    The Cards gave me some caps to give to our coaches when my daughter's team played as representatives of the Cardinals in the NFL Girls Flag football national championship tournament. I had some left over and gave one to O. I've never seen a guy wear out a hat so fast. The last time I saw him wear it looked like something even Goodwill wouldn't take. :)

    Used to send him a ticket when I couldn't make a game.

    Glad to have been part of the group able to help out when he needed us a couple of years ago.

    Just wanted to post an update ...

    There are no services planned as of now as Bill's brother is ill. Many of us at the wake talked about having some fundraisers to give Bill a proper burial. So, that is where things stand. I hope we'll have some details for fundraisers in the very near future.

    I've been away for awhile and was shocked to see this news. I didn't know O personally, but I always loved reading his posts. This board will never be quite the same.

    RIP O

    Can we move this to the Hall of Remembrance before it gets buried in the abyss forever? I know that section (Hall of Fame/Remembrace) hasn't been updated in forever (so not sure if no one has access to it or something), but seems like it should be in there.

    After a little more time it will be moved. When it goes to HoR, no more posts can be made on the thread.

    I liked O a lot and miss him.

    He was a PITA to me as an Admin always bitching about the sucky home page (which does suck) and the Yahoo news RSS feeds.

    But he loved this site, all of you, and music and dogs. Huge loss for ASFN.

    Joel, I think a day or two open if there are any last minute comments then it can be HoR'ed. Can you take care of it?
