I’m surprised that nobody posted about the former star Gina Lolobrigida’s passing. I remember watching her when I was a boy.

I really don't just go out, and look for the dead Gary.

He over reached constantly, and a good boxer would have took him out.
I know of several golden gloves boxers that could have beat him.
Personally I was never good at boxing, my shoulders was never made for it, I could take a punch is all, but knew some good ones in the past.
I did learn how to read peoples moves quite well, he was a wide open fighter that a good boxer would take him out pretty easily.

Here’s one of Gerrie Coetzee’s best performances. This one being against former champion and Olympic gold medalist Leon Spinks.

LOL, Spinks was not a great boxer either, when he beat Ali Ali wasn't all there that night.
As I said every dog has it's day.
Now Michel Spinks was a good fighter, a lot better than his brother.

I don't know too much about some of the lesser names in boxing, but now, hockey...
Bobby hull was one of those houshold name hockey legends from the 60's and 70's. More and more of these guys have been passing every year.
Apparently, off ice, the guy could be a real jerk.

When I was a little boy I thought he was my favourite player though I hardly knew anything about him.

:think: He looks familiar :think:
Not a lot of hockey fans here, we have basketball, and American football. I hate both sports.

Squiggy is gone. I think he died of MS a few years ago.

Interesting, I didn't know that he had that.
I saw him in an interview a decade or so back, he seemed about the same as in the show, but old, and dressed nice.
He didn't look like someone with MS, just creepy like he always was.
Well, I hope his family was alright, and was happy his suffering was over, sometimes it can be a relief for them even if sorrowful.

Supposedly he had the disease for decades but hid it really well from almost everyone.

MS is one of those illnesses that affect some people a lot quicker and a lot worse than others. RW has or had MS and I always wonder how she is doing or if she is even still alive. The way she just shut her forum down and then disappeared from the forum world kinda tells me that she isn't doing too good and might not even be above ground.
