A miserable thing
This is from a Michigan football supporters site
Last June, we put up a post about Sgt. Adam Knox of Whitehall, Ohio, showing off his Buckeye pride (see below) in a way even we here at the MZone could support. And while you know our history of poking fun at our Big 10 rivals to the south, in that post we said, "It's pictures like this that should make us all -- Bucks and Wolverines alike -- appreciate how fortunate we are to be debating college football in the blogosphere while folks like Sgt. Knox are putting their lives on the line day in and day out. A sincere thanks to him and his fellow soldiers."
Thus, it is with great sadness that we discovered on Deadspin that Sgt. Knox was killed over the weekend in Iraq when his patrol came under fire from enemy forces. He was just 21 years old.
Something for all of us to think about this weekend when we get too high after a big victory or too low after a bad call. This puts such "important" things in painful perspective.
Our deepest sympathies go out to the Knox family.
