Please, can anyone tell me how to get contact with him? I mean, is there something like a fanclub??? Gr., Claudia Beuken

DeeDeeJan 21, 2009

I am huge fan. I went to school with Mike when he attended Kankakee Community College, he played B-Ball with my ex or should I say at that time my soon to be husband. Mike was sweet as can be, he was like a gentle giant and he and I became good friends. I have been following him and his success for years and I am so glad he was blessed to have a life filled with success. Back then he had such a good heart and I know that it is because of that good heart that God has chosen to grant him many blessings. If I could talk to him today, I wonder if he would even remember me. I am the girl who drove her daddy`s caddy and gave him rides home after the ball games. Way to go Mike, you did good

SandyJan 4, 2009

I love his personality that he portrays on TV. If his real life personality is anywhere close then he would be an easy man to love.
