A Little Perspective

Sad news from Rice University:

Dale Lloyd, a 19-year-old defensive back, collapsed on the field about 5 p.m. Sunday but was conscious when taken to a hospital by ambulance. He died about 9 a.m. Monday, school officials said.

He is survived by his parents, Dale and Abitibi Lloyd, and two brothers.

After all the whining and second guessing about the performance of our teams it's always best to acknowledge that it is, after all, just a game, no matter how much we think otherwise, and losing a game isn't near as hard as losing a son to it.
