Damn.

Rest in peace, man. You'll be missed. I'll raise a brew to you when I get home.

That was just completely tragic, even moreso by what proved to be the false hope from his squeezing the nurses' hand last night. A complete tragedy.

Seems like there have been a lot of somewhat high-profile atheletes who have had their residences broken into and who have been in some pretty frightening circumstances. Antoine Walker, for example, had his house broken into over the summer when he was there, and he ended up tied up (he might have been beaten up a bit, too). There was someone else, too, but I can't remember. You know that no one's breaking into Sean Taylor's house unless they're packing, too.

Absolute tragedy, regardless of whether he was a star or not.

When someone gets their **junk** blown off, it's hard to think that there wasn't a deeper motive.

This is really killing me. Sean had really turned his life around since the birth of his daughter. My thoughts are with his family, friends, and teammates.

this sucks....it's all over the radio and it really is a shame. I've been hearing ex-players and coaches crying on the radio. from all acounts, he was a changed man once he became a father and he was such a talent on the field. I don't know how the Redskins will be able to cope with this during the season.

It's kind of a shocker, hell of an athlete. I'll have one in his memory after work this evening.

This is just nuts. It seems like there is more here that we know yet, but it's sad none the less.

*shrug* Till all the details come out I'm goign to reserve judgement. Could be that the guy asked for it--- can't tell cuz all the news reports are so busy talking about what an angel he had become.

whether he "asked for it" or not, it's still sad...still a tragedy.
