Former 49ers WR Dwight Clark Dies at Age 61

Research is the key in The Game Of All Games (http://www.stiffs.com/enter/), and information is precious. Therefore, DO NOT blurt out anything you may have heard about a celebrity's health, or even the fact that a famous person is really old, UNLESS that info has appeared on stiffs.com's SickTicker, OR, you have seen or heard it yourself on CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, Fox, AND the Drudge Report. When in doubt, shut the fuck up.

Please also refrain from making public the names of any write-in candidates that have not yet been approved by the Fame Committee. If you don't know what the Fame Committee is, see this immediately.

Be aware, too, that this forum is NOT the place to promote your own shitty dead pool.

One more rule: have fun.

Former San Francisco 49ers receiver Dwight Clark, who had ALS, died Monday at the age of 61.

His wife, Kelly, announced the news on Clark's Twitter account:



I’m heartbroken to tell you that today I lost my best friend and husband. He passed peacefully surrounded by many of the people he loved most. I am thankful for all of Dwight’s friends, teammates and 49ers fans who have sent their love during his battle with ALS. Kelly Clark.


Clark was a two-time Super Bowl champion, playing in San Francisco from 1979-87 before retiring.

The Clemson product was selected to the Pro Bowl twice and was named first-team All-Pro in 1982 after leading the league with 60 catches in a strike-shortened season.

He finished his career with 506 receptions for 6,750 yards and 48 touchdowns.

Former teammate Joe Montana released a statement on Twitter following the news:

"Dwight was a vibrant charismatic soul!! Jennifer and I are heartbroken over his passing. While we knew it was inevitably coming, it came way to soon! We are grateful for the decades of love and friendship we shared. We are praying for Dwight, his family and for all your prayers also. We will miss you dearly! Love Jennifer and Joe Montana."


Of course, Clark's most famous grab came in the 1981 NFC Championship Game against the Dallas Cowboys in a play forever known as "The Catch."

Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis last year and eventually moved to Montana during his final months. He lived close to former 49ers owner and Hall of Famer Eddie DeBartolo.

The 49ers celebrated "Dwight Clark Day" at Levi's Stadium in October, with several former teammates in attendance, including Joe Montana and Jerry Rice.

Michael Downs will be lurking in the background at the interment to be the 1st Cowboy to piss on his grave.
Do the right thing! Give Vince Young HIS Heisman Trophy! Jan. 4th 2006 he proved to the world who was the best player in college football for the 2005 season.
