Even though this is on sbnation, the writer is legit and it is a very good article
That's an interesting and depression read. I remember there being initial reports that they didn't know how long he had been down there since the jump and that it was possible he jumped the night before and didn't die for hours. I'm guess I relieved that he died far quicker than that (and mostly that he didn't hurt/kill anyone else in the process)
So sad. You'd think with someone with his positive attitude and motor would have found a way to be crazy successful by now.
TFCIT. Hell of a read, and such a sad story. Rest in peace, Earl.
This photograph is virtually perfect. That's about all I can muster up to say.
Extremely heavy read
Read this earlier this morning, first part of the article got me teary-eyed. Very emotional read, fantastic writing.
Miss u Earl.

After reading the article I had to watch it again. The shot comes around 6:20. Getting choked up came immediately after. RIP, Earl.
Been avoiding this all day.
Wish I kept avoiding it.
Crying so hard here...just so terribly sad.
RIP Earl. We won't forget you.
This article kills me with guilt. There were quite a few times I was walking through the courthouse on my way to meetings/hearings/etc and I would recognize Earl. And he frequently looked so despondent. We would make eye contact and I thought about saying hi to him but I never did because I didn't want to be "that guy" who the former athlete can't get away from. I had heard that he had legal troubles and I suppose part of me deep down also didn't want to be involved with that. I'm not sure there was anything I or anybody else could have done, but he meant so much to me being a member of the Class of 2002, being at Cole that last night, being in Atlanta, chanting his name so frequently over the years... I just can't help but question myself.
AMAZING article though.
Very sad story. RIP EB.
