Still in shock after receiving the horrible news of longtime umpire and friend Eric Cooper passing away this morning.

A huge Notre Dame fan, Coop & I had ongoing friendly banter between the Irish and the Ducks, especially this time of year.

Oh how I’m going to miss that.

My deepest sympathies to Eric’s family and friends, there are so many!

Rest In Peace #56, you will be missed.

I am heartbroken to learn of the loss of Eric Cooper. As an Iowan at the highest level of his field, he was a piece of our collective pride. In all my interactions with him, “Coop” was always kind, engaging and accommodating. Keith Murphy and I just ran into Coop’s longtime friend and colleague, Tim McClelland, at the Iowa State Fair. When we asked about Coop, Tim got a twinkle in his eye and said “He’s doing fine. He’s the main reason I watch anymore.” We’d looked forward to having them together on our show again. God’s peace to Coop’s friends and family.

Please be very careful after surgery. Make certain that the hospital uses air cuffs on your legs (these stimulate blood flow). As soon as you can you must get active. I acquired Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) which generated clots which went into my lungs. I was extremely fortunate that the pain in my leg after discharge was so excruciating that I went back to the ER. They brought a doc in on a Saturday to “root” out the clots in my lungs or Pulmonary Embolisms. My favorite uncle died of a PE subsequent to breaking a leg only a few years before me. I am now on a lifetime of bloodthinners and compression stockings
