Jimmy Dean the sausage guy (and musician) died at 81.

For making a less than heart friendly product he did pretty well length of life wise.

I remember when Jimmy Dean was a singer and had his great hit Big Bad John.



Before that I remember a little about his TV show:



The Muppets remember, too:



James Bond remembers philanthropist Willard Whyte in Diamonds are Forever:



As for Jimmy Dean Sausage:



I recall that everyone in my family was surprised when this TV and recording star decided to go into the sausage business. We all thought it was kinda weird, but as it turns out, Jimmy Dean made the leanest sausage around that contained a higher quality of meat and tasted better than anyone else's.

You know how sausage is such a breakfast staple. Jimmy Dean got tired of settling for the status quo and did like a typical country boy would, he made his own damn sausage and made it available to those, like him, who demanded decent quality.

RIP Jimmy Ray

P.S. It nice to see posts of people who died other than musicians.

George Steinbrenner, who bought a declining Yankees team in 1973, promised to stay out of its daily affairs and then, in an often tumultuous reign, placed his formidable stamp on 7 World Series championship teams, 11 pennant winners and a sporting world powerhouse valued at perhaps $1.6 billion, died Tuesday morning, the team announced. He was 80 and lived in Tampa, Fla.

R.I.P george.
