Fredrick Sova, AKA "Fearless Fredrick Von Sova" as he was known to me, was a good man with several years in the U.S. Military and Postal Service. He loved to talk sports, had an infectious laugh and spoke fluent German. My sincere condolences to his friends and family.

Some may pooh-pooh this notice, but I am quite seriously saying I considered Fred to be a friend-of-sorts, even though I only met him twice at sports events and talked briefly with him. He knew I was a Wolverine, and he did nothing to disparage my team, happily sharing our love of college sports in our conversations.

I felt I knew Fred from his hundreds of phone calls to local talk shows, especially Tim Staudt's radio show. Fred took more than a few words to get to his point, earning his Staudt nickname of "Showkiller," which Fred seemed to take in stride. I knew that he would make a good point, observing things others didn't notice, and I paid more attention when I heard he was the new caller because he would point out something I hadn't noticed or thought of.

From talking with him in person, I always got the feeling he was very content with his retired life, loved being able to go to all sorts of MSU and other sports--I last spoke with him at a high school baseball game. In these ways, he and I have much in common.

A Wolverine salute to you, Mr. Sova--few people got more enjoyment in their lives from following sports than you did.
