Winning isn't everything

My heart aches for Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy, whose 18-year-old son James was found in his apartment, dead of an apparent suicide, early this morning.

Dungy's Colts are 13-1 this season, and were undefeated before losing to the San Diego Chargers this past Sunday. Right now, they are far and away the best team in the NFL, heavy favorites to storm through the playoffs to the Super Bowl.

I'm certain that right now, none of the above means a darned thing to Tony Dungy. I don't know the man, but as a father, I'd wager he'd trade every victory for just one more day with his son.

Our sincere condolences to young James's family and friends.
