    I was thinking it was one of those false reports but it's on all the major outlets like CNN and MSN. Sad. And they are saying it's a Suicide?. Don't get that
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

      It's apparent suicide.

      He has been battling depression for years, and he had a very serious drug addiction.

        Didn't know that. Goes to show you a guy like that so funny and great actor I'm assuming he didn't want for money yet was depressed. Shows money isn't always all you need

          Yes, you're right.
          He spoken openly about it too. It's really sad to see someone who brought so much joy, energy, and hard work to have to suffer like that.

          Hollywood isn't all that it's hyped up to me.

                  It is a really tough cross to bear. We really have no idea how complicated mental illness can be. We do know that many of the great comedians struggle with it for their entire life including one of Robin's great mentors Jonathan Winters. As gifted a comedian as he was, I loved him as an actor even more. His performance in Dead Poets Society was spectacular. Gonna miss him.........
                  No one remembers who came in second.

                    Just an interesting tidbit I learned in one of my psychology courses.
                    Humor can be seen as a defense mechanism, transferring unwanted thoughts into a more acceptable light.

                      Have you seen What Dreams May Come?

                      If you haven't, it's..just truly remarkable. Incredibly sad, but a beautiful movie. You see him in a different light.

                          Yeah, beautiful movie like mystical with Cuba Gooding Jr. Williams was a comic that comedy would just flow out of him, he actually made u LOL. Awakening and hour photo were two of his better acting roles.

                            One Hour Photo was so thrilling and creepy. I loved it!

                              My jaw hit the floor watching the news about Robin Williams on TV. Stunned isn't a strong enough word. I remember watching Williams on Mork & Mindy when I was kid. He had a lot of really good films, but my favorite has always been Dead Poets Society.

                              R.I.P. Robin Williams. He had a lot of personal struggles in his life, but hopefully he's at peace now.
                              One of these teams is not like the others
