Life's too short

With the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, there’s so much tragedy it’s almost mind-numbing. It’s getting difficult to watch on television.

So it almost seems small in comparison that the Chicago Bears suffered a loss over the weekend. Gaines Adams, a 26-year-old defensive end, died of cardiac arrest on Sunday.  Most Bears fans hadn’t gotten to know him because he hadn’t been there long. He arrived in October in a trade with Tampa Bay.

It’s not uncommon for athletes to die young. It’s just always sad.
