    Jim was always the guy that ended up wrestling the python or what have you while Marlon looked on. RIP Mr. Fowler.

    Best story about him was his goal in every sketch and every show was to make Harvey Korman lose it. He almost always succeeded... in fact in the famous Dentist sketch, he not only made Korman laugh... he made him laugh so hard he wet himself.

    HOF Quarterback and Green Bay Packers icon, Bart Starr. age 85.

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/2...-starr-dies-85

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/2...yer-ever-lived

    From the link immediately above:

    He would endure profound tragedy in his life, losing his son Bret to cocaine addiction at age 24 in 1988, when he found his boy's body on the floor of his home. Only Starr didn't quit, because he would never quit on anything. He was a fighter, the son of a tough-love World War II veteran and Air Force master sergeant who lost his favorite child, Hilton, to tetanus when the boy was 11, and who didn't think Bart would amount to much. Starr was the 200th overall pick in the 1956 NFL draft, a non-prospect who was benched during his final, winless season at Alabama and who was only drafted in the 17th round because the school's basketball coach had a connection with the Packers' front office.

    Starr played 10 postseason games for Lombardi, and he won nine of them. He willed himself into the Hall of Fame; no quarterback has ever been drafted as late as Starr and still made it to Canton.

    RIP Bill... his treatment by Red Sox fans where he had to move from the Boston area due to harassment over one play is why I hate all things Boston sports related.

    Bill was a former Spokane Indian (when they were AAA). One helluva professional hitter.

    RIP Billy.

    Singer Leon Redbone Dies at 69
    In a nod to how Redbone sought to exist outside of time, much less current musical styles, his death announcement gave his age as 127.
