Football Season Is Over

Hunter Stockton Thompson: July 18,1937- February 20, 2005

No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun -- for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax -- This won't hurt."

A few of his memorial quotes:

"If you're going to be crazy, you have to get paid for it or else you're going to be locked up."

"In a closed society where everybody's guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.

"That was always the difference between Muhammad Ali and the rest of us. He came, he saw, and if he didn't entirely conquer - he came as close as anybody we are likely to see in the lifetime of this doomed generation.

"The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."

This is a memorial post to one of the greatest writer/journalist ever lived. I will try to find and create my own Gonzo-style and post some of the stories here.
