Boston College v Duke

Here’s some truly dreadful news: Jeff Capel’s father has been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease.

As most of you know, ALS is almost always a fatal disease and fairly quickly too. The only exception we’re aware of is the inexplicably long life of Stephen Hawking.

It’s going to be a very difficult time for the Capel family, so we hope Duke fans will go out of their way to shower Capel with love and affection in Cameron.

This is truly devastating news. All our best wishes and prayers to Jeff and his family.
