Boxer Paco Rodriguez Dies After Title Fight: Francisco "Paco" Rodriguez, a super bantamweight title contender from Chicago, died Sunday night from injuries sustained during a championship fight against Teon Kennedy two days earlier. "At the end I asked him if he was OK and he said that he felt sleepy," said trainer George Hernandez. "I asked if he felt sick and when he said 'Yes, a little', that's when I started to scream for the doctor." Seven people will receive Rodriguez' donated organs, including an uncle who needs a kidney transplant.

Drood, we don't always agree, but you hit that one right on the button.

I won't grace the post by quoting it, but that comment in such circumstances is never in context.

Very bad form indeed.
