I know this was covered in the breaking news thread but with all the other stuff being discussed on that thread it is easy to miss things like this. Thought it might be a good idea to have a separate thread for the passing of famous people. Star trek legend Leonard Nimoy has passed away at the age of 83 from complications due to C.O.P.D.

Yea Heenan was okay. I go back as far as when Bob Luce handled championship wrestling produced and broadcasted from Chicago and the amphitheater. I remember once when Heenan had a match against "Terrible Teddy" the wrestling bear. Man did everyone get a laugh out of that.

Buddy and I went to wrestling match in Green Bay back in the day while we were at UW-Oshkosh.  After the matches, went to the bar inthe hotel the wrestlers stayed at.  All the "faces" would pass by and have nothing to do with the public.  The "heels" sat at the bar and shot the sh@t with everyone.  Bobby was one who sat in the bar.  Nice guy.  Pretty funny.

Bobby the brain came to Lake Emily one fine summer day.  A bunch of us were hanging around the park.  King Harley Race was there with his family.  His son was our age and was hanging out playing in the field.  A limo pulls up.  We ask King Races son who it is.  He just says it is a couple of his dad's friends.  Well, it was Bobby the Brain along with Andre the Giant.  That is my Bobby memory.  He was very nice in person.

Looks like he died young, only 72.  As youngsters my bro and I would watch all star wrestling out of GreenBay every saturday night at 1030.  Heenan was the guy we loved to hate. Now, my brother and I figured we were pretty smart since we knew this wrestling stuff was fake. We never did figure out that we were supposed to hate Heenan by marketing design
