1000 Cards for Frank 
Life is full of ups and downs, and Frank and Lisa Poteet have felt them all.
"The last five years, I mean you try to get ahead of that," started Lisa, who five years ago lost her 16-year-old daughter Kayla in a crash. "It’s the worst pain there is."
That hits hard, but for the Poteets the hits kept coming.
"My husband has esophageal cancer," continued Lisa, "It’s such an aggressive cancer."
That was a year ago, and the doctors gave Frank three to five years left to live. He even had surgery that removed the majority of his esophagus and part of his stomach, which sent Frank’s weight dropping fast. No matter what he’s done to keep his weight up little has worked, leaving him to wonder, “Have I got months to live, now? How do I prepare my family?”
"He said ‘I’m not afraid to die. I know I’ll be with Kayla. I don’t want to leave you all, I’m scared to leave you, but I know I’ll be with her,’" said Lisa.
For Lisa, it’s a struggle to see her husband, whom she calls her “rock,” wear down in this fight for his life.
"He just kept getting setbacks and setbacks," she explained, so she got an idea from her mother that might help keep Frank’s spirits high. "How about people sending cards to Frank."
It was going to be a simple gesture among family and close friends, but after a recent let down at the doctor’s office, “I decided to push it. I was going to name it ‘1000 Cards for Frank.’”
They have received about 20 cards so far. If you have the time, it would mean a lot to Frank and Lisa to read a nice uplifting card. 
If you’d like to send Frank a card you can mail it to:
Frank Poteet

The San Diego Padres: Cub-Busters

Pop quiz, hotshot. You’re the San Diego Padres during the first winning season in franchise history. 

It also happens to be 1984, the year that Ghostbusters, the greatest movie ever released, comes out. What do you do? What do you do? 

Why, naturally you write a song called, “Cub-busters” with the hilarious call and response of, “The Padres are? Ball busters!” (Jump ahead to 1:13 for the song). 

Oh, the 1980s.
