"Good God have mercy!" -Dave Schwartz

When Dave was doing a radar update today, things got a little crazy when Skytracker zoomed into the Seattle area instead of South Carolina, where Dave wanted it to go. His priceless reaction happens around 1:10 in the video.

LOL, Dave at his very best!  :rofl2: :rofl2:

This video will be put up on the site (that is, so long as you have no objection).

I never have any objections! :P

BTW, Dave seemed much more himself today; he never really seemed to stumble at all or be at a loss for words. Same goes for yesterday. It's a shame, though, that he has his good days and bad days. I really wish, to put it in his own terms, that "he would have his health." While of course the details of his current health are none of our business unless he chooses to make it so, I really hope that he's going to be okay in the long run and that his life is not in danger any longer.

I have a feeling Dave is going to be just fine. Generally, if that type of cancer is caught early you have a very good chance of living. And I must say, he seems to be getting better and better (at least in my opinion) as time goes along. I think he's improved quite drastically since we first became suspicious that something was wrong with him.

Wait, do we know what type of cancer he had? I never thought that was ever known.

In response to what you said, Gary, I have to agree; his first week back was especially sad to watch when you saw just how physically weak he looked and how he often stumbled and got confused over words.

I read somewhere that it was prostate cancer, though I don't remember where I saw it, and I don't know where the person that posted it got the info from. It may not be accurate for all I know.

Yeah he was a wreck that first week. It was definitley very hard to watch.

I know he said he had cancer on the air, but I never heard him get more specific.
