    "With all respect, I find the over-memorializing of Edwards way too much, and I think he would agree."

    And yet you too, just like all those that wrote articles, couldn't help but comment on the passing of a great man. No amount of shade will dim the memory of his light.

    With all respect, I find the over-memorializing of Edwards way too much, and I think he would agree.

    He helped a team do reasonably well at putting a ball across a goal line. Why the massive outpouring of adulation?

    The DNews didn't dedicate an entire special section even to President Gordon B. Hinckley when he passed, did they? And did KSL devote one entire local news hour to President Hinckley's passing, as they did for Edwards? I don't think so.

    I mean, this athletic hero worship is way, way, way out of hand.
