My favorite John Young quote

“Anyone who sits on top of the largest hydrogen-oxygen fueled system in the world, knowing they’re going to light the bottom, and doesn’t get a little worried, does not fully understand the situation.”

John Young, after being asked if he was nervous about making the first Space Shuttle flight in 1981.

Damn it... Sad The good news is that I can now die peacefully whenever knowing that I'll be able to see Motörhead in the originial line-up playing in Walhalla!

And we should all note that "Norris" from Coronation Street - actor Malcolm Hebden - is NOT dead.

Despite my wife telling me earlier today that he had passed away.

Cyril Regis, only 59  Shocked

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42687285

Reading through the comments on the BBC website spotted this apposite tribute from big bo selekta:
Quote
He lived and played through a unique time in football history. During the seething, shameful abuse of the 70's and 80's he kept his dignity and helped educate the ignorant.

The modern day player, of whatever creed or colour, owes Cyrille, Laurie and Brendan a huge debt.
