ONN – Cedric Benson, NFL Chicago Bears,Texas Running Back, Agent Scott Parker’s First Client, Died
Cedric Benson RIP. I went to sleep at 7:38 am, after a night of working and talking with family, but also thinking that something was wrong, and just woke up to this news.
Cedric Benson was not only the famed Chicago Bears Running Back and Texas Alum, but the first client of my friend Sports Agent Scott Parker, when he went out on his own. Previously, Scott worked for Leigh Steinberg as his right hand for years, and was on my Super Bowl Oakland Committee.
But this shows that you should appreciate every moment of life and thank God for being alive. This is not promised to us at all. I don’t know what happened to Cedric Benson for him to die at 36 years old. Only this is a tragedy.
My sympathies to his family, to Scott and to The Chicago Bears and Texas.
Update: Benson was said to have died in a car crash.
Oakland News Now Note: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network. This is a major part of our new approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and also seek interested content and media technology partners.
