    HUGE THANK YOU TO COACH GREG MCDERMOTT!

    I just wanted to send out a public Thank You to Coach. Like I said before, I am helping out with an Art Auction to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (info below). As part of the auction, I have kinda been gathering some local celebrity art. In the past I had seen coaches draw up plays on a canvas then sign it and they normally go for pretty big bucks. Anyhow, I sent blank canvases to Coach Rhoads, McDermott, Ferentz and Lickliter...

    SOOOO, today I get home and on our step was a package from Iowa State Basketball! Coach even one-upped coach Rhoads by making the canvas look like the court at Hilton (still wondering if he did that). He also drew a play on the canvas! I have attached a pic and it will be available next Friday night!

    65 Roses: A Night To Breathe Easy

    Friday, September 25th 7pm
    Des Moines Social Club, Downtown Des Moines
    A night of art, music, food and a chance to help those with Cystic Fibrosis breathe easier.

    DJ Kelix Williams
    DJ Raj
    THE SHADOW
    Complimentary food by Dos Rios.
    Cash bar.

    A silent auction featuring art works of the evening will be the focus of the event as we raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

    Purchase your advance tickets at iowatix.com

    Adding tomorrows every day expresses the mission—and results—of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s steadfast efforts to extend the length and quality of life for people with cystic fibrosis (CF).

    CF presents daily challenges for approximately 30,000 Americans. But life with the disease is far different today than it was 50, 30, or even 10 years ago.

    Perhaps the best evidence that many people with cystic fibrosis are living longer is the fact that more than 40 percent of the CF patient population is now age 18 or older (your peer group).

    Recently developed therapies and specialized care have enabled people with CF to gain greater control over their disease. So, children and adults are not only living longer, but also living a better quality of life.

    65 Roses" is what some children with cystic fibrosis (CF) call their disease because the words are much easier for them to pronounce.

    Mary G. Weiss became a volunteer for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in 1965 after learning that her three little boys had CF. Her duty was to call every civic club, social and service organization seeking financial support for CF research. Mary's 4-year-old son, Richard, listened closely to his mother as she made each call.

    After several calls, Richard came into the room and told his Mom, "I know what you are working for." Mary was dumbstruck because Richard did not know what she was doing, nor did he know that he had cystic fibrosis. With some trepidation, Mary asked, "What am I working for, Richard?" He answered, "You are working for 65 Roses." Mary was speechless.
    He could not see the tears running down Mary's cheeks as she stammered, "Yes Richard, I'm working for 65 Roses."

    Since 1965, the term "65 Roses" has been used by children of all ages to describe their disease. But, making it easier to say does not make CF any easier to live with. The "65 Roses" story has captured the hearts and emotions of all who have heard it. The rose, appropriately the ancient symbol of love, has become a symbol of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

    Let us know if they do. I know of one fundraiser in the past for an Iowa fan that KF wouldnt sign a ball and didnt allow for a player from the fans hometown to have the rest of the team sign it.

    I thought before opening this that you got Coach Mac to make an ESPN 360 account for you and enable remote access.

    Re: HUGE THANK YOU TO COACH GREG MCDERMOTT!

    Cool idea on the art auction. Much cooler than just an autographed basketball.

    We have some really, really great people as coaches at Iowa State.

    Both of these have been awesome. Thanks for your hard work as a volunteer as well.

    Not for the coaches, but players are not allowed to sign autographs like this. It is a major NCAA Rules violation.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    A lot of teams must violate that rule then.

    That KF ball would be a worthless item anyway.

    Coach McDermott should've just drawn a stick figure of Brackins standing there in the lane.
