I can’t stand him as an announcer or analyst, but having lost my father to cancer…. I wish him the best of luck and a full recovery.

My uncle passed in 2000 to colon cancer. I might not like him as an announcer, but I would be remiss if I didn’t say that I hope he bounces back and makes a full recovery.

I am definitely not a fan of his, but hoping he has a full and quick recovery.  surprised

Cancer sucks. Get better and stop announcing.

I am praying for you.  As information, my mother survived colon cancer and went on to live more than 50 years afterward.

I just hope it’s subtle colon cancer.

As much as I dislike Eddie as a color commentator, I’m sure he’s a nice person; I hope they caught it early enough and were able to remove enough of the cells to stop it from coming back.

I don’t care who you are, what organization you represent, or what you say about the team I cheer for: *#$%@& Cancer.

I like Eddie. Does a good job…. Years ago I saw a study that showed 7 out of 10 people that eat processed meats get colon cancer and I stopped then eating hotdogs, ham, pastrami and corn beef. Most of the illnesses people get is from the chemicals, salt and sugars added to the synthetic stuff they sell as food.  Do yourself and your family a favor and stop eating it.
