"Don't Drink and Drive...Just Don't"

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in , ,

As I'm sure all of you have heard by now 22-year old LA Angels pitcher, Nick Adenhart was killed yesterday in a car crash driving home from his impressive season debut. Absolutely tragic news. As the story developed, it was revealed that his car was involved in a three car wreck, caused by a drunken driver.

My heart dropped when I heard this news, and it dropped even further when I learned that Adenhart wasn't the only person killed as a result of some asshole's poor judgment. Two others had died.

As if it couldn't get any worse, I stumbled across Matt Clapp's article on Sharapova's Thigh. Apparently, one of those other two people was Matt's best friend, who was with Adenhart during the accident. This made me feel even more terrible knowing a new friend of mine has lost someone they cared so deeply about. Detroit4lyfe's thoughts and prayers go out to Nick Adenhart's family, Henry Pearson's family, Matt, and all of their grieving friends.

That being said, the Tigers home opener is winding down and we're absolutely spanking Texas. Cabrera has six RBI's on his way to 200 this season and Galarraga looked filthy, in the words of Rod Allen. It feels like nothing could ruin this day. But something can, and that's if you decide to drive home after you have been drinking. Nothing could be dumber than drinking all day for the Home Opener and then getting in your car and driving home. The World of Isaac, fellow Detroiters, had a great pre-game post warning fans not to drink and drive and to make smart decisions today. That decision is easy, people: Get a freaking DD.

That is all for now.
