    Shut your whole mouth when you're talking about Mighty Dyckerson.

    Out of respect to the family, I will classily not make any long hearse jokes.

      Out of respect to myself, I will not omit the phrase "six feet under and eight feet over."

        Only 47. Awful.

          I remember watching him play in the NBA. I got to the game early & was watching him during the pre-game shoot around. I'll never forget the two groupies behind me chuckling as they discussed just how big he actually measured.

          Don't forget his brief professional hockey career long after he retired from the NBA.

            Watching Manute Bol hit three pointers was something to behold. Good basketball player who was able to survive the NBA for several years, but an even better humanitarian.

              Relatives lived two doors down from him in Sugar Land, TX, and said he was the nicest guy in the neighborhood.

                  You misspelled "minute."

                    It was satire.

                        Not to mention that very brief boxing career...

                            Here is an interesting "fact" about the big guy. He was the first to use and popularize the phrase "My bad." Although the NYT wrote a collumn today refuting it, here is a link.

                              Some of these comments are stretching it a bit.
