I’d be remiss if I didn’t take a moment to acknowlege the passing of Michael Jackson, who joined Farrah Fawett with his sudden death today at the age of 50.

As someone who grew up during the 80′s, love him or hate him the guy was a legend.  I’m sure now that he’s passed away we’ll finally learn more about his strange behavior – although it’s sad that it takes someone’s death to find out more about who they really were.  Nevertheless the guy had a major impact on music and during his peak was one of the greatest entertainers in the business.

He also played a part in Patriots History as pointed out by Chad Finn of the Boston Globe, citing a Forbes.com article from a couple of years ago.
