As word of the Virginia Tech shootings spread, my first thought was for David Wright. His brother Stephen is an engineering student there and I knew David spent a lot of time in Blacksburg during the offseason.
Thankfully, Stephen Wright was not in the area at the time.
Now comes word that was one of the victims was Brian Bluhm, a 25-year-old Tigers fan who was a regular on the Motown Sports message board. He posted under the name Estrepe1.
I don’t know Brian but he was a probably a lot like us in that he had something to say about his favorite sport and he went on the web to say it.
Were I a better writer, I could put this into some kind of perspective. For now, here’s hoping the Tiger fans find a good way to remember one of their own.
