Michigan State Fan Postpones Heart Surgery To Watch Michigan Game

Save Him From Himself: Major Hester, 69, from Detroit is a retiree who suffers from cardiomyopathy. He’s also a Michigan State fan, a rabid one. He can’t watch with the sound because it gets him too riled up. Hester postponed heart surgery to get a pacemaker, because he was afraid complications would prevent him from watching this weekend’s game against Michigan. “It’s like going into combat,” Hester said. “You may come home alive or you may come home dead.” [DetNews]
