Fashion designer, Karl Lagerfeld.
The great Don Newcombe, he was 92.
Flash back to my early days as a phan and the Roberts-Newcombe pitching match ups that seemed to occur every time the Phillies played Brooklyn. I knew it was always going to be a tough game for the Phils.

Oh wow. I used to watch reruns on Nick when I was a kid.
I loved them.
Yes, I did watch first run shows in prime time. A group created for a TV show as I recall. Light, fun show with a song every episode.
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe just died at age 62. Apparently he collapsed at the Red Sox complex today and could not be revived
I'm between those generations of Monkees viewers, there were reruns on Saturday morning I think back when we had about 7 channels to choose from.
The internet says the original series was on NBC, but then later reruns were on CBS and then ABC.
Damn, sad news about Cafardo.
The Monkees were great. A pretty weird show, and in the long run, a very real band. Davy was the only non-musical genius.
Shocked to hear the news on Cafardo. He was at the Red Sox spring park and evidently died from an embolism at the park. Medical team was unable to save him. Only 62.
My first fan girl boy bans. My favorite was Davy JonesWho was the hot English lead singer. amazingly, before The Monkees I saw him live in the musical Oliver Twist.
Dick Churchill, last member of "The Great Escape" team
Actor Katherine Helmond. I imagine more than a few news broadcasts today will be showing scenes from that wonderfully controversial and funny TV series Soap.
Apparently back on Tuesday, Bob Shannon legendary former Captain of the Quaker City String Band passed away.
