"They Can Take My Leg, But They Can't Take My Smile"

We'll admit to not always being the biggest Wayman Tisdale fans in the world, but he grew on us, particularly after he emerged as a significant musical talent. He was a happy guy playing basketball, but he was a joyous man when he played music.

We knew he had lost a leg to cancer, but we thought he had beaten it. So finding out that cancer instead has beaten him was a blow. He died Friday at 44. What a shame.
