Having lived in the US since 2000 I obviously didn't get to watch much of his TV work with the Raptors but I have thoroughly enjoyed his work with the Raptors. I've been a regular reader of his blog CCI(Chuck Checks In) which made a regular appearance on Raptors.com. Definitely listened to as much of his radio show as possible. His fan base as a play by play was as big if not bigger then pretty much any Raptor ever.Definitely didn't see this departure coming. "Chuck the Canuck" even got his Canadian citizenship last year. Good luck in the future endeavors.
