The Emporer will be away for a while

Paul just informed me that he’s currently in the hospital with a very high blood sugar level due to stress.

Because of that, things will be a little slower than normal, especially with the Free Agency period starting Thursday.

I will do my best to post the big stories and signings while Paul’s away, but unfortunately I don’t have the time now to go to the approximately 60 or so websites that I did last week when Paul was in Vegas.

Let’s all wish Paul a speedy recovery.

Thanks for all of your efforts.


Best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery (I had a feeling you were headed for trouble when I saw the shot of you with Heidi Androl in Vegas).  smile

Oh, that’s not good at all. :( I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts, Paul!

And thanks for holding down the fort, Tony. I know I appreciate that the Korner is operating even in the Emperor’s absence.

Get well soon, Paul!  Most of us have been around long enough to know that no posts in 24 hrs is a bad thing, so get some rest, and let Tony handle things.

I hope you’re doing better and are out of the hospital soon.

I had a feeling you were headed for trouble when I saw the shot of you with Heidi Androl in Vegas

Oddly enough I had a very similar feeling. After a certain age, getting too close to women like that can only lead to trouble of one sort or another. smile

But, seriously, you need to alter some things in your life, Paul, while you still can. If you posted less often or you didn’t start posting at 5:00 in the morning every day, everyone here would understand. Best wishes for a speedy recovery – and, hopefully, a new approach to the rest of your (very long) life.

yikes! rest up Paul, and take good care.

Posted by Moose Moss on 06/29/10 at 04:05 PM ET


Get well soon Paul, us older and larger guys need to stick together.

Hey you guys, I heard from Paul and he asked me to update you.  He is undergoing tests and trying to get his blood level to normal, but is well enough to text me back!  So keep thinking good thoughts for him.  I passed along your good wishes.

I was afraid something was wrong when I saw the lack of posts.

Take care of yourself, Paul, and get well soon.

I hope you feel better soon, Paul!  And I echo everyone else here in saying that you should take all the time and relaxation you need to get well.

Thanks for filling in and for the update, Tony - I was very worried when I woke up this morning and realized that Paul hadn’t posted in so long without notice.

Posted by Sadie from Ann Arbor, MI on 06/29/10 at 08:52 PM ET


Get well soon Paul!
