Steve Garvey diagnosed with cancer

Former Dodgers first base great Steve Garvey, a 10-time All-Star and 1974 National League MVP, is battling prostate cancer.

Garvey said that his prostate was removed at UCLA Medical Center in October after his cancer was diagnosed the previous month and that he now hopes to devote a considerable amount of his time to prostate cancer awareness.

I understand the appeal of the story but posting it twice is a bit much.

I... don't. Why post it at all?

His cancer should be taken away.

Seriously.

Guess he's a clubhouse cancer after all.

(Feel better, Steve.)

RMc, congratulations for hitting the right note -- while using a tried and true BBTF meme.

Anyone here go through this? My father just had the surgery last week.

Yes, last year, Joe. Email offline if you want to talk, my address should be up to date. So much depends on the path report, tho, and I'm guessing it's not out yet.

Do I finally get a Primey, boss?

#11 We should plan to line up the Primeys with the Oscars. Consider my post #3 as a nomination for best use of a BBTF meme.
