    It did seem apropos

    He did not look good when he was in public...he had that faraway gaze in his eyes. But he lived a long & eventful life and bled Dodger blue for the majority of that life. Listen to the end.

    Never knew she was in Bond, but yeah...knew her as Midge on That 70s Show. She did have great comedic timing, very entertaining. The original Lori from that show passed too, both gone too soon.

    I'm the opposite lol. Totally forgot she was an Angel, not a big comedy guy (current shows), but remembered her from Bond. She was on some other series I liked back in the 70s or 80s, but can't put my finger on it.

    Quotes by both Bird and Russell about what an outstanding gentleman he was (Bird - the man I try to be but don’t have enough time to ever work at it enough and Russell - if there is one man I want one of my sons to be like it’s him) speak to that as successful as he was in basketball he was just as successful in life off the court. He and Heinson both gone within about a month.

    KC Jones, legendary player and coach of the Celtics, has passed away at the age of 88. Jones won several titles as a teammate of Bill Russell for the Celtics, then later became the Celtics head coach in the 80's during the Bird era, guiding them to 2 more titles. Very few men were more successful in the basketball world than Jones.

    God bless you Coach, thanks for all the lessons and RIP.

    Cheers and as always, Go Irish!!

    2020 has taken a lot from me and close friends. Posted this earlier and it keeps on coming. Lost both of my coaches this year. "Rel" passed away a few days ago. Alzheimer's is cruel. Far more than a coach, he was a wonderful man and helped me become the person I am. I hope I live to his expectations.

    Very happy that I contributed to build a new football facility that will be named in their honor... while they were both alive, to recognize their contributions.

    I won't muddy this thread again. God Bless you Coach Delbello and let Perpetual Light shine Upon You. Thanks for everything!!

    Cheers and Go Irish!!

    A favorite author. Each time I discover a new book that I had not read, I think of Graham Greene. Le Carre (Cornwell) so brilliantly presents us with his characters facing moral choices in a gray, largely unknown to us, world. I'll bet a number of his other books will also be made into movies. Farewell and thank you.

    The films of his books attracted some of our greatest actors.

    Greene was roided up during his time in the NFL. Wouldn’t surprise me if that contributed to his early death.

    Mentioned to My wife he passed. Her comment, “I saw that but didn’t realize he was black.” Lol
    Died from COVID-19. They suspect he picked it up last month when receiving the lifetime achievement award. Watch the video. He didn’t look anywhere near 86. RIP Charlie and when you get to heaven, Kiss that angel good morning.

    Yup. Very good and humble guy. Didn't see color. Broke traditional stereotypes. And embraced by all the red neck racist country fans. He made a comment like "I didn't know I had to be white to sing country. I just used my voice to sing what I like". Huge loss to Country music, and music in general.

    I have a picture of me & my Dad as he gave Allen a Lucky Strike while he was on deck during a July 4th game vs the O's in '72. 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.

    RIP and thanks for the memories.
