Farewell Tim

A sad note to end the week. NBC's Tim Russert, the host "Meet the Press" and arguably the most famous fan of the Bills, has just passed away at the age of 58. Besides having great taste in football teams, Russert, a Buffalo native, was one of the more articulate voices in American journalism. I specifically recall watching "Meet the Press" before one of the Super Bowls where he made no attempts to hide the fact that he would be cheering for the Bills. For some reason that memory has stuck some 13 or 14 years later.

A few of us saw Tim at the Ralph a few years back (that isn't us in the picture).

Anyways, this is terrible. Two days before Father's Day to boot. Not that there's ever a good time for something like this. There's really nothing else to say. He'll be sadly missed.

Tim Russert was the 'Bomb'.

I'll genuinely miss him on Meet the Press.
