Fear and Loathing in the Blogosphere was conceived as a tribute to Hunter S. Thompson. There wasn't need to have a personal relationship with The Good Doctor to know he wouldn't be the kind to slowly, quietly fade away. Yet, it still came as a shock last February when he blew his brains out.

It's disappointing ESPN chose to pull the Thompson archive. That would be interesting to peruse.
