My name is Terry Foster and I am the guy that used to write for the news paper in Detroit and did sports talk radio.
My life was on a roll until I suffered a stroke last year and my life has changed. I blame myself for not monitoring my blood pressure better. A doctor has since told me that I may have been dealt a bad set of veins inside my brain and they were ticking time bombs ready to clog up.
I was lucky. The veins became sluggish, but not clogged. So I lived another day.
I am a new man and I want to share my thoughts with old friends in this blog and through podcasting. I will talk about my new life, my old life, Detroit sports, or whatever else crosses my mind. It will be personal at times. And I will rap on real life and real issues.
In other words I want to be a voice, no matter how small it may be now.
I also need your help. I want to pay the people helping me and donate to charities I’ve worked with. Heart to Hart passes out food, blankets, clothing and personal items to the homeless while the Enchanted Barn saves and houses mistreated animals and has inner city kids come out and learn to take care of them.
My pal Melissa runs the Enchanted Barn and needs our help.
I got involved with Heart to Hart after seeing people huddle near steam pipes on cold winter days after leaving Lion games at night. My heart sank seeing this.
Selfishly I still want to get my word out and entertain even though I am retired. And why not tryet to help those that help others?
I will continue my blog also. I plan to peck out a few words that I hope entertain you, and move you to action, tears or laughter. If you don’t care what I have to say I won’t be offended. Move on. Nothing to see here.
I will try to help you lose weight.
I will try to help you get healthy.
And I will do the impossible. I will try to get you to understand the Detroit Lions.
And I will eventually pick up a note pad and try to break a story or two. I need to talk to my league people first.
I hope you enjoy. I do believe there is room to praise me or rip me. Go ahead. We are friends.
I will not comment about Donald Trump because pro Trump and anti Trump people are like roaches. They never go away and they keep barking the same nonsense for weeks at a time.
How am I feeling since quitting radio? Good but not great. Doctors say I won’t fully recover until the fall. But I no longer get evening headaches and am not exhausted at the end of the day.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you return again.
