Some of you may be a bit weary of Cory Lidle coverage by now, and if that's the case, you are sympatico with Planet Haystack. The Maryland-based blog, as always, has a slightly different, definitely un-P.C. take on the entire affair. An excerpt:
Rodney Culver, a Detroit native who was Jerome Bettis' teammate at Notre Dame, was the Chargers' RB who, a year and a half after his Chargers were routed in the Super Bowl, died in that ValuJet crash in the Florida Everglades. Everybody forgot everything about Rodney Culver — but, that's what ya get for crashing into a swamp. ESPN educated us on the glory of flamboyantly crashing a plane into somebody's 40th-floor apartment in Manhattan. Swamps are filled with gators n' snakes n' slimey matter. NYC is full of pretty people with pretty apartments. Which is why there was a National Cory Lidle Day of Mourning.
We're not sure that we agree — we can assure them that New York is certainly not full of pretty people, and definitely not full of pretty apartments — but certainly worth a mention.
