Sometimes, events happen outside the sports world that just give us pause.

The suicide of Robin Williams has seemed to be on everyone’s mind — in every sphere, from Hollywood, politics, sports, you name it.

How many of us … er … young pups remember him as the hilarious Mork from Ork from “Happy Days” and “Mork and Mindy?”

He has fleshed out his abilities as the years have gone by and become much more than a comedian, never forgetting about the men and women in the Armed Forces putting their lives on the line every day.

The legendary funnyman has been battling what he called his personal demons of depression and addiction for years and, unfortunately, they finally won.

Who in the sports world can’t relate after the well-publicized suicides of the likes of Junior Seau, Dave Duerson, etc.?

On the outside, these men and women seemed to have it made, that they have everything put together in their lives.

Who doesn’t dream about having fortune, fame, honors, celebrity and all the trappings of said celebrity?

For example, I didn’t know that my close friend, lifelong buddy and mentor Woody Paige — OK, just close friend! — my favorite pundit on the “Around the Horn” show on ESPN, especially because he writes those hilarious witticisms on the board behind him, admitted on Tuesday’s show that he had battled depression for years.
