Wassup Sports!?!?!?!?

17 year old Cale's very opinionated view on everything sports.

The World Will Remember This Titan

leave a comment »

Sports is a release. It’s used for people to forget reality for three hours at a time, enjoy themselves, idolize heroes and, create memories that last a lifetime. In times of tragedy is when sports and reality meet. Thankfully, such thing is not a regular occurance, yet it seems to happen much to often. In these past weeks, many icons have fallen. Steve McNair is the first to effect the sport’s world.

Known as a gentleman, on and off the field, McNair was what people viewed to be what a pro is meant to be. Voted as the league’s CO-MVP in 2003, McNair may have reached the pinacle of his career in 2000. It was that year that he led the Titans to the Super Bowl, in which they lost the game by one yard.

Off the field, McNair started his own foundation to support causes near and dear to him and his family. Unlike many of thoday’s athletes, McNair kept his personal life separate from the game, and never had any type of public scrutiny or controversy in the time leading up to his death.

Today, July 4, 2009, McNair lost his life in the most unpredictable way. His death was violent, which was a cause he was so much against in his life. Besides the complete surprise of his death, and the uncertainty surrounding it, McNair was a great person to model your life around. Undoubtedly, his loss will be felt in the sports world by fans, players, coaches, and everyone who had ever had the pleasure of being graced by McNair’s prescence.

At this time, sports cannot be a release for many. Right now, it’s just a reminder of how short life is. A reminder of how precious life is, and that no matter how great of a person you can be, someone can tragically end your life, and the lives of others at a moments notice. No matter how wrong, this is the terrible reality, the reality¬†that sports is normally meant to break one away from. R.I.P. Steve McNair
