    I don't mourn the death of a celebrity or athlete any more or less than I mourn the next guy. In the cosmic sense, it is an insignificant and trivial event. That being said, Sean Taylor was a treat to watch play safety. He was gritty, he hit harder than anyone on both sides of the ball and was prone to entertaining melt-downs on the field (spitting in people's faces was a favourite past-time of his). He leaves behind a potentially brilliant career and will be tough for the Redskins to replace.

    He was 24 and had a kid... I think of that more than anything he did on the field.

    "It's hard to expect a man to grow up overnight," Portis said. "But ever since he had his child, it was like a new Sean, and everybody around here knew it. He was always smiling, always happy, always talking about his child."

    There are also those who say one's life-style will determine their 'death-style'. It's just sad that a young life is gone now due to violence. I'd feel the same way about a stranger who did not play NFL or was not a celebrity. Needless death sucks.

    From what I understand someone had broken into his home a week or so earlier and left a kitchen knife on his bed. So if the two events are related in any way it looks like the killing was premeditated and intentional murder. But, it is interesting to me that he died from a leg wound as opposed to a head wound or something. I am interested to see if there will be more to the story.

    Sean was an excellent Safety. When he hit someone you could really hear the pop. He missed a lot of tackles but knew how to go after the ball. Being that he was in the NFC East division I watched him often and knew he had fire on the field. I know he wasn't perfect but as a sports fan I just hate to see things like this happen. I know it happens all over the World too but I wish it wouldn't.

    They were talking with someone on Jim Rome today who said the phone lines were cut, and a door was kicked in. I don't know how accurate that info is... but sounds like something a thief would do. I had heard about the knife also.

    What's this about a monster under the bed?

    I know about the artery, what I meant was, there were only two bullets fired from what I had read. Normally if someone is trying to kill you and have a few more bullets they might not be satisfied with just a bullet in the leg. They might go for a head shot of a few in the upper body. That was the only point. Sorry I didn't make it clear.

    It does sound like a thief, I was just wondering if the two events were tied together and if it was a warning of intent to do physical harm.

    The Monster thing was me just thinking I don't ever want to sleep again wandering what kind of monster might attack in the night. 😲 YouTube

    I'm hearing on the radio that there are 3 suspects (1 teen, and 2 guys in their 20's)

    Detained, suspects in Florida.

    I can't find the news online however.
