Sounds like a cool and talented kid. They say the brightest stars burn the quickest but are the most beautiful. Best wished to family and friends.

newaddict: you obviously have never been to St. Jude's hospital!

Actually, I have - not only that, but have had several close family members go the same way. Dark humor, it's called.

Redundancy department of redundancy?

He passes away from cancer after battling with cancer... ORLY? I thought he died of cancer after going for a swim... or that he drowned after the battle ;P

i couldn't tell from the headline... but are you saying he had cancer?
 
2008-12-04 11:25:55 AM  
My bad at missing the double cancer phrase while proof reading.

Still sad story in spite of my FU.

Nice for the Golf Channel to give him a eulogy on the Golf Channel.

/another tragedy that could have been avoided by hibernation

As they slowly lower his coffin into the grave, you just know some jerk is going to yell out, "GET IN THE HOLE!!"

Don't worry. Here's the original headline submission (my best recollection of it, at least) for your Farkin' pleasure.

...and this is what happens when you sell your kids soul to the devil so you can be on the sports channel
 
2008-12-04 01:34:12 PM  
That's such a sad story. My condolences to the family.
 
2008-12-04 01:34:18 PM  
It was nice that God granted him the talent to golf well, but kind of sucky that He got jealous and killed the kid with cancer.
 
2008-12-04 01:35:57 PM  
goodnight funnykid

that is so wrong but i still laughed audibly
 
2008-12-04 01:36:12 PM  
What sort of sadistic jerk takes a child *golfing*? That is tantamount to letting your kid spend the night at Neverland Ranch.

Wow, so wrong, yet so funny.

God bless the child and his family.

But that was funny. And I'm just going to assume that somehow the kid got a laugh out of it too.
 
2008-12-04 01:46:46 PM  
I didn't think the Golf Channel could be any more boring.

This popped up on my computer after laughing way too hard at DslainteC's post. Think it means anything?

Kids+cancer=f'd up.

Jesus Christ I hate myself for enjoying that.

Rest in Peace, kid.

The poor kid lived 12 years and he chose to waste some of that time on GOLF?!?

I do nothing but work and sleep. I don't have any friends or talk to anyone socially. And I still pity that poor kid for wasting his life.
 
2008-12-04 02:09:09 PM  
This is why i tell anyone who believes in a passionate loving god to kiss my arse..

He had the Cancer and the Ginger?

Poor little bastard...
 
2008-12-04 02:23:37 PM  
If ever there was a time for a mulligan, this is it. This kid deserves another change. Not to many like that now with the stabbing, raping, old person UFIA, and such.
 
2008-12-04 02:51:59 PM  
Aw, jeez.

This is what my mom had. I'm surprised she survived it, but it never made her 100% after that. She had two more cancers that she survived, the third not officially because it was only three years before she died, but she was cancer-free when she did die (surprisingly up until four days before she died, she could walk, although at a 45 degree angle!). Because the spinal cord is connected to the brain stem, the chemo basically fried her brain, and she basically became drug-addled as well because the one of the few things it didn't fry was her pain receptors. She lived eighteen years after her first diagnosis. She physically (and mentally) suffered until then.

/It's been three years. I still miss her.
//Go in peace, li'l guy.
