    Re: Tragedy for the Humboldt Broncos

    Unbelievably sad news... I pray for the families, friends and fans of the men that lost their lives and I pray for the survivors who will deal with emotional scars long after the physical ones heal.

      Clarkson's Greg Moro played for them for three seasons.

      The GoFundMe campaign just passed $1,000,000.

          RCMP has upped total to 15 now. Truly heartbreaking and beyond tragic.

            This is such a horrible tragedy. My heart is breaking for the team's families/friends/fans/opponents. The bus trips are something I always think about when my beloved Colgate women's and men's hockey teams take to the road. Thinking of those in Humboldt.

              Looking at a picture of the crash site https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/07/w...bus-crash.html it is surprising that anyone survived.

                      The gofundme has eclipsed 3 million, currently around 3.2M.

                      While I'm sure it isn't entirely hockey community donations, I've gotta believe the majority are. It doesn't surprise me, but I'm always impressed with how the hockey community rallies around their own when times get tough, no matter where or who it is.

                        Hockey, especially non-NHL hockey, is really a close-knit group. There's a reason that there are friends in most any city when we travel. Niche sport with die-hard fans.

                        I may be crucified for this, but I feel it needs to be said. I feel for that truck driver, having to live with that guilt for the rest of his life. That weight on his shoulders....yes it's his fault from the reports, and he should feel guilt, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have major sorrow.....
                        Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                                I agree with you. When I was young, my mother was driving and didn't see a little boy rolling down his steep driveway on his bicycle. She hit him and he had a head injury...he lived, but she never really got over that guilt.

                                We're not perfect. Another reason why we should live every day to its fullest and be thankful for what we have.
