R.I.P. Ryan Davis

I've made mention of the Giant Bombcast more than a number of times here in the past. I love it. By far my favorite gaming podcast and easily in my top three overall. Over the weekend the host, Ryan Davis, passed away. After spending nearly three hours a week since early 2009 with his voice and the rest of the GB crew it was a bit of a shock to see the news of his death. No clue how it happened, nor is it relevant, but he was 34 and I felt like I knew him just a bit. Sad times.

I got to meet him once in 2010 on the show floor at PAX East. He was clearly working. Moving fast, sweating and being followed by Vinny with a camera. When I called out his name and introduced myself he stopped and gave me his full attention. Chatted for and bit shook my hand and was on his way. He will be missed dearly by his friends and family for sure, but also by the hundreds of thousands of readers and listeners.
