    Norm Van Lier and Johnny Red Kerr Pass Away

    Not everyone may know who it is, but Bulls fans should. He's been doing pre and post game for the Bulls for a long time, and he played for them back in the '70s.

    Edit: On the same day, fellow Bulls legend Johnny Red Kerr also passed away. Kerr was just honored at a Bulls game just a few weeks ago.

    Re: Norm Van Lier Passes Away at 61

    Wow. He looked 61 when I was a huge Bulls fan, during Jordan's heyday. Hard to believe he was in his 40's and early 50's throughout that. I always enjoyed him, though...

    Oh yeah, I remember him playing in he seventies, along with Jerry Sloan. That was when it was fun to pay attention to the Pros, now I cannot find myself to watch anything except college ball.

    Just heard the news about Red Kerr. This is truly one of saddest days in Chicago Bulls history. I'm in shock.
