    is this db

    Len Pasquarelli, the ESPN.com football writer extraordinaire, gave incredible meaning to "playing hurt" this weekend. I noticed at the Pro Football Hall of Fame voting Saturday that Lenny seemed ill, and he was unusually quiet. He left the voting, wrote a story for his Web site on the latest failed bid to get Paul Tagliabue elected, then checked into a local hospital ... to find that he had five blocked arteries. He had quintuple bypass surgery Sunday. That is one tough dude. Your peers really admire you, Len. Get well soon.---Peter King

    Wow. That's dedication.

    Good luck with the recovery, Len.

    CareerBuilder.com could have used him in that "follow your heart" Super Bowl commercial.

    And I have the highest regard for Len, pro's pro. Glad he got himself fixed, for years of scribblin' to come.

    Lenny is one of those steel-tough Pittsburgh guys, so he'll be fine. His dad used to be the press gate attendant at Three Rivers.

    Cripes. Best wishes. But I'm beginning to think working for ESPN isn't that great for your health.

    It takes tough birds like Len to work for ESPN
    I think it must take tough birds like Len to last at ESPN

    len's good people and a workhorse. good thing his wife was with him in arizona to drag him to the emergency room.

    spoke to his daughter this afternoon and she sounded very upbeat that len's recovering nicely. probably can't come home for a couple of weeks.

    but encouraging news, overall. whew!

    I'd hate to be the one in charge of ESPN's health plan right now.

    Here's to a speedy recovery.

    You could probably take a sledgehammer to a Pittsburgh guy's ticker, and it'd keep going. Primanti Bros. must put something in those sandwiches.

    I read somewhere that Peter King was hospitalized as well and didn't make the game... I have no idea if that's true.

    Not a fan of Len's on any level, but I hope he's OK...
