Gwynn: Things Looking Promising For Gwynn

I constructed that confusing headline on purpose so that I would have an easy introduction for this post. This is a post about Tony Gwynn's recent operation to remove a cancerous tumor from his mouth. Did the operation leave Tony Gwynn speaking in the third person? No, of course not, that wouldn't make any sense. Tony has a brother named Chris, and Chris talked about Tony's recovery. Larry Stone:

"He's doing great,'' Chris said. "I talked to him yesterday for about an hour. He's at home. The surgery was 14 hours, and they got all the work done, all the cancer out. Everybody I've talked to who's seen him says he looks normal. I've talked to him, and he sounds like before he went in. He's ticked off because his Aztecs are 1-3. So he's obviously healthy."

All good signs, obviously, and while it's still too early to say for absolute certain that Tony will come out of this just fine, it's looking like Tony will come out of this just fine. The world just lost one beloved Hall of Famer, so it's fantastic news to hear that another is on the mend from a frightening situation.

"The surgery was 14 hours." Just making sure you caught that. Think about how long 14 hours is. Now double that because you probably didn't think about it enough.
