Merlin Olsen Dies

Merlin Olsen passed away yesterday of mesothelioma. He was only 69.

THe NFL Hall of Famer was one of the greatest defensive linesmen of our time when he played for the Los Angeles Rams as part of the 'fearsome foursome,' and then embarked on a successful television career.

Besides commercials and commenatating on football games, he had long-running roles in "Little House on the Prairie" and "Father Murphy." He'll be missed.
