For those of you who were regular viewers of the "Today" show on NBC - you may recall the morning show crew talking to a man in the audience named Linny.
Linny was a Today show regular who waited patiently every morning outside of Rockefeller Center for the show to begin for 20+ years. Making appearances on the show is what Linny became famous for.
Sunday morning Linny died from complications due to a heart attack. He was 71 years old.
I had the chance to meet Linny when I was just 21 and visiting friends in New York City - he was seriously as cool as the other side of the pillow! Rest in Peace, Linny.
