Several years ago I became ill and since then I have had numerous surgeries on my feet.  Well, last month required an amputation of my right foot...the pain and misery caused me to miss too many games the last few seasons.

I was able to personalize my prosthetic, as you can see below.  I am sure no one else has this logo on their prosthetic, so next time you see me at the Smitty, just yell out "Hey, Mike K.!"

The new foot is nice and all but can you run down a cheetah at full speed?

Hope Mike K becomes the next "Norm" at GW games (Cheers reference for the youngsters).  Every time we see him we'll scream "Mike K".  Friend since college I look forward to more than our 1 or 2 yearly games at Smitty together now that Mike's bionic.  True fan, Mike K.

Just found out that "we" made the WaPo on 4/22.  Mid way thru the article the GW Logo is referenced and links to this thread.  Pretty Cool.
