    WOWOW. For anyone in the Toronto area watching the Leaf game tonight, Dave Hodge actually said "And our prayers and thoughts go out to the family & friends of Bruce Oake, a young Calgary native who recently passed." I saw Bruce had a picture with someone from CBC, but anyone in Canada knows that's something special coming from TSN Eastern primetime, during the (2nd, I believe) intermission.

    It's funny cause I actually showed my homies who the guy was cause they were all like "wtf, why are they shouting out a rando.." and I showed them his battles and told them how young he was and how much he meant to some members of the community there. Big ups.. I dunno if Daley or Sketch caught that since it was a TSN Eastern game but I'm sure some people definitely did a double-take when they heard that.

    i missed that man, thanks for letting us know though. dope to have him remembered on such a large scale. his friends and family also appreciate the battle rap community and how supportive and respectful it has been.

    ^Yea man for sure, I did NOT catch all of it, though I wish I did. But I heard Bruce Oake and I was in a little bit of disbelief hearing it. Like wow, that's crazy.. TSN sending a message of support during a time where audience is probably pretty high. I can only imagine how many people out there who heard it must have said "wow, I've heard of that guy" and then went on to digress how his battles made them laugh or smile, etc.

    From the Globe and Mail:

    Cybulski signs on with TSN Radio - The Globe and Mail

    "Finally, condolences to Hockey Night in Canada host Scott Oake and his wife, Anne, on the passing of their son, Bruce. Oake is one of the most decent people in the business, and our thoughts to go to him and his family. Donations can be made in Bruce’s memory to Simon House, 5819 Bowness Road NW, Calgary, AB, T3B 0C5."

    If you guys feel like you NEED to know what happened, just google it and it will pop up, but I feel it's not something to post about on a message board for everyone to see.

    This seriously sucks though...I remember when I heard about the 2 v 2 grand prix I was hoping Daley/Bruce B would enter, what a great duo...RIP. Shit's crazy

    Very sad to hear. Always sucks to lose someone so young, especially if they're close to us (battle rap community)

    RIP Bruce
