I just hope and pray every night that this doesn't negatively effect the performance of Nate or the rest of the Team in the upcoming season.

I used to work with Cainan. He was always very kind and professional to everyone that worked around him. Nice guy. I can't believe this happened to him.

Cainan has always been a wonderful kid and I am happy he is working hard on redirecting his life now that he is a young man. When he was a little boy, he was the only one of the group of kids that would look me in eye and say "hello mrs....how are you". For a 12 year old boy running around the creek in our neighborhood I thought that was quite remarkable!
I feel he will be a participating contributor to our community when this nightmare is all over....
All the best to you Cainan and your loving family.

Well I for one am glad that he now has a place to regularly concentrate on bulking up those pecs. He'd been looking kind of flabby recently.

Maxine: What about what happened to the people he hurt. Nothing "happened" to Cainan, he made the decision to get drunk and drive. And yes, it wasn't the first time he chose to do so. It's just by the grace of God no one was killed.

BTW Debbie: Polite children and adults drive drunk and do drugs even in Danville!!!!

Yes Fan in Chief, God forbid it messes up Nate's catching. I mean, that's certainly a far higher priority than splattering a few pedestrians with one's pick-up truck.
I assume your post was tongue in cheek?

Maxine:
So, you're blaming the devil, not Cainan for what happened? Hope a drunk driver never hurts or kills you or one of your loved ones. Praise the Lord!

Derek,
How dare you imply such salacious things. The only thing between my cheeks is a set of bowels full of nothing but love for the Team and its indomitable Will.

Thank you Maxine for the comment. Yes lots of people drink, drive drunk and do drugs in DV but the wise ones stay away from that mess. I am hoping that Cainan will learn that lesson too. Time will tell!
