Fond memories of 2009

Tue, Dec 29

The end of a year is a time to look forward with hope and a new energy for the New Year.

But it's also a time to look back and remember those that we lost.

Today, Page 2 remembers those that passed away in 2009:

• Bill Belichick's invincibility

• USC's football dominance

• Tiger Woods' image

• Tim Tebow's future as a quarterback

• Ed Hochuli's biceps

• T.O. as relevant football player (reincarnated as a reality TV star)

• The fame of every '08 Olympian not named Usain Bolt or Michael Phelps

• Indoor football (Note: the Arena Football League. The Detroit Lions shockingly did not fold.)

• Brad Lidge

• Yankees' jokes

We will miss them all, and we hope that in 2010 this list only contains the BCS.
