Heys guys, this a VERY urgent non-football related note. My brother Bill, is in the hospital right now in very serious condition with a condition called Necrotizing Faciitus, also known as the "flesh eating bacteria". How the disease is contracted is a mystery and there are about 600 cases reported a year in the US. I'll leave a link to find out more about the disease in the Links column. All we can ask for now is your prayers for a full recovery, as the mortality rate for this is very high. Things move fast with NNFF ( as it is called) and the next 72 hours are crucial. I'll try to keep this updated but don't be afraid to call any one of the Kulls for info. Bill is still a strong young man and this disease has been beaten before, but it will be difficult and painful. Please remember him in your prayers. Thanks
Steve

This is a BILL update. I went to the hospital to visit him on Monday, and he was up and alert (for Bill, at least) From all that I have read about this thing he has, that is nothing short of a miracle. The doctors seem to think he is on the road to recovery, but there will be a few more weeks in hospital, and many months of rehab. Right now , because of the incisions on his arms and legs, he can't do anything for himself, but he will be moved to a regular floor soon.So if you visit him be prepared to be put to work. I want to thank all of you for your thoughts, emails and prayers, I believe it all helped.

Bill Update--- I saw him Saturday and he seems like he is getting stronger every day. But until he gets moved to the 6th floor we cannot say he is "out of the woods". He has a good support base of friends and family coming to see him, but he could always use another, stop on by. Or you can give him a call at 425-8000 ext# 2301....or dial 12301 as soon as the recording starts- it works for me. Keep on praying and Bill will lick this thing.

Oh, and we still have 100.00 up for grabs in the pool. Who would've thought all John D's points would have come from Kerry Collins, and not the Culpepper-Moss connection. Looks like he has a lock on the money (jinx,jinx,jinx), unless there is a Baltimore shutout coupled with a Baltimore TD (not FG) barrage, and then monkeys will fly out of my butt.
