19 February 2009


Last night, I was reading the SI with Cole Hamels on the cover when something caught my eye. Now, I'm not all into the motorcycle-jumpin' events at X Games. But when you hear that 24-year-old Jeremy Lusk died from brain injuries sustained while trying to complete a backflip off a 100-foot jump down in Costa, well, when you sustained brain injuries yourself not too long ago, it tends to affect you.
So, R.I.P. Jeremy, and may your family find some sliver of peace despite the tragedy of a young man dying an early death.
