WPTA , Channel 21 is reporting that Colin Chaulk is announcing his retirement.
From an IceMen press release:
As I did two years ago, I'm going to jail for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. They sent out this long form letter that I'm supposed to send you that tugs at the heartstrings in an attempt to get you to donate. I'm not going to use it. Trying to guilt people into donating seems wrong to me. I'll just say I'm doing this again because it's a worthy cause, and the kids deserve it and leave it at that.
They will be inducted into the Indiana Sportswriters and Sportscasters Hall of Fame on Saturday!
