AdolfOliverPanties: Perfect headline.  Sad story.


Hilarious name to boot.  But in all seriousness, it's always sad that someone decides that it's time to go.

At least he didn't go 120 through some shopping mall, taking out 50 people before doing it..

this one.  definitely this one.
 
2013-05-16 04:47:16 PM
It's all you guys fault for making fun of his name!

/but it was a funny name tee hee

I blame Reagan.
 
2013-05-16 04:48:35 PM
Damn, that's sad.  I'm not a NASCAR fan, but years ago, when ESPN was still enjoyable and not so self-absorbed, they would always, ALWAYS say where Dick Trickle finished in ever NASCAR race at the end of the bit about that day's race on SportsCenter.  Some people (not Trickle, AFAIK) got a little rankled at the sophomoric humor, so they later wouldn't outright mention his name, but say, "You-know-who finished 43rd."
 
2013-05-16 04:49:30 PM
It's a sad story.  But, to be honest, at 71 he lasted about 57 years longer than most of us would have with the same name.

I wonder if it's going to come out that he was very sick. RIP. Sad for his family.

I've always kinda figured that someone going out on their own terms is one of the better ways. Many times their reasons suck, but someone saying 'It's been real, I'm out' has never bothered me.

The Lincoln County Communications Center received a call apparently from the victim that "there would be a dead body and it would be his."

How is he a victim?
 
2013-05-16 04:52:31 PM
Someone go see if Dick Armey is okay.
 
2013-05-16 04:53:14 PM
Apparently he called the police and told them they'd find a body at Forest Lawn

/surprised they didn't just say "well, duh"
 
2013-05-16 04:53:16 PM
I wonder why he did this. Was he sick? Depressed? And why do it in a cemetery? And why call 911 before you do it? Very weird.
 
2013-05-16 04:53:35 PM
So sad. My introduction to racing was on the short tracks around Wisconsin and Dick Trickle was a god long before he got into NASCAR.
 
2013-05-16 04:53:53 PM
I myself have that affliction. It's not worth killing yourself over. Just wad some toilet paper in your boxers and you're good to go.

2013-05-16 04:54:18 PM
Killed himself in a cemetery, no less.  Wonder if he did it right next to his own plot, or parents, or what?
 
2013-05-16 04:54:28 PM
Wonder if he found out he had a terminal disease.

Oh I don't know, maybe because his patents named him Dick Trickle.
 
2013-05-16 04:54:31 PM
very sad. wasn't his real name Richard Whetone

That depends
 
2013-05-16 04:54:57 PM
If he was in such a state that he thought it was the only choice he had, I am happy for him to have some relief.
Sorry as hell for his family, since the living are the ones who have to deal with it.

And why call 911 before you do it? Very weird.


Probably so the people who found him would be people who were accustomed to finding and handling damaged bodies, and not some random visitors to the cemetery (who would understandably be freaked out).

Jeez ESPN.com has no mention. But I guess this news has only broke in the last 30 minutes. Suicide is always sad. I also didn't realize he was over 70.

If he filed his patents that way, who else is their to blame then himself?
 
2013-05-16 04:56:22 PM
Poor guy.  I guess his career never recovered from the lack of attention paid to him after Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann stopped doing Sportscenter.

Anderson's Pooper: It's a sad story.  But, to be honest, at 71 he lasted about 57 years longer than most of us would have with the same name.

"It's pronounced, 'Trick-Ley'!"

wow....stunning.   remember dan patrick and olbermann on the big show..."and Dick Trickle finished 34th..."

/RIP racecar man.

Depends on the situation, I suppose.  Incurable terminal condition causing severe pain with no end in sight?  Sure, under those circumstances I might even consider it myself.  But if it's a problem that can be solved, just seems like a waste.

He was a quick shooter.

Actually, you are supposed to do the RIP meme by posting the wrong picture but still saying RIP DICK TRICKLE
 
2013-05-16 04:59:01 PM
It's like he finally understood why everyone had been laughing at his name for all this time and couldn't live with the shame...

/RIP

I'm not sure there's really another English word that you can use in its place. Do we have a generic word for the recipient of a self-inflicted bullet? "Committer of suicide" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

Astorix: I wonder if it's going to come out that he was very sick. RIP. Sad for his family.


It wouldn't be completely shocking.  You almost never saw him without a cigarette.

Hate to hear it.  He was a fantastic driver.

Holy shiat, subby.  This is "friends, family, bear" and "Juan Moore" quality.

catmandu: So sad. My introduction to racing was on the short tracks around Wisconsin and Dick Trickle was a god long before he got into NASCAR.


He was a legend long before he came to NASCAR at the twilight of his career.

He was also a pretty much hopeless drunk, and never apologized for it either.

So that may help answer the 'why'.
 
2013-05-16 05:01:53 PM
Thanks for the memories, Dick Trickle.  You were one of a kind.
 
2013-05-16 05:01:55 PM
They used to say I had a trick dickle.
