      This is a gut punch. Met IG at the only tailgate I made it to years ago and he is an awesome dude. God bless IG and his family during this difficult time. Prayers up to the LEGEND himself!

          Don't know if it means anything but yesterday at Mass there was a new priest father Shaun who had an uncanny resemblance to IG. I did some extra prayers during the mass.

            Damn. As good a person as I've ever known. Great stories of Red Klotz. This totally sucks.

                I keep forgetting that I somehow never actually met IG in person, because it genuinely feels like I did. Exchanging emails, and (like so many others) receiving unexpected Eagles swag packages in the mail. His contributions to this bored can't be overstated.

                I had the pleasure of keeping IG's seat warm during the 2005 home opener against the Niners ("T-Ooooo, T-O, T-O, T-Ooooooo;" "I love Donovan!"). Nestled between Diggle, Boney Maroney Pinkston, and Hat Man, it was a great day.

                  This is awful. IG was good to my wife and I when we made the occasional gate. I'm glad I had the opportunity to link up with him here in Virginia when he was doing his book tour.

                      He spoke the truth, he told it straight, and he never had a problem speaking his mind.

                      Hoagiegate was his brainchild and he was the chief instigator. He flipped the occasion of the grand opening of Lurie’s Pleasure Palace on its head and managed to make the Luries publicly defend searching fans for Hoagies of Mass Destruction. He goaded Spadaro into saying the Luries Don’t Like Clutter which earned Dave public humiliation from the Luries. He was the Pied Piper of the board, and we followed his lead.

                        My old man had the same gift IG does. God knows I don’t: when you meet the guy, he makes you feel as if he and you have been best buddies forever. It’s a gift.

                            IG is synonymous with Igglephans and HE is the Legendary one here...tell him we all love him here and he has to hold on to watch the Phils win the WS, I'm sure that would be a great way to sign-off.

                              Hello Sir...I am saddened to hear of IG's current condition and just wanted to share a story. A number of years ago, I created a post that bordered on douchebaggery by attacking members for their opinion on the release of desean. IG took time out of his day to send me a PM, imparting some worldly advice to a young, hot-headed idiot. He was kind and cordial and that advice has not only stuck with me to this day, but it is advice that I will carry with me for the rest of my life and advice that I make sure I impart to my two children every chance I get. He did not have to do what he did but I am grateful that he did because it forever changed the way I interact with anyone.

                              I wish him nothing but peace in the time he has left and just wanted him and his best friend to know that he forever changed my life. Go Birds!
