This morning I read on Yahoo! that a man at a Rangers baseball game fell out of the stands trying to catch a ball, fell 20 feet and died.
Woah. What a minute…a guy died at a baseball game? That’s awful. It’s an awful story. The man (I think) was a firefighter and went to the game with his 6 year old son. In one of the articles that I read, it said that the man went with his son before the game to get a new baseball glove in hopes of catching a ball.
This is awful, awful. I think a lot of baseball fans were really effected by this story. I was talking about this with my sister and my mom and I got to thinking. What about all of the other tragedies that happen every day. This particular story was an accident that happened to be in the public eye so lots of people got to hear about it. What about all of the other people who are caught in fatal accidents who barely get recognized and what about their families?
I just find it interesting that the media has been interested in this story when their are stories very similar that you’ll probably never hear about. It’s kinda depressing.
However, I’m deeply sorry for this family. Also, I can’t even imagine the pain of Josh Hamilton (who is also a christian by the way). My heart goes out to both of them.
Soooo, I got a new iPod today and I decided to name him Apollo, for several different reasons…
I’m so excited though. My last iPod was a pink 8G nano and not quite big enough to hold all of my music. Soooo now with my new shiny 32G touch, I’m in much better shape and very happy. Hooray for technology! (and late graduation gifts)
Face time? awesome.
