    • Sad news about Trebek. Not that it was unexpected, but I really hate that he lost his battle with cancer.
      Winners see success and want to climb up to its level. Losers see success and want to drag it down to their own.

      • Former Celtics player and coach Tom Heinson passed. He won a bunch of titles as a player and one or two as a coach.

            Saw where George Stephanopolous’ reps have reached out to see if there was interest in him replacing Trbek. He get an emphatic ‘no’ from me. I’d go w/ Conan O’Brien. I’m sure there are others out there as well that I haven’t considered.

              Pancreatic cancer is a beast. Such a tough organ to access so lots of patients aren’t even eligible for surgery. Only options are Folfirinox or Gemcitabine + Abraxane both of which are brutal. Sounds like he got some great care as he likely beat the median PFS for such patients.

                        • Gonna be hard to find someone to replace Trebek. Should be someone distinguished and intelligent, but not completely stuffy.

                          I'm thinking Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.

                            • You need someone smart, a lifelong learner, and very articulate so they can pronounce some of the words, read the questions well, etc. What made Trebek so great was that he made sure he knew what he was saying.

                              • RIP to Celtic great Tommy Heinsohn. He was a part of 10 NBA titles as player & coach. Also, starred in those Miller Lite ads from the 80s & did some analysis work on tv for NBA games.

                                • For Trebek's replacemtn, I'd prefer Austin Rogers. He is the bartender from Boston (I think) who won a good bit, was smart, and was at home on the show.

                                    • I was always disappointed that sports played a very small role, particularly with how sports is so ingrained in our lives. You can always count on some form of literature being a category almost every night.

                                                            One of my favorite all-time covers of SI is Dick Allen juggling baseballs in the dugout with a cigarette dangling from his mouth. Sporting those sweet 70s era red Chicago White Sox uni made it that much more cool.

                                                            • Former Lake County author Kittredge dies in Montana

                                                              William Kittredge, who grew up in Eastern Oregon on his family’s historic MC Ranch near Adel in Lake County and who was regarded by many as the dean of Western writers, died Friday, Dec. 4 in Montana.

                                                              Kittredge, 88, is the author of several books, including his memoir, “Hole In the Sky,” a book edited with Annick Smith, “The Last Best Place: A Montana Anthology,” and books of essays, “Owning It All,” “The Nature of Generosity” and “Balancing Water: Restoring the Klamath Basin,” which was published in 2000 and featured photographs by Tupper Ansel Blake of Dorris and Madeleine Graham Blake of Klamath Falls.

                                                              I can recommend Last Best Place, an anthology of some of the greatest stories and storytellers of the American West, which he co-edited.

                                                              Among his many honors was a National Humanities Award by then-President Bill Clinton in 1994. Two of his books, “Hole In The Sky” and “Owning It All,” recall his impressions of growing up in southeastern Oregon. He is often critical of his family, himself and damage created by irresponsible ranching and farming.

                                                              ”We thought we were doing God’s work out there,” said Kittredge of life on the MC Ranch. “We found out that some of that ‘big’ ag doesn’t work.” “Hole In The Sky,” in which Kittredge chronicles his personal failures, won the PEN West Award in 1992 for best nonfiction book of the year. He also co-edited “The Last Best Place: A Montana Anthology” in 1988 and co-authored nine novels in the Cord series of Westerns. “Who Won the West” was published in 1996. His novel, “The Willow Field,” was published in 2006.

Also have that signed ticket by Allen & Carlos May. My old man was a union official with the USW so we got to sit on the dugout a lot during Allen's years in Chicago. After that, Dick would call my dad, Mr. Lucky.

                                                                  Just looked up the box score. Sox lost 2-1 and of course Allen had a HR.

Huge loss to Country music, and music in general.

Born David John Moore Cornwell, he actually served as an intelligence officer for both MI5 and MI6 during the 50's and 60's, and adopted the pen name le Carré due to British Intelligence prohibitions against officers publishing under their own name.

                                                                                          le Carré raised spy fiction to a whole new level and many of his books, such as The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, Smiley's People, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and The Russia House are classics which have been made into successful movies.
