Pat Tillman Killed in Iraq

I'm a big football fan. I live for Sunday in the fall. A couple of years ago, Pat Tillman of the Arizona Cardinals gave up a big paycheck and the best of his playing days to join his brother in the Rangers - as in, US Army Rangers.

Today comes word that Tillman was killed in Iraq.

Man, that depresses me. Like all wars, this one took one of the best and the brightest.

Update, 10:30EDT: It's now being reported that Tillman was killed in Afghanistan, not Iraq.
