Default RIP Dan Gordon

Figured I'd give this its own thread for those who don't read the dead pool thread. It was reported on another forum that Dan Gordon, formerly of Fezzik's Place, has died:

Dan was a true character. He was convinced I was a Fezzik ghost account and would routinely send me 2000 word PMs comparing me to Hitler and ranting about how the US government invented AIDS in a lab in Maryland.

I'm sure just about everyone knows he had some genuine issues, but I met him on a couple of occasions and communicated with him on a few more. He always seemed like a decent guy, and while I didn't agree with nearly everything he said on handicapping, he did have some good insights, and his book on football handicapping is still worthwhile.

RIP Dan. Thanks for letting me know.

I remember when Dan used to write for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner. His articles were insightful at the time.

A friend of mine was very similar to Dan personality-wise. They took a road trip together----can you imagine what that was like?

I was wrong and you were right----Fezzik is a fraud. Hope you made it to the Happy Hunting Ground!
