Cokie Roberts died of breast cancer at 75.

She was as prominent as any political journalist through the 90s, and just sort of faded away.  I can't remember the last time I saw her on TV.

Very sad.  I thought that she was a solid journalist and a solid person.

I had certainly heard of her.Just a coincidence that during the cocaine out break and wars in the 80's a lady named Cokie happened to cover some of it

She was pretty good.  When I used to watch Brinkley, she was a good guest.

that video is classic. i love the ref's touchdown signal, so flamboyant. reminds me of margarida, a very flamboyant soccer ref.

Saginaw/Spartans legend and former Lions wideout Charles Rogers has passed away at 38.

edit: CR was battling liver disease and awaiting organ transplant for several years now. Always sad to hear of players I watched not so long ago already gone from us 🙏 (several recent Iowa player passings come to mind).
