    RIP, IG. You can tell KG that I was the one who nabbed the Aramingo.
    John Erlichman, one of President Richard Nixon's closest aides, has admitted America's "War on Drugs" was a hoax designed to vilify and disrupt "the antiwar left and black people" when it was launched in 1971.

      Ah, man…this sucks so bad. Truly horrible news.
      RIP to the OG Igglephan. The Goat.

      The most Philly dude I ever met. Authentic, hilarious, kind, & legendary. A walking/talking Philly sports encyclopedia.

      He brought my wife and me cheesesteaks at one of our first ever tailgates when I said I had never had one. He was literally mortified to hear that.

      Keeping his family and loved ones in our thoughts. Glad he is no longer suffering. It’s a terrible time for everyone involved.

      Fuck Cancer. I stand for Tim Kelly.

        I JUST KEEP REMEMBERING HOW HE TREATED MY STEPDAUGHTER EACH TIME WE WENT DOWNASHORE.
        FROM THE FIRST TIME TO THE LAST, HE TREATED HER LIKE HE KNEW HER HER ENTIRE LIFE AND WAS SO KIND....HIS MOM TOO...SHE JUST SMILED EACH TIME SHE WAS WITH HER.

        MISS YA BUD. GOOD PEOPLE....HE JUST KNEW HOW TO SPEAK TO EVERYONE TO MAKE THEM FEEL COMFORTABLE.

        TAKES A HIGHLY INTELLIGENT CARING MAN TO DO THAT.
        IT JUST SUCKS THAT THE PEOPLE THAT REALLY ENJOY LIFE, THAT REALLY ENJOY BEING WITH PEOPLE, GET TAKEN AWAY WAY TOO EARLY...

        SO PISSED....

        MY BRO STICKMAN AND NOW IG.

            I know I mentioned it previously but I unfortunately never had the pleasure of meeting him face-to-face like many of you guys. We knew each of us would be at a Mainland high school playoff game(must've been around ten years ago) and I told him I would probably be sitting near the press box and wearing a WVU hat. Well, as luck would have it there was another guy sitting on the other side of the press box wearing a WVU hat. Naturally, IG thought it was me and walked up the bleachers and said to the guy, "headknocker"? He told me the guy looked at him like he had three heads so he just walked down the bleachers to continue watching the game. He didn't tell me what happened until the next day on this bored and I just thought it was hilarious. Wasn't he the PR guy at Stockton State College for a time? I graduated from Stockton in '82 and I think I remember him mentioning it on the bored awhile ago. This loss hits HARD.

              May he be remembered for his generous spirit, dry wit, love for his family and friends, skillful pen, sports fandom and so much more.

              I'm heartbroken to have lost of my seatmate and friend.

              There's a tailgayte in heaven waiting for you with Red Klotz and KG has a giant aramingo with extra mayo.

              Love you Tim!

              Sorry to hear about IG, I remember having some discussions about Notre Dame with him back in the day, but he was always gracious, even to a newb like me.

              As someone who has lost both parents to cancer the last 3 years, I feel your pain.

                        500 internet fights, that's the number I figured when I first joined igglephans. 500 internet fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate internet-tough guy. You need them for experience, to develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then...after...you realize that's what you are.
