In case some of you don't know, the Aeros are losing both Pat Armstrong and Scott Henninger this summer. They both worked in communications.
Pat took a job with a new CHL team in Missouri, and Scott is moving back home (up Nort'). Both worked for the Aeros for two years and will be missed.
Theirs is a thankless job and one that is always under the proverbial microscope. It's almost like working in a fish bowl as everyone gets to see what kind of work you do. Rarely do you get an email to thank you for your work, and more often than not the only feedback you get is negative. Understanding that and dealing with it maturely are the basics of working in PR/Media relations.
Officially, I would like to thank them both for all their help, especially for moving me down press row when nachos and other belly-washer food was being thrown down from idiot kids in the suite above Section 108.
I got a chance to say goodbye to Scott earlier this week and bought him lunch at Little Bigs (great sliders, by the way.) Pat kind of left in a hurry and never said adios. If you are reading this, then I wish you the best in your new endeavor.
In closing, I would like to post a link to a story one of his new Missouri beat writers wrote about him. Five questions with/for Pat Armstrong, I think it is called. I think we should send Pat a list of five questions just for fun. Any suggestions?
