Ernie Johnson

Ernie Johnson is TBS’ first-team baseball guy, but he’s been absent from this postseason due to his son’s illness.  Today’s USA Today has a story detailing what Johnson and his family are dealing with.  It’s heart-aching stuff.

Keep a thought in your heart for Johnson and his family.

    In biblical terms (which is most appropriate considering his strong Christian faith) Johnson’s life of late has been almost Job-like…..with his own fight against cancer as well as the various illnesses and malaise’ his family has endured. Yet, he continues to be a man of extreme kindness and integrity through it all. His is a character many men should seek to emulate.

    I’ve always like Ernie, he does a nice job and is easy to listen to.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to he and his family.

    Wow, I never knew much about Ernie Johnson as a person, but this story has opened my eyes in a big way. I have a new-found respect and admiration for him now. God bless you, Ernie, and I hope your family makes it through this extremely rough time.
