The Dead Zone

Many, many deaths in the past week. Dennis Johnson hit lead-off, expiring after a heart attack at the end of a NBDL basketball practice, after he had reportedly let his weight rise to 320lbs, far above his playing weight of 182. LaDainian Tomlinson's dad died in a single car accident along with his brother-in-law when the truck they were driving flipped over, expelling them from the vehicle. Zydrunas Ilgauskas lost a set of twins when his wife gave birth to stillborns earlier in the week. Finally Damien Nash died yesterday after collapsing in a charity basketball game, becoming the second Denver Bronco to die this year. It is doubtful that such a series of unexpected and tragic deaths could have even been predicted by the great clairvoyant Christopher Walken. Note: Adrian Peterson's brother also died during the same time period after being shot multiple times over the weekend.
