He's colder than that, now.

When DFW died, Chorozzo made a disrespectful comment, and I slowly willed him into the grave over it. I didn't love Prince less than I loved DFW.

jesus would somebody fucking just die already so we can get a break in the music snobbery here?

I still say the single greatest baseball play ever was
For me, it was a slower than Christmas Sid Bream scoring from second base on Francisco Cabrera's hit, beating out a throw from Barry Bonds to win game 7 of the '92 NLCS. It sent the Braves to the series and Pittsburgh to 18 straight losing seasons and counting.Watch it HERE, (includes Skip Caray's call of the play -- possibly the best ever).
is better audio of the call.Of course, I'm biased, since I was there. Here are a couple of pics I took of it:DSC01615.jpgDSC01616.jpg

I think it's a joke because nobody could be as bad as you appear to be at understanding people. You got mad at BG when he was simply spouting random stuff for the sole purpose of annoying you, and now you're doing it again.

I had never heard of him, but your post prompted me to read about him. The whole story is very sad. I really feel for his family.

For some reason I was thinking he was the Triumph the Insult Comic Dog guy...but that's Robert Smigel. I've heard of Schimmel but I can't say I know who he was. Obviously.

His stand up was really funny. It wasn't earth shattering, like in a ground-breaking, sorta revolutionary way. But, more along the lines of just really obviously funny stuff.

The mental image of Glenn Shadix falling down and hitting his head really makes me laugh.

I thought the same thing. There's something to his story that makes me believe that there is a god, and that god is a son of a bitch

He was known for his infectious smile and good sense of humor.His death is the latest in a series of tragedies for the Broncos in recent years. Cornerback Darrent Williams was slain in a drive-by shooting on New Year's Day 2007, and three months later backup running back Damien Nash collapsed and died after a charity basketball game in St. Louis.McKinley was a fifth-round draft choice out of South Carolina in 2009. He remains South Carolina's all-time leading receiver with 207 catches for 2,781 yards. He returned to the school earlier this month, watching the Gamecocks beat Georgia 17-6 and visiting with his college coach, Steve Spurrier.
