WWE Paul Bearer Passes away....

WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of William Moody, aka Paul Bearer. Moody made his WWE debut in 1991 as the manager of The Undertaker and went on to become a memorable part of WWE over the course of the next 20 years.

Our deepest condolences go out to Moody’s family, friends and fans.

Stompin Tom Connors has died at age 77,

He's one of the great role models in Canadian music. Ever since he wrote "The Hockey Song", his song has become popular not just on-the-ice, but off-the-ice (pun intended) - meaning his song received a lot of airplay.

Hockey wouldn't be the same without that song, but still his legacy lives on....

not to mention he wrote a TTC based song....

One of the lesser known facts, sadly. The Spadina Bus seemed to be overruled that as the main TTC song.

Nevertheless, RIP.

Actually The Hockey Song didn't get famous until 1997 when the Leafs and Sens started playing it in their arenas. In fact, it was never released as a single!

So long, Bud The Spud. :( If anyone's interested, you can go see his tribute on March 13th at 7PM EDT at the Peterborough Memorial Centre in Peterborough, Ont. At his request, it will be open to the public.

Also instead of flowers, his family is asking to give money to your local food bank and/or homeless shelter
