:(... Although I'm personally a Laker hater, you really hate to see this. Great voice for the game, pretty innovative too.

He was THE best, hands down. I felt horrible reading about it this morning and will miss him greatly.

And props to (Laker Hata) CRZ for putting the RIP Chick Hearn on the front of / today.

BTW, he apparently got the nickname when some of his friends, as a prank, gave him a mystery present, which turned out to be a chicken.

You're all so WONDERFUL. Why did they ever have to remove you from the continuity? You'd have made for MARVELOUS stories. You WILL make marvelous stories. And the FIRST story of the new world will be a story of REVENGE! -- The Psycho Pirate, Animal Man 23, May 1990.

At halftime last night Tim Legler compared Steve Nash to Wayne Gretzky - huh ? Sure they are both slightly built canadians who like to pass but I think Nash has a long way to go before he should even be mentioned in the same breath as the Great One.
