It's been a few days now since the wind beneath my wings was snuffed out and destroyed, needlessly, by a fellow tribesman. It'll be even longer until I, and the team can 'move on' from a battle injury that ended the life of one of our captains so far from the action.. It is one thing for a brethren to fall honorably in the heat of battle; and another thing entirely for him to fall in the goat pasture one town over as the rest of the team readies for the next attack..
Ok, so clearly I'm still emotional... Sigh.
Question for me now is if after last season, and now this season, of tragic O-line injuries involving the same guy should result in a nickname.. I mean, i am absolutely sure that DeCastro feels really bad for his teammate. I'm POSITIVE he must have watched the replay over and over again as one replays the last moments before a car wreck that can never be taken back. No last second decision to go a different direction this time if given the chance.. No do-over on this one. The pain is real for all of us, him included.. Sigh.
when DD came into the league, I wanted all of us to call him 'Destro' after one of the most iconic villains of my childhood. Now, that is parlaying into the nickname 'Desastro'.. That is all...
