    Legendary Georgetown BB coach John Thompson has went to the big hoops game in the sky. The man had some real powerhouse teams with Ewing and Mourning in the middle.

    RIP Coach.

    Saw this from Golic Jr. earlier, got a little dusty at the end

    I saw Black Panther earlier this year. I really just started watching the Marvel movies, last year or so, and BP didn't resonate with me. I went in with low expectations and came out amazed at how regal he seemed in the role. It was a good movie, too.

    The first news outlet I saw with the story of his passing was our local newspaper. I thought they got fooled by one of those fake-death websites. Cancer sucks.

    Unreal - never even knew he was battling this.
    I just read an article about all the stuff he did with the kids that had cancer. Pretty cool. Cancer sucks. This is one thing everyone can say they lost someone too.

And here we were, years later as friends and colleagues, enjoying the most glorious night ever! We’d spent weeks prepping, working, sitting next to each other every morning in makeup chairs, preparing for the day together as mother and son.

    I had no idea he was battling cancer. I don't think it had been revealed to the public. Sure didn't expect to see this when I logged on tonight. Talented guy and too young for this.

    Did anyone even know he was sick??? 42 is a big movie in our family,... my youngest was going to be a Jackie like how I’m named after Hank Aaron but that changed at the very last second. I still call her ‘J’ for her middle name tho,... anyway 42 is a big movie with us. This is shocking, no idea he was even sick.

    I think a lot of the money went into trying to decontaminate the ground around the trees, which Updyke had poisoned. He was a nut. Had no meaningful connection to Bama, but was a rabid fan from TX who took offense to some Auburn fans committing some minor vandalism on the Bama campus. He reminded me of someone who'd fried half his brain cells on alcohol or drugs and just wasn't all there. One of the more bizarre incidents in the history of sports rivalries.

    Looks like Harvey got off 100k light.

    The whole thing just illustrates why we should drop Alabama from the U.S. Time to make America Somoa a state. Maybe we could instill some sort of pro/relegation system.
    Who pays a million dollars to replant a couple trees? People in Alabama, that's who.

The whole thing was a bit much. Don't get me wrong, I'm indifferent to both Alabama and Auburn football, but at the end of the day....they were just trees. 80 days and $7000 felt like more than enough punishment.

    Lou Henson has went to the big arena in the Sky. His combover was referred to as the Loudo. In the 80's, he had some stud teams at Illinois. The problem was the B1G had Purdue, IU and scUM rolling at that time. I’m sure Cruz remembers some of his teams. RIP Lou.

    More than just a GWTW star. Won two Oscars for other roles. She sure got her money’s worth out of life and then some.

    Amazing to think any of the GWTW stars were still alive. She was the last at 104.

    Actor John Saxon has passed away at the age of 83. You sort of have to be of a certain age to know who he is, but if you grew up in the 70's, he was that guy who was in everything. He worked with Brando, Eastwood, starred alongside Bruce Lee (he was a martial arts expert), and made guest appearances on countless TV shows.

    RIP Regis. He had a great ride. I think his degree from ND was In sociology.

    RIP Regis!

    Thank you for everything!

    My Mom used to watch his morning show on satellite out of New York before Kathy Lee joined him, long before I knew he was an ND alum.

    Here's a clip of his St Louis Late Night Show from the early 70's:

    I saw the news on Green earlier,... ‘Who did the original version of Black Magic Woman?’ is one of the best music trivia questions,... I’ve stumped many a music fan with that one.

    Legendary British guitarist Peter Green passed away today. No cause of death was given. Green replaced Clapton in John Mayall's Blues Breakers and then went on to found Fleetwood Mac. He wrote Oh Well and Black Magic Woman, the latter of which became a big hit for Santana. After a few years in Fleetwood Mac, Green's behavior started becoming erratic and he was diagnosed as schizophrenic. Heavy drug use, including large amounts of LSD and mescaline, made things even worse and his career more or less ended. Extremely talented as a blues and rock guitarist, but not healthy enough to achieve the career his talent merited.

    I've got news for ya.....All religion is a money grab. Wanna pray to a statue or deity, knock yourself out. The Tom statement made me laugh though. Well played.

    Just saw a write up about this. Didn't realize Grant worked on the Star Wars prequels and a lot of other work for ILM and other companies. I only knew about his history with Mythbusters. Very talented engineer.
