Tragic to hear of this. I just caught the crash flipping channels this afternoon. Watched it until the commercial and then went back to NFL action. I was shocked to later hear Dan Wheldon was killed in the crash. Very sad news for such a brilliant driver and from all accounts an outstanding human being.

Sometimes our sports are so sanitized and cleaned up we forget the true danger these elite athletes face. That's why I watched the crash, thought it was horrific and then surmised all was well... big mistake. Our thoughts are with the family and team.
