NFL players tweet prayers for Henry


As the somber news of Chris Henry's accident began breaking, Wednesday afternoon, players across the National Football League began sending out their thoughts and prayers via Twitter. With scant, sometimes faulty information available about the Bengals wide receiver (Wikipedia briefly listed him as dead) many stayed in touch through Tweets from his agent Andy Simms and Cincinnati beat reporter Joe Reedy. Then, with his passing this morning the prayers turned to condolences for his family. Here's just a small collection.

I understand that if this wonderful
Football jock passes away (euphemism
for "dies") that the future God Blessed
NFL superstar Tim Tibow (or how the hell
ever it's spelled) will be available
to visit the undertaker and paint verses
of scripture under his eyes !!!!!!

Dood was a thug. Dozens of arrests during his illustrious career, and when he died, he was in the process of assaulting his girlfriend.

Where's the downside in all this? A violent, woman beating thug is off the streets at last. Rest in pieces, i say.
