The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

A sad day in Germany

If you’re a fan of futbol, you probably already know that Hannover 96 goalkeeper Robert Enke took his own life earlier this week.

We do hear the occasional sad story about a player who has long retired who can’t deal with the strain of being away from the spotlight, we hear about players who end in financial straits or alcoholism or what have you…but you so rarely see a sportsman in the prime of their life and their career reaching a point like this. I won’t get overly parochial about it, but it does serve as a reminder that these guys are human beings and sometimes bad things happen to decent people.

I only hope that if there’s anyone else who is in a similar situation, they see the tragedy of this and get help before it’s too late.
