New York Plane Crash Kills Yanks' Lidle & Flight Instructor

This is just surreal. It's almost as if I don't believe it. I mean, I know it's true, but really? Did a plane really crash into a building in Manhattan? Was Cory Lidle really on it? I'm just shocked. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and his fans, especially his 6 year old son, Christopher. My thoughts and prayers also go out to the family of Tyler Stanger, Lidle's flight instructor.
This is so sad on two different levels. First, we lose a fine Major League pitcher during playoffs (granted, the Yanks were out, but still) and his flight instructor. Second, another plane hit another building in New York. I can only imagine what witnesses of the event thought or how scared they were. So sad. I hope they have a moment of silence tonight for him at the Mets/Cards game.

Rest in peace Cory Lidle and Tyler Stanger, God Bless You Both.
