    Sportswriter Mike Celizic, who has written a number of stories about skating, wrote a very touching column today about his losing fight with cancer. Very touching, and some of his earlier columns about the diagnosis are definitely worth reading.

    Aww, that is so sad that he's dying. I've always enjoyed his columns. He writes about it all so eloquently.

    Words fail me, except for this...

    We've got to drop kick this damned disease into some place where it ceases to exist forever and ever!!

    I hope and pray he and his Family have the support they need for the next few weeks.

    :(

    Thanks for posting the link. What a touching column - I admire his strength in saying enough with the chemo, and deciding to enjoy the time he has left. And I also :rofl: at the part about his buddy bringing burgers and Corona into the hospital for him.

    Thanks for posting that link -- what a wonderful, terrible story. Mike Celizic is a great writer -- and god bless his friend for bringing him the contraband burger and beer for his birthday.
