Get Better, Charlie

I am deeply saddened by the tragic auto accident that took the life of Ashley Roberta and left Charlie Davies and others with serious (although not life threatening) injuries.

I am really thankful to BigSoccer for giving me a voice that is heard by footie fans the world over. One of the appeals of the beautiful game is the tribal nature of the fans. There is plenty of ribbing-- most of it good-natured, some of it contentious, but all of it passionate.

But when something like this happens, it amazes how quickly those squabbles become insignificant. It reminds us that we are all part of one big tribe which occupies this floating blue/green orb we call home.

My thoughts are with the families who are affected by this devastating tragedy. I am very hopeful that Charlie and the survivors will pull through and make a full recovery.
