I wanted to add the last chapter to a great sports fan and wonderful husband, father and friend. Danny passed away August 16th after a terrible battle with cancer. Danny was very brave and fought hard to the end. Here is his obiturary so you can see what a terrific human he was and is, in my heart. He is the love of my life. I'm keeping Sunday Ticket just to see the season thru. With him overlooking them from the great beyond, I feel their chances are the best!
