It's a terrible tragedy, but perhaps it can be used to teach people how dangerous all kinds of extreme weather can be. We forget so easily.
Yeah, I saw that after reading the article. It's a shame that happened but it was preventable. I don't blame the Sox or Fox or MLB. Like I said, in summer it gets hot in July and August. There are heat waves almost every year. It's not like it was something that hardly ever happens. Every time something like this (heat wave, snow storm, etc) people act like this has never happened before and they don't know what to do.
