Kobe Bryant died
« on: January 28, 2020, 02:39:17 AM »
Anyone hear the news?  Sad stuff.  A legend and one of the greatest basketball players of this generation.  I liken it to Bruce Lee dying so young.  Both accomplished so much yet passed far too early.  RIP

Very tragic. Especially sad for his wife and remaining children. His daughter Gigi was also killed. As were 7 other people.

The pilot was definitely at fault.

From only a few years back there is a commercial where she is American tackled on a football field.

Thank you for the laughs and insights. She was quite the lady!

More Death?

Do I even bring up that Harry Reid died?

I debated saying something about him, but
I think it's better to say nothing.

NFL Coach Dan Reeves, also.  I'd put him miles ahead of Harry Reid.

An excellent player and coach both, RIP.

Quote

"Legendary NFL coach Dan Reeves, who ranks 10th all-time in wins and reached nine Super Bowls as a player and coach, died on Saturday morning at the age of 77.

"Dan Reeves had a legendary NFL career as both a player and a coach,” Giants co-owner John Mara said in a statement. “He made an indelible mark on the league and all of the people he played with [and] coached and worked alongside. He was one of the finest men I have ever been around in this business. Our deepest condolences to [his wife] Pam and the entire Reeves family.”
