If they do a TV special this weekend about this it'll have to be a Breaking Bad like marathon. I can't remember a year this bad.

The website I pulled this from indicated a slight uptick in total numbers.  I think what makes this year seem to bad is how many icons of the 70s and 80s passed.  It was concentrated in that era it seems.

It's funny, we were discussing this last night and Ali seemed the consensus most well know who passed away, but on going over the list a couple felt Bowie, or Prince may have held up pretty good against Ali. When Howe's name was mentioned, I would bet, in Canada, his loss was more important than Ali, and in Britain, maybe George Martin's passing might eclipse Ali. I guess it is where you call home to feel whose loss was more devastating.

May they all RIP.
I HATE TO INCLUDE THE WORD NASTY< BUT THAT IS PART OF BEING A WINNING FOOTBALL TEAM.

Well put Lenn. I think a case can be made for any of those you mentioned, and maybe even a few others, to be at the top of the list. I'm glad tomorrow is the last day of 2016.

RIP indeed.
