2016 has been a bad year for entertainers. The last few weeks has been rough on retired football players also. Off Topic is turning into the obits lately.

NEW YORK – A popular member of "The Howard Stern Show" known to fans as Joey Boots has been found dead in his New York apartment. Joseph Bassolino was 49.

Police say Bassolino was unresponsive when emergency workers arrived at his home in the Bronx on Friday night.

A police spokesman who declined to give his full name says it appeared Bassolino died of natural causes.

Joey Boots gained fame on Stern's talk show for his photobombing and other antics.

Those connected to the show paid tributes on social media to the man who popularized the phrase "Baba Booey" on the air.

Stern tweeted "Tribute to the one and only Joey B in the new year. He will be missed."

    I was sorry to hear this the other day. Joey had his demons, but seemed to have gotten his life on track. Lord only knows who is going to watch over HPE now.

    Never heard of him.

    The reason:
    Howard Stern is neither interesting or my mind. He has no skills or talent. I never liked Jerry Springer or professional wrestling either...
    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.
