    There's no timetable for playing football again. I would like to wake up some morning and start working out and getting ready for the season.....

    I didn't latch on to fishing until I got to Minnesota. I ended up getting a boat. It's one of my favorite things now.
    Comeon down my friend.
    I will take ya fishing.
    ;D

    I want my epitaph to say, "Here lies Kenechi Udeze, who was a genuine, true and sincere person."
    Amen my friend.

    Nice interview.

    [size=13pt]Brotherly love helping Udeze in fight against leukemia[/size]

    By Kevin Seifert
    ESPN.com

    The minutes felt like hours. The days crawled by like months. Thomas Barnes just wanted an answer. Was he a match? Or would a simple blood test add another layer of heartbreak?

    "Easily, the most difficult week of my life," Barnes said.

    His brother, Minnesota Vikings defensive end Kenechi Udeze, had been diagnosed Feb. 4 with an acute form of leukemia known as ALL. Doctors provided the grim statistics: The five-year survival rate for a person who undergoes only chemotherapy is 40 percent, according to The Marrow Foundation. A bone-marrow transplant would significantly increase Udeze's chances, but first he'd need a match.

    By JUDD ZULGAD, Star Tribune

    When the Vikings' Kenechi Udeze has a bone marrow transplant this week, brother Thomas Barnes will be the donor, cementing the relationship they've had since childhood.

    Awesome stories..

    How awesome would it be to see the Vikes pull out a Super Bowl win for Kenechi?
    That, would we sweet.

    Thanks for the updates my friends.

    Sounds like Keneche has not only a great brother, but a damn smart one as well.

    Barnes left the family's Los Angeles home when he was 15 after winning a scholarship to attend high school in Appleton, Wis. He later moved on to law school at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn., and ironically was working as a Twin Cities attorney when the Vikings selected Udeze in the first round of the 2004 draft.
    Have I said how much class our new Ownership group has or how much I like them lately? : ;D


    The Vikings placed Udeze on the reserve/non-football injury list in May but pledged to pay his 2008 base salary of $807,500 regardless. That gesture will allow Udeze, his wife, Terrica, and daughter, Bailey (who's seven months old), to continue living in the Twin Cities while Udeze recovers from the transplant procedure and begins his football comeback.
