Hopefully the Texans honor his life with some type of pre-game moment of silence before kick off to that game.
I chuckled when I read this. It reminded me of that scene in The Hangover:
: What if he's dead? I can't afford to lose anybody close to me again. It hurts too much. I was so upset when my grandpa died.
: I'm sorry... How did he die?
: World War II.
: Died in the battle?
: No he was skiing in Vermont. It was just during World War II.
I may just be a callus *******, but I have no idea how you can be that tramatized by someone's death that you didn't know....that you're just now getting over it a year later. Neither event was like the World Trade Center attack where thousands died in one event. That was a shocker and people took it personal. These events were no different than what goes on every single day throughout the world.
