There is a history of The Committee listening to Sir Creep's brilliance and being brilliant for doing so.  This would be another one of those times.  You can expect to see Pete Rose in the #14 slot in the 2022 DL list, making it the second time we could retire his number 14.  (That said, why either Henry Aaron or Willie Mays aren't on DL this year is for them to explain.  I wouldn't expect both, but one for sure). 

 

and 23 hours later....
Hall of Famer Henry "Hank" Aaron dies at 86 | News | cbs46.com

And because I DID say it ahead of time, I can now say it was a 'big miss' for the Committee.  And now I have.

And I will say, as I sometimes do, Baseball isn't played in the UK, 'the committee' are cricket fans if anything so naturally Edrich over any baseballer and 'a big miss' is in the eye of the beholder.

Arguing against 'big miss' endlessly might be sisyphean in these parts, but I'm from a stout stock so fuck it I'll plod on.

 

*Personally I'm quite fond of baseball, perhaps perversely, so I know who Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and so on are, even ffs down to your Barry Bonds' and Cal Ripkens. But they aren't and never likely will be, big on this side of the pond.

81 year old Coronation Street actor Malcolm Hebden reveals he won't be returning to the show to play Norris Cole as his body is not willing even though the mind is.

Seeing social media posts saying Peter Singh (aka The Panjabi Elvis) has died - he was 80 (according to some claims) and a mere 74 according to a John Peel fan site.

 

Known for some corkers - Rockin' with the Sikh, Turbans Over Memphis etc.

In all seriousness - he was greatly loved, if only by a cult audience, a bit like "Chinese Elvis" who gigged in his own restaurants. Apart from a certain radio show very dear to my heart the one place I heard him played on radio was John Peel playing Elvis I'm on the Phone from a stunning album called Elvis Impersonator Blues (a compilation of the - ahem - more singular end of tribute recordings to the King)

  • Alan Igbon, 68, British actor (Boys from the Blackstuff, The Professionals, Coronation Street).[2] (death announced on this date)

    Note that it says "death announced on this date".

    If an exact date is unknown, they're by default listed under the date of the earliest date of announcement by a reliable source.

    It'll be moved once an exact date becomes clear.


Telegraph obituary. Gives a date of death of 9th December 2020.

PS Second time I’ve tried to embed a FB link lately and it hasn’t worked. I think it’s buggered.

 

I couldn't get one to embed the other day either.

I should have had him on my radar.  I knew he was frail, but I guess I just didn't think he was ready to go in his mid-80's.  Mistake by me.
