    Jesus, that's scary. I'm really paranoid about things like blood clots. They can affect seemingly healthy individuals and kill you very quickly. I don't know who he is, but 35 is way too young to die. RIP.

    This is so sad. I remember watching that year. He was cool guy, and so good looking. He went to the doctor for a swollen painful ankle. The doctor said everything was fine , and then he dies. That is so scary. RIP Michael
