In Topic: Ideas and possibilities for 2008

I've searched the site for him and can't find any mentions of him, but Art Modell may be up for consideration in 2008. For those outside the US, Art was the owner of the American Football Cleveland Browns/Baltimore Ravens. Several years ago, Modell suffered a stroke and has been less and less visible publicly. I was talking to my father the other day and told me that he made a concrete delivery to Modell's mausoleum (which to date has cost US$1.5 million, which these days is about 100k in real money). It's no indication of further declining health, but it peaked my interest.

As far as a UK obit, I'm pretty sure he won't get one since New York Giants owner Wellington Mara didn't get a UK obit that I can find. If you're in a death pool with wider criteria for points, Modell might be worth a look.

Search for Fossett could solve decades-old mysteries

It took a rich guy (possibly) crashing his plane just outside the middle of nowhere to find up to a couple hundred old plane crash sites.

It took one sick twist to put together a piece of Lego art like that...

I love it.

............................................i make another list up later

Don't even mention Montel. I've had MS longer than he has and I'm far from circling the drain. It's not a death sentence for anyone...unless someone really pisses me off about it.

"The 8th wildest superstar in WWE history", Dewey Robertson, AKA "The Missing Link", was hospitalised last week. His Wiki page states he is in the final stages of cancer.

His face has gone from green to a lovely shade of blue. Sad, I actually liked watching his antics in WWF and WCCW.
