    Ron Smiley, Section 116, Row J, seats 19-20 had a massive heart attack Friday April 12th about 1:20 PM at work. He was sent to Memorial Herman and underwent a quadruple bypass at 3:30 PM. He has made it through surgery and is resting as we speak. He tailgates in the Orange Lot, had his season tickets since day 1. Just wanted to let you all know...... 55 years young and hit him like a ton of bricks. :logo:

    If he doesn't mind a Catholic including him in a daily rosary I'll be happy to pray for him.

    Update, Ron is doing well, he just got moved from ICU to a regular room Friday. He is talking, smiling (no pun intended), and ate real food for the first time today. He has lost 13 pounds in a week and said he needs tailgating to put it back on! He is a trooper....... looking forward to August! Thanks for all of the prayers, you guys (and girls) are great! You all need to say hello to him in the BULLPEN this season!:texan:
