I got the news from my mom, who from her home in St. Louis saw the broadcast ahead of us on the West Coast. "It's sad," she said. "But he wasn't very good." As usual, mom sums things up succinctly. At least nobody has to worry about any scheduling conflicts should the NBA season manage to start on time, we'll all have fun busting out "Danceatron" references throughout the season, and a cancer charity will get a nice donation courtesy of World Peace.
