On 9/18/1979 I was not even 8 months old when Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett made guest appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, which was co-hosted by Ed McMahon. All 3 of them of course have passed away this week. They say death comes in 3's. Who they are I have no clue. But maybe this is some weird Final Destination shit going on. Death got Johnny Carson first five years ago but then managed a long vacation of knocking out people at God's on deck circle, otherwise known as Florida till taking out McMahon this week. He then said fuck it and knocked out Farrah and then hit a staggering left with the King of Pop. Come to think of it the Pittsburgh Pirates won the World Series over my Baltimore Orioles a month after Michael and Farrah appeared on The Tonight Show. The Pirates have been pretty much dead ever since. See, I tied yesterday's sad news about the passing of a Hollywood sex goddess and an icon who "touched" so many young people's lives into a sports analogy. Bob Costas could only dream of such a seamless transition. Anyways I hope the Pittsburgh Pirates, Ed McMahon, and Farrah Fawcett rest in peace. Feel free to insert inappropriate and insanely humorous jokes below.
