Just heard about the passing of basketball legend Kobe Bryant in a helicopter crash, and I wanted to make note of it here.
My interest in basketball has waned in the past few years, mainly because the NFL season has gotten longer. Once the Super Bowl ends, there’s a few weeks before the start of MLB season. Not a lot of room in-between for the other sports.
There’s no denying Kobe was (and it is so weird to use the word “was”) a tremendous talent to the game of basketball and to the sports world – and it is incredible that his life after basketball has now been cut short as it has.
My condolences to his family and to the sporting world in general – this loss is going to sting a bit.
