Completely agree -- this year can end as quickly as possible as far as I am concerned!!
RIP RBG -- all politics aside, she was an extremely influential voice on the Supreme Court since the Clinton Administration.
And just like that, 2020 strikes again -- RIP Gale Sayers, passing away today at age 77. HOF'r with the Bears. My first recollection of him was his portrayal in Brian's Song by Billy Dee Williams.
This is just shocking with 4 mainstays of the 1960s and 70s passing away in such quick succession. Seaver, Brock, Larry Wilson and now Gale Sayers all no doubt HOFers who all made annual appearneces in sports cards. Seaver and Sayers passed away from Dementia, while Lou Brock had lost a leg to Diabetis and had a terrible battle with cancer. I assume those were the causes of his death. I have not heard anything about the cause of larry Wilson's death though.
And sadly another pro wrestler passes away before his time with Joe Laurenitis (akaRoad Warrior Animal). That may be the toughtest "sport" of all to survive with the beatings these guys take day after day, week after week, year after year. When you look at the premature deaths in professional wrestling, football seems to be a safe sport in comparison!!
Definitely agree Jeff, and Joe (Animal) was James' dad, who played for the Rams when they were in STL. James was one of the stars of the defense, and was a really nice guy, I met him at training camp several times and he always stayed and signed for everyone, talked to us, took photos, etc. All of this was in the HUMID summer that we always have in this area. I heard his dad was a real nice guy too, I never met him, but generally the apple doesnt fall far from the tree!
Rough stretch for Cardinals HOFers with Brock and now Gibson passing away .
