Damn he's the only one on NBC's race coverage I mildly liked.
Yes, and within like 10 days. I really was hoping this wasn't to be a particular popular thread, due to inactivity and lack of death.
Using the link found in the Bronco Player Dead thread.

Dennis Johnson, Celtics legend died at the age of 52 this week. He certainly wasn't regarded as highly as he probably deserved to be.
I'd also like to make note of L.T.'s father, who wasn't an athlete, but meant a lot to his son.
Six members of the Bluffton University baseball team died in a bus crash this morning. [link=http://sports.espn.go.com/ncaa/news/story?id=2785357]The story can be found here.[/link] This is just tragic, and it rocking the community in and around the University and city of Bluffton.
What is going on, 2007? This year has been full of tragedy. Things have got to get better.
Another tragic event, in a year that has certainly been full of them. I really hope this trend doesn't continue, its bad enough already.
Just heard about this on the radio on my way home. This is just terrible.

What a shame, yet another tragedy this year.
Legendary coach Eddie Robinson passed away at an Atlanta hospital at age 84. He was Grambling coach for over 45 years and amassed 400+ career wins and sent over 200 players to the NFL.
Sad to report the death of Cardinals reliever Josh Hancock, killed in car accident. Tonights SNB Cubs-Cards game has been postponed.
ST. LOUIS -- Josh Hancock, a key member of the bullpen that helped the St. Louis Cardinals win the World Series last season, was killed in a car crash early Sunday.
The Cardinals said they were told of the 29-year-old reliever's death by the St. Louis Police Department. The team's home game against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday night was postponed.
The team said the accident happened in St. Louis, but no other details were disclosed. The Cardinals and police are expected to make a statement this afternoon at Busch Stadium.
Hancock has pitched for four major league clubs. He went 3-3 in 62 regular-season appearances for the Cardinals last season and pitched in three postseason games. He was 0-1 with a 3.55 ERA in eight games this season.
Hancock joined the Cardinals before the 2006 season. He has pitched for Boston, Philadelphia and Cincinnati.
Way to young.
Way too young indeed.
Very sad especially at that age
I really don't know what to say about this, besides it should not be like this.
A former NFL linebacker who played for the Redskins died as well over the last weekend of a heart attack at age 36.
Ugh, these are happening with far too much frequency.
For those of us that follow boxing, this probably is more stunning than for the majority who never got to see Diego Corrales fight--but you really should try to dig up his Castillo fight from a few yrs back if you have any remote interest in the sport.
"Chico" was killed in a motorcycle accident in Vegas tonight, at 29. Very tragic loss.
Former two-division champion Corrales killed in Vegas
By Dan Rafael
Former two-division world champion Diego "Chico" Corrales, who lived as hard as he fought, died in a mororcycle crash Monday night in Las Vegas.
"He crashed on a motorcycle. It don't look like he made it through this," manager James Prince told ESPN.com as he was arriving on the scene. "He's dead."
Corrales, 29, will be remembered as one of the fiercest fighters of his era, a never-say-die warrior who thrilled legions of fans with several action-packed fights.
You know, when I started this thread, I really didn't think it'd be filled with so many entries.
