LOL. If the Pats win, you need to get on a train, boss.

Yeah the playoff games aren't doing much for me football fix wise. I have made the transition to college hoops.

I appreciate you sharing this with us Fresh. All these decisions are yours to make and after many years of this you know your body better than your doctors. I am praying every night for strength for you guys. Keep your head up brother.

It won't.

Such sad news. Fresh did great though. Like he said, we (and his family) got him for an extra 5+ years.

RIP Mike.

I mean this in the best way possible. Mike was the toughest son of a bitch I've had the pleasure of knowing (but never meeting). When you can touch people you've never met, you've had a good life. Mike, thanks for showing us strength, courage and a tremendous desire to love under the most terrible conditions. I hope when my time comes that I am half the man you showed to us. RIP Brother !

"The Fresh is gonna kick this thing right in the ass"

And he did so for five years. Now he can rest in peace. I will miss your words every day

Hey Guys. How is everyone?

There have been a few times over the last couple of months I had Mike pop into my head. When it happened about an hour ago, I checked to see the last time Mike was active on PhilaPhans. When I saw the date, I shuddered because I knew.

So the 1st thing I did was come here to scour the site for any news and obviously, this is what I've found. My worst fear confirmed and I am profoundly sad to know what has happened.

Mike was so brave, so strong and so positive about his fight that he gave you the feeling he would beat it, even though reality of what he faced was so dire knowing the numbers. He was always so brutally honest about what he was going through, so forthcoming, it inspired both admiration and incredible dread at what he was facing.

This thread is a truly harrowing read. In some way, I imagine it was cathartic for him, but for the reader? It's 5+ years of the most inspirational, heartbreaking, scary and even funny at times dialogue. At times, you find yourself with your head in your hands wondering how he endured. But he did, with grace, dignity and a huge fighter's heart.

RIP Mike.

My condolences and best wishes to his wife and family for their loss.

- ron
