A Sportsroids Tribute to the late Steve Mcnair
July 5, 2009 by MarkM
As fans, we search for the hero. We search for the man who we can believe in even though we might not believe in humanity as a whole. We want nothing more to find that player who we can believe in any situation will choose to fight, often pulling out victorious just because of his heart. Steve Mcnair was one of these heros.
On July 3rd Steve Mcnair was found dead, in a apartment that he had been renting out with one of his “close friends”. The Police have ruled out suicide, when dealing with Mcnair. They are looking at this case as a homicide. The friend that Steve Mcnair was found with has been rumored to be a girlfriend, but in reality that is all here say.
Sahel Kazemi, was the name of the 20 year old woman that Mcnair was found with. There have been reports that she may have been the killer. The police have released that Sahel was found on the floor, while Mcnair was found shot dead sitting on the coach. The sister of Sahel talked about her sister in an article written in USA Today by Kate Howard, when she said,
“She was one, young girl who had so many dreams that they never came true,” Salmani said. “She would never kill anyone, ever. Or anything. Not even a little bug. I want people to know that…All she wanted was to be famous…I think she is now,” she said. “She is everywhere.”
The Police in Tennessee have not gone public on if they have classified Sahel’s death as a homicide or suicide. This fact is a indicator that this might be a brake up or friendship gone wrong. Steve Mcnair has been accused of dating this woman by Sahel’s sister. Regardless Steve Mcnair is survived by his wife and his 4 sons and his millions of fans.
I wanted a chance to put together some more stuff so people could really get a chance to see what kind of man Steve was. He was not your “Sean Taylor” type NFL Star. He was never in the spotlight for doing anything illegal or wrong. Mcnair was a shinning example of what a NFL player should be. Tough and unselfish. Just look at how he handled his retirement speech, like a true professional and model teamate.
Steve Mcnair was a man who realized that this game was bigger than just himself, and I feel that just watching him play and interact with people you could see that. Just look at some of the tributes that are already on You-tube.
Sportsroids.com salutes you Steve Mcnair, wherever you are. Thank you for showing us that pros can play this game at 110%, and giving the players of tomorrow someone to model themselves after. You are one of the NFL’s greatest QB’s.
