    That's horrible. Bad things always seem to happen to the good guys, it seems.

    LaDanian Tomlinson of the SD Chargers is one of the nicest guys in the league, on and off the field. It is a sad day. May your family members RIP, LT

    In other news, many people related in no way to someone famous also died over the past week, but are not worthy of mention.

    I was thinking that too. I mean not to sound insensitive, but how is this a "news" story? I know plenty of people that have been killed in wrecks, have see plenty of wrecks after the fact and never see mention on the news. I am sorry for the guys loss, but this really isn't news for anyone, other then those it affects.

    To many people, the untimely death of the father and brother of the 2006 NFL MVP, and all-around highly respected player, is a hell of a lot more tragic and noteworthy than the death of Anna Nicole Smith, or her son (or anything to do with Britney Spears, etc., etc.). Yet, the media will be devoting an embarrassing amount of time and resources to that story for the indefinite future.

    LaDainian is the good guy I referred too. Obviously complex thoughts don't come across too well on Internet message boards.
