People We Lost in Sports (2014)

I knew some of the people on this list. It's scary, unsettling and depressing to read these names.

Bummer! I didn't know Earl Morrall died!


Not so scary and depressing as sad but bittersweet IMO. Some names I knew, same I had forgotten, some I had never heard of.

"Sad, but bittersweet" also fits.

I recognized a number of the names but many I did not. Sad and scary since I am older than many of them.

Thanks for sharing that, I had no idea that many of those mentioned had passed.

Same here. Sad that (at least) two of them died while competing - the young race driver and the cricket player.
