    Will Ferrell wasn't the best, but a great drummer in his own right.

    Kobe Bryant just lost his life along with 4 others in a helicopter crash. You just never know when your day is coming.

    A server at work was the first one to tell me about Kobe, and at first I assumed it was another hoax celebrity death. Even after it was confirmed it didn't seem real.

    Well - one of my pet peeves in life is that others who perish in tragedies barely get a mention. I know that folks don’t mean to be insensitive in any way. But those other 8 lives lost are no less tragic yet don’t get acknowledged.

    Undoubtedly the passing of Kobe Bryant is heartbreaking.

    When you step back and try to make sense of why things like this are even allowed to happen, I couldn't help but think of how many extra hugs, kisses, and "I love you's" this tragic event has inspired today worldwide. That trumps the greatest achievements Bryant earned on the basketball court.

    I know for certain I made a point of going to give my two boys a few extra kisses this evening after they were asleep.

    The fragility of life...

    Cherish and treasure it.

    The names of the other people haven't been released yet. I think the only reason Kobe's name was is because of who he is.

    what an absolute tragedy. the LAPD had grounded their own helicopters due to fog so I wonder who cleared him for takeoff.

    he just had another daughter in June...a kid that will now grow up not even knowing her father except through TV and people's version. That scares me to death as a father.

    Sure they have...

    https://www.latimes.com/sports/story...licopter-crash

    3 out of 5 immediate members of the Altobelli family perished. Wow! Kobe with his daughter is heart breaking enough...almost an entire family lost in one tragedy.

    Not sure if you know who Kat Timpf is, but she wrote a great piece about this tragedy from the perspective of a former traffic reporter in LA who flew that area twice a day in a helicopter. She mentioned that with visibility that poor, she'd gone up countless times. It was kinda haunting.

    OK, but at the time only Kobe's name was released because of his fame...and most likely owning the helicopter. That doesn't mean that the other 8 people aren't as important, it just is what it is. Knowing about the coach on that bird doesn't carry the same weight as Kobe's name does.

    I can't even imagine the sadness of losing a child or my wife. It chills me to the bone to even have that kind of thought. its just a sadness that hits everyone on a primal level.

    It wasn't til dinner time last night that we knew the names of some of the others, but yes...Kobe was announced early.

    As for losing immediate family...I shudder to think.

    Why does the name John Altobelli, from the crash, sound familiar ?
    I feel like I know him from MLB decades ago.
    But looking at his profile, it looks like he just coached college.
    Did he have a relative that coached MLB ?
