The only thing missing was Hawk singing "Turn out the lights...." I started to write a post about my Open Outcry days but I've decided against it. I made my peace with the old way almost 10 years ago now. I'll just say it was the greatest place to work ever and I wouldn't trade a day of it. It was "our thing." I'll remember my floor days for the characters and the experiences. When I look back, I see us all at the front lines of every significant historical event from Continental Illinois to Sept. 11. I view history through the "lens" of the Pit. It was awesome, you should have been there.
