Semi-OT: Coach Ferrigno made a great memory for a friends daughter
Yesterday, my friend, an Ohio alum, said it was a shame that Hoke (not Urbs) had to be the one to do the classy thing for the beating "Michigan" cancer child. This staff and the whole athletic department seem to project a very classy, caring, family persona. I work at Cincinnati Children's hospital and stuff like this is just awesome. It made my day to talk to a patient about wrestling on Monday. He was upset that we do not get the USA network and he could not watch RAW.
cincinnati childrens is supposed to be awesome.
and a great story from the OP!
Great story. Lots of prayers and good luck your friends' daughter.
Amazing story. It's no wonder that everyone loves this staff.
Our bold and fearless leader Brady Hoke put it best when he said:
"This is Michigan, fergodsakes."
One more reason why I love my alma mater.
Name, I can't help the fact that I think of the HULK
Gestures like this are another example of why the culture of Michigan football, and really Michigan athletics, is an awesome culture in that it gives back to the community in so many wonderful ways. Hopefully, this is an experience that this child will be able to tell their children about. Many kudos to Coach Ferrigno, and thanks to the OP for sharing this.
This is a great story, thanks for sharing.
Big thumbs up to Coach Ferrigno and this staff as a whole. One of my favorite quotes from Brady's first press conference was this "Character wins in life and character wins on the football field".
I wish your friend and his family the best. I can honestly say that they are in very capable hands!
did you neg the OP for this story?
I remember going down to the stadium my first couple years at school and running the stairs as a workout. Not only was it unlocked, there weren't any fences. The times, they are a-changin'.
And yeah, me working out, definitely have changed.
Now I've been reduced to running the steps outside on the east side. A pale imitation. I'd pay for a pass to work out inside. Dave?
thanks for sharing!
Amazing story. Always nice to hear how genuinely nice our coaching staff is
Within the last year or so, my son took his high school age daughter to Ann Arbor for a soccer camp or practice to be held somewhere in the Michigan sports complex. Not knowing exactly where the facility being used was located, my son asked a man walking near one of sports building how to get to the location. The man told my son and granddaughter to follow him. It took at least a few minutes to get to the building in question, and the man had to open at least one door with a key en route. The man turned out to be Coach Borges, and I was impressed by his random act of kindness.
