    Words can not describe the sadness here today at BRE Headquarters. The news of the passing of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna (as well as the other 7 people aboard the helicopter) is devastating and hard for anyone to comprehend. As a former helicopter pilot, Wadsy sheds some light on what may have happened with the craft, buy obviously we'll be finding out more info as it comes into the news. However, we also received the news today that long time Pigs Eye Pub head of security David Graves passed away this weekend as well. Dave was the friendly face at the door for 15 years at Pigs Eye, and was there every single weekend joking it up with Goldberg by the DJ booth helping the nights go faster. Our condolences to all the affected families, but definitely not a fun way to start out the week. We do have for you in this episode another "Beer Style Simple" segment from Em Sauter (of as well as your #5PointPhrase and a musical track from an amazing Hartford area musician: Grammy award-winning Charmagne Trip with her song "Lately".

    In the words of Jay Williams of ESPN: "I hope that everybody at home, you give that person next to you -- whatever thing you have wrong in your life with them, it might be small or big -- let that shit go. It doesn't matter. None of that stuff matters, man. This is about life and being precious with every damn second we have here."

    Peace & Love
