals news from great people and knowledgeable sources.  So, farewell Fang Faction. It was real, and it was fun. And it was real fun. Ryan Shannon
