    Wow...just wow. I was no fan, by any means. Nevertheless, it's not shocking as much as stunning, if that makes any sense.

    So far TMZ is the only one reporting it. This could be a Paul McCartney situation.

    He was revived and taken to the hospital, according the CNN. This post should come down.

    No Jersey Selected

    CNN (on TV of course) is now saying that it's looking "grim". Hopefully he comes through. I'm no fan either, but he has a family just like the rest of us.

    Re: Michael Jackson dead

    It appears only TMZ is reporting he died. Other sources report he is in a coma.

    Looks like all are reporting now what we suspected that he is in fact dead.

    I think he revolutionized the pop genre/culture didn't he. I personally have never been a massive fan but I doubt there is a person in the world who hasn't heard of Michael Jackson.

    Never liked him, won't miss him. But I respect what he accomplished. Anyone dying of a heart attack at 50 is sad.

    I heard that Lou Ferigno was training him to get him back in shape for his upcoming concerts... seems like the guy's heart couldn't take it. It's a pretty sad story when you consider how high he went and how bad things got with his finances and personal life.

    Regardless of your view of Jackson, he was an integral part of the history of the New England Patriots. Boxing promoter Don King was nvolved in Jackson's "Victory" concert tour, and Billy Sullivan's son Chuck got involved. Sullivan was in way over his head negotiating with a guy like King, and King took Sullivan to the cleaners. Bottom line was that he lost so much money the Sullivans had to sell the team. A couple of owners later Robert Kraft entered the picture in Foxborough, and the rest is history.
