    That's terrible.

    I had no idea that he had family overseas.

    My condolences.

    That is horrible. I just don't get it. I wish they'd all just come home.

    Wow. Like denverpatsfan, I didn't know he had a son stationed overseas. Really awful to hear that his son died.

    That is awful news.

    Quite frankly, I don't know how military families go about their lives normally. Watching Bob over the last few years, you'd think a crack or two would show.

    Really terrible news indeed.

    I'm embarassed to admit that one of my early thoughts on this was that I was bummed that we would likely not get to read Bob Ryan on the Super Bowl. I guess that's a function of how wrapped up I am in this game, the fact that the Globe and Herald have so few solid columnists and how much I enjoyed Ryan's columns after SBs 36, 38 and 39.

    And that reaction of course obscures the horrible reality facing the Ryan family. I can't imagine losing a child.

    Me either. I haven't seen this anywhere else yet, maybe the reporter should have held off on the news for a bit.

    I'm sorry...I was not trying to say anything negative (or unclassy). I was just saying that I wished our soldiers could come back home from Afghanistan and Iraq. It was not a political statement at all.

    Incredibly sad regardless of the circumstances.
