Alex Vidlak, better known as ShortieCanBrawl or Shorts, was a SmashBoards regular common in the character discussion threads until his death in November 2014. He was well known for his love for the StarFox franchise
Shorts was a nice guy to be around even though he did have a few opinions concerning characters not everyone really agreed to, but his death took many speculators on SmashBoards by surprise.
On November 15th, 2014, Shorts was killed in a car accident. The news was confirmed by KumaOso, a member Shorts knew personally, twelve days later. There was even a Facebook page made in recognition of his passing away.
