Michael Wilbon, a good friend, suffered a mild heart attack today. He suffered chest pains around 3 a.m. Monday morning while at his second home in Scottsdale, Az. Thankfully, his wife rushed him to a local hospital. Doctors found minor blockage and conducted an angioplasty to clear things out. He’s doing okay now, he told me tonight from the hospital.
I called him simply to leave a message, but he answered the telephone. “Do I have to cuss you out for answering the phone?” I said.
He started laughing.
“Now, stop laughing!” I added.
“I’m feeling good,” he said. “Thanks for calling. I really appreciate it.”
You may know Michael from ESPN or the Washington Post.
Tonight, I am telling you he’s just a good friend – a long time colleague in the struggle – who is in my prayers.
