Just plain sad

This isn't a rip, I just wanted to say a few quick words about Chris Henry. It's a sad, sad thing that the Bengals WR is fighting for his life after finally seeming to put his demons in the past.

If Henry doesn't come through this incident, he'll leave three children he was raising behind, and that's awful. As someone who had a close family member go through a life-threatening car accident I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

This may be an incident that could have happened to anybody. I have no idea. But I can't help but think, once again, that some athletes, especially football players, just don't place enough importance on their own health and well-being.

  1. The lesson we can take away from all of this? Don't jump into the flatbed of a pick-up truck when the driver is your pissed off fiance who, thanks to her anger, most likely isn't going to practicing the safest rules of the road.

    R.I.P., Chris. You were always an exciting player to watch.
