    Comic actor Bill Daily died September 4 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He was 91 and during those 91 years, he was on television a ridiculous amount of time. Though best known for his sidekick roles on I Dream of Jeannie and The Bob Newhart Show, he was also a frequent guest on other shows and may have been in more unsold pilots than anyone else who ever lived.

    Dissent, insight and contextual discussion makes a website 'sticky' and engaging - not just predictable, safe position fanboyism. Monoculture is uninteresting and lacks intellectual depth.

    Former Packers fullback Jim Taylor died early Saturday morning, the team announced. Taylor was 83.

    The Pro Football Hall of Famer rushed for more than 1,000 yards over five straight seasons in Green Bay, rushing for a league-high 1,474 yards in 1962 when the Packers went 13-1 before winning the NFL championship. Taylor was named the league's MVP by The Associated Press the same year.

    OK... not a "celebrity" per se...

    But dude defined what a badass does during a war:

    Jiachim Ronneberg, 99

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/22/o...berg-dead.html


    Quick syopsis:

    10 guys go into Nazi Norway in the middle of winter. Ski 35 miles... climb down a ravine... sneak into a hydro-electric plant making heavy water... blow that #### up... Ski for almost 200 miles while being hunted by about 3000 Nazis. When asked about it... says it was one of his best weekends skiing.

    Bad... ass.

    John A. Ziegler Jr., who as president of the National Hockey League from 1977 to 1992 oversaw a major expansion and a merger with the World Hockey Association, died on Thursday. He was 84.

    The league announced his death but did not say where he died or specify the cause.

    A lawyer, Mr. Ziegler was the Red Wings’ vice president and general counsel from 1970 to 1977 and was elected chairman of the National Hockey League’s board of governors in 1976. A year later he became the fourth president in the league’s history, replacing Clarence Campbell, who had held the position since 1946.

    NOBLESVILLE, Ind. -- Paul Zimmerman, the longtime Sports Illustrated NFL writer known as "Dr. Z" for his analytical approach, died Thursday. He was 86.

    NBC Sports football writer Peter King confirmed Zimmerman's death. King worked with Zimmerman at Sports Illustrated, and completed Zimmerman's autobiography, "Dr. Z: The Lost Memoirs of an Irreverent Football Writer."

    Zimmerman had three strokes in 2008 that ended his writing career after 29 years as Sports Illustrated's lead pro football writer.

    Here's a link to Sports Illustrated's web site wherein they have culled some of Dr. Z's best stuff from their archives: https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/11/01/pa...d-best-stories
