Joe Kapp (mentioned here by Windsor http://www.deathlist...c=7756&p=165775), who played for Calgary Stampeders, BC Lions as well as the Minnesota Vikings, announces he has Alzheimers. http://www.fox9.com/.../86955979-story

 

Edit: In passing, perhaps I should mention that Angelo Mosca who had the fist fight mentioned in Windsor's post is also still alive and reportedly also has Alzheimers. http://www.thestar.c...alzheimers.html

He chose the right to go, didn't he? Super Bowl 50 day!

I can understand why a composer would choose to give up on life knowing he'd have to listen to fucking Coldplay at halftime.

Former Arizona Cardinals personnel executive George Boone died Sunday at age 77, the team announced on Thursday.
Boone spent 28 season with the Cardinals, serving as assistant player personnel director from 1968-72, director of player personnel from 1973-91 and later as a scout from 2001-05.

Now I know my British pals don't care a rat's ass about the NFL, but this, just before the last playoff game before the Super Bowl! It's kismet, bet the farm on Arizona to win it all.

The Cardinals V Panthers game will most likely be postponed due to the storm that's hitting that part of the country.

Phillips was one of those self destructive types that make you think "I should have known" when you hear of his passing.
