If you haven't heard yet, Tim Russert, the host of NBC's Sunday morning political show, Meet the Press
, and a Buffalo Sabres fan, died today at age 58. Russert collapsed at work whilst working on this Sunday's edition of the show, and couldn't be saved. The Stanley Cup made an appearance with Tim during the Sabres' runner-up result in 1999.
Tim made politics worth it. It's a sad day for all of us in journalism, no matter which specialty we work in. I wonder what state he would've told us to watch this year.
