  • A Brother Needs Our Prayers.

    Not sure how many of you may know this already, I know I didn't until today, but our Brother Randy, aka bigredman, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He is in a cancer treatment center in Illinois and on Mon or Tue this next week he will be having a biopsy done I assume to determine where to go from here.

    Most of us here know what an amazing person Randy is, as he has touched many of our lives in very special ways. If you believe in God, please get on your knees and pray for Randy's healing and comfort.

    Randy if you're reading this, I want you to know that we love you and are praying for you. Hang in there my friend, and try not to harrass the nurses too much.

      This is terrible news. I will definitely pray to Yahweh for healing for our friend, Randy.

                I've got two links for those who would like to leave Randy a message or connect with him:

       This is the CTCA webpage for Randy, you can see some info and updates about him as well as leave a message.

                Login | Facebook This is Randy's Facebook page.

                I've never met the man in person, but I'm sure that everyone that has been here on the forums have enjoyed his contributions to this place. I'm also sure he'd like to hear from all of you.

                  Randy, although I've never met you in person, just from these forums I could tell what a great guy you are and you are the last person that deserves to go through this. I hope everything works out well for you, I'll definitely have you in my thoughts & prayers. Here's to a speedy recover.

                    Sad news. Randy you are in my prayers. You beat cancer once, try to do it again. My uncle was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer years ago and they opened him up to see that it had spread all over. They did no surgery, just chemo every now and then. Uncle Bob has the slow growing kind of cancer and he is still alive and kicking.

                    All the best Randy. Hang in there.

                        Re: A Brother Needs Our Prayers.

                        I have been aware of Randy's condition for awhile now as I was informed by a mutual friend, but was unsure if I wanted to make it general knowledge.

                        It isn't that he was hiding it, n because it has been on his FB page from the onset, rather that I didn't know if it was my place to announce it.

                        Thank you RFTID for doing this, I am sure Randy appreciates it and Heaven knows one can use all the support they can get in times like this.

                        Like Randy insinuated, cancer is a tough way to get back to one's 'playing weight'. For those who don't know, Randy once was in training camp with the Rams trying to win a roster spot. In fact it think he said it was Cullen Bryant that forgave him the $500 he owed? >8)

                        We're thinking and praying for your recovery, BRM!

                        GO RAMS!!

                          That is worrying news but , as the son and friend of cancer patients in the past, I know how much of a role a passionate spirit plays in the fight against this terrible disease. I don't know Randy personally,either, but anyone who has enjoyed his contributions here knows he has that spirit to the nth degree.

                          My very best wishes to him & his loved ones in this difficult time.

                            Like Tim, I have been aware of Randy's battle but I figured Randy would post it here when he was ready. I also didn't feel it was my place although I cannot say that I wasn't tempted. I suspect Randy hasn't posted it yet because he didn't want to draw attention to himself (which we know is completely opposite of his normal self - lol).

                            Randy is at Cancer Treatment Center outside of Chicago. That particular center specializes in pancreatic cancer. I wish that our CTC here is Tulsa was the one that specialized in that cancer so that we could help Randy and Rebecca (Randy's wife) more.

                            Randy is of the mind set to beat cancer. How can you help? Go to the links posted above and leave messages for Randy. They don't have to be long, just a word to let him know he is in your thoughts.

                            Also, stop by Rebecca's Facebook page and let her know that she is also in your thoughts.

                            Randy did try out for the Rams in the late 70's as a linebacker.

                                My father died yesterday afternoon. Although he wasn't the nicest of men, he unfortunately died alone in a hospital bed. His wife (my step mother) had the Doctors remove him from life support (Without notifying his children) and promptly left the hospital. It's a sad thing. I wasn't all that close to my father. However, he really didn't deserve to die alone.

                                Just wanted to give a huge Thank You to all of our Troops in harms way. Here's wishing you a fast & safe trip home. To all the Veterans that have served, Thank you also, for with out you, we would not enjoy the freedoms we have today.

                                And last but not least, the Hero's. To all the Families of sevicemen & women who have lost their loved ones fighting for what this country believes in, we are forever in debt to you. Memorial Day is a day for remembering these Brave young men & women & I hope all here on the Clan Ram will give a moment of your time to remember.

                                Have a safe & wonderful weekend

                                AlphaRam was ill,
                                the day the Earth stood still,
                                but he told us where we stand...

                                BigRedMan...such a creature
                                See kilts a flying,
                                Vomit splatter
                                Shield your eyes,
                                it doesn't matter
                                At the late night, double feature, picture show...

                                "Yes, Randall?"
                                "I really love that special way..."
                                "You fan your gas with your skirt that way!"

                                I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey.

                                "I'm lucky! You're lucky! We're all lucky! Ha ha ha !"

                                I remember going to Ft Worth
                                Driving to the airport when
                                The misdirection would hit me and Lynne was calling
                                Not to the airport again...
                                Not to the airport again!

                                It's just a jump to the left
                                And then a step to the right
                                With your hands on your hips
                                You bring your knees in tight
                                But it's the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane,
                                Let's do the Time Warp again!

                                How do you do, I see you met my, faithful garbage man
                                He just a little brought down
                                because when you knocked,
                                He thought you the man from Glad

                                Don't get strung out
                                by the way I look,
                                Don't judge a book by it's cov-ov-over
                                I'm a hairy man by the light of day
                                and by night I'm one hell of a lover
                                I'm just a sweet BigRedMan..from Stockton, Californ -yah-ah

                                Let's go up to the lab,
                                and iron my kilt on the slab

                                OK, I don't know how he pulled this off...

                                You better wise up, Randy Weiss,
                                You better wise up, build them thighs up!

                                Master, we have a visitor.
                                Dr Randy von Scott!

                                My friends,
                                Randy hasn't been the same since we were in Dallas last year to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show when we also went to see the Rams play the Cowgirls. He now makes us call him RandyFurter when we talk on the phone.

                                And crawling on Randy's face

                                Some insects call the human race.

                                Lost in time,

                                and lost in space...

                                ...and in meaning...

                                Sad news with a friend
                                by RamWraith
                                Bigredman has received some very disturbing information. He has been diagnosed with cancer.

                                It has come to my attention that some of you at the Clan have chosen to PM with some harsh words about what appeared to be only humor on Big's part. This is time to offer support and help for a fallen brother. I really hope some people would take a step back and do a little self reflecting if indeed their behavior was less than desirable and offer an apology.

                                Take care old friend. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers through this trying times. I hope the Clan can provide with a little comfort, humor and companionship when you need it the most. Hang in there, we all will get through this together.
