Celebrity RIP

Yes, the New England Patriots quarterback lost his grandmother.  She lived to be 94.  This quote just says it all...

Quote
Brady said he didn't think his grandmother's death would be a distraction heading into Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Thanks Tom.  I've got a bundle riding on you guys. You'd better remain focused.

Tom Brady's Grandmother:

1)  Was a bad role model for kids.
2)  Glorified unresponsible behavior on MTV.
3)  Had a mysterious bag of white powder in her stomach.

I'm glad you are feeling judgemental today because so am I. You can feel how you like about the name invoked here but the direction in which the conversation in this thread and this forum goes is my responsiblity and frankly I'm utterly tired of the constant thread crapping going on here.

If you would like to start a debate (and I do mean debate because if it gets anywhere near as childish as this thread has gotten I'll be suspending accounts) about the personal lives of public figures and how they are glorified/presented, do as I suggest and start a separate thread to discuss the issue. In the meantime I'll be pruning this thread back to the essentials and get things back on track. If anyone decides to post another off-topic comment that I percieve is detrimental to the discussion here, you will lose your membership. Final warning.

Don't worry. I didn't prune out the heart of the discussion here Jeremy but I did remove some comments I felt were not necessary and a personal issue that was moved to the realm of PM's anyway.

EDIT: Also Jeremy, you should not need to justify being a fan of Brady's grandma nor should anybody else on this forum. That is not what this thread was initially about, nor what it should have been. If you want to keep talking Brady's grandma or her rememberance as a human being then please do so. As I said, let's move things along to where they need to be and if there needs to be a discussion on the glorification of public figures, another thread can be started to discuss as much.

Thanks for the link. I wonder how much Ben-gay she actually had in her tummy, and how much seeped into her system along with the painkillers.

Little Bitch, thanks for sharing your thoughts as well.

Hunter S.Thompson commits suicide.

One of my favorites. But, of course, not the best role model for the kids.

Nine years ago I was HST for Halloween.  No kidding.

There's a real vacuum in our culture with the absense of such renegade voices as Zappa, Bill Hicks, and now HST.  Their works have inspired countless writers and performers, but the shoes may be too big to fill.

It is all well and good for children and acid freaks to still believe in Santa Claus -- but it is still a profoundly morbid day for us working professionals. It is unsettling to know that one out of every twenty people you meet on Xmas will be dead this time next year....Some people can accept this, and some can't. That is why God made whiskey, and also why Wild Turkey comes in $300 shaped canisters during most of the Christmas season.

RIP Mitch Hedberg

Mitch Hedberg dead at 37



Bummer. One of my favorite comedians. He was on XM a lot. Looked nothing like what I thought.

(not a good role model for the children)

Heart problems and heroin.  Always a healthy combination.

Sad.  I've heard this guy a lot on Sirius .  He's pretty funny, and I'll agree with the comparison to Steven Wright.
