    One of our hooplans was killed in an automobile accident Saturday morning. Josh (RoboticDreams) worked with me in Dallas. He was a good friend and will be missed by all of us that knew him. He left behind some young children. Thoughts and prayers for his family.

    I wish I could take back some things I said in the past to RD...use to call him "WetDreams". We battled for a short time and in the end I considered him a good poster.

    Always sad to hear of someones passing. Thinking of his family today.

    It's surreal. One of the best.

    So incredibly sad for his family and kids right now.

    I'll never understand how some are taken from us way too soon.

    Too. Damn. Young.

    Always makes me consider my own life and know that at any moment, it could be over. I catch myself asking questions such as:
    Will my family be taken care of?
    Did I lead a good life?
    What would be my legacy?
    .....

    My thoughts to RD's family and friends.

    One thing I do know is that RD spent a lot of time on the Hoop. He was on ESPN and came into work pissed off that they were shutting the message boards down. I had just moved over from CBS and was and told him to check it out. Since then almost every day he be like "you been on the hoop lately" and then talk about some of the threads.

    He was originally from California and I would always greet him at work with the "what err you doin here" like that skit from SNL. The dude had a good sense of humor. Big USC fan he was just saying the other day how he couldn't wait until the season started...
