Fallen Falcon in the News

I read some disturbing news last week. Former Falcon Travis Claridge died from acute pneumonia in February of this year. ESPN reports he had intoxicating levels of the oxycodone, a pain killer, in his blood when he died. They say that he died from the combo of the drugs in his system and an enlarged heart. I suppose these athletes get fed pain killers all the time for injuries and stuff and get so used to them that they take too much. I think it is sad.
