Sad News:

A few months ago, I made a quick post about Brendan Burke, mentioning how great it was that the son of Maple Leafs' GM Brian Burke (and a hockey coach himself) had openly admitted his homosexuality.  And I talked about how this was a very good thing in the realm of professional sports.

In super sad news today, Brendan Burke was killed in a car accident.  He was only 21 years old.


  1. Why does this deserve an ugly? Is someone afraid of the own sexuality?

  2. Possibly. But my guess is probably that they figured the simple fact that this person has died is rather "ugly", as opposed to "good"... or, rather, the the *topic* is ugly, as opposed to the *post*?

    Just my guess. Or it could be they're not leafs fans? I dunno. *shrug*
