May-23-17  grasser: It is just so sad. Lived to age 77. The perfect age to pass away. Had a great career. Played amongst the best of his time. All we get for our efforts, championships and study, is that we all just become a footnote in the database.

Not sure every 77 year old would agree with this sentiment...

You eventually will when you see all the oldtimers at >78 and how they spend their days in regret having missed that perfect exit age.
