I know I'm a little late on this one

but I was at an awesome airsoft birthday party at Orvis Sandanona!

Well, the news that has shocked the world. The King of Pop has fell asleep on the throne, never to wakened again. If you are a major bone head and you don't know who I'm talking about you seriously need to get a life. Michael Jackson passed away today at the age of 50, from what says to be a heart attack. He leaves 3 children behind. I never was a huge fan of Michael's, and always say him as a scary man. That's because I wasn't alive in the 80's. I like some of his music, and one of my best friends is a huge fan, and I feel bad. Many terrible things have happened to the guy and I wish his family the best. My friend actually had tickets for his up-coming concert, and they delayed it due to stage issues. Many people thought the stage thing was not true and that Michael had been sick. They were right. They said he needed a lung transplant but he was too weak to do it. He also had many other bad symptoms involved.

There are many great things to remember about Michael. The fact that his album "Thriller" stayed at #1 album for 37 weeks is incredible! The fact that he has 9 platinum songs, and how he sold over 750 million albums around the globe. Also, the fact that he is #1 album on iTunes right now is pretty amazing. So many people supported the guy, and this is definitely tragic news.

Also, other sad news around the sports world:

1: Geovanny Soto of the Cubs was caught tested positive for marijuanna during the World Baseball Classic, and feels ashamed. One of my favorite catchers too. What a bummer.

2: Vince Carter was traded to the Magic! Are you kidding me? I'm a Nets fan, and my favorite basketball players were Vince and Devin Harris! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

So, an overall sad day. Farah Fawcett also died as well.


  1. Drew, very nice article. I have never been a big fan, but am also sensitive to his family, and followers. Very nice tribute. Farrah Faucet faught a courageous battle, and was a very beautiful woman.

  2. Well, not a MAJOR bonehead..... :)

    This was a very sad day. You said it well.
