    After the Ladies coverage on TSN1 they have reported it. Said to be of a heart attack. RIP.

    Yes, it's true, they're talking about him on TSN right now.

    Extremely sad news (although I must admit I've seen very little of his skating...I know, I need to fix that).

    Thank you; I am sure he will be remembered at Canadian Nats; I hope he is remembered at US Nats as well.

    Mods: can we edit the header to take out the question mark, and perhaps use the header in my actual post? I don't know how to do that.

    I don't think I've ever seen Tracy Wilson in tears on the air before. Truly a giant in the sport. He ushered in a new era. An original.

    I've seen all of his great programs in those good old days. He was amongst my all time top 3 with John Curry and Yagudin.
    RIP

    Very sad. He was an artist on and off the ice. A pioneer, an innovator. A sad day for skating. May happy memories keep a smile to those who mourn; may hopes of those inspired bring us comfort at this time. And may we just be a little kinder, gentler to one another.
