I don't know if this belonged in the sports section or here but since this is the section we put celebrity deaths here I thought I'd put it here. For those who don't know, John Wooden is a legendary college basketball coach who coached UCLA 10 NCAA Championships in 12 years including 7 in a row. He coached such legends as the then Lou Alcindor who we all know as Kareem Abdul Jabbar(or Roger Murdoch), Walt Hazzard, Gail Goodrich, and Bill Walton. We was 99. http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/basketball/news?slug=ys-woodenobit060410

The man was 99 years old and lived a full life to say the least.
