It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere - R.I.P. Tim Russert Edition

Since it's Friday, and the end of the workweek for most people, we think that you should be provided with a post that takes the edge off so to speak. Because it's going to be random and hopefully humorous, that means that it won't always be sports related. It will also pop up at any time on Friday.

Originally, I was going to put up a post regarding "He Got Game" in honor of Ray Allen's play last night. However, due to recent, and very sad, events it's been replaced to honor the memory of Tim Russert. He died today of a heart attack at the age of 58.

I always thought he did a good job hosting "Meet The Press", and his political coverage seemed to be pretty fair(well, as fair as one can be in that arena). Death is never an easy thing to deal with, but when it strikes suddenly at the age of 58 years young it's even harder. My condolences go out to his family, friends and colleagues.

R.I.P. Tim Russert.
