I'm not sure if you guys heard the news but Patrick Patterson of "Thoughts From the Darkside" blog is dead of a suspected blood clot at age 38.
http://tfdssports.com/ was his website.
He was a really wonderful guy. I know i will miss his humor and hard hitting coverage of the team he loved so much.
This is an excerpt about his death from Bret on their site.
TFDS Staff writer Bret Armstrong had this to say:
"Patrick- You will always be a mentor to me, man. I don't know why the world would want to take you away from us when you still had so much to offer and to give in life. Whenever I think of you in the future the thing I will probably remember the most was your laugh. I guess that's a good thing.
"You'll never know how much you actually influenced me and my writing. It was a great honor and a privilege to work with you and to be a part of your life even if it was just for a short time. You'll always be in my heart, big guy, and I can only hope to carry on this website in a way that would still make you proud to be a part of it with us.
"An honorable man, and I know he will be dearly missed by those who were close to him. My heart just goes out to his family and his close friends because I didn't know very much about him outside of our work together, but what I did know is that he was a very kind hearted and good spirited person. I love you bro, rest in peace."
