If you haven't seen Blazing Saddles, we're seriously worried about your choices as a human being.

One of the stars, a former NFL star who turned into an amazing comedy actor, has gone into kidney failure. You might know him: his name is Alex Karras.

And we are so saddened by this, because we are told that doctors say he only has a few days left.

At 77-years-old, he has led a long and wonderful life, but nobody wants someone so beloved to pass. He has been released from the Santa Monica hospital and into hospice care at his California home.

Here's what his old team, The Lions, had to say:

"We join his legions of fans from both sports and entertainment in prayer and support for Alex, his wife Susan, and his entire family during this most difficult time."

Count us in that group as well.

Alex, we hope you get better. If you can't, we will miss you dearly.
