Please stop posting bogus pages from Wikipedia, unless you have a more reliable source of info. Hopefully you didn't do it on purpose.

excuse me? Where does that come from? You saying that I have been posting bogus wiki pages?

I heard it on the radio and just pulled up the wiki page to give people some background.

Not cool to report one's demise w/o something a bit more credible.

So, what's the real deal here?

Looks like a few guys are sticking their feet in their mouths.....you don't really think Mookie would post something if he didn't know it to be true before hand do you? :-°

Unfortunately I can't say I'm shocked by this. He was in poor health.

If it's true then I apologize. However, anyone can edit wiki pages, that is why I asked for another source. One would have to agree it sounded fishy if it hits wiki before it hits any newspaper.
