As many of you may have already read on other sites, one of the lead bloggers at Canis Hoopus is no longer with us.
We are deeply saddened to report the passing of Tim Allen. At this time, details surrounding his death are still unconfirmed and we urge everyone to respect the privacy of his family. The only thing that matters right now is the loss of our friend. We confirmed Tim's death with the proper authorities.
All of SB Nation is struck by this tragic loss including those of us who had a chance to meet Tim in person and those who only knew him through his great work here at Canis Hoopus. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tim's family and friends as they mourn his passing.
Daily Norseman also posted on the tragic loss of life.
It is interesting how we develop online friendships with others who have a shared passion for sports or our favorite teams. I did not know or interact with Tim at all, but this is clearly a loss to the Canis Hoopus community and some sad days for those who knew him.
If anyone so desires to give toward his memorial, the family is requesting that all memorials in his name be given to the Human Society of Minnesota.
