You don’t get a lot of second chances in life, and I am going to use one of mine right now.
I am going to vote to put Herb Didrickson into the Alaska Sports Hall Of Fame.
Last year I kicked myself for not doing more for, arguably, one of Alaska’s greatest players.
Like all great athletes, the battle eventually becomes not one against fast-running, hard-hitting, deadeye opponents, but of the aging seasons traveled.
Herb Didrickson is currently playing the most important game of his career at a hospital in Anchorage, undergoing chemotherapy.
