    Terrible news re: ALinChainz

    Folks,
    Unfortunately I have to pass on some terrible news....

    I just got a call from Pojo Risin. He got a call today from the brother of Mick Miller, who's a regular poster at most of the Van Halen message boards as "ALinChainz". Mick's brother informed Pojo that Mick passed away early this morning.

    We had known soon after our fantasy football draft at the end of August that Mick was going in for hernia surgery. At this time we don't know the cause of his death, but we also know that one of Mick's brothers had testicular cancer as well. So it's unclear right now if that may unknowingly have been a contributing factor also.

    Pojo will be calling back today to give his condolences on behalf of all of us, as well as attempting to get more information.

    Rest in peace, Mick.

    Thanks,
    Tony (VA)

    Holy shit. I'm really sorry to hear that. I really liked that guy a lot. We've duked it out the last few years in fantasy basketball and I really enjoyed his company as well as his entire demeanor at the roth army. A truly class act. Sunofabitch..... happy trails Mick.

    That's horrible. My sentiments thoughts and prayers to his family. Rest in peace.

    Thanks for letting us know bro..

    Damn, I didn't even realize it was going on. Helluva cool guy. Tons of fun when I used to play fantasy football, the only serious league I was on was at the Army.

    My condolences go out to all his friends and family.

    I remember the name, but little else. My condolences go out to his family.

    It also makes one wonder how many other linkers that we haven't seen in ages have already left us?

    I was playing Fantasy Football this year with him.

    He was always one of those guys that treated everyone with respect and dignity, which is hard to do on a message board, especially our beloved Roth Army, lol.

    This sucks.
