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.
