This is supposed to be a column about sports, yet after Tuesday's tragic events the relevance of sports in our everyday lives comes into question.
The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon lead me to question everything about the life I knew before Tuesday and certainly put my passion for sports into perspective.
I can honestly tell you that when I went to sleep Monday night, the one thing on my mind was the collapse of the Boston Red Sox and the turmoil my team was in. There were other things I was worried about as well; whether my fantasy baseball team could win in the playoffs, whether Texas A&M had the firepower to beat Texas this year and which players I should start this week in fantasy football were certainly the things at the top of my mental checklist. Unfortunately that is no more.
Since early Tuesday morning, I have hardly thought about these things. And when thoughts about them have crossed my mind, these thoughts have been in a vain attempt to take my mind from what has happened on the East Coast. Simply put, just three days after these things were my biggest concern, they no longer concern me.
