Angels’ Pitcher Nick Aidenhart Killed at 22

r349544255This is the true definition of tragic. For those of you who don’t know Nick Aidenhart, he was a starting pitcher for the Angels. After struggling last year, the kid cracked the Angels’ 2009 starting rotation, pitched 6 scoreless innings on Wednesday against the Oakland As…father watching in the stands. That evening, him and his friends were struck by a drunk driver, 3 dead, 1 in intensive care.  Aidenhart was one of the top pitching prospects in the Angels’ organization. Only 22 years old, that’s right, 22 years old.  The person that ran the red light, well, suspected of drunk driving and arrested for felony hit and run. Hope he gets the damn electric chair… or better yet, just hang that c-sucker. Then you have jackoffs like NFL wide receiver Dante Stallworth driving drunk and killing an innocent civilian two weeks ago, pissing their lives away. Hope it was worth it Dante.  The difference between the victims, none.  The difference between the athletes, one who valued life in Adenhart vs. one who didn’t appreciate it Stallworth. The penalty for drunk driving should be some hard core jail time, if not death especially if harm is caused to others.  Maybe then people will learn that you can’t get away with drunk driving.  All you need is one slip-up to to ruin your life, the life of the person you hit, and the lives of everyone that knows you and the victim. Don’t endanger other people’s lives just because you don’t value your own. What a tragedy. Makes you take a moment and think…sometimes life’s not about winning or losing, money or fame, it’s just about living…R.I.P. Definitely too early for this kid, way too early.
