    From the Arizona Republic, May 25:

    FLORENCE, Ariz. -- Robert Comer died Tuesday with a steady gaze and a defiant smile on his face, the first person to be executed in Arizona since November 2000.

    He was strapped to a gurney and covered up to his neck with a sheet.

    There was no sight of the catheter into his groin that made the lethal injection possible, no sight of the executioners on the other side of a wall.

    But Comer was smiling; he had petitioned the federal courts to stop his appeals and hasten his own execution. He was in control of his destiny.

    Comer brought a picture of his daughter with him to the death chamber and used his last words to say, "Go, Raiders."

    Then, the chemicals coursed through his veins - first Sodium Pentathol to render him unconscious, then pancuronium bromide to stop his breathing and paralyze him, then potassium chloride to stop his heart - and he held that smile until he slipped away.

    Now that, fellow Patriots fans, is a loyal fan!

    Yeah, I work out here in Oakland....

    I got a bunch of e-mails and IMs from coworkers about this, almost gloating. The funny thing is that they all actually wish that guy switched places with the owner.

    my dying words will be: "Thank you Mo Lewis!"

    Prior to his last words of "Go, Raiders!", Comer quizzically looked up and said "What's a tuck?".

    Classic. Not altogether shocking, really.

    I wonder, was he dressed as Hawk, or as Animal, at their home games?
