Born under a bad sign

Former Dodgers pitcher Steve Howe killed in car accident. Updated: this article has additional details. I was raised a Dodgers fan and followed them fanatically until about the mid-80's, when I was turned off by the combination of player's greed and arrogance and the discovery of a much more exciting game: hockey (well, not the way the Kings played it this season, but you know what I mean). Steve Howe was so freaking talented, it was a joy to watch him pitch. He should have had a long, spectacular career in Dodger blue. And it was painful to watch his downfall over the years. Some people just can't seem to stay out of trouble. It's always a shame to see someone fritter away God-given talent. Rest in peace (finally) Steve, and my condolences to your family and friends.
