Tragedy struck the Kansas City area on Saturday morning. Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot and killed his girlfriend and mother of his 3 month old baby before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide in Arrowhead Stadium's parking lot.
How does a team, after suffering such a horrifying event, go out and play football?
To take the words from Coach Romeo Crennell, the Chiefs and quarterback Brady Quinn played and won on Sunday because they are football players and coaches and football is what they do on Sunday’s.
I know people probably thought playing the game was a bad idea, but I believe sports can start to help the healing process. I know, through my experience of losing someone close to me, I couldn’t sit around and think about it. I went to work and coached my team.
It gave me a break from thinking about my loss and let me focus on something else for just awhile. It gave me a positive outlet so I coulb begin the healing process.
That is what...
