Pitcher Cory Lidle in plane that hit building in NYC.

Sad day for Yanks fans..my condolences. The game at Shea tonite is cancelled. Lidle started his career as a Met.

R.I.P. Corey... what a terrible thing to happen.

I remember that day like it was yesterday. Isn't that the way it is with days like that and today? Strange...

These athletes think they can cut corners..riding motorcycles, flying planes and helicopters.. too much horsepower and they hit an immovable object..damn sad.

Pretty sad - what a mess!

Fuck Lidle - how about those people who lived in that apartment building? I'm done with feeling bad for people who do stupid things...like flying a plane at low altitude in the big apple

Well luckily no one was killed in the bldg Al. But I totally see your point. As i said..he wasn't proficent at flying a fast plane. Like every other athlete that goes too fast too soon. Being invinceable is a trademark of being an athlete in the 21st century.
