Damn..

 

Watching WTBS back in the 80s with Ernie Johnson Sr, Skip Caray, and Pete Van Weiren many a night with some terrible Braves teams. 

 

RIP

I'm probably showing my age here, but I can't ever remember the Braves being bad. Still having a hard time realizing Bobby Cox isn't managing them anymore.

Go back and look at the NL Standings from 1983-1990..Bad is an understatement. 

 

I'd say we got Cable in 1982 or '83, and WTBS literally showed every game. We had WOR, which had about 50 Mets games, but no WGN, and HTS wasn't around yet. ESPN didn't have Baseball, so we got one game on NBC every Saturday. So it was a lot of Bad Braves baseball.

I know, remember reading that Ted Turner told Dale Murphy when he asked for a raise, "We finished last with you, we'll finish last without you."

All over the Twitter. Found unconscious and not breathing at his home around noon PT. Shit.

 

EDIT: Apparent cause is asphyxiation....possible suicide.

When he was promoting his new TV series on late night shows about a year ago he was talking about a recent relapse with alcoholism that he had. Looked pretty world weary and uncomfortable to me.

Robin Williams live on Broadway is the hardest I have ever laughed at anything ever. Terrible. They interrupted the Os game on the radio to break the news.

Robin Williams was funny as hell, but this was always my favorite.
