Leon Redbone died on the 30th. rip.

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But a skunkweed will always be a skunkweed and instantly recognizable.

Leon Redbone died on the 30th. rip.

Considering that his father was Paganini and his mother was Jenny Lind, his age was such that by most scoring systems he will cost points to whoever drafted him. :)

We laugh at gypsies, fortune tellers, and horoscopes, yet we trust baseball prospect lists.

I ended up not putting him on due to reports that things were "stable" this winter, but Cameron Boyce obviously took a downfall. The Disney Channel actor was just 20 when he passed away in his sleep Friday evening.

Missed this at the time, and I didn't consider him this year, but had in the past, but Jared Lorenzen, aka the Hefty Lefty, passed away July 3rd at just 38 years old.
