As most of you know one of our longest members and a great contributor every NFL season, Capt. N-R, has been fighting cancer. Just got a text from his girlfriend saying that he is going into hospice in South Carolina.

She has been texting me with updates for almost a year now. Nelson has been through a real tough struggle. It appears that the cancer has won.

Your prayers and good thoughts would be appreciated.

My situation is very serious. But I have not given up. I have improved a lot since middle of last week.

I am down 14 points with 5 minutes to go. So not looking good. But MickeyA, can u send Tom Brady to Quarterback my team now??? I need a huge rally.

It is tough. The cancer is winning. But the Falcons were leading 28-3 in the second half. They give out trophies after the game. Cancer has not won yet.

Capt,

My thoughts are with you and I hope you pull off the upset!! :-)

I always make it a point to read your NFL posts and factor your perspective into my handicapping.

I'm making a bet right not that I'm going to be reading your posts once again this NFL season.

Dave
