Bo’s father fighting for his life

Bo Jackson had to cut short his participation in the… get ready… First Tee of Montgomery Benefit Golf Classic at Wynlakes Country Club yesterday in order to be with his father who is fighting for his life in a Birmingham hospital.

Jackson was scheduled to give a short speech at the dinner and take questions from the audience but was overcome by emotion as he begged his leave from the dinner to spend time with his father.”I’d love to stay with you guys, but this morning… ” he started. After a long pause to recompose himself, he added, “I’ve got to go to Birmingham and see my dad.”

“Visiting hours end at 5:30,” Bo can be heard saying in a video of the dinner on the Montgomery Advertiser’s website. “But I’m going to go up and use my muscle.”

If there are any additional details on his dad’s condition, I can’t find them.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bo, his dad, and his family.
