Five years ago today New York Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle crashed his plane into a New York City apartment building. There were tornado warnings in Columbus. The woman I just met at the airport for the first time and I watched this from a restaurant that burned down two months later. Early the next morning, our neighbor died.
Thus began the craziest year and a half of my life, and hers. Nothing was supposed to happen. but it did.
She called me a dick the other night. Her accent makes it sound so sexy.
When we first met, the Blue Jackets sucked. Some things never change.
