Comedian/Actor Bernie Mac, 50, Passes Away
The sports world lost a friend in the entertainment industry today, as comedian/actor Bernie Mac died of complications from pneumonia at the young age of 50.
The most prominent examples of Bernie Mac's ties to sports are his baseball movie, Mr. 3000, and his turn as conductor for the 7th inning stretch at Wrigley (above). Cubs fans probably want to forget that game. Bernie Mac was also an avid golfer, and recorded this commercial with Tiger Woods for Nike.
He was a very funny man with a tremendous personality, and now he's gone. A moment of silence, please, for Bernie Mac.
