Just a Few Links

The story of Broncos' wide receiver Kenny McKinley's suicide earlier this week was a sad, jarring bit of news. Woody Paige, the often much-criticized Denver Post writer and ESPN mouthpiece gives the story a personal slant. Very jarring, indeed.

What one gets out of Paige's story is how scary depression is, and how seriously one must take all of the signs. Kenny McKinley's life didn't need to end so soon, and so foolishly. I think we all know of some sadness in our lives. The question is always, how do we handle it?

Serious stuff, folks.

Then we have the topic of general asshattery, and who better than Fireman Ed Anzalone to sit front and center? The leader of fans of the J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS! apparently got a little frisky with a fan of Big Blue. Funny thing is, the Giants fan was "banned" from the Meadowlands, while that clown Anzalone was allowed to stay. They BOTH should have been tossed.

Sean Kilkelly has lately been on a music tear, with much of it dedicated to his love of The Who and Pete Townshend, but also with a nod towards Led Zeppelin. Sean posts video of Keith Richards (how is he still alive?) and defends the mighty Zep at the same time.

That's all for now. Off to see the Rangers play the Devils at the World's Most Famous Arena as owned by the world's worst owner (well, maybe not, considering Donald Sterling still runs the Clippers, and Peter Angelos in Baltimore, and others...OK...ONE of the worst).

Yes, that's right. I'm going to a hockey game. In September. It's called preseason, folks, and I'm happy to go.
