He's been rumoured to be dead about 5 times now. I'm sure all that info was written long ago.

Oh, and there's the time. So in less than an hour, the whole (civilized tweeting, NSMB'ing) world knows of one man's passing.

RIP.

Also he should have made it into the HHoF this year. I'm sure he will be inducted next year but he should have been around to accept the honor.

Being an agoraphobic adrenaline junkie would be pretty convenient, because you could get your rush from just going to the store to get some milk instead of having to jump off a mountain or out of an airplane.

they also call me "balloon"

They should have done it when he was still alive; completely class-less of them not to.

Another EPIC FAIL in league management. Total crap he didn't get in this year. So disappointing and unnecessary. Rest In Peace.

That's the kind of thing that happens when you have an American accountant (Bettman) running the NHL.
