Another hero of mine gone aged 87. Mr Arnold Palmer.

You think guys like Arnie,who you've known about for as long as you can remember and who you've followed your entire life, will live forever, will just always kind of be there and when they go it makes you realise how temporary we all are. For me, when guys like Arnie go, it's a genuine feeling that a tiny little piece of me is no longer. That part of my life is gone forever.

If guys like these can't cheat the reaper, then what chance do mere mortals like us have.

Becoming on anything they want was a task for Jose Fernandez. And he got an American Dream. 1 - defecting from Cuba and becoming a US citizen and 2 - become a Baseball player. But sadly - it only lasted 3 years.

The Marlins pitcher was in a boat outing before officials confirmed that he and 2 other people were killed in the accident.

Our thoughts and prayers go to his family and to his girlfriend who sadly is expecting their 1st child.

Jose was 24.

Former Jr. Welterweight champion Aaron Pryor - whose career was careened with a downward spiral by drug use - passed away this past Sunday due to heart disease. The "Cincinatti Hawk" will be well known for his rivalry with the late Alexis Arguello for the 2 bouts along with a controversy of a bottle.

During the mid '80s and early '90s, Pryor was ordered to undergo treatment after pleading no contest for possession of drug paraphilia and a smoking pipe. In 1993, Pryor was officially declared drug free and in 1996, he was inducted to the Boxing's Hall of Fame. He also began his career as a spokesperson spreading anti-drug messages.

This was the very boxer who would have faced Mexican boxing great - The late Salvador Sanchez.

Our hears go out to his family.


Pryor was 60. Just 11 days before his 61st birthday.

Just off the presses.

A Brazilian soccer team that became the greatest Cinderella story in the history of Brazilian Professional soccer were aboard in a plane that crashed in the outskirts of Medellin, Colombia after departing Viru Viru, Bolivia.

And just last week in the South America Cup, Brazilian team Chapecoense defeated Argentinian club San Lorenzo in the semifinals. And they were scheduled to face off Colombian team Atletico Nacional in the 1 of 2 legs in the final right before the tragic accident. There were 81 people on board the Bolivian airline La Mia flight # LMI-CP2933 (72 passengers and 9 crew members).

(UPDATE: 76 people onboard are confirmed killed - There were only 5 survivors.)

The soccer world mourns.
