Wow. He was funny.

I though he was frikkin hilarious when I was a kid. Reminds me a lot of the pseudo intellectuals I've met in real life as an adult.

This is supposed to be for famous people.  Besides, I never saw him the one time I was in the Silver Slipper.  :rimshot:

Mike Ilitch, Tigers' owner.  Too bad he didn't get that championship, but it wasn't for lack of trying.

Not quite as famous as others, but since we probably have some Syracuse folks on the board, Fab Melo passed away in Brazil at age 26.

George "The Animal" Steele has died, he was 79.  Famous for eating turnbuckles, for most of his career he only wrestled in the summer as he was a high school PE teacher.

Went to my niece's family's home yesterday.    She explained to me who Paxton was and I explained to her who Wapner was.
