The Virginia Tech Tragedy

Up until now, we haven't mentioned the horrific massacre that took place at Virginia Tech. This isn't due to a a lack of concern or respect. Quite the opposite. Like much of country, I have been glued to the television since I first learned about the tragic events in Blacksburg.

Although, I don't know why I continue to watch. While new information on the specifics of the fateful day continue, and will continue, to trickle out, the basic fact - 32 innocent people killed by deranged individual - hasn't changed. I guess, like many others, I keep waiting for The Answer that will never come: Why?

So I suppose I've been avoiding this post because what can we, a humor-based college football blog, possibly have to say about events and evil beyond comprehension? But to ignore it here on this site didn't seem right either.

Thus, I'll simply say that our deepest condolences go out to the friends, families and loved ones of those injured and killed during this time of unimaginable pain. I can only hope those personally affected by this heinous crime can take some small comfort knowing that they are in the thoughts and prayers of millions of people across the country.

Update: Virginia Tech canceled spring football practice and the team's annual spring game as a result of Monday's murderous rampage. The game had been scheduled for Saturday.

Brian Bluhm was an avid and very knowledgeable Detroit Tigers fan. He was a regular contributor at www.motownsports.com. Brian was also an engineering student at Virginia Tech, and was one of the victims of the tragedy there the other day. The Tigers announced his passing before their game yesterday
