    CNN/SI reports that former Miami Hurricanes (American football) player Stanely Shakespeare was killed when a gust of wind blew him off his boat.

    Yes that is sad. :(

    But, talk about the irony.

    That's more like coincidence than irony. Now if the Miami football team lost a game because hurricane winds blew a last-second field goal attempt wide, then THAT would be irony.

    looking through rose-tinted spectacles...
    It's slightly more bizarre when you consider he played for the NCAA Miami Hurricanes and the NFL team he played for (as a replacement) were the Buccaneers whose new stadium proudly displays a boat at one end zone with a skull on it.

    As for Miami playing in hurricanes, didn't you see that Steelers @ Dolphins game in the early part of last season? Great fun to watch on TV - less fun to be there!
