Once again I must apologize for my lack of activity on the boards, to those of you following the NFL topics, I do have my picks from the last few weeks, I'd say I cheated but once you see them you'll know the truth.

Anyways I've been a little distracted as of late and will likely continue to be for a short time. A couple of weeks ago my father was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer. His doctors are optimistic about his prognosis considering they had to try so hard to confirm the diagnosis. However, they won't know the full extend of its progression until they perform surgery on November 1st to remove it.

Needless to say I have taken some time off work and will be headed back to Pennsylvania to take care of my father, work has been gracious enough to give me the month off if need be so I'm hoping that as dad gets better I might take some of that free time and try to finish the site updates.

In the mean time I ask that your thoughts and prayers go out to my father, a truly great man who deserves a much longer life and hopefully thats something he'll get.

Thanks

Prayers and best wishes to your father and family Mick. You don't have to apologize when it comes to those things.

Well I'm back in Chicago so that can only mean one of two things, my father is alive and well and able to stand on his own two feet......or I've killed him and buried his body in the woods somewheres. Don't mind that shovel over there!


On a serious note thanks to all for the well wishes and prayers, dad came out of this fine and was really happy to see that so many people cared for him.
