    A shitload of commercials have to be pulled right away, I'd think.

    Jeebus. Only 50.

    I wonder if he banged his head with the rough jetliner landing.

    This has been a bad week. The Grim Reaper, unfortunately, is making his $$$ this past week. McMahon, Fawcett, Jackson, Ed Thomas, and now Mays.

    So weird. I played baseball with his son. And he was just on Conan this past week promoting his new show and was pretty funny.

    He told a Tampa TV Station the following:

    "All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping. It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head."
