Two months ago David Cosner walked into to theCHIVE HQ. He had just left the hospital. After fighting Wegener’s Granulomatosis, an extremely rare disease that has relentlessly attacked his lungs, the doctors had just told David he was terminal.
David decided not to go home after getting the news. Instead he came to theCHIVE with one of the craziest ideas I ever heard. David wanted to join the 2018 Bass Pro Bassmasters circuit, and he wanted to win it. David is an experienced angler. Prior to his diagnosis he was ranked in Texas.
“You think you can do this?”
“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”
Here’s a guy who just found out he’s going to die and he’s in my office telling me he’s going to a professional bass fisherman and quoting Hunter S. Thompson. I’ve always liked David rather a lot.
