And why should we care?

Narcissists don't---unless it pertains to them.

Twitter BNO is the fastest news source without a doubt; 30-60 minutes ahead of Drudge

Guess he couldn't handle the pressures of owning a reestaurant

Dumbest comment of the thread. He got stressed out so somebody shot him?

Yeah, they are really on top of things.

A lot of people around here blow off posts because they source Twitter, but BNO has been accurate and fast.

"Fox News just confirmed. Says he was shot."

Fox reporting a woman shot dead in same room. They are calling it a double homicide...no mention of suicide.

"FOX called it a double homicide!"

As morbid as this may sound, I hope it is indeed a double homicide and not murder/suicide. The latter always feels that much more tragic and senseless.

I got a friend “in the know” who told me it is a murder/suicide. Won’t say which one was the shooter, though.

Thanks for the update. Probably 'love' gone wrong - if that's true.

He's so young! What a tragic waste of life.

Anyone wondering why FOX and others will keep a helicopter’s camera trained on a stolen van for two and a half hours while news readers speculate on nothing, FR now has 150 comments on a “story” no one knows anything about. A society desperately in search of entertainment. Incredible.

RIP Air McNair.

His official bio says he has four sons

"...married to wife, Mechelle, 6-21-97 with four sons, Junior, Steven, Tyler, and Trenton"

How sad. The kids seem to have lost both parents.

Most would have assumed they are sports teams I imagine. You could probably find out with a quick google search and keep your sheltered life a secret. The word "quarterback" is a pretty good hint.

Uh-oh.

WSMV is backtracking now. Won’t confirm wife is killer.

Perhaps it IS a double homicide.

I was just watching a game I taped from last year where he was the QB. Shocking.

I think it was McNair whose mother was a flight attendant who switched flights to be present when Steve signed his contract with the Oilers...saving her life. The flight she missed crashed and all on board were killed.

IIRC, that was Eddie George's mother.

Steve McNair was a very polite Mississippi homeboy.

I met him a few times here in Nashville...very very non pretentious

former Titan QB...and I haven't followed football for 20 years

You are correct. My kids and I met Steve McNair and they got his autograph when the Oilers were in training camp in San Antonio. We were there to get Eddie George’s autograph — he stood and talked to my son when he found out we were originally from Ohio.

Oilers were a great bunch of guys to the kids that showed up for their camp. McNair was a class act and shame this had to happen.
