Peter Gent died (died). He wrote several books, none of them great, but one became a greatly entertaining movie starring Nick Nolte called North Dallas Forty.
His survivors deny that Sunday’s appalling performance by the Cowboys contributed to his death. “He hated the Cowboys,” said one family member, requesting anonymity. “He was there on the inside. He knew what total shits they are, top to bottom. If he cared at all, this would have made him happy.”
