wow... Pat Tillman was killed in combat...

For those who don't know, he was a strong safety for the Arizona Cardinals. Walked away from a $3.6million NFL contract after September 11th to enlist in the army. Apparently he was killed in combat today (or at least it was reported today).

Is it? I mean, he gave up riches to go fight and die for his people. That's a damn movie he had for a life. Go him.

ah... well yeah, I do have the utmost respect for his decision. So yeah, go him on that... But, on the other hand, he is like dead and stuff... that's gotta suck.

I find it a bit odd that lots of people are talking about how smart he was, when he walked away from millions of dollars to go get himself killed. I don't think "smart" is the word for someone like that, especially if he's got a degree in Marketing. Brave, patriotic, noble, maybe.

Well, at least he got sent to Afghanistan instead of Iraq; it'd be worse if he'd been killed in a war that has nothing to do with terrorism except as a flimsy pretext when he was motivated by 9/11.

yeah... people always find the weirdest things to compliment the dead on. I also don't like the term "untimely" death... aren't pretty much all deaths untimely?
