I am saddened that a sports figure in our state would go out and drive drunk  only 72 hours after a major sports figure, and two others, were cut down by a repeat drunk driver in California.  I know what everyone thinks  – it will never happen to them.  I don’t want to preach – I just know all too well drunk driving does not discriminate.  

Mr. Paul needs to take a step back and consider himself  fortunate that he didn’t seriously injure himself or somebody’s mom.

Don’t think the irony doesn’t hit home hard when you consider that Joba Chamberlain was just setenced  here in our state for drunk driving – a Yankee’s Pitcher.  When you make the choice to play sports, be it collegiate or professional, you make the choice to set an example – like it or not.

This time we are looking at a Major League Baseball player who had his life and career cut short because someone made the choice to drive drunk – it is that simple.  Our hearts go out to the family of Nick Adenhart – here at MADD we know all too well there was no time to say good by.

 A man got into his 2,000 pound bullet and aimed it right at  the oncoming traffic.  We should not overlook that one person took three lives and then tried to flee the scene. http://losangeles.angels.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20090409&content_id=4179446&vkey=news_ana&fext=.jsp&c_id=ana

Not long ago we, Nebraskan’s, had our own taste of sadness when Joba Chamerlain, Yankee pitcher, made the choice to drink and drive. 

The only thing to say here is I hope those impacted by the crash seek support from MADD.  That’s what we do –

In memory of Nick Adenhart
