    So terribly sad. He was 59.

    Just awful. I am so sorry for his loved ones. It was always a pleasure to encounter Bryan at an event.

    Yep. Bryan was always a thoughtful, warm, engaging guy to bump into at a game. True gentleman.

    Ah, shit. Cancer sucks.

    Never met Bryan personally but heard an awful lot of good things about him, and I read his work all the time in the Post-Dispatch. Before that he was in Detroit, so I saw his stuff in the News all the time.

    Sad day in the St. Louis community. RIP.

    Surprised and sorry to hear the sad news.

    Cancer sucks, doesn't it?

    Interns together in Richmond in 1976. Covered the Senior Little League World Series with him. Exceptionally good guy. Very sad news.

    Always liked that he brought his "national" profile to a market such as St. Louis. No idea of the circumstances or preferences that made that happen, but appeared to be a move in favor of relative grass-roots sports fandom. RIP.

    I feel just awful about this. I hadn't spoken to Bryan in a few years, but he was always great to deal with and a really nice guy.

    I remember riding an elevator with him at an NBA all-star weekend and having a really nice conversation to the point I wished the elevator ride had lasted longer. He was just a good guy to be around. RIP to a guy who always did it the right way.
