I know this is not baseball related but I wanted to take a moment to pay respects to the great actor/comedian Leslie Nielsen who passed away today at a hospital near his home in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. at the age of 84. – Link
His list of movie credits are too vast to list here but the 1st time I recall watching him in a film was as Commander J.J. Adams in the sci fi movie Forbidden Planet but what I will remember him most from are his Airplane and Naked Gun movies.
Our condolences go out to his family & friends. Here is a clip from the movie “Naked Gun” where Nielsen predicted way before anyone else just how much the MLB Umpires would want to be a part of the limelight. Enjoy.
