49ers Legend R.C. Owens passes
 

San Francisco 49ers legend, R.C. Owens, passed away on Sunday, June 17, at the age of 78. Nicknamed “Alley Oop,” for his ability to out-leap defenders, the wide receiver was inducted into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. 49ers Hall of Fame in 2011, following a five-year playing career and more than two decades in the 49ers front office.

"The 49ers family has suffered a great loss with the passing of R.C. Owens," said 49ers Owner and Chairman John York. "Long after his days as a player were over, his devotion to the organization remained strong. R.C. was an ever-present supporter of the 49ers Foundation and did great works with the community at large. The San Francisco 49ers and our Faithful fans will forever be grateful for his contributions and he will be sincerely missed."

blotted out sunshine

I bet a fun thing would be to go way back in time to where there was going to be an eclipse and tell the cave men, ‘If I have come to destroy you, may the sun be blotted out from the sky.’ Just then the eclipse would start, and they’d probably try to kill you or something, but then you could explain about the rotation of the moon and all, and everyone would get a good laugh.
