I have not posted in a long time. Hello to all those who remember me. To give you an update on what happened to me, after attending the last home game against Hiram at Wabash's old Little Giant stadium, on November 9, 2019, I suffered a stroke 5 days later. I was in the hospital for 3 days and watched the Monon Bell game from my hospital bed. Then I was spent about a month doing out-patient rehabilitation. I have been home since early December and managed to go see a few Wabash basketball games last January and February. Without the my loving wife and a few close friends I don't where I would be right now.  I am still affected by my stroke. I have weak eyesight, a limp, weak hands and a slurred voice. But I am thankful that my mind is as strong as ever and finding new hobbies to keep me busy. One thing I have started is my own blog called "Watching Wabash's North Coast and Beyond which will cover Wabash, the North Coast Conference, and any Division III sports news I hear about. Obviously right now with no sports happening I am relying on my vast knowledge of Wabash history, my 10 year career as a Wabash football manager (YES, 10 YEARS!) starting in 1970 when I was 13 years old, and following Wabash sports for 51 years. I am also full of anecdotes from my career and Wabash history.

Please visit my site anytime you wish at somelittlegiant.simplesite.com and leave comments to how much you care for it.  A close friend of mine has been urging me to write a book on my knowledge and funny stories I have to share about being around Wabash sports. What kind of reaction people have to this blog will determine if I write the book. I am just an amateur writer, so take it easy on me.

As I always say, Just as Wabash Always Fights!, I have adopted this slogan as my life motto as well. Take care everyone.

I'm very sorry to hear about your stroke. I know that creates an uphill battle. Thank you for this post and way to go on keeping the fighting spirit. Your story is inspiring and could very well help others during the unsettling times of this pandemic. It's very easy for people to feel sorry for themselves, but not after reading your words. Way to go in carrying on the fight and thank you for the inspiring post. Humility is tested during successful times. Character is revealed in challenging times. You represent Wabash well!
