    Unique way to deliver the story by Heavy.com ...


    See you in the great beyond, Nicolas, and Thank You.

    If by "unique," you mean "shitty," then yes.

    Hopefully we'll see some real obits on this true hero soon.

    Bleacher Report is doing obits now?

    From what I know about Heavy.com, its approach is to create original web content ASAP so that it gets the highest placement on Google, which then generates clicks galore. So while there may be "proper" obits to come, Heavy put this out there first (or close to first) and it's what people will see first when they Google his name.

    Right now it's the 5th item on the first page. More clicks, more revenue.
