Oklahoma City. We had a great full season last. I am sincerely grateful to you for your kindness and a warm welcome from the first day. I have a great love for everyone in the club, for the fans and, most importantly, for the guys who released this dog day after day. I will never forget my 15th season, Paul wrote on his Instagram page.
