Unfortunately this happens too many times in sports.

This is why we should always get ourselves checked out before the season and sometimes during the season to find problems that might be underneath the surface.

Too bad this happened, but not the first time. We really need to take care of ourselves better and that includes me.

Let us get into "Good Trouble."

There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.

My sympathy to his family also. Fifty seems kind of young for this to happen, but at least he got to go while doing something he obviously loved. Would that we all have that opportunity......
