LaVar Hurt

LaVar Arrington was injured, apparently pretty seriously, in a motorcycle accident today. One has to figure that this is the end of his career, given he was barely holding on as it was, cut after one season by the Giants. It makes me sad, because LaVar in spite of his short prime is one of my all time favorite athletes. I just loved watching him play for the Redskins. He had such energy and passion and was a great, bright guy off the field as well. I hope he's cool with the way the past few years have gone, as he's caught a lot of bad breaks. And geez, athletes need to cool it with the motorcycles. I don't understand why anyone rides a motorcycle given how they dangerous they are. But athletes? They're you're risking so much more given your career rides with your physical wellbeing. And riding without a helmet is just dumb. It's a shame.

Hey, at least he went to the Pro Bowl, unlike the injury-prone stiff known as Courtney Brown.

There's always the CFL... we'll take him when he can stand tri-pedal again.
