Steve "Air" McNair Killed
Happy Fourth of July Everybody
I just heard some sad news on ESPN while watching the USA vs. Canada rugby game. Apparently Steve McNair was killed by a Gunshot wound to the head in an apartment in Nashville this afternoon. Police confirmed there was a woman killed as well, both via gunshot wounds to the head. No word yet on whether McNair was murdered or if he committed sucide, but this is very sad news. He died at the age of 36.
McNair was a great guy, and an excellent, tough quarterback, and he will be missed.
UPDATE: It turns out that McNair was murdered by his 20 year old girl friend, who most likely committed suicide shortly thereafter.
Titans owner Bud Adams confirmed the quarterback's death in a brief statement released Saturday.
Adams called him "one of the finest players to play for our organization and one of the most beloved players by our fans. He played with unquestioned heart and leadership and led us to places that we had never reached, including our only Super Bowl."
