As members of the media gathered around his hospital bedside, Race Bannon struggled to sit up and put on a brave face. The former Hardcore Husky columnist has not been to the site since early March, when doctors diagnosed him with having a severe case of the crud.
In an act to honor Bannon, Hardcore Husky created a new message board called the Race Bannon Memorial Farks Board. "I'm deeply honored by this gesture," Bannon said. "Okay, not really. But I hope they're showing my best work."
Both of Bannon's dads had the crud this past winter, leading doctors to speculate that was how the columnist succumbed to it as well.
