Clemson, SC – Clemson Sports Information Director Emeritus Bob Bradley was upgraded to fair condition Friday, as he is treated for an irregular heart beat at the Oconee Memorial Hospital in Seneca. Bradley, Clemson’s Hall of Fame Sports Information Director from 1955-89, has been in the hospital since Wednesday.
Bradley, 75, originally was admitted to the facility with pneumonia. That problem has subsided, but Bradley has been treated for cardiac arrhythmia the last two days. He was improving Friday afternoon, but will remain in the hospital for an undetermind amount of time.
He will not attend the Clemson vs. North Carolina game this Saturday, the first Clemson football game he has missed since 1955. This incredible 502-game streak dates to October 20, 1955 (a game at South Carolina), meaning Saturday will be nearly the 45th anniversary of the beginning of the streak.
“I am looking forward to watching a Clemson football game on television for the first time,” said Bradley, whose streak is virtually congruent with the history of television. “I hope to begin a new streak next week.”
