This Sunday is Jim "Mad Dog" Mandich Day at the stadium formally known as Joe Robbie, as we all know. A fan favorite goes into the Ring of Honor, a check will be presented to U of M's Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the DCC riders will be part of the pre-game ceremony. All that adds up to one hell of a day,...and we also have a football to watch as well !
Our tailgate continued to grow in popularity, and ( as always ) all are welcome. This week, you'll be hard pressed to find anything other than Heineken in a Deep Enders cooler. It was Mad Dog's beer of choice, and the word is out. You bring beer,...you bring some "green lizards" as he use to call them. Feel free to stop by the E-12 and say "hi". I myself will only be in attendance until 11:15. I am truly humbled by the fact that I will be taking part in the on-field pre-game ceremony.
When I take the field On Jim Mandich Day, I want one thing to be crystal clear. I do so with the memory of my loved one and the loved ones of so many others with me. All those who helped me in this cause, you too take the field with me. You are with me and I thank you.
