Todd and I get together for another episode of the Five Heart Podcast!

It’s a grand old time as we discuss the latest monumental hire of Rob Childress as director of player development for the Nebraska baseball program.

Then there’s this other hire that happened this week as Trev Alberts is Nebraska’s athletic director. Neither Todd nor I are that impressed with this hire. We discuss that.

KEEP IN MIND - that just because neither of us are really positive on this hire that we want Mr. Alberts to fail. I speak for myself when I say that I hope he’s incredibly successful to the point my questioning of this hire is ridiculed for ages to come.

Jon has a book out!

On August 21st, 2015, Jon unexpectedly dropped dead of a widowmaker heart attack. He was shocked five times on the way to the hospital with no response. He was shocked two more times in the ER. He was dead for over 20 minutes. A stent was placed, and he was induced into a coma. In January 2016 Jon received a second stent and in June he was diagnosed with an anoxic brain injury.

He wrote a book about death and recovery. The title, “Been Dead, Never Been To Europe” reflects the ironic nature of life, what happens versus what we want to happen. It’s available at Amazon in Kindle and Paperback.

Consider signing up for Jon’s Postlife Crisis newsletter, which is about Jon and interests beyond Cornhuskers sports. (I know, right?)
