I remember it well; I was in my last year of the Navy; 6 months until I got out (was counting the days at this point). Walked into my squadron, and my Lt (who obviously knew I was a fan) told me about it.

I thought he was shitting me. at this time, we didn't have internet up and running in the office, so I had to wait until I got back to my barracks room to read about it.

That was a long day, and I was so sad.

Note: My BIL and 14 y/o niece were involved in a hit and run on 435 last Thursday; truck slid and rolled 600' and rolled 8 times. My niece was pinned upside down; they had to cut off her hair to get her out (it was wedged under something). Glass in her eyes; 2 broken wrists, broken thumb, staples in the back of her head..

WEAR YOUR MF seatbelts ya'all. She was have been dead (most likely) had she not.

was that a loss? I can't remember. I remember that was the flood game if I recall. I think the same one where my brother, upon returning from watchign the game at someones house, discoverd his 71 Z28 split bumper under water in the basement (one of those drive in/under basements some old ranch homes have). He had it since he was 15; yellow with black stripes.

sad day for him.

I was 13 years old, he was my childhood hero.

My God...13 years. Wow, I hadn't realized it was that long ago.

Always will be my favorite Chief.

The thing that makes that Seattle game even more special is DT didnít come at the offense from different positions. He lined up in the same spot all game long. The offense knew he was coming on every down and they could not stop him.

Does anyone have the tribute video they played at the stadium the season after his passing?

I was just a child when my dad told me about it. It was difficult to get a handle on what exactly happened, and I remember being pretty horrified.

I remember that I was riding home from a soccer game when I heard it announced on the radio. I didn't really understand the seriousness of the situation and I was thinking that he'd be able to make a recovery and return that next season.

I got real quiet and I cried a little in the back seat.
