Okay, Steeler Nation, the nightmare of the 2012 season has passed. The drive for Number Seven officially begins on Thursday, April 25th and SFOM will be there (well not at the actual Draft, but you know what we mean).
Some of you may have already heard the sad news that our McGovern's bartender, Dave James, died in a car accident on February 24th. This news comes as a terrible shock - for many of us, Dave was the face of McGovern's. He had a ready smile, a quick sense of humor, and he greeted everyone with genuine affection. If you were lucky, maybe you even got a patented Dave James hug. If you spent any time at all with Dave, you probably have your own memories of his capacity for fun and his classic stories . The staff at McGovern's is very much a family and, as you can imagine, they are devastated by this news.
We have included a link to Dave's obituary, and funeral information is included. If you have trouble viewing the obituary, you can find it under David J. James in the obit section of the Pioneer Press website at http://www.twincities.com/.
Steelers Fans of Minnesota would like to take up a collection to donate to Dave's favorite charity, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. If you would like to donate, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will give you the details.
In the meantime, please keep Dave's family and friends in your thoughts.
