Though the crashing of a boat at 3am may seem obscure, there has been no findings of drugs or alcohol involvement as of yet. Further research needs to be conducted and the autopsies need to be completed still. However, regardless of the findings, we know we lost one of the brightest stars in sports at 3am on September 25th, 2016.
RIP Jose Fernandez. You will be remembered.

Palmer was an ambassador of and for the game of golf even after his playing days were over, that much is quite obvious.
RIP Arnold Palmer. You will be remembered.
September 25th, 2016 resulted in the loss of one of the brightest and youngest sports stars in the world and the loss of one of the greatest sports figures to ever walk the earth. This is a day to remember. I encourage all sports fans to think deeply about what we lost today.
