Live-Streaming The Love Life And After-Life Of Steve McNair

McNair's best friend Robert Gaddy says, despite all glaring indications, Mechelle and Steve weren't getting for a divorce. Nope, the happy couple was buying a new home together. Now stop asking him about the 20-year-old girlfriend.

Here's the overriding sentiment summed up by John McClain of the Houston Chronicle (not the one who thwarted a terrorist attack at Nakatomi Plaza): "He was real good most of the time and great some of the time. But I don't think he was great enough long enough."

Kazemi was planning on redecorating. She tried to sell her furniture via Craig's List the day of the murder:
