President of the Rockies found dead.
« Topic Start: April 20, 2010, 01:34:05 PM »
My CNN app popped up and said he was found dead in a hotel room. I can't provide a link since I'm on my phone. I'll try and find one.

I fully expected this to be a joke about losing to the Nationals, but yikes.

No offense but he was found at 9AM and they are already declaring it was by "natural causes" . WTF, a 48 year doesn't die from old age!

Heart attack? Undetected aneurysm? Congenital condition already known?

Makes you think....you never know when your time's up.  I turn 40 this year.

I'm going home and hugging my children.

I'm a bit sensitive because a relative had a heart attack alone in a hotel room. Give time for the facts to come out, and for the family to deal, blue.

I'm not jumping on the guy. I don't like "natural causes". Hell his death may provide a clue into keeping somebody else alive.

It's not highly "natural" to die at 48.  Hope it wasn't one of those Lowell George things.

That's my point. When people are found dead at such a young age, Natural isn't what comes to mind.

The series will continue.  I think there is going to be a moment of silence before tonight's game.

From today's Post:

"... Willy Taveras, a former Rockie, said 'I'm surprised there is a baseball game going on.'"

Well, at least I wasn't the only one at least thinking about this.

I know re-scheduling a game or two is very difficult but, heck, if the president of my company just died in a hotel room . . .

Yeah but if the president of the Nationals was found dead, there would be a parade down Pennsylvania Ave.
