    Tragedy in Dallas

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...,1157840.story

    Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent is expected in court this morning over Saturday's charge of manslaughter after a car he was driving crashed and killed teammate Jerry Brown Jr.

    Police in the Dallas suburb of Irving said that Brent, 24, was driving at high speed on a state highway at 2:21 a.m. Saturday when the car slammed into an "outside curb, causing the vehicle to flip at least one time before coming to rest in the middle of the service road."

    Brown, who had been in the passenger seat, was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital a short time later. Brent suffered "minor scrapes" and was booked into the Irving jail, where he awaited arraignment, police said.

    "Officers at the scene believed alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash," police said, adding that Brent was given a sobriety test. "Based on the results and the officer's observations and conversations with Price-Brent, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated," Irving police spokesman John Argumaniz said at a news conference.

    Long you live and high you fly And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry And all you touch and all you see Is all your life will ever be.

    That is to bad, brown was on the ticats practice roster but we cut him. It was nice to see him land with dallas, being his favourite team. Sad.

    Brown's family has asked Brent to meet them at the airport and sit with them at the services.

    I still want to know why they were out drinking at 2 am when they have a game in a day and a half.

    I'm not saying that what happened was deserved, but it does seem like strange behavior.

    yeah but my job requires me to sit in front of a computer. It doesn't require me to be in peak physical condition.

    I believe you've posted on here that you've done 5k's and the like- do you drink 36 hours before a race?

    Yes and I've drank during the race too.

    Every July 4th during the Peachtree Road Race (10K) they offer free beer every few miles I've grabbed it numerous times.

    The hell night before I PR'd in a 10K I tied one on pretty good, woke up hung over, got to the race, puked and ran the fastest 10K of my life (45:21).

    Beer before a race is good for you. Every runner knows this.
