RIP The Iron Sheik. One of the great wrestling heels of all time.


His A&E Biography just aired maybe a month ago? Top-5 heel for sure.

Former NFL receiver Homer Jones, 82. One of the fastest men in football during a career that spanned from 1964-'71 (mostly with the Giants), his 22.3 yards per reception are still a league record. Jones is also credited with being the first player to "spike" the football after a touchdown, a response to the league's policy of a $500 fine for tossing the ball into the stands.

RIP former Oriole relief pitcher Dick Hall, who was 92.

 

The term control artist fit Hall well.

Big guy, too. Stood about 6-5 or 6-6. 

 

Hall was the winning pitcher of the first ALCS game ever played when the Orioles beat Minnesota, 4-3, in 12 innings in Game 1 of the 1969 championship series.

I saw a tweet from Jim Palmer.  Hall and Palmer were good friends and in fact Hall was the godfather to Jim's oldest child.    Hall was a good reliever.  He did not throw the ball hard enough to break a window, but he had pinpoint control.

Hall is also the last Swarthmore graduate to play in the Major Leagues. As you might have guessed, there aren't very many.

Yeah, off the coast of Destin, FL of all places. That's the Gulf of Mexico. This time of year the water's got to be 85 degrees. The rip current status down there is currently low, which is essentially non-existent. 

 

I'm wondering if he got stung by a jellyfish or something. Maybe something caused a cardiac event.

Actually it sounds like they have had heavy rip currents there recently.

Weird.

 

The NWS apparently disagrees. Their update as of 3:07 AM last night essentially says there was a low risk of rip currents on the day a (former) professional athlete drowns.

Currents in that part of the gulf are notoriously random and strong.

But, take it from me, there are so many odd and bizarre ways to die on the water. I’ve been shocked more times than I can count.

At least 10 people have died in FL waters recently.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?
