Cory Lidle Dies In Plane Crash

All I can really do is echo Joe's sentiments. The news of a plane hitting a building in New York is always enough to freak out New Yorkers. While everyone waited for information to come in (was it a terrist attack? an accident?) it finally came in that the pilot of the plane was none other than New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle. This news freaked everyone out anew.

Obviously, it is sad whenever anyone dies in an accident, but it becomes that much "sadder", it seems, when the person is a well known figure (though I always argue that this is silly - a celebrity life is certainly worth no more than anyone else's).

So as authorities sort out exactly what happened to this New York Yankee, the rain will probably force the other New York team to postpone its playoff game this evening - an accidental tribute, perhaps, to Mr. Lidle.


  • One reason it freaked me out more than usual was because he was a good guy, a family guy. He wasn't just someone you would forget and say the world was better without him.
