Put him in your Prayers

6 posts in this topic

Vikings starting defensive end, Kenechi Udeze, is fighting leukemia.

Udeze’s doctors are still trying to determine what grade of leukemia he is dealing with.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS was the first to report the diagnosis, which has hit his Vikings teammates hard. He is still undergoing tests and it could be several weeks before the severity of the cancer is known.

Udeze is a former No. 1 draft pick out of southern California. Last year he played in all 16 games with 53 tackles – 33 of them were solo grabs.

Leukemia is a cancer of the blood that starts in the bone marrow.

Udeze's agent, Ethan Lock, would not comment on the diagnosis.

That's really some sad news. My dad passed away at the age of 50 from Leukemia and I learned the hard way it is a very tough illness to deal with. There are, of course, different "kinds" of Leukemia so hopefully his will be one that is easily treated. He will be in my prayers as well.

Wow, I had heard something with a Vikes player. That's horrible, don't like to hear about cancer in anyone. At least he's in MN and has great med care. Here's to hoping he comes through great.

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.

      Even in the metro the little bit of snow pack is insulating the ice pretty well so far. I've been out 3 days in a row and haven't noticed any significant melting. The forecasted rain for the next few days will probably change things a little.
