Statesman-Journal: Ex-Ducks quarterback Harrington injured when SUV hits bicycle.
Can’t help but wonder what the guys over at ESPN have to say about this. They’re probably calling for the driver’s head on a stick.
…good point, amigo…i don’t wanna invest the time to search around that shoddy networks site to see if it’s mentioned ‘cuz it’s sad to see how far they’ve sunk over the years…
…despite being caught up in the ‘other’ aspects of this story, i’d be remiss if i didn’t offer best wishes to harrington…while his injuries aren’t overly severe, ie: life threatening, he did suffer major physical trauma…
…get better soon, amigo & don’t give up the bike…
Agreed. I’m sure he’s had his share of hits from defensive linemen in pro ball, but that can’t compare to getting thrown up and over like he did Sunday by the SUV.
Agreed, but curiosity may get the better of me.
This is just screaming for a parody with mrmichaelsmith and Tony Kornheiser traveling to Portlandia to target cyclists.
…only to find that they’ve taken out on of their own.
