    Jeff Howe of NESN with a good column on Barnes that brings some perspective to the day.

    Patriots Wide Receiver Tyree Barnes Reflects on Navy SEALs Tragedy in Afghanistan, His Own Experience in U.S. Military - NESN.com

    Though despite the somber news, Barnes does still have a sense of humor:

    Barnes also had a bit of a flashback Thursday when a group from the USO attended the Patriots' practice session. After, Barnes met with a group of them and signed a bunch of autographs -- joking that he skipped over the Army guys -- and shared his story with them.

    I'm like that with my son. He's an Infantryman with the 173rd Airborne, and I'm a former Navy Aircrewman. I tell him that I have his back all but 2 days of the year: The Navy's birthday, and the Army/Navy game. :D
