    It's not easy to post this but I think I owe it to my old friends from ESPN. My last check up didn't go well and it seems that I will very soon not be able to be here any more. Fact is I probably won't be able to do much of anything if the doctor is right. It's not like I'm really happy about what is happening to me but it is what life has dealt me. I do hope to read the Hoopla and post when I can but the day is coming when that will no longer be physically possible. I don't want anybody to feel sorry for me though, I had a great time posting with you on ESPN and on here (the new guys from the other sites, I wish I could be here longer to get to know you better and enjoy posting with you).

    At least I'll make it to my birthday next month...maybe Christmas if I'm lucky. Just depends on how fast this disease progresses. Anyway, if I can I'll try to read and post when I feel up to it. The pain has become more intense these last few weeks and I just don't seem to be energetic enough some days to anything more than read a few posts here and there.

    Hopefully I have made some of you smile or laugh at times as you have made me smile and laugh over the years. You're a great bunch of posters and I have enjoyed my time with you. Thank you.

    Dude, that's awful, really hope the doctor is wrong. Always loved reading your posts. God bless, and please take care. Hope to see you around. Really sad.

    Oh Kansas...you've been a huge part of this board. I hope you'll shock 'em all and prove you've got some good years left in you!

    I don't think I've interacted much with you, but I hope you find enjoyment in whatever you do post-Hoopla, whether it be reflecting on life, reconnecting/making amends with old friends/family, spending time with loved ones, trying new things etc.

    Good luck and wish you the best!

    Wishing Kansas Sooner the best of luck no matter what, a great poster, if this is truly the last post/thread, it's a sad day for the Hoopla. You will be truly missed.

    Oh man, what a blow.

    You're one of the best posters on this board. :(

    If you go, know that you will be greatly missed. I hope you stay around long enough to see the Royals win it all. The Tigers can win it next year.

    This is really sad news and you'll be in my prayers. I know a lot of us on Hoopla will be praying for a miracle. I wish you nothing but the best.
