Married, With Condo
When I opened the paper this morning, I was shocked to read that Steve McNair, former Titans qb, was found in a condo in Nashville, dead of a gunshot wound. This was too much to process. Steve McNair? Shot dead? Found in Nashville in a ... condo? Now, surely I should have immediately thought of his family and friends, of this shocking loss, but no, I fixated on the condo. What the...? A condo? He and his family lived in a condo? Oh, but read on. He did not "live" in the condo. He rented it with a friend and it just happened to be located near an upscale area of nightspots and restaurants. Now, McNair is married and has 4 kids. So what the f... is he doing renting a downtown condo with a buddy? LOVESHACK, anyone? Maybe his wife knew, maybe she didn't care, maybe she was glad to have him dogging someone else and giving her a rest. Who knows, but I generally find this behavior odious. Just get a damn divorce, or learn how to control yourself and GROW UP! And, to make an already horrible story worse, a 20-year old girl also was found dead, shot, in the condo with McNair, age 36. Sad, sad, sad ... in so many ways.
