His character's name on M*A*S*H definitely wouldn't fly these days.

And...oh my god...the comments on that Fox News story. Whooooboy...

This is one of those things where it makes total sense in hindsight. He really faded behind Hal for a while recently.

Was he the player who laid out the fan running on the field with a clothesline in the NFL Films footage?

I think so. His son Ryan was a star lacrosse player at UVA (8x all pro, National teamer, etc) 2 years younger than me. Smaller than his dad but still smashed people on the field. Ended up as head coach at Vermont before stepping down to take a job at a fancy post grad school in CT.

One of the greats - his music is occasionally fantastic, but as Fela's drummer, he played on some of the greatest music ever made. (IMO)

Sam would go left when you forced him that way on defense. But he made all those 12- to 17-footers, too.

And Josh is not exaggerating when he says Sam called everything.

To be sure, he’s not the guy who sang for Bad Company when they were churning out the hits they play on classic rock stations. That was Paul Rodgers. I was a Bad Company fan back in the day, and I’ve never heard of this guy.

'Double Rainbow Guy' Paul Vasquez has died
Paul "Bear" Vasquez lived simply. He sheltered on the side of a mountain outside Yosemite National Park, grew his own food and woke up every morning to one of the most magnificent views in California.

The world may never have known him if not for a spectacular double rainbow.
Vasquez, the portly man whose cries of exaltation at a double rainbow turned him into a viral star, died at 57 on Saturday. The Mariposa County Coroner's Office confirmed his death to CNN.

"Bear" lived in relative solitude for much of his life. But his sincere love of nature -- and rainbows in particular -- endeared him to millions.

Loved this part:
Mr. Storen never retired. His most recent job, in his 80s, was selling sports caps at Lids sportswear shops in Atlanta.

Phil May, singer for seminal, riotous British rock band, The Pretty Things.
Phil May, the frontman of The Pretty Things, has died aged 75 after suffering complications from emergency hip surgery.
A representative of the rock 'n' roll band confirmed he died on Friday morning at a Kings Lynn hospital.

May had fallen off his bicycle earlier in the week.

"Very sad news, he was a very talented guy and he will be sorely missed. I'm shocked," tweeted Kinks guitarist Dave Davies.

The Pretty Things' 1968 album SF Sorrow is credited as one of the first real rock opera concept albums.

They were cited as an influence by a wide range of artists from David Bowie to Jimi Hendrix to Kasabian.
\
Originally from Dartford, Kent, May formed the band in 1963 with guitarist Dick Taylor, a former bass player with an early incarnation of The Rolling Stones, and both bands were an integral part of the London blues-rock explosion.

As his music developed in a more progressive psych-rock direction in the late 60s, singer and lyricist May became a leading countercultural figure, known for his long hair, drug-taking and bisexuality.

Damn, been catching up on WTF podcasts, and she was living with/dating Marc Maron, so he was talking about her all the time. Weird that my thought is to want to reach out to him. I guess after 10 years of listening to him, I feel like I know him.
