Charlie Blackmon Breaks Foot, Author’s Heart

It’s a fact, of course, that into every life a little rain must fall. Author Carson Cistulli is prepared to accept that fact. What Author Carson Cistulli is not prepared to accept, however, is the news — courtesy Hardball Talk’s Matthew Pouliot and the internet, generally — that beautiful stranger Charlie Blackmon has fractured his left foot playing the only game he ever loved.

“How’d he do it?” maybe you’re asking. And, “Is it really the only game he ever loved?” maybe you’re asking after that. These are questions with answers, reader, but answers are of no concern to the grieving — even those grieving a faux grief for one (in this case, Charlie Blackmon) who is neither friend nor family nor even passing acquaintance.

    Here Carson (and truly, for all of us), this link represents both the loss and Charlie Blackmon’s most impressive contribution to technology (to date!). Also, while I can’t speak for all of us, I plan on remaining firmly in the Anger Stage of grief.
