Get Well Soon

Some DTW thoughts go out to a couple friends of the blog who will find themselves on the disabled list for a little while.

Earlier today Big Al of The Wayne Fontes Experience shared that he’ll be undergoing back surgery tomorrow. His description paints a picture that ain’t so pretty:

In other words, my doctor will be cutting out a pie shaped piece of my spinal column, then correct my spinal deformity while on the operating table by bending my spine straight. He’ll then hold my rebuilt spine together with rods and screws.  It’s expected I’ll be on the operating table for 8-10 hours.

Later in the day we found that Dan Dickerson, Tigers radio play-by-play man extraordinaire managed to mess up both of his knees while jogging. John Keating is the second man in the booth for the time being, but I’d imagine someone else will be tagged for the gig.

Here is hoping for a speedy recovery for both of these gentlemen.
