    Damn...that sucks.

    Article noted his brother (a year older) received a heart transplant at one point. I wonder if heart trouble runs in the family - seems to be the case.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Broncos RB Damien Nash dies

    From Broncos.com

    By Andrew Mason
    DenverBroncos.com

    INDIANAPOLIS -- For the second time in less than eight weeks, the Broncos have lost one of their own.

    Running back Damien Nash, who joined the team in training camp last year and played in three games, passed away on Saturday.

    Nash was 24 years old.

    "The Denver Broncos organization is once again struck with profound sadness over the tragic loss of one of our players," President/CEO Pat Bowlen said. "This is a tremendous tragedy and our hearts go out to the entire Nash family."

    "The Broncos family has suffered a great loss with the passing of Damien Nash," Head Coach Mike Shanahan said. "I am stunned and deeply saddened by this tragedy, and send my deepest condolences to Damienís family."

    Nash, a product of the University of Missouri, joined the Broncos after the Tennessee Titans waived him during training camp and used a big game against his former team to help cement a place on the practice squad when the regular season began in September.

    Two months later, he was promoted to the 53-man roster and played against the Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs. He ran for 66 yards on 18 carries in those games and added 41 yards on four receptions before being deactivated for the final month of the season.

    Nash's most memorable game from an individual perspective came on Sunday Night Football against San Diego on Nov. 19. That night, he gained 52 yards on 10 carries, with 32 coming on three consecutive snaps during a second-quarter touchdown march. He finished the evening with 88 yards from scrimmage, including 36 on three receptions.

    But perhaps the most important game of his career came on Aug. 19 against the Titans. That night, he saw his only action of the preseason and solidified his place with the team, running for 72 yards on 14 carries that included a 1-yard, third-quarter touchdown. Two weeks later, he was signed to the practice squad after being released at the final cutdown, where he remained until he was promoted to the 53-man roster on Nov. 12, just before the game at Oakland.

    Re: Broncos RB Damien Nash dies

    this was quite the shocker when I read the denver post yesterday, and on the same day a denver zoo keeper was mauled to death by a jaguar. Not a pleasant front page to to read on the web to start the weekend in the mile high city.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
