Remembering “Mad Dog”
Dave Cadwell was known to many in the MLBlogs community for much of our first two years as the person behind the Yankee blog Mad Dog Reports and Maddog’s World Cup Reports during soccer’s big 2006 event. We are sad to report that Dave passed away last month. His fiancee, Michele Brickner, emailed to see if we could provide a copy of Dave’s interview on the MLB.com "Under the Lights" radio show that is still archived with others on the MLBlogs.com homepage — so that Dave’s surviving children can hear his voice whenever they need to. It was a good voice, and a friendly and spirited one to all of us around here. And that voice is missed.
Michele just emailed us the following that we thought everyone should see:
"I got the file, and it was wonderful hearing his voice again. And I am sure that his kids will feel the same way. You are more than welcome to mention Dave’s passing to the blog community. He died on January 13, 2007 from a heart attack. If you would like, you can mention the memorial website I am creating. It is not done yet, but it will be complete by March 13, 2007. The address is http://dave-cadwell.last-memories.com. Blogging brought Dave such pleasure (we were even trying to use it to get him into sports writing). Thank you for all your help."
Our condolences to Michele and Dave’s family.
