"10-11-06 & Another Plane Strikes a NYC Skyscraper"

Unlike 09/11/01, where over 3,000 people died, this was a small plane:

It was like another shot heard around the world;

You see, the NY Yankees were eliminated from Postseason on Saturday, by the Detroit Tigers;

Today, a man was eliminated from the Game of Life, as his plane crashed 20 floors up on a 50 story building;

He was a husband & father, who had a passion for flying;

This passion cost him dearly, not unlike a prized Catcher, in August, 1979, only this time, he was a prized pitcher;

The Time was 2:45PM, at 524 East 72nd Street;

Cory Lidle was only 34;

Requiem In Pacem;

& Baseball is Quiet, Tonight;

A time to think & reflect & pray.

Awful stuff. I tried to comment earlier (from 8 to 10am) but blogger was down, then slow, and now back. Shea's rainout last night was a blessing for the players. And now 5 games in 5 nights. Go Metropolitans. The Tigers look to be unstoppable, heading home UP 2 zip. Take care ML.
