Sad News

When I got the news that there was a shooting at Virginia Tech, I was stunned.

When I heard it was in the Engineering Building, it hit way too close to home, since I was in my campus's equivalent.

When I wasn't getting minute-by-minute updates on the stellar performance last night by Andrew Miller and Mike Hollimon, I started to feel a void.

When somebody I knew still wasn't heard from late into the night, I started to feel worried.

When I found out I lost a friend, I felt sick.

RIP, Brian.


Special thanks to Curtis Granderson and his publicity director John Fullmer who have been very helpful in spreading his story through the organization. As if he wasn't already, Granderson has skyrocketed to the top of everybody's favorite Tigers list.

I'm sorry about your friend, man. By reading his posts here and on other boards he really seemed like a genuinely nice person. I think its great that he kept his passion for Detroit sports even though he no longer lived here.

Brian sounded like a great guy and after reading his posts, a smart guy. It is a tragic lose. With friends like you he will remembered for a long time.

Eddie,

I'm still trying to come to grips with what all went on in Blacksburg. I'm a Hokie and a die-hard Detroit fan of all sports. While my heart aches at the events of last week, my pride swells to see that one of my fellow Hokies has touched so many.
