Goodnight WAC

The WAC, a conference Utah helped create in the 1960s, appears to be on the verge of collapse. That's too bad, as a lot of good Utah moments happened in this storied conference.

Former Blues GM Ron Caron Passes Away At Age 82

17

Ron Caron was the man who brought Brett Hull to town and sent Cliff Ronning packing. He was the architect of the pre-Keenan Blues that never missed the playoffs and always seemed entertaining to watch. Clever, engaging, flamboyant, bombastic . . . he made growing up a Blues fan a pure joy. Funny that the Blues are playing the Habs tonight, as before he became GM of the Blues, he was an Assistant GM in Montreal. And he always had "meat on zee burner". RIP, Ron. I'm sure more will be up on this later.

As reported by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Mark "Bison" Smith has passed away at the age of 38. Bison Smith spent most of his career in Pro Wrestling NOAH in Japan and the International Wrestling Association in Puerto Rico but also had a short run in 2009 for Ring of Honor. I had seen a small amount of his work -- all of it from NOAH -- but enjoyed what little I saw. There has been an enormous outpouring of grief and remembrance on Twitter from both his fans and his contemporaries since the tragic news broke. Our thoughts go out to his family, friends, and fans during this sad time.
