The career record of Steve Howe does not begin to tell even a small fraction of what was going in his much troubled life.
Thanks to Gold Star for Robot Boy for the pointer.
Rob Neyer wrote an ESPN Insider piece about Howe. I'd like to excerpt this small part at the end.
"Some will say that Steve Howe was destined to die early, because of the way he lived. But the world's not nearly that easy to figure out. Sometimes the good die young, and the bad live forever. And the rest of us, somewhere in the middle, simply go when our luck runs out."
I know that may sound simplistic to some, but it's so true. I've given up trying to figure out how and when people die. We just do.
