    Matt "Guitar" Murphy of The Blues Brothers fame passed away at 88. I always loved his scene with Aretha Franklin where he's thinking of rejoining the band and she tells him that he better think about that decision

    • I appreciate that many Chicago Blues greats were brought in for "the band."

      Hell, they even had Cab Calloway!

        • Charles Krauthammer, 68, passed away today from cancer.

          https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/ch...cid=spartanntp

          No surprise, as he's been fighting cancer for some time and announced a few weeks ago that he had been told he only had a few weeks to live. Krauthammer was a major voice in Conservative politics & journalism over the past few decades.

          • Fair minded rarely over the top imo... shame most on either side don’t take his approach
            This sig will not change until The Browns win the Super Bowl... So get real used to it.

            • As un-sensational and fair as anyone could be in today's divided click driven media. I didn't agree with him at times, but appreciated his approach.

                • Passed away Monday. Doctors were spot on.

                  WWE legend Big Van Vader died on June 18 at the age of 63, according to his Twitter account.

                  Real name Leon White, he was diagnosed with congestive heart failure in 2016 with doctors giving him two years to live.

                      There is an annual Yellow Brick Road Festival in Chesterton, IN.

                      Awhile back, they had one of the last munchkins make an appearance, and she got hit and killed by a semi getting on the highway immediately afterwards.

                                  Pantera is one of my all time favorite bands. Saw them twice before they broke up. Terrible news.

                                    Did they change the name? I grew up in Chesterton. It was the Wizard of Oz fest when I was there.

                                        Yep. Just googled it. We would go every year when I lived there. I honestly have no idea why they would have a wizard of oz festival in a place that has nothing to do with the wizard of oz.

                                                            • Not exactly a famous person, but my father, the reason I consider myself a Notre Dame fan, died recently. It's something I've been needing to get off my chest for, what seems like, the longest time.

                                                              I'm probably a youngin' here, born in '91. But I've seen Notre Dame football home, away, and at bowl games. I've been to home and away basketball games. Throughout my entire life, my dad and I always shared a Notre Dame bond. In the late 40s, he and his two brothers were the first generation of his Irish family to be born in America. I'll never forget the stories of Notre Dame he told me. He spoke of greatness. Not just championships, but of an underdog upsetting greats like Oklahoma (which, he listened to on a radio with my grandmother) or UCLA in basketball. I never missed a Notre Dame football game with him. When we lived on the East Coast, if we couldn't order the game on ESPN+, we'd listen to it online, which only happened a handful of times. I remember him telling me of Faust getting destroyed by Johnson, only for Parseghian to comment that "Notre Dame will rise again." I remember, the only time abandoning the Irish, going to my room during the 2006 ND @ MSU game, only to run out, screaming in glee, when Lambert returned an INT for a TD. During my college years, away from home, we stayed in touch during the games. And if I couldn't watch the game live, we agreed to ignore football for the day and have the experience simultaneously. To put this in perspective, we had numerous Saturday's where we spent the entire day watching the sport. So, our interest went beyond ND football. We both liked college football, period.

                                                              Recently, my mother and father moved near my maternal grandparents, and I eventually followed suit. My maternal grandfather died late last year. Although I saw him frequently, and I hate to say this, his death didn't tear me apart. I loved him, yes. No doubt about it, but he was my grandfather. He didn't exactly define anything I do in life. Having said that, he's a graduate of the University of Michigan, and was a huge Wolverine. My father and I never watched football with him, even though we both knew he watched Michigan every Saturday. In fact, my father and I both hold the controversial opinion that Notre Dame should schedule Michigan State over Michigan on a yearly basis, but I digress. Having said that, with the Michigan v Notre Dame game looming overhead, my view has shifted drastically. My mother has, foolishly, agreed to watch the game with me. She knows that I haven't been able to do anything Notre Dame related since the death of my father. Any time I watch or read anything related to Notre Dame football, I can't help myself and I begin to cry. I can only imagine how difficult the position I've put her in. Unlike my father, a Catholic who, at the end of the day, would eventually wish for the Catholic team to win, my mother is a Protestant who doesn't agree with the Catholic Church in any regard. I'm not religious, so that doesn't bother me, but, for some reason, even she agrees to be Irish for just one day in September.

                                                              Sorry to spam the thread with, admittedly, irrelevant deaths, but this is the only place I thought of to post this. Years, maybe even a decade, ago, I was a member of a site called NotreDameFans.com (was that it? I just remember that markmaysucks.com would redirect to the homepage) and posted on the forums there. I never migrated anywhere. Go Irish!

My maternal grandfather died late last year. Although I saw him frequently, and I hate to say this, his death didn't tear me apart. I loved him, yes. No doubt about it, but he was my grandfather. He didn't exactly define anything I do in life. Having said that, he's a graduate of the University of Michigan, and was a huge Wolverine. My father and I never watched football with him, even though we both knew he watched Michigan every Saturday. In fact, my father and I both hold the controversial opinion that Notre Dame should schedule Michigan State over Michigan on a yearly basis, but I digress. Having said that, with the Michigan v Notre Dame game looming overhead, my view has shifted drastically. My mother has, foolishly, agreed to watch the game with me. She knows that I haven't been able to do anything Notre Dame related since the death of my father. Any time I watch or read anything related to Notre Dame football, I can't help myself and I begin to cry. I can only imagine how difficult the position I've put her in. Unlike my father, a Catholic who, at the end of the day, would eventually wish for the Catholic team to win, my mother is a Protestant who doesn't agree with the Catholic Church in any regard. I'm not religious, so that doesn't bother me, but, for some reason, even she agrees to be Irish for just one day in September.

                                                                Sorry to spam the thread with, admittedly, irrelevant deaths, but this is the only place I thought of to post this. Years, maybe even a decade, ago, I was a member of a site called NotreDameFans.com (was that it? I just remember that markmaysucks.com would redirect to the homepage) and posted on the forums there. I never migrated anywhere. Go Irish!

I've been to home and away basketball games. Throughout my entire life, my dad and I always shared a Notre Dame bond. In the late 40s, he and his two brothers were the first generation of his Irish family to be born in America. I'll never forget the stories of Notre Dame he told me. He spoke of greatness. Not just championships, but of an underdog upsetting greats like Oklahoma (which, he listened to on a radio with my grandmother) or UCLA in basketball. I never missed a Notre Dame football game with him. When we lived on the East Coast, if we couldn't order the game on ESPN+, we'd listen to it online, which only happened a handful of times. I remember him telling me of Faust getting destroyed by Johnson, only for Parseghian to comment that "Notre Dame will rise again." I remember, the only time abandoning the Irish, going to my room during the 2006 ND @ MSU game, only to run out, screaming in glee, when Lambert returned an INT for a TD. During my college years, away from home, we stayed in touch during the games. And if I couldn't watch the game live, we agreed to ignore football for the day and have the experience simultaneously. To put this in perspective, we had numerous Saturday's where we spent the entire day watching the sport. So, our interest went beyond ND football. We both liked college football, period.

But, regardless of that, we both also believe, every year, that this is the year. Regardless of the coach, I believe we will win out. My faith, much like his, will never die out. Like every season, I believe this is the season. Go Irish!

                                                                      Also, in terms of Notre Dame basketball, if anyone has more information, even if just the box score, of Chris Quinn's Irish leading the upset against UConn in overtime, please share it. From what I remember, Chris Quinn was our PG and our leader, and we were gigantic underdogs. I want to say UConn was #1, but if that were actually the case, I could probably find video highlights easier. I remember listening to the game on radio with my father, and, at some point, it was mentioned that ESPNews would carry one of the OTs, and we pulled off the upset. In black jerseys. Being a basketball player, rather than a football player, this game meant quite a bit to me.

                                                                      Edit: I'm also sorry for derailing the thread. I understand that it should be kept on topic.

Apparently she's been fighting cancer for some time. Aretha just had a wicked set of pipes on her and was born to sing. She could sing a telephone book and make it sound good. Like ACamp, I can't think of her without thinking of Otis too. Both had that raw gospel sound and HUGE stage presence. What a voice Aretha had. We lost a true music legend today.
