We'll Be Missing You, Craney (SPAEK)



RIP Craney

If you're  a fan of the bolg, then you're a fan of a Crane Kicker. He was the creator of the "Cholly" series, brought the funnies to our Eagles Report Cards, was a guest judge in our Halloween Costume Contests (he bought Awesome Emma a trophy), and broke a billion faces on Twinker. And now he's gone. Possibly forever.

No, I mean, he's not dead in real life or anything. But his online persona, which entertained the crap out of me for years, due to circumstances we'll not get into (Hugh Douglas or Jeffrey Lurie are the suspects don't quote me on that but just saying) here, as this is a time for celebration and remembrance. Yes, remembrance of Crane's past. 

Am I proud that his last piece was monumental, and set a city ablaze? Not going to lie, kids, I am. SPAEK.

To send Craney off properly, I felt it necessary to re-work a song and video in his honor. If you'll indulge me a moment, or several:


Every post you make...
Every story you breakkkkk...
Every single twink
Every beer I drink, I'll be missing youuuuuu

Seems like yesterday we used to rock the bolg
I drew the paints, you locked the prose
So far from hangin on for karate poses
Crane-y-ous, they got to know that
Twitter ain't always what it seem to be (uh-uh)
Words can't express what you mean to me
Even though you're gone, we still a team
Through your Twink fans, I'll fulfill your dream (that's right)

In the future, can't wait to see
If you still tail gates with me
Reminisce some time, the workday they took my friend (uh-huh)
Try to black it out, but it plays again
When it's real, feelings hard to conceal
Can't imagine all the pain I feel
Give anything for TEAM SPAEK to be
I know you're still bolg life for real, C

Every bolg you post...
Every boom you roast...
Every Turbo Bird
Every SPAEK I heard, I'll be missing youuuuuu

It's kinda hard with you not around
Know you're in Jersey, smilin' down
Watchin' us while we crane for you
Everyday we crane for you
Till the day we tweet again
In my heart is where I'll keep you friend

Memories give me the strength I need to proceed
Strength I need to believe
My thoughts, Crane , I just can't define
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Us in the Z
Grading Birds O and D
Making fun of DG
Making hits iPhones they receive you on
Still can't believe you're gone
Give anything to hear half your SPAEK
I know you still livin' your life, dorkbeak

Every bolg you post...
Every boom you roast...
Every Turbo Bird
Every SPAEK I heard, I'll be missing youuuuuu
Every post you make...
Every story you breakkkkk...
Every single twink
Every beer I drink, I'll be missing youuuuuu
[MIKE MEECH (in full choir gown) (lol)]
Somebody tell me whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy…
Some glad morning
When this life is over
I know
I'll see CEEEEE KAAAAAAAYYYYYY

Every bolg you post...
Every boom you roast...

Every bolg you post...
Every boom you roast...

Every bolg you post...
Every boom you roast...

Every bolg you post...
Every boom you roast...

We miss you Crane

  3. Long time, first time. Quite a shame. Hopefully this is some type of Jean Grey/Phoenix thing and Mr. Kicker will consume a star and...well I've lost the metaphor, but thanks for the laughs CK and nice eulogy Z Dubs.


    P.S. Phillies suck. '86forLife.
