I still lament his leaving Calgary, he was the only reason I listened to Fan960 in the morning. The new morning crew is horribad.

I don't have the ability to listen to the announcement at work, how's his battle going?

He's doing well. He had a baseball sized tumor removed along with his rectum. He has to wear a poo bag but only temporarily. He has started a foundation with his doctor and Doug Gilmour to help combat colon/rectal cancer through early detection. He looks healthy.

Oh man. That's a crazy story.

Despite his abrasive personality I also really enjoyed his show. Chris and I can't say Bob Cole to this day without adding "chicks I like."

Glad he's on the mend. Cancer is a motherfucker.
