Remembering Mike Kahn

I don't have a lot more in me than to post the thread about this terribly sad news. He was a really good man, a great father and an absolute pioneer in this business, although I don't think he'll ever be given enough credit for how big of a role he played in the development of Internet sports journalism.

He didn't tell that many people how sick he was -- or, more to the point according to John McGrath (see below), the word didn't spread that far outside the Pacific Northwest -- so this was a great shock. I can only wish the best for his family, and that he gets the credit for who he was.

Here's one remembrance.

Here's another.

Several people, including John Clayton and Bart Wright, on the Seahawks site.
