You Would Be a Upstanding Superhero

You are alert and observant. You can see through people easily. You know who's evil and who's good.

You need a lot of freedom in your life. You like to do your own thing, and you don't fit into any normal mold.

You understand people quite well and often know what others are thinking. Because of this, you can get people to do what you want.

You are a shapeshifter who fits in with almost any group. You can get along with anyone. You're quite flexible.

You are a true philosopher. You are thirsty for wisdom. You are trying to figure out the meaning of life.

Steve McNair died. I must admit that, until there were more of them in the NFL, I used to keep track of all the black quarterbacks. There had been a prevailing feeling that they didn't have the "necessities" available to lead a team. McNair was one of the best.

Do you know what I don't get? Murder-suicide, which is a working theory in this case. If proven true in this case, it would be unusual in that the it would be the woman who killed McNair before killing herself.

It's a weird tragedy in Nashville, but I haven't heard anyone comment on the fact that he was dating a 20-year-old while he was still married. Was he separated? Whenever something like this happens, it always seems like the athlete is cheating on a wife. Nobody seems to call them on it. I know in the world of sports, entertainment, and probably politics, there's an unspoken conpact between husbands and wives where the women trade fidelity on their husband's part for security, but it still seems weird that everyone is just reporting that McNair was killed with a young woman, without mentioning that he was married.

Greg- There are such reports on his relationship with the young woman - here, for instance. But it was largely a secret until the shooting; think Mark Sanford.

And if the girlfriend DID shoot him, one can only speculate on why; was he dumping her to go back with his wife?
