    Used to cover the Bulls in the '90s, and later became an entertainment writer.

    RIP, Mr. Armour.

    Damn, that sucks.

    Obit doesn't say if he was married or had kids, but my prayers to his family.

    My goodness. He had been co-hosting a non-sports radio show on the station where Steve Dahl was doing afternoons. CBS blew up the format in the last few months.

    Sad news.

    Wow, that's awful.
    I remember reading him daily when I was a J-school student at the University of Iowa, where the Trib was available every day (don't know if it is now).
    A terrible loss. What a talented writer, and only 46? Damn.

    This is a sad, touching line.

    "Armour and his wife of nearly four years had recently moved into a new home.

    "He was everything to me," she said. "And he never got tired of seeing his name in print.""

    Sad, sad story.

    One of my best friends. I was with his wife and family at the hospital and later at his new home. One of the all-time great people.

    If you knew him, you knew how great a man he was. If you didn't, I'm sorry you never got the chance.

    I'm just devastated.

    Terrible, terrible news. Hang in there, Rambler.
    Terry worked near me years and years ago early in his career. To say I knew him would be a stretch. We met once or twice, he always struck me as very nice and very professional. Guys who worked with him raved about him.

    RIP, condolences to the family.
