Never stop loving that Kenny. If you see/talk to him, remind him he has a teleconference call Thursday at 10am with the Connecticut Sports Writers Alliance, which is giving him their Bob Casey Courage Award at their Gold Key dinner on April 17 the Aqua Turf Club in Southington CT.
I’ll email and call him tomorrow with the number to call.
