Bluhm was formerly of Detroit, according to friend Michael Marshall. His death also was announced before the Detroit-Kansas City baseball game. According to the Detroit Free Press, Bluhm wrote an insightful blog and loved the Detroit Tigers and other Detroit teams. Bluhm's parents, Dennis and Beverly, moved from Troy, Mich., to Louisville, Ky., when Brian was about 7, but his passion for Detroit sports had taken root, the Free Press reported. "If you only crossed paths with him once, it probably didn't leave an impression," Bill Ferris, who has known Bluhm for three years, wrote in a posting Tuesday on another Tigers' fan site. "But if you spent any amount of time with him online, he became an instant favorite because Brian was ... intelligent, thoughtful, considerate, and polite in all of his postings."
