On this Friday, I would like to showcase a man who truly exhibits fearlessness - a man who has more poise and grace at almost 92 years of age than I can ever hope for. If you live in the Detroit area, then you certainly know of Ernie Harwell. He was the Detroit Tigers announcer for many years and a national announcer as well. He also has been diagnosed with incurable cancer. Even if you don't live here, you may still know of Ernie (especially if you are a baseball fan). And although I didn't grow up here and wasn't really a Tigers fan (well sort of a Tigers fan because Magnum PI always wore their cap!), it didn't take me long after I moved here to realize what this man means to the city and humankind in general. He addressed the fans on Wednesday and I wanted to share it with you here. Don't worry - it's not too much of a tear-jerker; it's more of a celebration of a wonderful life!
