GET WELL SOON, COACH BANNY



John Banaszak is known to most of you as a three-time Super Bowl Champion with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but to me he'll always be "Coach" or "Banny". During my years as a second baseman at Washington & Jefferson College in the late '90s, Banaszak was actually my baseball coach. We won a lot of games and had a lot of laughs along the way. It was a fantastic experience.



So it hit a little close to home when I read moments ago that Coach Banny, currently an assistant football coach at Robert Morris, was in critical but stable condition at Allegheny General Hospital due to multiple aneurysms. According to the KDKA report, he's currently in intensive care.

My thoughts and prayers are with Coach and his family and I wish him a speedy recovery. Here's keeping our fingers crossed for some good news.

This sounds encouraging. Also sounds like Banaszak owes Mark Mason a lunch.
