    John Prine a great singer songwriter died from complications from the covid19 virus at age 73. He was an old time troubadour all his songs told a story. Sam Stone, Christmas In Prison, Bruised Orange, Unwed Fathers and Angel From Montgomery are all songs worth the time. RIP John and thank you for your music.

    Before my time too. Mr Tiger, I believe they called him. He was a member of the 3,000 hit club when it was much more exclusive.

    Kaline was a great member of the Tigers, it's funny because I learned how to spell alkaline batteries because of his name! On your point of the 3000 hit club being more exclusive 32 players have reached 3000 hits. 15,213 players have appeared in a Major League game. That equals .2 percent of all Major League players getting to that plateau. So yes I get your point but it is still pretty exclusive.

    Interesting that James Drury is part of a current PSA about the corona virus on the INSP station. I just saw it today and it was posted on April 3rd on YouTube just days before his passing.

    That was weird seeing him on a current PSA posthumously. He looked to be in good health during that shoot.

    Also NFL Hall of Famer Bobby Mitchell and NFL Hall of Very Good Tim Brown passed away this week. Most have not heard of Tim Brown but he was a very good running back for the Eagles as well as an actor, I don't know if Bobby Mitchell died because of the virus but Tim Brown died from complications of Dementia and James Drury's cause of death was due to "natural causes"

    Former Cubs and Padres 2nd baseman Glenn Beckert died last week. There seems to be a sudden rash of players/celebrities passing away this month. I gotta wonder if any of these are because of the Coronavirus. I know most of these guys were in their late 70s-mid 80s but there have been more deaths than usual for well known people in recent weeks.

    Don't think it was mentioned in here previously, but I seen a week or two ago that Tom Dempsey had passed. He was the kicker that only had half a foot and held the record for the longest time for the longest NFL field goal kicked in a game.

    Mike "Mad Dog"Curtis, former middle linebacker of the 60s and 70s Baltimore Colts passed away yesterday at age 77. He was a TOUGH player and I'm very surprised he is not in the Pro Football HOF. Below is a 4 minute video by NFL films on his career.

    Speaking of linebackers, former Bills linebacker form the 1960s Mike Stratton passed away a few weeks ago at age 78. A few weeks ago I traded for a 1965 Topps PSA NM 7 card of his. If you know anything on the condition sensitivity of the 1965 Tops Football cards, it is hard to believe it only graded as a 7. Man that is one nice card when it comes to condition.
