    Rest in Peace Rich. That man was always a class act. He will definitely be missed.

    Not sure he's all that old, only 54 I believe.

    That stupid ass link to the DP made firefox shut down 3 times. Weird.

    Too early, that's for sure. Rest in Peace Rich.

    Agree. Too bad. Back when Rich was working with Wyatt Thompson, the announcing team was the only tolerable part of that program. Haven't heard Rich since, but he always seemed like a good guy.

    Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends....
