R.I.P. Cha-Cha (Jason Bolich)

Cha-Cha, mid­fiel­der extra­or­dinaire and Slab All­star play­er, pas­sed away on Decem­ber 7th, 2010.
We still have no words, just emp­ti­ness.
Cha-Cha, you will be mis­sed. Fare well whe­ree­ver you might be.
May­be tho­se pho­tos with you in your safe­ty oran­ge jer­sey will help us to cope bet­ter with this loss.

Cha Cha was one of the Slabs who made us all look bet­ter on the field. His scrap­pi­ness and deter­mi­na­ti­on were an inspi­ra­ti­on to hacks like me and made us all try and be the best play­ers we could be. He was defi­ni­te­ly a huge rea­son why the Slabs were com­pe­ti­ti­ve almost every sea­son in the ear­ly ’00s, when we would be see­min­gly out­mat­ched by youn­ger, quicker teams. I play­ed with him for six years with the Slabs and I will remem­ber him as a genui­ne­ly gre­at guy on and off the field.

He was a gre­at guy both on and off the field – very posi­ti­ve, exu­berant per­so­na­li­ty and a good cen­tral mid­fiel­der who worked hard on both sides of the ball. It“™s tough to take.
(John Smith)

For the first few years play­ing along Cha Cha, I never real­ly knew his real name and final­ly, one day I went up to him and asked, dude what’s your real name? He loo­ked up and star­ted to smi­le. I can still remem­ber that day. Slabs all time gre­at play­er!
