I must say I was surprised to see this.

For those of you who don’t know, our much-beloved football coach, Coach Bladt, has been hospitalized. For more details you can view his website, of course.

Really, I hadn’t grasped the severity of the situation, but it’s starting to come into view. Please recover soon, Mr. Bladt. We’re counting on you for our third straight football state championship! How can I make that not sound pompous without using smilies?
