RIP Greg Halman

Writing those words twice in less than five minutes when my eyes are still bleary from sleep has not been cool.

I literally just woke up and turned on the laptop, so I have not had time to properly process this news, but Greg Halman has been stabbed to death in his native Netherlands, and his younger brother has been arrested as a possible suspect. Article here. I don’t even know what to say. Like many others, I watched Halman do some pretty neat things here in Seattle and a little bit in Tacoma. Now we’ve lost that. I can’t process this right now, but it has already made my day so much bleaker than the pre-existing condition of Seattle winter weather.

How terrible…
