Best wishes, prayers for SI’s Farber

The Habs Inside/Out community sends its best wishes and its prayers to Sports Illustrated’s Michael Farber, who this morning told his CJAD audience that he’s beginning treatment for cancer. Farber is one of the best. Here’s hoping his treatment goes smoothly and we see him back on the hockey beat soon.

    Get well soon Mr. Farber – I’ve always respected your intelligent positions and journalism.


    A man’s attitude… a man’s attitude goes some ways. The way his life will be. Is that somethin’ you agree with?

    UncleEvil. That is probably the stupidest comment I’ve ever seen on here and I’ve seen a few stupid ones.

  20. VancouverHab says:

    I must confess that Mr. Jack Todd, his malefecencies and incapacities aside, filled me from day one with a gnawing, aching yearning for the affirmative and self-effacing excellencies of Michael Farber.

    Get well soon & God bless.

    I don’t always agree with Mr. Farber, but at least his reasoning is sound and he stands up for his convictions. Best wishes, and get well soon
