RIP indeed.

He and Woody put the "piss and vinegar" in this rivalry game comin' up tomorrow.

I bet his mad as hell he's not gonna see it on the big screen he was speaking about earlier this week.

He's probably got a seat next to Woody, watchin' the game from up above...

I was so sad to hear this! He used to come into the restaurant i worked in in AnnArbor when I lived up that way. I always liked him.

And when he died I thought, 'Wow, how old could he be?" I was remembering him the age I saw him at... and that was more than 20 years ago.
