Default Godspeed Blacksmoke

Well guys, received word that MF'er Blacksmoke (Matt Connally) passed away yesterday. He was known to be the paranoid one. Always worried about some noise his car was making!

It was what he wanted after years of battling the pain of cystic fibrosis. And after fighting all week with trying to breath, he requested to not be resuscitated.

Godspeed Matt, I hope somewhere you're doing burnouts and picking on the ricers. Love you brother.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

That sucks. RIP dude. I know he was **** about most everything but I liked reading his posts anyway because he usually had good stuff.

What a bummer. He was only a few months older than I am. Really makes you appreciate life to see that someone around the same age is no longer with us. He did have many good posts through the years. RIP
