"It would make a nice story if..." We see & hear these words all the time when a tragedy strikes a team and writers try to make something real that isn't. Take the Washington Redskins and the the death of Sean Taylor for the most recent example. Of course the media should cover such a story, but it's not their responsibility to drum up another "It would make a nice story if this spurred the Redskins on to vicotry!" story. I think these things are so fairy tale-ish it's ridiculous. Who would it be a nice story for? Why is it a nice story? Does having a team mate die entitile a team to championships? Sean Taylor's story immediately reminded me of the 2005 season when Dungy's son committed suicide. Right away the "It would make a nice story if..." started up across the country. Guess what? To me it would NOT have made a nice story. Damn, writers and commentators almost act as if God is immediately on the side of any team that endure's tragedy. that some magical power will fill each player with skills he has never had and the team will slay all the others. I doubt God cares much for which teams win in professional sports and having a team mate die does not make all the remaining players martyrs. I guess I was board, so thanks for letting me get that off my chest!
