R.I.P. Steve McNair

Twitter was all ablaze Saturday afternoon even before mainstream news was reporting the death of former NFL quarterback Steve McNair, who died from 4 gunshot wounds early Saturday morning. McNair was found in his rented condo along with female companion Sahel Kazemi, who was apparently killed by one gunshot wound. Police have ruled McNair's death a homicide, but haven't determined if Kazemi's wound was self inflicted although a semi-automatic pistol was found near her body. McNair, 36, who was married with 4 sons, apparently had begun a relationship with the 20 year-old Kazemi in the past few months. He had purchased her a 2007 Escalade as a birthday present.

I guess it would be easy to rule this a murder-suicide, but sometimes things aren't what they seem. In any case two lives have been lost tragically, and in a senseless manner. McNair was truly one of the toughest quarterbacks to ever play, and from all accounts a good guy. Kasemi was only 20, and had her whole life ahead of her. Prayers go out to the families of both.

You are the first to give condolences to the families of both Kazemi and McNair. Everyone else has just spoke of their grief over the loss of McNair.

All life is precious and no life should be taken needlessly. Blessings.
