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.

I saw ESPN had a tribute to the young Purdue fan Tyler Trent. I first saw his story when Purdue beat the Buckeye's this year. What a great young man and it was nice to see how the Purdue program and their players embraced Tyler and his story. We tend to hear only negative stories about NCAA athletes but more do a lot of good in their communities.. 

Sad to see cancer take the life of such an inspirational young man..

He was great when he would appear on Letterman as Super Dave. Slow office day, going to have to hit youtube and watch some of them this afternoon.

Also liked him as Marty Funkhauser on Curb your Enthusiasm. Funny guy. Had to look up his real name: 

Bob Einstein
