I’ll be up on the MSU Campus tomorrow morning for the walk to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Yes, I’ll be rubbing elbows with Coach Dantonio who’s the honorary chair of the event and I’ll be hurling sharp stares his way & will be looking for the vein on this forehead to throb, as if sensing my presence.
Come out and join me – I’ll be with team “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and I’ll be signing copies of Hail to the Victors 2010 in a 1905-ish fountain pen.
If you don’t understand the fuss over juvenile diabetes, this video is a good primer on what these kids and parents go through every morning, day, night (and late night).
