Awww. It's like a member of the franchise has passed.

The Joe won't be the same without him.

A moment of silence on Thursday would be most appropriate.

i just told my friend the same thing. we are going to the game together so i would hope for one. He was there for 30+ years, through good times and bad.

they should sell orange hats with the winger wheel on them.

It's like the knitting lady all over again. :(

How sad will everyone be when the dancing man eventually passes away?

Mo Cheese is immortal so that's not something we have to worry about

He wasnt at the home opener nor the colorado game, so i guess he has been sick for a while now.

WHAT the Cuss is up with that Mo Cheese Granholm commercial a few videos in?!?! Actually you have to watch the video with Mo Cheese on the dugout and then it is the 3rd video at the bottom after. So what's up with that!?!

That's a real bummer... he seemed like a real nice guy. I never talked to him, but I did pass him in the Concourse a couple of time and I'd smile and say "Hello", and he'd return the favor.

My wife and I went to the first two home games and where looking for him. Not finding him, we commented that we hoped he was ok. There was never a game I went to, that he was not there. RIP.

After my first game at the joe my father and I saw him outside, called over "hey orange hat guy!" and he laughed and said hello. One of those big, genuine smiles you don't see every day, it's one of my clearer memories of that night. He'll be missed by many people.
