Our commitment to him is to continue to execute his vision of bringing a winning organization to Portland. We ask that all of you keep him in your thoughts and prayers at this time. He certainly is in ours. Paul, we know you're watching this ballgame tonight. And we're thinking about you and praying for you and we know you're going to beat this thing again." ---------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
